Ultra GZIP is a tool which attempts to achieve the maximum possible gzip compression (regardless of the required runtime). It is suitable to construct archives which are changed rarely and read very often.
The Website Builder project above, which is used to build this website, uses Ultra GZIP to create gzip archives of the website's static contents. These archives can be served by the web server, which reduces both the load on the server and the time to transfer the contents to the user.
The readme file in the project root folder describes how to use this tool. You can download everything as zip archive.
The in my course on distributed computing, I provide several examples. I show how sockets can be used both in Java and C, how to use Java Servlets, and Java Server Pages, etc. All the source code of the examples is included in a GitHub repository and can also be downloaded directly as zip archive. I will keep updating and extended this set of examples.
LaTeX is a “programming language for documents.” It is the most-often used way to write scientific publications. I contribute two small projects to this wide field:
figure* environments in LaTeX cannot break across pages. They may, however, include sub-figures. If you have more sub-figures than what fits on one page, you have to manually divide them into two separate figure environments. Doing this is not only tedious, it is virtually impossible to be automated. Such automation may be wanted if you either don't want to do it by hand or if your sub-figures (along with their captions) are automatically generated by some tool.
The package figureSeries provides
You can download it as single LaTeX style file or as zip archive including examples.
Here you can find my beamer templates for slides which loosely fit to the corporate design of the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) [中国科学技术大学]. You can download them as zip as well.
In many situations, we need some small icons for file type and such and such. Since the copyright of such icons is often unclear, I decided to paint my own. You can find them here or download everything directly as zip archive.
