I recently been developed a small app for my 3 year old daughter. The idea being that when she sits at the computer she cannot inadvertantly change anything. When she hits a key on the keyboard the number or letter will popup on the screen and a voice will say what it is. With the mouse she can move the letter around the screen. With the mouse buttons she can change the colour, and with the mouse wheel she can change the size.
A screen shot of the app can be found here (40.2 KB)
The source code with a release exe and audio files can be found here (4,092.7) KB
If you do try it out. Remember that the keystrokes <Esc><a><d><a> will stop it.
I am thinking of writing an article on it and some of the things I did to create it. If I do write an article the code will definitely have to be cleaned up first. Do you guys think it is worthy of an article here on CP, especially seeing how it is not geared towards developers.
What I need from you guys and/or gals is people who are willing to provide translations and audio files for other languages. I would really love to get this working in French, Spanish, German, and Dutch. The more the better.
If you are interested in helping have a look in the "release/audio/1033" folder and find the file named "Sounds.xml". This file contains instructions (as comments), All the GUI texts that would need to be translated, and the linkages between the characters and audio files.
For every language translated I would need new audio files and an updated Sounds.xml file.
I could also stand to have new audio files for the 2057 English UK folder.

hi, have been searching around for quite a while on this but have been having trouble locating an explanation.
i've read all over that unit tests need to be runnable independently from other code. this makes sense to me but my question is what to do with re-usable code?
i have 4 tests:
CreateUserTest : i create a user object in the db DeleteUserTest: here, i want to create a user, then delete that user. so i re-use the code in the first test. CreateGroupTest: Creates a group in the db AddUserToGroupTest: this is another reusability example. here, i run the "CreateGroupTest", "CreateUserTest","AddUserToGroupTest"
i can run each test individually and in any order. (which is good)
is something wrong with this type of reusability?
i have everything as seperate tests in one test fixture with one setup and one teardown.
MapWindow Open Source GIS is a .NET application on top of an ActiceX control.
The ActiveX control: MapWinGIS (mapwingis.codeplex.com[^]) has been improved a lot the last years but the .NET Desktop application (MapWindow v4) has not.
Because parts of MapWindow v4 has been written 7-10 years ago we've decided to start over with the desktop version.
This version we call MapWindow v5.
We are now at the start of this project and we've made a prototype based on a new architecture.
We are now looking for software architects that want to join this project and help us set it up correctly.
We also need people with a lot of unit tests experience, because that is lacking in our community.
And of course we need C# developers that will assist us in building the application.
Hey guys. We've written a java based messaging program, and we'd like to have someone assist us in porting it to Android. We've tried with one developer, and he wasn't quite as great as he said he was, and we never got it working. We've got information about the program on our indiegogo page HERE. Currently, we're too busy to work on both the PC version and the Android version at the same time, as it would hinder our progress. Anyone interested, please let me know, either on here, or (faster) on Skype: methaneboy. Thanks and looking forward to finding someone to work with
I'm looking for .net devs that are free and would like to work on some fun projects.
Im currently working on news,update and login system for applications as library so if anyone is interested joining please let me know or contact me on skype for more informations. My skype name is trle94akaonlykl
This project has pretty high goals, maybe some of which will not even be reachable, but i've been working on it for over two years already so i'm not really into letting it go down the drain without a fight So having a partner or two would probably make quite a bit of a difference.
1) this invitation is only for the most daring: advanced C++ skills, socket programming, P2P network design, etc, and looooooots of time and dedication are required to make any progress on this beast, so please only contact me if you really have what it takes (time and the necessary skills) to get involved in this crazy venture.
2) should you be interested in participating in this project, i will have to ask for some open source coding proofs from you (or, alternatively, we'd need to have a [long] chat during which we'll need to asses together how well you'd be able to deal with the various challenges specific to this project); the thing is that this project is so complex, and my time so limited, that i cannot afford to spend time with double-checking every line of code that a potential partner will write, so i need to have some understanding of the skill set and programming experience of whoever will join
for any further inquiries, please only use the P2P OS project's "Contact" page (i.e. i will not elaborate on any project details on this website, that's what the project's blog is for)
I'm looking for a partner in developing a programming language. The idea is a native general purpose language that is simple, but also fast enough for e.g. 3D games and doesn't limit low level programming. I develop in C#, it's a really powerful language, but unfortunately it's not good for these.
This thing has existed as an IRC bot for several months now (hence the name), and now it has a website. I've tested it, but I'm probably the worst person for that job - I know exactly how it works so I'm probably (subconsciously) avoiding anything that would break it. (well, I have found some problems..)
Comments about the website are also welcome, but I'm mainly looking for bugs in the engine.
It only deals with 32bit integers, so "3 / 2 = 1" is not a bug.
Hey, Sorry for the late reply. Here's my feedback.
The design is alright. It's not terribly bad, but it could be better. If you want some inspiration, you could check out Bootstrap[^] or Foundation[^] for free CSS frameworks or Theme Forest[^] for paid premium templates.
The images on the front page are squished. Try to size those with a standard ratio. The design could use more color. Again, check out the links above. The blue colors on the text in the front page listing make me think they are links, but they aren't. Blue text usually means links, so if you don't want those to be links then I would change the color.
The listing page is lacking in a lot. Again, I have to point back to those links above. It almost seems like you wrote the CSS on your own, from scratch. I admire that, but I would use a little help from a framework or a template. The "Return to Listing" button doesn't work. It doesn't take me anywhere. You might want to look at your code. The click to zoom link links to the same small image. I would try to get a bigger image to show in the zoom section instead of the same small image. That way the customer can get a better look at what they are considering purchasing.
When I go to search for a gun, it gets really complicated. Unless I know the exact gun (make, model, etc.) that I am looking for, I get pretty lost in the searching. Maybe create a simple search and an advanced search.
I'm not so sure what the point of the links page is. Is it a blog? Or like an RSS that will update with new links? Or is it a static page that you will update with links when you feel like it? It might be more simple to create a wrapper for another blog platform like Tumblr or something.
The Terms and Conditions and Privacy links are generally in the footer (which is also missing).
You could add a Captcha box to the contact form to deter spammers. I personally hate spammers and try my best to deter them as much as I can.
If you are looking for some good footer content, look no further than your About page. The bottom part of that page would make a great footer for the website. Otherwise, you could do a generic Copyright and link to the bottom part of the website. But you should have a footer.
That's what I have right now for you. I did not create an account and log in. If you want my feedback for that part of your website, I would rather you create an account for me and send me the credentials. Also, feel free to message me whenever if you have any more questions. I am always willing to help you out.
