Multiplication – Maya Style

May 25th, 2009 makii Comments off

I just found a video which demonstrates a quite interesting approach how to multiply numbers using pen and paper just by counting some cross-points in lines. Check it out!

Tradingbird – Features

June 13th, 2008 makii Comments off

Finally, TradingBird goes GA!

You guys ask for features? Here are my $ 0.02:

  • You offer a ranking of diversified portfolios which have to comply with certain rules of engagement. Now why not offer diversified rankings for assets or orders, too? If a user is only interested in items which comply to this rules of the diversified ranking, it would be nice to have the ability to select the buys, sells and holdings which associate with these portfolios.
  • Already mentioned by others, without this feature the trading form is most inconveniently: When selling assets from my depot, the number of pieces I own should be transfered to the sell-from.
  • Minor issue: If I’m not mistaken, the default sort in a lot of views like my depot positions is by asset name, descending. Descending means Z-A… This should be changed to ascending sort order I guess.
  • Missing resource entry As you can see in this image, when I’m logged in and go to the depot rankings of my contacts, the page title reads “startMyContactsRankings.jsp#BROWSER_TITLE“. Guess someone forgot to update a resource bundle…
  • Typo A minor typo on the next page, transactions of my contacts, the browser title reads: “Wertpapier-Transaktionen bet Tradingbird [...]

So far my current suggestions.
