While a lot of programmers start with the classic 'Hello world' printout in their classrooms, I on the other hand, started with Tic-Tac-Toe as my first application! Growing up, I have always had a huge interest for technology and computers, on the consumer end of course. In addition, I am a huge fan of mind and/or mathematical activities: be it jeopardy, monopoly or solving for X – situations where one has to brain exercise, I am all game. The idea to write my first application, this game, came directly from my personality traits. I wanted to challenge my own mind, for fun, to test my problem-solving skills with a touch of creativity.
Since the days of ENIAC, mankind has used computing technology as a tool to solve problems. Whether it is used for a good or bad cause – computers are merely tools for us to utilize. I am a very practical minded young man and embrace making computers work for us, not the other way around. The idea for this application came from the desire to make something relatively simple, yet useful.
This application was inspired from the idea of the above program ‘Autoclicker’ , except I decided to develop it as a separate application. This tool can be used to automate or script repetitive mouse movements and clicks.
My friend challenged me to create this application for him. Suppose one would forget to log-out of their computer, for example at their workplace, providing ability for others to access sensitive information on their computers. Of course, the idea here is for this “backup” feature to work autonomously, without having the user to interact with the program apart from setting it up.
Now to solve this puzzle the major question was – how would the computer know that their owner had left their computer? The solution I came up with was based on a requirement of having the computer and the persons cell phone to be connected to the same network. The computer could then ping the cellphone at user specified intervals. If the user would go too far away, e.g. leaves the building, then the latency would exceed the threshold and when there are enough specified ticks (defaulted to 3) then the computer would automatically Log Off the Windows user-account.
This is an application that scans video frames in a given file and reports the first blue frame in the video. The search is performed from the tail end of the video towards the beginning. The practical use of this program is in the analog video world where blue frames are considered as empty video signal, typically at the very end of video tapes. Thus this tool helps to identify the beginning and end frames of a video file autonomously which could be chained with a media transcoder application.
ISO Author is a GUI-extension for BatchMux and ImgBurn applications in order to create Video-DVD disc image files. The main benefit of this GUI is the ability to create a unlimited list of DVD-Authoring jobs with a press of a button
