Seth's Geeky Projects
The second law of thermodynamics states that
whenever you do something constructive, there is a less-organized waste
product. This is mine.
things I've used in the past ten years
- A geo-data visualization tool. Not the first of its kind,
but non-proprietary and works reasonably well.
- 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.
- A fork of Shattered Pixel Dungeon
- My kid and I collaborated on a few new game features: wand of anti-magic, flying carpet artifact, and forgetful challenge.
We play this version, so I try to integrate upstream releases without too much delay.
- At the height of the Wordle craze, I wrote a brute force solver
and solved all possible games in my own "harder" mode.
- My AI MSc thesis project's classification tasks redone using deep learning.
- 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! :)
old things I haven't deleted yet
- A hacked version of xmatrix that outputs to files. I used this to make geeky start up sequences for my Android devices.
- 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.
