Hmmm....

Recommended Posts

Anyone have and needs/wants for a program? Something kinda small, because I like to program (in java), but I dont have the motivation to program for a few months on one project :P . And well im out of idea for myself, my latest project was a File Transfer program because i found AIM to be too slow :P

So anyone have any ideas? I could use a nice learning experience.

I measure something that shows 138 inches

I need it to show as 11ft.-6in.

I also made an option (in File menu) that will automatically copy the results to your clipboard.

You will need at least Java 1.4 to run it, you should have it. Tell me what you think, and/or if you would like to see something more.

WOW! Fubz--I didn't download it (Java is in the coffeepot, not sure about my computer) but that sounds AMAZING! Sure could have used that during my flooring salesrep days!....Great idea, Bearskin, Great invention, Fubz! Get a patent on that one quick!

Where's your donut avatar? I miss him....

Idea: I needed this and couldn't find a good one (without paying mega-bucks for an entire training program). I was training to be a Blackjack dealer and you have to know the payouts. Let's say you bet $1, the payout for BJ would be one-and-a-half times that, $1.50. Easy enough.

But you have to "know" the payout for ANY amount bet. $37.50? $376.00? $74.50?

So a sort of calculator that would display a random bet (between, say, $5 and $2000, the minimum and maximum bets usually allowed, in $0.50 increments). You type in the payout (to be correct it would have to be one-and-a-half times the bet displayed) and the program would display either "Correct" and advance to the next random bet, or "Wrong" and you try again.

Since all you're doing it typing a number and hitting enter you'd just use the number keypad, and it could go pretty fast (as long as you're getting the right payout).

Enhancements? Maybe being able to choose the range for the bets (lower than $5, higher than $2000), or changing the increments (quarters or dollars instead of fifty cent increments). Possibly scoring, but that's not really the point, which is; practice, practice practice.

Well JDoors, here ya go!

bjtrainer.png

Generates random number between lower - upperbounds specified, in increments

type in answer, W/O $, and if its say $2, you can type 2, or 2.0, or 2.00

Same as if the answer is $2.50, you can type 2.5, or 2.50, whatever floats your boat.

Options to change lower/upper/increment.

And tells you how many you got right/wrong each session.

And tells you the right answer when you get it wrong.

Comments/suggestions/criticism welcome. (just don't be too mean :P)

Hope this is what you wanted.

Holy cow! Just what I needed!

And it's small man, how'd you do that?

I did have to update my Java, but that's something I should'a been keeping up on anyway so you did me a favor there.

Playing with it reminds me why I hate learning -- My brain hurts. :D

My friend and i were talking about that... we were like wow, you really gotta know this? This is rediculous, we kept trying and were off by a lot, we figured that most people will bet something easy like 2k, or 300 to make it easy.

Yeah, a dealer should be able to just pay out without thinking. And if you pay someone something-or-other and 50 cents, they might leave that there for the next hand so you wind up with all kinds of random amounts.

Just so's you know, the program I found online that included that little 'calculator' (plus a ton of other stuff), went for over three hundred dollars. I didn't happen to need the other stuff (like where to place cards, how to handle insurance & other bets, etc.), just the calculator, so I wasn't gonna pay three hundred bucks for it. Plus that program was poorly designed & was originally in BASIC or something similar so it looked like crap.

Umm, you're not gonna hit me up for three hundred bucks now, are you? :blink:

You are amazing fubz. I D/L your converter, which incidently, made me update Java. It takes so long on dial-up that I just simply ignore it until I'm forced to do so. Same goes for Acrobat reader.

I love gadgets. :lol: Thanks :thumbsup:
