About a month ago in a blog, I introduced what I described as a “spectral attenuation monitor.” At the time I only had an image from MS Works that…Continue

In order to prevent my programs from freezing up while running long calculations, I generally run the calculations on separate threads. In Java, this process can be accomplished by separating the GUI from processing. In the code below, a thread for an instance of MyProcessing would be invoked using start(): e.g. “(new MyProcessing()).start();” would run indefinitely until T is made null. T can be made null by calling stop() or by directly making T null. Often when the GUI is closing, I…Continue

This blog contains some snippets of code that I tend to use in Java. I acknowledge that somebody else writing this blog might include different code. Except for a short course at Sun Educational Services, most of my Java programming skills are self-taught. I’m unsure if people with formal backgrounds in computer science might have different styles and conventions. Mine have been shaped primarily by my needs.
Creating a Graphical User Interface…Continue

This blog is about the peculiar nature in which software sometimes gets developed. I hope that many readers will recognize the relevance of data science in the examples taken from my own projects. I propose that development is the product of creativity more than accreditation. Creativity is something complicated that interacts with a person over his or her life circumstances. Many people know how to write . . . sentences and paragraphs. However, the ability to write well does not necessarily…Continue

In this post, I discuss the basic characteristics of code that I have personally used to extract online data - in a process these days often called data-mining. I intend to cover some general features. Those that wish to do so can also compile the coding samples.
Over the years, I have programmed in a number of computer programming languages including Visual Basic, Perl, Python, and LISP (AutoLISP). The coding samples on this blog are written in Java, my language of…Continue
