I will look at adding other features and perhaps use a different programming language to get rid of Net dependancies.

I will try to compile under Net 3.5 and see if it does not crash. Thanks Renogade.

I can across a program that makes some nice Polygons and Stars, as well as a number of other interesting patterns. I made a few modifications to make the screen bigger. The program lacks the ability to change colours, line and fill styles, as well as the ability to save the graphics. You will have to do a print screen to save. The program was compiled on Net 2010, so the Net Runtime libraries are needed.

I have been creating, modifying and playing around with NET programs lately (creative streak I think), so this is the last program to upload at the moment. I hope people enjoy some of my uploads. This NET programming is harder to understand (A steeper learning curve).

Anyhow, BYE for now my fellow Donation Coders.
Hope this year is better than the last one (2012)

Regards ED.

This program may come in useful for students that need to practice their Algebra skills. The program makes some harder Algebra equations that you need to solve. Once you solve the equation, you put the answer into the program to see if it is correct. The program was made using VB Net 2010, so you will need the Net Runtime library. Hopefully the screen capture below shows what I mean:

For some reason the program crashes on earlier versions of the Net runtime libraries loaded on XP, but works on Net Version 4 runtimes with Windows 7 loaded.

Have fun solving those damn Maths Algebraic Equations. Perhaps use a pen and paper, as some equations might be a bit challenging.

Regards ED

Sometimes I come across some nice colour schemes on the Net but I don't know their codes. With this program you can drag a cross onto the colour to find:

a)  It's Hex code (Html and VB)
b)  It's RGB colour (paint prgrams)
c)  It's integer colour (VB)
d)  It's HSL colour (photo editing software)

You can even save the colours as well as make the program stay "on top".

The screen capture hopefully shows the features.

The program needs Net Runtime Library files to run. Created in VB Net 2010.

ENjoy your programming and ceates some good color schemes,

Regards ED.

This comes in useful if you may want to hide your REAL face. HAHA, just kidding. Being "different and unique" is better than keeping up with the Jones'.

Find a graphic file and open it in the program. Determine the size using a number in the columns and rows textboxes (roughly make one twice the size of the other). Adjust the threshold ( a higher value gets rid of the details in the image, so I normally have this quite low = 0 or 1 ). The program needs the NET Runtime library to run.


Have FUN making your own designs.

Regards ED.

This program moves and clicks your mouse with keyboard keys. It needs the NET Runtime and might come in very useful if your mouse plays up. It has an adjustable mouse speed as well as changing of key assignments. The screen shot below explains what I mean.


I hope people can  make use of it.

Regards ED

The program is a work in progress. At present press PrintScreen and paste to Paint. I will add save as graphic and export to MsWord features in the next Version. This is a program I started making in the New Year break, and I was eager the put it up for people to try out.

I'm actually thinking of having a floating toolbar which can be dragged to the edges as well as adding transparency and possibly textures.

I have another version that I made that does different row and column heights, so I may add another version to this thread.

Thanks Attronarch  for giving me some feedback :)

Hi TaoPhoenix,

The game was originally made by a French dude, but because I liked it's simplicity I thought I would make some slight improvements.

When you play the game you realise that near the end things can change either way. Anyhow I thought I'd share the program with anyone who is interested in Logic type games, instead of the ultraviolent shooting games. Don't get me wrong, the shooting games are good fun, but I prefer something less violent and more logiic based.

I was thinking of improving the graphics and adding sound effects and possible having 2 teams play across the internet, but I really like the programs small size and it's simplistic gui interface. A possile use is to be played on a tablet.

Anyhow, enjoy!

Here is a program to make grids of various sizes. It is a "work in progress", so I'm still adding thins to the program.

var grid.JPG

You can change the size of the grid in pixels as well as in mm. The lines can be solid or dashed. You can change the colours of the lines and the background by either RIGHT or LEFT mouse clicking.

May come in useful for someone, who knows?



A little game for the Donation Coder community. Enjoy !

I hope everyone has a great start to the New 2013 Year.

Thankyou all who provided some feedback.

I think people without the VB 6 runtime may have a problem running on Win 7. I try to make programs that are really small, so that they can be used on small devices. My aim is to make a very simple graph program that can be run on both older and newer computers.

By the way, the above is a capture of what type of graph the program produces. The actual program has a diiferent feel to it.

Hi there guys. I have made a simple program to make Column Graphs.

Can people do a bit a Beta testing to see what could be improved?

Made for my students to investigate probability

A simulated race for up to 25 people.

You can type in names in each box and press GO

For those into electronics, a resistance colour code calculator.



Just a Birthday Program to find out what day were you born on?

Also able to find your other birthdays. Works with a html file.


Some nice plasma textures from a program I've been working on.

If you look closely you may see a face. Crazy eh?

Sorry, but I was involved in a car accident. I sustained some concusion after hitting my head on the side of the car. I have tried to remember the pass word, but have had no luck.

The car was a right-off and the laptop was smashed.


Got to watch out for those Yellow Cabs.

Ah just joking around. Look at the icon and you'll see what I mean about BEAN!

Here is a program that I thought people might like to look at when they are feeling a bit crappy (best looked at in the dark).


Happy Trippin ...

Just another screen capture to MsPaint program.

You need to click the command button to capture the screen.

I made a different version, that saves to a file when PrintScreen is pressed. It is here:
