EXE’s From My Past

When I
used to be in class VIII or so, we had Visual Basic in our Computer Practical
syllabus. I eventually took a strong liking to it and even brought home
monster-size books on VB. During this time, I created a number of applications
on VB. The best of them, a fully customizable multi-step calculator, was lost
in a disk crash. However, today I opened an old backup CD to look for WinRAR
Archiver and stumbled upon a few such applications I had stored away on the CD.
It was all very nostalgic.

The first is a puzzle game I had created, the type where you have
to move tiles around a grid to form a picture, only I used numbers, so that
there are many formations you can try to make. This is the link to that
application:

The second is the first version of the calculator. The history
behind it is that we already had a calculator on our syllabus, a really stupid
one whose code we simply had to copy from our textbook. It could do just the
four primary functions, and without a great deal of accuracy (it used only a
few decimal points). I improved upon it a little, and brought out my version,
which you can download here:

Then I worked a hell lot
more on it, and produced something that no man has ever set his mortal eyes on,
but, as I said, it’s lost now.

I remember I cried the night it happened.

1Life.
