    I write interfaces with security products to ease administration and penetration analysis tools.

    No I do not sell them. They are in-house only and for personal use.

    I do many applications ranging from internet apps to screensavers. Most of my applications are very complex so it takes me quite a while to finish them. I also do some work in gaming... and internet gaming.

    Yes, I do make money... when things get done.

    I write applications that downloads data from the company's computer, runs the data through some analysis programs, creates customized Excel spreadsheets with the data, then e-mails the Excel spreadsheets to various department managers at locations throughout the United States. These programs automatically run nightly.
    I make money for this via my paycheck.

    ps. What is cintel?

    I write Security related software and whatever else the community has a need for.

    My latest project involves fingerprint verification and tags to monitor access and movement of employees.

    We sell these to large coorporations, if we can get them interested. I also recently started with Internet developement.

    I do whatever comes in to my mind. I also use DJGPP for game programming (VB is too slow for me). Now I'm making editor for Settlers II (2). I've many other projects too, I do them when I got inspired.

    What's DJGPP?

    I did programming fo my A-Level Computing, so I didn't make any money. Now I want to learn more, so I'm not doing anything commercially. I just make stuff that I feel like making. Like last night I made a noughts and crosses game (tic tac toe?), 'cause I was bored and there was nothing on TV, and I spend far too much time on the internet already.

    Yeah, so what's DJGPP anyway?

    Anything I feel like (or at least anything I can)!!

    I've made a few games, plenty of screensavers (that's a point has anybody figured out an easy way to fill in the Preview window of the Screen Saver tab of the Display Properties Control Panel? - the demos I've seen look far too involved.)

    Most of my programs are for personal learning/scaring off boredom use, although I do make a few for friends. Recently I've been making a Telnet server and trying to wrap my head around databases (I think I'm a lost cause there - does anybody know of a good DB book that will take me right from Access basics to complex Access & VB stuff (but easy to swallow)?)

    For more info on me, visit my web site...

    Hi
    This is my first "real" app,and my first programmingjob. Im developing the user-interface for an Opera in Sweden, to control the opening/Closing of the hatches(? the small "doors") in the floor.
    It is hard to follow the specs from the user and keep the program simple and I have learned the value of using comments in my code.

    Every program can be reduced to one instruction which doesn't work.

    I make anythng that comes to mind. Internet chat clients and server's ,activeX controls, screensavers, answering machines, a few games, db programs.....

    and Visual Basic from scratch takes you from the start of a db app with Acces to the end and has some nice class files with it.
