Abscissatron
an unmatched equation solver: <screenshots>
 features standalone quadratic, cubic, and quartic equation solvers,
 solves up to 100th order realcoefficient polynomial equations,
 solves up to 50th order complexcoefficient polynomial equations,
 creates equations from roots given by the user,
 plots customized graphs of functions which display tangent lines,
 assembles tables of values and evaluates polynomials,
 calculates arclengths of functions between two given points,
 differentiates and integrates functions,
 allows the user to enter input data from the program or from files,
 allows the user to copy and save all output,
 has a clean and elegant interface.
Download Abscissatron 1.0 [564kb] ... (requires VB5 runtime files)
Don't forget to register the software for free to receive support and updates.
Elasticos (take that, Wes!)
a realtime mass/spring system simulation: <screenshot>
 completely physically realistic mass and spring simulation,
 coupled massloaded springs are dangled, hurled, and swung from the mouse,
 full customization of all physical constants and other object properties,
 graphical environment is simple to use.

Labyrinth (by James L. Dean)
a 3D maze game: <screenshot>
 randomly generates mazes of varying difficulty,
 can solve the mazes it creates,
 its maze chambers can be square or hexagonal,
 allows the user to rotate and configure the mazes.

Modometer
a mouse odometer: <screenshot>
 calculates and can display in realtime the total pointer distance travelled,
 can display distances in a variety of metric & imperial measurements,
 the user must calibrate the modometer for their particular screen,
 keeps record of the number of left & right mouse clicks made,
 counts the number of keyboard clicks,
 its counters can be reset at any time,
 has a very unobrusive interface,
 runs silently in the background while the user works,
 can be made visible with a click in the windows tray,
 the user can specify to have it run at system startup.

Primordial
a prime number sieve: <screenshot>
 searches for and displays large prime numbers,
 performs tests to determine if individual numbers are prime,
 factorizes large composite numbers.
Radix
a numerical base converter: <screenshot>
 converts real numbers to and from any bases between 2 and 36,
 converts to arabic from roman numerals and viceversa.
T^{3}
a tictactoe game: <screenshot>
 offers four distinct levels of play,
 can only be tied on top level and plays a variety of 'openings',
 the computer may play either X or O,
 two humans may battle it out, or the AI engine can play itself.
Totalizer
a mathematical expression solver: <screenshot>
 parses and solves complex mathematical expressions,
 allows 25 userdefined variables,
 includes over 80 builtin functions and physical constants.

Winfo
a window information retriever: <screenshot>
 works by the user dragging or moving the cursor over a window area,
 displays information on the window's metrics and identification,
 zooms into the area around the users cursor,
 can display a border around the window being investigated.
