I like computer programming as a hobby and here are some of the programs I have made:

Windows


Name: Thing
Description: Simple game
Graphics: ASCII characters
Notes:
It took me about 3 months to do(I haven't had much practise in menu driven stuff) but now it is finished. I don't know how to describe it, I guess arcade is the closest but it isn't really arcade. The thing that had the most trouble with is the installation. Never again will I use errors to mark an event-especially not numerous ones. Second up is the timing thing; this made sure that it went at the same speed on all computers-though at under 33Mhz it doesn't work well. I wrote the program in BASIC and then compiled it in Visual Basic for DOS. I haven't quite got the hang of C++ yet. Sorry all you Mac-lovers, Microsoft loves its monopolies so Thing should only work on Windows. When JDK and the Run-time system start behaving, I will write platform-indpendant Java!

Name: HTML Debugging Aid
Description: er, HTML Debugging Aid
Graphics: ASCII characters
Notes:
This does simple checks on HTML files. As most HTML errors are down to simple problems, this can be more useful than it seems. One important thing though: it uses DOS standard filenames. If you are using 3.x, great! If you are using 95, 98 or 2000, check with filemanager first(c:\windows\winfile.exe). I will convert the Debugging Aid to Javascript soon so Mac lovers can love it too.

Name: Bounce
Description: Weird, bouncy game
Graphics: ASCII characters
Notes:
My programming skills have really improved, it took me three days to make this and it is better quality than Thing! This game I am fond of. It isn't really complicated but it is just the time it took me to make yet its graphics are better than Thing's. I added more extra bits just for fun that took me some time like the way the letters B, O, U, N, C and E bounce at the start(oh, the calculations!)and the smiley face that bounces around to distract you while you learn the point of it all.

Name: Pet
Description: a sort of weird pet that sits on your desktop I guess
Graphics: GUI because it runs alongside Windows
Notes:
This is fairly simple and I'm already writing PetII-much more interactive. If your wondering what kind of pet it is then pay attention: Pet is a blue ball with two eyes and a big moustache, when Pet is sad, his moustache droops. You can(and should because he dies otherwise)feed and play with him though this will be more interactive and fun in PetII.
Pet comes zipped because of all the images of his moustache and whatnot. If you haven't got Winzip or another archiving tool, go here.
