Commodore 64 - Build V1.4 (05/23/21)

Who doesn't love the Commodore 64?

My take on Jamie Zawinski's excellent Apple2 saver from XScreenSaver. Mine is both a screensaver and a desktop toy that displays a Commodore 64 with someone using it. Watch as they get directories, format disks, write programs, load applications, draw graphics, change colors, and do more than 30 different activities.

I use a 4k monitor so I like to have the desktop toy running in the corner doing Commodore 64 activities. Brings back good memories.

I'm rewriting the engine for my 2.0 release and including a dozen or so new activities.

Dungeons V1.0 (06/08/21)

The Biggest RPG Game Ever!

Welcome brave adventurer! How much gold can you collect while you explore a four million room dungeon filled with dangerous creatures? Get the gold, use the potions, and stay alive as long as you can!
Your Adventure Awaits!

When I was teaching computer science at different universities, I found that a majority of students were learning to program because they wanted to write video games. It was difficult to interest them in the more boring parts of software development even though many of these concepts overlap and are useful regardless of what software you are developing.

Dungeons was written to help my students apply different concepts while learning procedural programming in a creative and fun project. It remains the most popular class I have taught and many students have commented on how it helped them better understand concepts in a project they could relate to.

ASMR MBox - Build 1.3 (05/23/21)

Who doesn't love ASMR?

I wrote this about ten years ago before YouTube had a selection of ASMR and ambient audio selections. MBox allows you to select up to ten different mp3 files and then choose how loud and how often each is played. This allows you to build your own ASMR or white noise selections.

I have included a ‘Thunderstorm at Night’ example using public domain mp3 files. The rain, thunder, crickets, owls, and wind are all separately controlled by you so you can customize what you want to hear and when you want to hear them.

I find Mbox very helpful when I want more than white noise in the background but not music that might distract me while I am working.

Requirements: .NET 4.8

Port Check - Build 1.1 (05/23/21)

Port Check was written for a company that needed to check to see if a certain port was either open or be opened by something. I don't remember the situation but this will check a port at regular intervals and then send a notice via email.
