NetworkLens is designed to be a simple-to-use Web-based application for Network Operation Center (NOC) personnel to monitor, capture, and document problems that are reported within the network being managed. It has a central pool of event notifications with a flexible architecture that allows for several different sources of alerting information. Similar to the input mechanism, output mechanisms (reporting agents) can monitor the central pool of event notifications and email alerts to interested parties. This saves the NOC personnel from having to continuously monitor systems; rather, they can simply respond to email alerts.
Quarters is a strategy game for two players. Although its rules are relatively simple, it still offers some of the same opportunities for skill as in chess. This program was originally conceived in the summer of 1986 during a study of the mini-max algorithm for chess playing computers, and was thus designed to offer some of the same type of strategies. The game was originally written in BASIC, then ported to Turbo Pascal, then to C, and finally to Java. The Java version is not necessarily object oriented, since it is a crude port from the C version.
