NANY 2010 - The Event Concludes
« on: January 01, 2010, 05:34:47 AM »
NANY 2010 has just completed...

2010 has dawned with 26 new applications for the New Year! Congratulations to all our coders and members who have worked so hard to make NANY 2010 a success.

A full wrap of the Event will be coming shortly, but just to whet your appetite, the 26 Successful Entries in this year's NANY are:
General Interest Entries
  • Anuran (1.0.12): A really nicely done, professional, rotating, automatic-prompting personal text log  - great for keeping track of projects you are working on or taking quick notes.
  • What's My Share? (1.0): Have you ever needed to divide up an expense among a group of people? Or split up some reward? The What's My Share online web page uses javascript to make it easy.  Clever, easy to use, and elegant.
  • Piggy Banks (1.0.1 ): Neat rainy-day-type fund tracker with a twist.
  • ClipTrap (1.0.0): Minimalist aggregator of text copied to the clipboard - simple but useful.
  • Bestimate (1.0.1): A small utility designed to help you become more accurate and realistic about your predictions and promises - just a fun little tool for those of us who tend to be overly optimistic about our abilities.
  • SubDiv (1.0): Automatically sort files into subfolders based on date - no options, nothing fancy - but useful for people with folders full of unsorted images or other files.

Plugins for Find and Run Robot (FARR)

Game Prototypes
  • Leap of Faith (1.2009.12.31): A cute little platformer game with no enemies.
  • Twigatelle (0.0.0.0.0.0.0.1): Twigatelle is a pachinko-style game that Twiggles (of the Head in the Clouds web comic) is developing in order to make $1million or more from winning the NANY competition. No-one has yet dared to correct his misunderstanding of how NANY works.

Special Purpose
  • Page Countster: A professional network printer management tool which reports on ink levels and more.
  • LittleRunner (1.0): An easy to use runner's database.
  • Multiboot ISO Maker (Alpha 7): A serious tool for making sophisticated multi-bood cds.
  • Create Dummy File (1.001): Creates files of varying size - specialized for filling up removable usb drives for security reasons.
  • Startup Bully (1.0.0.2): Removes Startup folder shortcuts made by misbehaving applications
  • SwoopoSpy (0.85): Spy on your Swoopo Auctions
  • TrayUpTime: A system tray icon which shows the system up time as a tooltip.
  • j2key: A small autohotkey app that lets you map your typical 10-button joypad (think dualshock clone) to keyboard keys.
  • DupFind (0.9): A simple cross-platform gui duplicate file finder (written in Python -- source only download).
  • OMF (1.0): A new website detailing an open specification for restaurant menus so they can be easily shared, searched and used.
  • Library Management System (0.7):  A python powered, browser-based application for library management (has some pre-requisites).
  • Crush MCP (1.0): An early prototype of a security tool to report on running processes.
  • Artwinauto BlitzType (0.9): An early prototype of an auto-completion typing tool.
  • Reimbursement Tracker (0.3.5): Early version of a tool to help manage a list of reimbursements, with support for printing to a thermal printer.
  • fenixContacts (0.9pre2): Early version of a customisable contacts book

We all need to give a huge thanks and round of applause to Perry Mowbray for making NANY 2010 happen this year.

He is one of the most cheerfully hard working fellows I've met, and it's just not conceivable to me any more that the NANY event would be the same without him.

Thank you Perry!

Congratulations to everyone who participated  :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

Perry will be posting a summary by monday, and then I will immediately send out a special newsletter to our approximately 80,000 email newsletter subscribers summarizing the event, and then send out the mug certificates by email.

Thank you everyone for making this another really fun way to kick off the new year!

Congratulations to all who pledged and followed through with a submission!

Thanks to all of those who supported NANY coders with feedback, publicity, and other volunteer work.

A special thanks to Gothi[c] for handling the website/redmine/hosting/admin aspect of NANY.

A great deal of thanks to Perry for all of his time and effort organizing and handling all of the behind the scenes details of this year's NANY.

And a hugenormously giganterriffic thanks to Mouser, without whom DonationCoder, and by extension NANY, would not exist to bless our lives with it's great community, great software, and great people.
