Lifehacker Download of the Day: GridMove
I work on a 21" widescreen monitor, so I rarely maximize windows to cover my full desktop. In fact, I find that working with two windows side-by-side is a major productivity boon for me. As such, I'm loving GridMove, which makes it easy for me to snap windows into clean, pre-defined spaces so that I don't have to resize them and drag them around to make the most of my screen real estate.

THE 2006 DONATIONCODER.COM C++ BUILDER DONATIONWARE PROGRAMMING CONTEST RESULTS

About C++ Builder

We are huge fans of Borland's C++ Builder here at DonationCoder.com. It's used in many of our more elaborate windows programs, and it's one of the most powerful tools for C++ programmers that want to do rapid development of rich Windows GUI applications.

About Judging The Results

There were many excellent submissions to the contest, and choosing winners was difficult and several of the decisions could honestly have gone either way. Judging was based on a number of criteria including completeness, documentation, polish, the existence of alternative free tools, the possibilities of improvement, the estimated difficulty of implementation, the usefulness/fun of the entry, and more. We categorized entries as described on our contest rules page, in order to ensure some diversity, but also awarded prizes to individual coders based on multiple entries.

Download and Try For Yourself!

One of the main points of this contest was to encourage the development of donationware software. On behalf of the authors we invite you to download and use these programs. If you find them useful, will you please consider making a donation to the authors to support their continued development?

SMIRF Chess Program and Engine

"SMIRF covers a lot of chess downwards compatibly extending variants like Chess960 (Fischer Random Chess) including traditional 8x8 chess. But its main goal is to open the world of 10x8 chess to everyone by supporting e.g. Janus Chess or the new Capablanca Random Chess. Though playing already well as a beta, this SMIRF project still is under development and thus will be updated from time to time."
