    Useful Programs

    What programs would you like to see available that aren't now, anything goes, give me your suggestions.
    What programs would make the world a better place?

    If you are tring to help the world... try making a program that does my HW for me... or I'll have to stay up all night doing physics/calculus...

    The reason: I'm actually a superhero in my dreams, and I've saved this world from destruction unnumbered times... but that only happens if I go to bed on time

    Sorry, I really don't know what this world needs... cause I'm not from this world, just visiting

    A program to do physics and calculus homework
    Mmmmmmmmmm

    might take me a while, so you better stop being a superhero for a while and do some homework.

    As to what the world needs I don't really care, just put that in to attract the hippy user's. All I want to do is get some creative minds together and think up something new.

    I guess I'm the wrong person for this, because this creative mind [and superhero who loves milk] has some integrals to solve

    Just can't get myself out of this chair I think I'm glued on... what about a program that kills the screen and sends the user to get some link and cookies in the kitchen?

    A program that interacts with your answering machine and lets you create certain "away messages" like you can in AIM (AOL Instant Messenger).

    You mean like a different message for different people?

    Yeah, that would be neat. You might need to use ASM, though.

    Yeah, voice recognition which activates a specific message. Could be done and probably already has, but it's an interesting idea.

    No, you wouldn't need voice recognition, you could just recognize the phone number (like caller ID) and then take the appropriate action.

    Ah, but what if they didn't phone from a known number.

    Actually, what I meant was, that you could set a different "away message" for you answering machine depending on what you were doing. Like, maybe if you were gone at the grocery store, you could have a message saying, "I am at the grocery store right now" or if you were at a movie you could say, "I am at a movie right now" or whatever creative message you wanted to leave. But instead of recording it each time, you could just record it onto your computer as a wav or mp3 file, and then depending on where you were going, you could set that away message, and then when somebody tried to call, the computer and answering machine would be working together and it would play that specific away message.

    Do you think it's possible to do in C?

    I've been in need for a good video editing program! I have Adobe Premiere and Ulead VideoStudio, but the second one is not powerful at all, and neither one or the other does videos fast!, I have to wait normally three times the lenght of the video!
    make a real-time video edition program, but make it with lots of options.

    >>I've been in need for a good video editing program!

    Sounds Cool. Big project, though!!

    >>A program that interacts with your answering machine and lets >>you create certain "away messages"

    This would be a trivial program, the deal is it would definately require a building a new answering machine ( or at least revamping the hardware of an old one)!

    >>If you are tring to help the world... try making a program that >>does my HW for me... or I'll have to stay up all night doing >>physics/calculus...

    I will gladly write one for you for a fee !!

    I have actually just written a polynomial solving program which will be ported to windows in the next few days. It takes an inputs such as "12x2 + 10x +2" and spit's out the same string as
    "(2x + 1)(6x + 2)".

    I could write physics calculators too.



    I think a good program that would make the world a better place (for programmers!) would be a "smart" compiler that fixes simple syntax mistakes much like a spell-checker!
    Code:
    bool fun(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow(std::exp(1), std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
        * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1)*(1 << (value + 2))))
        .real() > 0;
    }
