Product Slides Gadget

The 'Product Slide Gadget' provides a slide show that automatically displays all the products offered for sale on your Etsy store. When a shopper clicks on the image of one of your products, they are instantly linked to the order page for that product. An example is shown below.

Example Slide Show

To see what your store will look like, go to the setup page.

The gadget can be embedded on any web page or added to anyone's iGoogle home page. Just follow these steps:
1. Setup your store's slide show and get the HTML to embed on a web page like your blog or any other page where you can edit the HTML.
2. Add your slide show to your iGoogle home page.

Although it is not required, please consider making a donation to help us keep offering services like this one.

Setup your store's slide show and get the HTML to embed on a web page
If you have navigated away from the slide show setup page, you can get back to it by clicking here.
When you arrive at the setup page, you will see a form similar to the one shown below. Enter your shop ID in the box labeled, Shop ID, and any Title text you would like in the Title box. To find your shop ID, just go to your Etsy store and look in the address bar of your web browser:

Your shop ID is the number displayed after 'user_id='. For the example shown above, you would enter 5896080 in the form.

The example shown here was setup with nothing entered in the Title box. Click the 'Preview Changes' button and images of your products will begin to appear on the slides. To get the html code used to embed your product slide show in another web page, click on the 'Get the Code' button.

Add your slide show to your iGoogle home page
If you would like to add your slide show to your iGoogle home page, follow the link below:

Add slide show to my iGoogle home page

On that page you will see a form that looks like:

Click the 'Add to Google' button and the gadget will be added to your home page. You will need to do one additional step to customize it for your shop. In the bar along the top of the gadget, click on the small downward pointing triangle in the upper right corner.

You will be presented with a menu like the one shown below:

Click 'Edit settings' and the following form will appear:

Enter your shop ID as described above in the box titled 'Shop ID' and click the 'Save' button. Images of your products will begin to appear in the gadget!

I hope this gadget comes in handy! Please let me know if you have any feedback, ideas, or suggestions.

Shops don't have number IDs. They have names. I can't get this gadget to work.

Cool Math Tricks: Deriving the Divergence, (Del or Nabla) into New (Cylindrical) Coordinate Systems

The following is a pretty lengthy procedure, but converting the divergence, (nabla, del) operator between coordinate systems comes up pretty often. While there are tables for converting between common coordinate systems, there seem to be fewer explanations of the procedure for deriving the conversion, so here goes!

What do we actually want?

To convert the Cartesian nabla

to the nabla for another coordinate system, say… cylindrical coordinates.

What we’ll need:

1. The Cartesian Nabla:

2. A set of equations relating the Cartesian coordinates to cylindrical coordinates:

3. A set of equations relating the Cartesian basis vectors to the basis vectors of the new coordinate system:

How to do it:

Use the chain rule for differentiation to convert the derivatives with respect to the Cartesian variables to derivatives with respect to the cylindrical variables.

The chain rule can be used to convert a differential operator in terms of one variable into a series of differential operators in terms of othe…

Lost Phone

We were incredibly lucky to have both been in university settings when our kids were born.  When No. 1 arrived, we were both still grad students.  Not long after No. 2 arrived, (about 10 days to be exact), mom-person defended her dissertation and gained the appellation prependage Dr. 

While there are lots of perks attendant to grad school, not the least of them phenomenal health insurance, that’s not the one that’s come to mind for me just now.  The one I’m most grateful for at the moment with respect to our kids was the opportunities for sheer independence.  Most days, we’d meet for lunch on the quad of whatever university we were hanging out at at the time, (physics research requires a bit of travel), to eat lunch.  During those lunches, the kids could crawl, toddle, or jog off into the distance.  There were no roads, and therefore no cars.  And, I realize now with a certain wistful bliss I had no knowledge of at the time, there were also very few people at hand that new what a baby…

Lab Book 2014_07_10 More NaI Characterization

Summary: Much more plunking around with the NaI detector and sources today.  A Pb shield was built to eliminate cosmic ray muons as well as potassium 40 radiation from the concreted building.  The spectra are much cleaner, but still don't have the count rates or distinctive peaks that are expected.
New to the experiment?  Scroll to the bottom to see background and get caught up.
Lab Book Threshold for the QVT is currently set at -1.49 volts.  Remember to divide this by 100 to get the actual threshold voltage. A new spectrum recording the lines of all three sources, Cs 137, Co 60, and Sr 90, was started at approximately 10:55. Took data for about an hour.
Started the Cs 137 only spectrum at about 11:55 AM

Here’s the no-source background from yesterday
In comparison, here’s the 3 source spectrum from this morning.

The three source spectrum shows peak structure not exhibited by the background alone. I forgot to take scope pictures of the Cs137 run. I do however, have the printout, and…
