The two Java applets used on this website were inspired
by software found in the public domain on the Web.
While I assume full responsiblity for the website's software,
the following developers deserve credit for their original implementations.
D. van der Schaar
devised several disparate applets which employ various effects on text and images.
I replaced the applet usage with a framework that incorporated
these transformations into a single entity,
added some effects, and negated any restrictions on the type of content
(text or image) usable by the effects. Further, I extended or otherwise
modified several of the effects, as well as adding a few.
Most of the transformations can be found in the better (and expensive)
digital image processing books I've seen, but unfortunately as
mathematical matrix operations and not as source code.
is one of many developers who have built a chessgame-viewing applet.
While his applet runs well on his site,
it does not operable correctly once downloaded.
I modified the applet to address such problems,
and changed the basic use of the applet
so that a single game is displayed initially.
I also made other modifications to address layout and
a variety of other user interface issues.
