Description:

Dice is a simple (but gauss-distributed) dice for the plasma desktop.

I am thinking about using it to grade my students ;-)

It is a python plasmoid and uses random.gauss() to distribute the grades gaussian-like.

Version 0.1 is very basic: Only a label to display the result and a button to roll the dice. Eye-candy (and maybe artwork) is scheduled for the next version.

I meant no insult..

Gauss is wrong distribution for die throw simulation, that I believed this plasmoid is all about..how ever useless it might be.

I did not consider grading students:) as valid purpose of this plamoid, in which case it makes sense to use gauss.

Why did you use gauss-distribution?
I believe it should have been uniform distribution, unless cube is unbalanced;)

But really gauss can not be applied in this case , considering only that one cube is 'thrown' at a time.

look at this article:

Ever graded students? They don't want their grades box-distributed. While their might be lots of 1 (A's), there will be the same number of 6 (F's)...

I don't think a normal stand-alone dice is needed for anything in computers (unless you take your PC to the table where you play with your friends).

But choosing the distribution and the element-range is something that is planned.

BTW: I know statistics, I do them everyday for a living;-)
