    Since I took java first year, I made a black jack game, just user input no graphics, with betting involved. It wasnt that bad, the main purpose was to learn inheritance.

    >What's the best program that you have made, be it in any language, what's the one that you are most proud of?
    All of the above would be the operating system from hell that I patched into obedience. It wasn't my program originally, but at current about 70% of the code is mine.

    This is difficult...I've got a few:

    1)My PacMan game because it was the first Windows game I've ever made...C++
    2)My current RPG, MoA - This is one of the biggest projects I've done, and I'm enjoying making it...C++ (actually, they're all C++, so...)
    3)Not a program per-say, but a console "graphics" library that I'm making, called ConsoleDraw (like a console version of DirectDraw). In it, you can load up bitmap-type files and display them, draw simple shapes and lines, perform animations, and my personal favorite: sprites!

    Whoa cool. An IRC client. That would be awsome to write. Where did you learn all about it?

    I wrote a port scanner the other day(C++), the crap code I posted on this board was deliberate: it would take like a week to find a vunerable portuseing it, but thanks my my cool winsock book, it now does it much faster. It also has options to scan known vunerable ports like the one Kazaa uses. Other than that, when I started C++ (and programming in general), I wrote a calculator in console and I thought that was really cool .

    I got bored during my intro to VB class last year, so I wrote an encrypted client-server relay chat program entirely in VB. I'm still working on it.

    1. I made a chat program in UNIX, very similar to mIRC, which is now being used by many colleagues of mine in my ex-company to chat with each other.
    2. A Tic-Tac-Toe game in unix, which can be played between host to host, in UNIX again.

    Hmm, hard to say...

    I've made an Othello game in LISP. It has the ugliest code in history, but it's the only program I've made that includes AI.

    I've also made a drawing program for DOS (C/C++). It's file format is non-portable, but I'm still proud of it.

    Third, I've made a program to edit INI files (Windows C/C++). It's the most useful, but nothing spectacular.

    Oh my god! I hate that language... too many damned parenthesis!

    As for myself, I made a program that loaded a CIV3 save game file and changed all my stone age units (warriors, archers, etc.) into tanks cause I'm a dirty little cheater. Any primitive naval units were changed into battleships. Any used movement points were reset and health was restored to 100%. Never could figure out how to reset whether or not the unit had fired or not that turn. This was the first program I made that used any STL so its kind of special to me.

    An inter-process/inter-processor communications library that allowed a non technical programmer to easily communicate with other programs running on the same or other, (VAX), machines in a DECNet network. It allowed spare capacity on standby machines to be used by overloaded duty machines. Written in FORTRAN 77.

    Saved a fortune in machine upgrades over the years.

    As soon as I saw adrian as the last poster, I knew everyone was going to get whomped.

    Best app? Likely the full featured Strategy/Arcade futuristic war game I just finished writting in DirectX. Reminiscent of BattleTek ("board" game) if anyone can remember that. Giant robots, tons of gagetry, missiles everywhere, explosions, overheating cores, you get the picture.
