Totally useless gizmodos just for fun (old pieces of code finally bundled into one package).
General Notes ----------------
The download package ("GADGETS.zip") contains this document and three programs ("REMINGTON.exe", "WAZZDOG.exe" and "FANTASY.exe"). No installation is needed, just unzip these files to your hard disk.
If you want to uninstall any of these GADGETS, just delete the corresponding file.
REMINGTON V1.0 --------------------
REMINGTON turns your silent keyboard into a classic noisy typewriter so that everyone at The Office can hear that you are working REALLY hard :-)
There's no window, only a tray icon (Smiley). You can mute the sounds by left-clicking the tray icon and Exit by right-clicking the icon.
WAZZDOG V1.0 --------------------
WAZZDOG is a cute little Doggie always trying to escape from the downright corner of the screen. Life goes on by hunting cats on the screen until it's time to take a nap...
There's no main window, only a tray icon (doghouse), dog itself and the occasional cats for hunting. You can call the dog back home (if not sleeping) by left-clicking the tray icon and exit the program by right-clicking the icon.
You can start multiple WAZZDOG instances repeatedly in order to get your screen full of action --- your CPU is the limit :-)
Credits also to J Planeta (for sounds etc).
FANTASY V0.2 Oops, this one is bulky (code is not optimized for size and it contains several embedded audio clips). FANTASY is an old study how to simulate 3D graphics using primitive 2D functions (not state-of-the-art in today's standards)...
FANTASY takes you into a space, so let's have some warp drive and explore the final Frontier on the other side of the wormhole :-)
Exit by right-clicking the screen (or using the ESC key).
