Message Notifier for Trillian:What is it you ask? Message Notifier uses your keyboard lights (and/or internal computer speaker) to notify you when you receive an IM message in Trillian. It has lots of options. See the Message Notifier page for details.
Very Basic Java Shooter GameI decided to enhance my Java skills, so I created a basic game with JDK 7. There are game engines out there that would be able to do the same in a smaller amount of time, but this wasn't about building a game, it was about working with Java. So in a way, this should be called a lesson or an "experiment" more than a game. The only 3rd party library used is a SPI (Service Provider Interface) for MP3 decoding. The SPI basically drops right into the standard Java Sound system, so with only a handful of lines of code I was able to use the same code I had been previously using with WAV sound files. (Of course with the benefit of a smaller package/JAR size.)
If you just want to play: Download Runnable JAR file. You will need the Java JRE installed to run this. If you have errors, make sure you are running the latest edition. (I used 7.)
For Developers: Download Source files in zip format. You will need the Java JDK installed to run this. If you have errors, make sure you are running the latest edition. (I used 7.) Finally you will need the MP3 SPI. I used 1.9.5. In the MP3 SPI file you will find 3 libraries you will need to link in: mp3spi1.9.5.jar, jl1.0.1.jar, and tritonus_share.jar. (Names may have changed slightly.) I also recommend Eclipse to edit with.
eHarmony Enhance userscriptI created the eHarmony Enhance userscript to address some shortcomings of the eHarmony website.
eHarmony Enhance is available at userscripts.org. It can be used in Firefox with Greasemonkey or in Chrome by adding it as an extension. (It can probably be used in other browsers that support userscripts as well.) Once added it will automatically be loaded on the pages it is needed.
