    Hello Eranga,

    I noticed word frequency table on the right. I guess this is related to your thesis? Is it? :) Did you decide on the subject?

    Hi,

    Actually this is no directly related with my thesis. I've plan to do kind of data modeling/analyzing using simulations. Hope to do it in conceptual manner. :) I'll let you know what exactly working on once finalized it.

    By the way, how about the Wikiread? What you though of it, any suggestion?

    Ok. Let me know ...

    I am not sure. I only noticed the word frequency thing at the right. I could not understand its purpose from a wiki reader's perspective.

    Okay, let me explain then. Basically you can see two panels in the page. On left-side you can see the Wikipedia (actually wiki articles) and on right-side you can see the word frequency of the page on left-side panel. Once you click on any work in the word frequency column, you can see the set of sentence in the words column of the right-side panel.

    just hover the mouse on that Word column you can see that complete sentence is highlighted. So you can easily read the content. You can search the Word frequency as well on Word Frequency column.

    And also you can search anything that you want to search on the Wiki articles on the left-side panel, there is a search option. If you know the exact wiki URL paste it in the address bar of the left-side panel and click GO.

    Ok. i got it better now.

    I generally dont read whole wiki articles. So, it is not useful for me.

    But as a tool here are some comments:

    - I got an error several times. It asked me to press Home key. The reason might be my own internet connection because it is weird lately.
    - The interaction with the user interface is fast. Requires minimal effort. This is very good.

    I cant comment much because as far as i see it is more like a personal tool. I mean i dont think that many people will use this for a common problem. May be i am wrong.. but good luck. ;)

    First of all, thanks a lot for the comment. :)

    Actually that error may occur due to the more access to my server. You know, it's not a high-end server I've. So accessing many at the same time is a problem actually. I've already sent the link to few of my friends and some of them has the same problem too. At the time anyway I cannot buy a high-end server for this, but if the potential is there I could possibly do something.

    About your conclusion, actually that's what I want to know too. Still I cannot say that many people will use it. More important thing I found in last few days is that most of the people are really not read the wiki, may be I'm wrong, but from the feedback that's what I conclude. Normally they search on Google, and end-up with different places. If I've see this is not using many people, then something wrong with my concept. :( Let see, have to wait and see. :)

    Thanks again, and if you can please show the Wikiread to somebody and let me know there comments.

    I'm waiting for more here from all you in my Java-Forums' friends. :)
