A (somewhat embarassing) part of writing: in Austrian HTBLAs (high schools with a vocational focus), one may opt to write a semi-scientifc thesis in order to skip parts of the Matura (A-levels).
May I present to you:
In general, the thing does not stand the test of time. Some stray observations while re-reading it as a, you know, scientist:
The literature research is sub-par, and it shows. This is in part because I mostly researched online, and online resources were much less developed and I did not exactly know what to search for. In terms of textbooks, I could not find anything remotely on my level and relevant to me.
Of course, literature research is the responsibility of the author, and with more effort from my side, it would have become better. However, it does show me, as I am supervising students now, how crucial it is to point the student to the right literature and then gradually educate them to find resources themselves.
In the web client (Section 5.3), I reinvented AJAX using a refreshing textbox in a separate frame. I don't think I uncovered AJAX in my literature research, even though it had existed since 1999, partly because there was essentially no website using it at the time.
As a postmortem, having an expert in these matters would have been an immense help, and I think also as HTL thesis supervisor, one should strive to connect the student to experts if one is out of their depth.
