Here are some things that I wrote in Visual Basic just for
fun. Feel free to download and distribute anything on this page.
The programs have been tested fairly extensively...but use
them at your own risk. All programs should run fine under Windows
95/98/2000/ME & NT (sorry Win3.1 and Mac users). Just download and run the setup program for
the program you are interested in and an icon will be installed for you.
1. Lake Fork
I love fishing at Lake Fork, TX so much that I had
to write a simple Lake Fork fishing game to keep my lust for fishing
satisfied while I'm not on the lake. It's not too fancy,
but kinda fun. You will be competing in a fishing tourney
on Lake Fork against top pros like Rick Clunn and Roland Martin. Good Luck!
This is a little program that tests your computer's speed
on several items (graphics, reading/writing to disk and calculating). After
the test is through it gives a comparison of the results with a couple
of my computers. If you have two computers, it's sometimes
useful to see how they differ from one another.
Ever thought of making a big purchase and wished you could
play with the numbers to see how much you need to put down to have a
reasonable monthly payment? This program lets you adjust
the amount of the loan, the percentage rate and the number of months to pay
out the loan in order to arrive at a desired monthly payment.
If you don't want to download the above program, you can calculate monthly
loan payments on-line via the below form.
5. The Montiac Challenge
Here's a program that asks you 30 questions about acoustic guitar genius,
Monte Montgomery, and the Monte eGroups list. It was written in
Visual Basic so getting it to play .MP3 clips was a bit of a challenge. I
know it doesn't contain any viruses, but I'm not 100% sure it will work on
everyone's computer/sound card. But so far I haven't heard of
any problems. The setup file is pretty big so it might take
awhile to download (12 minutes on a 28.8 connection). Sorry!
