Character Map

author - malyfred / 8. 7. 2005

Try to type all these characters on your keyboard:


Not easy, right?:) You obviously need new Character Map plugin in your WordPress if you want to use these weird characters in your posts.

After the simplest possible installation (unpack and activate it) – you get the "Character Map" button in the Quicktags area:

Character Map

New window is opened when you click on this button and the whole new world of never seen characters is waiting for you.

Character Map

Try demo of Character Map!

Select the subset in the menu on the left side or turn it off by clicking on the name of the subset (in the menu or above the characters). Enlarged version of character is shown in the top left corner when you put the cursor over the character. Then you have to just click once and selected character is copied to the post text area.

Finally I have finished my assesment for .Net programming lectures. cnRaytracer is a core of simple and not efficient raytracing program :O). I have to mention that I have used SandBar. This great library is free for non-commercial use and allows your applications to have office-like appearance.

You can try my cnRaytracer. Source code and documentation is attached.

B44 – Rady

author - cnainee / 9. 6. 2005

Inu, to zas bylo odpoledne stravene nad trivialitou. To by clovek nerekl jaky je problem spocitat soucet rady 1 + 3 + 6 + … + n(n+1)/2. Ani cely kontaktlist v Icq mi nepomohl (no teda Ivo jo, ale to uz jsem to pak mel :O)). A dokonce ani Spanelka Ellis, co tu dela poslednim rokem Master of mathematics s tim nehnula. Je to k placi.

Zopakujeme si tedy dva stredoskolske (opet) vzorecky pro soucet jednoduchych rad:

Vypocet vyse uvedene rady:

A k cemu ze jsem to potreboval?
Ke spocitani poctu pruchodu algoritmem:

for i = 1 to n
  for j = 1 to i
    for k = 1 to j
      x = x + 1;

bzzzt, nobody is perfect…

Jimbo Project: Handwriting recognition using an Artificial Neural Network

author - malyfred / 5. 6. 2005


This work deals with recognition of isolated hand-written characters using an artifical neural network. The characters are written on a regular sheet of paper using a special pen that produces biometric signals which are after analized by a computer. In this document we describe our research and tests on different MLP and RBF network architecture trying to find a solution and compare it to the current based on K-means.

GeForce FX Go5200 with latest ForceWare drivers

NVidia does not officially support GeForce Fx Go cards in their ForceWare drivers. But, who wants to wait until laptop manufactures release new version of drivers?

There is solution. Download official ForceWare driver and unzip to any folder. Replace nv4_disp.inf with this file (added Go5200 lines and fixed according Matt's suggestion). Finally go to Device Manager/Display adaptors/GeForce FX Go5200 graphic card and update driver with the new one.

Acer Aspire 1363WLMi – drivers, firmware

author - cnainee / 28. 3. 2005

As a happy new user of Acer Aspire 1363WLMi notebook I found useful to place here some related links.

Official Acer Aspire 1360 driver page

Via Hyperion drivers & Vinyl Stylus audio driver & Ethernet driver

Drivers for Vinyl audio are far from perfection. For reducing most of the noise and cracking I recommend to use drivers obtained thorough Windows Update (not the ones from Via with Vinyl deck) and mute all audio inputs – especially pc speaker, line in and microphone.

nVidia ForceWare driver
Note, that not all versions of ForceWare drivers contain driver for GeForce FX Go graphic accelerator.

Synaptics Touch pad driver

Modem driver

Mobile Sempron processor driver

Acer Aspire 1360 Virtual tour

Model I own has LiteOn SOSW-852S DVD writer that can be easily flashed to support dual layer DVD+R discs.

Firmware page at CDFreaks

Originally I had PRS7 firmware. I tried PST3, 6SO7 but when comes to DVD burning it fails. At this moment best working firmware seems to be PS01.
