Mastermind - The Computer Game

Feeling bored? Or perhaps looking for something to freshen up the mind? Then download this small utility game which is based on a popular logic game called MasterMind. The gameplay is simple. You have to deduct the hidden sequence of colors chosen by the computer by inputing four colors of your choice. If any of the colors in your sequence matches the corresponding color in computer's chosen sequence, then you get a green answer. If, however, the color is misplaced in the sequence, then you get a red answer. Continue the steps to finally deduct the correct sequence. You have 10 guesses only.
To input colors, either click the color boxes at the bottom or press the first letter of the color name on keyboard. To change levels, press F1, F2 or F3.
The game features automatic saving of score (wins & losses) and 3 difficulty levels.
The only difference from the physical game is that colors can be repeated in the sequence, whereas in the physical game, each color could only be used once.
Enjoy playing!

Multipurpose Data Calculator

Since the arrival of DSL in the home, one thing that was frequently bothersome was the process of estimating the total time it will take to download a file of certain size, given a constant download speed. Even more so, partly because of extensive use bandwidth management, calculating the speed that should be allocated to download a file of a specified size in a set time duration was necessary.Bored by the repeated calculations, the need for some software emerged that would do the job. One or two softwares already made do calculate time, but not the other options.
Therefore, it was time to brush up the programming skills and create such a software. The result is a calculator, which is named MpDataCalc (Multipurpose Data Calculator), that can calculate speed, time and data size – given any two of the variables.
It will be of benefit to others as well, so here it is.

1) Calculates speed of data transfer, given data size and time
2) Calculates volume or size of data that will be transferred given a specific speed and time duration.
3) Calculates time required to download/upload a file of given size at a specified transfer speed.

MpDataCalc - Utility to calculate various Data Transfer variables.
