Energy Skate Park
About 7 hours of work this
Discussions with Erik Neumann
Collaboration with Dubson
Lagrangian for offset center of mass computation
2d mode to sandbox
Look and Feel
Liquid & Oyoaha implementations.
Liquid & Oyoaha for Energy Skate
“Look and Feel” menu
should discuss possibility of Java 1.5 before resorting to another
due to a Sourceforge service outage.
said it should have been back by Feb 21, but today (Feb 22) status is
still listed as “Unscheduled Outage”
- Process is more or less automated
try again Feb 24
Bounded drag handler
QWI ruler to shared graphics code repository (for use in optical tweezers)
Upcoming Work (in
order of proposed activity)
Collaborate with Dubson to improve physical model
Evaluate new physical model before working on any
Track should bump up when beneath ground
with De Goes/Malley to convert source code repository to Subversion
with De Goes to improve simulation build process & isolate dependencies.
Motion Simulation I
Lots of minor user interface updates
Motion Simulation II
spline physics reimplementation with Dubson?
