[Size Converter Widget]

Flash ActionScript Date: Aug 2005

Size Converter Widget This small application calculates rescaled area of a specified rectangular object. It can be used to calculate width based on a different height or new dimensions if an object was R-times larger.

Size Converter can be modified e.g. to calculate how to resize images based on their width and height or to calculate values based on a higher number of parameters.

Quote calculator

The quote calculator was implemented on one of my former web sites from when I was a freelancer. User can specify parameters like type of web site, extra features, number of forms, etc. and get immediate quote estimation.

Shopping cart

This shopping cart was incorporated in a HTML web site. User can create several bags, change their styles and drag-and-drop items into them. Clicking on items displays their information. A list of items in the bag is provided along with a subtotal updated each time an item is added.

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.

Reminder widget

This small Flash application shows the time and date. It also lets user set up a reminder for a certain time with specified text. The widget could be used on community web sites or in user areas.

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.
