What kind of programs are you guys working on, at work or at home? Are they PC based. main frame or embeded? I am currently wrapping up a cad program and I am thinking about to do some sort of ado data base after that.

I'm doing a little "pet project" based on minix.

I'm making a font library for use with SDL. I just finished the basics of it today.
Currently designing a library for making 2D games with SDL. The font library stemmed from that.

I'm attempting to put the entire Internet into one big photoshop collage.

03-19-2002, 05:03 PM
Ihave already done that. If you want I can e mail you the collage. I also have a hardcopy of the internet that can be handy. I will attach it as a zip

03-19-2002, 05:04 PM
Can you send it un-zipped, cos I don't have WinZip.:)

I'm about to implement a client-server User-Interface to our 50 tables, 150.000.000 records database including CRM/Callcenter Management and everything that belongs to any client server system ( users, passwords, security, networking etc ) using .NET/C#.

Obviously we are doing this in a team. It would take years to try this alone.

03-19-2002, 05:10 PM
Sure can do. Although my Hotmail acount keep on giving me these strange buffer overflow errors.

03-19-2002, 05:14 PM
Sounds like my next project * 10000.

C# .NET + databases sounds like a match made in heaven. Although I will stay to C++/mfc/ado/sql on my project

Im trying to create a simple package of programs. Two packages are planned, one for online the other for offline.

Some of the offline packages include:

a sort program (not much use just wanted to do it) that will sort 1-1001 numbers 1-1001 times using about 9 different sorts and then display their average compares and swaps. Almost finished with this one.

a command line calculator that can take one line such as:
1+4+(3-4)*2+2^2^2/8%4 and be able to output a correct answer. As well as some other commands like /prime 5, or /fib 5, or /curs 5, *5. There will be two versions of this, one for the command prompt and another in a window.

a node outline program. Its pretty simple.

a self correcting node program that requires every node be connected as evenly as possible with im thinking a max of 3 connections. Self correcting in that if a node suddenly drops or apears the network of nodes can easily restructure themselves. A list of 2 generations will be kept at each node in case of an entire split in the network.

another self correcting node program, probably will be just an add on part of the previous one, but this time it will accomidate load abilities on each node so that though there is still a max number of nodes it is not requires to be that many connections. This is so that low load nodes dont take on more than they can handle and high load nodes take more responsibility but are not themselves overbalanced.

There are other ideas but I am focusing mostely on offline for now.

A text-MUD. All new coding, nothing stock.

03-19-2002, 10:23 PM
As of now I'm finishing my midterm for my humanities class, which isn't programming related at all.

Still train spotting. Looking closer at the wheels of the worlds longest and heaviest trains.

Debugging my client UI, trying to resist the feature creep.
Only about 32,000 wheels per day, 7 days a week. Generating 1.5Gb+ of data, without the images, per day.

Not that much to show on one little window.

I'm messing around with linked lists right now, and I'm planning on making a class to deal with numbers up to a few thousand digits long. But I'll probly get bored and make another stupid card game instead.

I am creating a C++ IDE like VC++ for MINGW. The editor part is almost finished. A little bit of intellisense is left. I will post an alpha within a few weeks.
