Post New Requests Here / IDEA: logout when monitor turns on
« on: April 10, 2010, 12:14 AM »
Hi,
Could someone make a program that will log out of Windows XP when my monitor is turned on? When I press the button to turn on my monitor, I want the computer to immediately log out before displaying anything.

Thanks!

Post New Requests Here / IDEA: DVD extract frames
« on: March 27, 2010, 07:17 PM »
Hi,
I need a program that can load a DVD and extract each frame into separate image files. It should extract them from the DVD drive itself without converting the DVD to ie: avi. The program should not skip any frames and the image format should be lossless. The filenames should contain the frame number and if possible, the chapter number.

Thanks!

Post New Requests Here / IDEA: hidden image finder
« on: April 02, 2009, 01:49 PM »
Could someone make a program that can test whether an image contains a resized, transparent version of another image? The images I need to test contain hidden images that can't easily be found because they are almost completely transparent.

For example, the program could take this image:
http://pro.corbis.com/images/42-21127424.jpg?size=67&uid={a5b3f817-e953-4276-9eb7-8c980d4f9a13}
and this watermark:
http://cachens.corbis.com/pro/logo.gif
and would calculate that it is probable that a version of the watermark is in the image.

Thanks!

Post New Requests Here / The Incredible Machine solver
« on: December 23, 2008, 09:44 PM »
I always wanted to make a distributed computing project that would use brute force to find interesting solutions to puzzles from The Incredible Machine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Incredible_Machine).

I found a Flash clone called The CCL Game: http://www.cclonline.com/pc/hardware/software/thecclgame/ccl_winter_game.swf

There are 10 levels to brute force.

I made a .swf file client that can be distributed. It tests tile arrangements that my server sends it and reports back whether it was a solution. However, it isn't ready to be released as a distributed computing project because it isn't optimized or secured and my server can't handle the project.

Is there anyone here with experience in creating distributed computing projects who would be interested in helping me get this project running?

Post New Requests Here / REQUEST: audio comparer
« on: November 09, 2008, 09:28 PM »
Could someone please write a program that takes two 1-second-long wav files and outputs a number that represents the difference between the sounds? It would output 0 if the samples are exactly the same. If the sounds are a good match it would output a small number but if they are very different it would output a large number. My goal is to be able to replace the sound during one second of an audio file with one of my own sounds, and have it sound as close as possible to the original.

Post New Requests Here / IDEA: DFT to GEDCOM converter
« on: December 16, 2007, 02:08 AM »
A GEDCOM is a file that contains family tree information. GEDCOM files can be loaded into most genealogy software.
Here is the GEDCOM format:

DFTCOM2 is a java program that converts a GEDCOM into a data file and shows the family tree in an applet.

Here is the DFT data file format:
http://www.dftcom2.co.uk/web/dftdbs.zip

Between 2003 and just last month, there have been many posts on the DFTCOM2 forum from people who have lost their original GEDCOM files and need a program to convert their DFTs to GEDCOM. However, the DFTCOM2 project was discontinued and no one ever made the converter.

This is a fairly simple project; it is mostly parsing information from one format to another and adding relationships between individuals. I was almost able to make the converter myself, but the numbers that determine the relationships are confusing. However, completing this project wouldn't take more than a day and would help a lot of people recover their family trees.
