Desktop Coral - Clever concept
The other day we wrote about a nifty Yahoo widget called Informer that's an extremely customizable toolbar. One of the commenters, "Change", was wondering whether there's a way to reserve the screen space associated with toolbar like Informer so that other applications won't cover it up.. I spent a few minutes searching on the Internet before coming up with the free DesktopCoral.. I have to admit that this is quite a clever concept, and there are a variety of reasons where it could be useful.

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?

A program that can help in solving Minesweeper game. 8)
SomeStepsAfterS.png

Download zip files with program and a help file: Here.



Editor's Note: The description and screenshots do not do this tool justice - it is quite amazing to see it in action.

It actually finds the normal windows minesweeper executable running, then takes screenshot of the window(!) then figures out the grid given the screenshot, then solves as much as it can, and then sends clicks back over to the minesweeper exe.

It actually made me laugh out loud in suprise and pleasure as i was watching it work.. pretty damn amazing..

see the help file inside for a bit on the mathematics of how it works.

Random MixTape Maker

blog clipart
Random Mix Tape Maker allows you to create custom playlists from multiple mp3 file sources on your system.

You can use these playlists to burn fresh, always new compiliations to a CD or drag & drop to your portable mp3 player, or just save a playlist for your listening pleasure. You have complete control as to how the playlists are created. Controlling such things as song length, compilation size, compilation length, and files/directories you want to exclude allows you to custom tailor playlist creation to fit your needs.

Making "mix tapes" is as old an idea as the tape recorder itself; Random Mix Tape Maker was made to create a completely unique list of your favorite songs every time you use it, thus taking the hassle of searching through specific songs every time you want to make a mix of your own. Use it to make fresh mixes for your own listening pleasure, or use it to turn your friends on to your genre of music.

Development Cleaning Suite

blog clipart
Here is my initial submission for this contest.  The suite is fully functional and has performed well for me (I just cleaned 400+ MB of temporary files from my development machine).

The "Development Cleaning Suite" (DCS) is a utility that provides a cleanup handler for Widows 2000 and above.  Additionally, the suite includes a configuration tool as well as an independant host (DCSUtil) for the handler - providing for additional benefits and more advanced features.

An example of its presence with the Windows Disk Cleanup Tool:



Clicking the "Review" button shows a detailed view of all files found and allows you to indicate which files should / should not be deleted.
