Seth's Geeky Projects
Most of these are ancient hacks are no longer useful, if they ever
were, but I want to do my part to clutter up the web.
things I've used in the past ten years
- Georges Seurat coloring book
- It's a silly joke. In truth, his art is far more sophisticated
than the joke implies. It's worth looking closely and deeply at the
paintings and learning more about the context. But enjoy the joke
before you spoil your ignorance! :)
- A geo-data visualization tool. Not the first of its kind,
but non-proprietary and works reasonably well.
- libjpeg (8d) with image padding capability added to jpegtran. For when you want your jpegs to be larger, but you don't want to add a decode/encode cycle and the artifacts that come with it. The padded area comes out as a nice solid color of your choice, as long as you choose medium grey.
- A hacked version of xmatrix that outputs to files. I used this to make geeky start up sequences for my Android devices.
- probability calculator
- A simple conditional probability calculator. I needed to
Also, the UI for similar calculators I found out there is
terrible. The code is almost, but not quite, a
general-purpose forward-chaining inference engine.
old things I haven't deleted yet
- Henry Fingerprint Classifier
fingerprint classification system.
- I hate when I untar something and it spews files into my
current directory. For a long time my solution was to be in an
empty directory. Now I use my untar script. It peeks into the
tarfile (even if it's compressed) and untars it into a
subdirectory if it thinks it's not going to be well behaved.
