The NANY Challenge for 2009
has just a couple of days to run until the official release! The NANY Challenge is DonationCoder
's annual Software Challenge where coders of all experience levels are challenged to pledge a N
pplication for the N
ear and release it on January 1, 2009. This is not a contest where the entries are judged to see who has written the best programme, but a fun celebration to create something new: all entrants "win" a NANY 2009 Mug
for their efforts.
The Entries are posted on the NANY 2009 Forum
, and currently there are 21 Pre-Releases posted from the 39 Pledges (and there are 12 Teasers just waiting to be released)! It's a great place to get a sneak preview of the upcoming applications, offer functionality suggestions and even help by beta testing the pre-releases.
The Pledge Deadline has already been extended, but we're still getting some last minute Pledges to this year's Challenge. If you know a programmer who you think would get a kick out of participating in this fun event, please let them know!Teaser / Entry Focus

embeds text into Windows executable files using interchangeable assembly opcodes, it does so by finding valid opcode strings and replaces them with "like-minded" opcodes therefore not changing the size or operability of the file. PESplash has a number of uses, for example for tracking who is downloading your files (if released in the wild), sending messages, etc. NOTE: PESplash can NOT be used on a compressed or "packed" file: doing so will render the file useless.NANY 2009 PROGRESS REPORT - The Volunteer VoiceDropCommandDropCommand

is a simple website that helps encourage you to spend less money, and helps you track how little you spent. It will track how much money is spent every day (not the details at this point), on non-essential items. When you eat out for lunch, or buy things that you don't need, etc. Other features that will be added: Goal-setting and targets, savings goals etc. For fun, some social features like a user-ranking can be added.SQLite ScrubSQLite Scrub
erases sensitive information from FireFox3 form, cookies and history and any other applications that use a SQLite database for storage. Firefox lets you fine-tune which passwords you want it to remember, but this flexibility does not extend to other historical data it stores, such as form history. If you choose to let Firefox remember the forms you fill out, it will remember them all, even those on secure (https) websites. For example, if you've ever entered your bank account or credit card numbers on a form, Firefox remembers them. This may or may not be a concern, but I am paranoid about a rogue extension that could access Firefox's form data and deliver it to its maker.
SQLite Scrub will run at Windows startup and perform the cleanup, or it can be run manually.NANY 2009 PROGRESS REPORT - The Volunteer Voice
