README

A simple PHP lib that can color nick names to make them distinguishable in a chat room. Each color is unique to the name so each name keeps its color regardless of the time, system or whatever circumstances. This is done using a sha1 hash on the name and taking the first 7 characters in it hex representation to calculate the color.
