Jigsaw

This is a jigsaw puzzle that was used in the game Mayan Madness. The pieces are placed randomly throughout the screen each time a game starts. Developer can insert pieces of a different image and assemble it from the Flash development environment. The algorithm takes care of the rest - random positioning and testing of the end game state.

Lottery

Choose 10 out of 100 numbers, press a button and the program generates three random numbers. You win if all the three are found in the set of numbers you crossed.

Bouncy Ball

Jump with the bouncy ball through the platforms and collect golden treasures to get to the next level. This demo offers three levels to play. At the beginning of each level, you get a code that can be used later in order to skip to the level using the Load game feature.

Uwo

Get through three exciting desert levels on a motorbike without crashing. But don’t forget to pick up hitchhikers - otherwise you won’t be able to progress. Collect a code after each level to be able to return to it.

pyCreeper

The main purpose of pyCreeper is to wrap tens of lines of python code, required to produce graphs that look good for a publication, into functions. It takes away your need to understand various quirks of matplotlib and gives you back ready-to-use and well-documented code.

Citations count fails to measure the impact of research

Academic career progress is often judged by so-called "h-index", that measures how much your research is being cited. I recently had a detailed look at what exactly the citations, specifically those reported by Google Scholar, amount to. Only a relatively small fraction of the reported citations corresponded to research being applied or reproduced in a meaningful way.
