Word Warrior April 2006
An alternative client for the Internet Scrabble Club.
In the mid 2000s, I often played Scrabble on the Internet Scrabble Club, which was not an official Scrabble website. Thousands of people played online there, but the client was horrible and buggy. I took it upon myself to write my own client, which involved reverse engineering the protocol to communicate with the server. I discovered many security issues (cheating vectors) while doing this. But I just wanted a nice client for playing Scrabble online. I pretty much finished the client, and it worked quite nicely, but it never went much further than that and who knows if it still works.
Pac-Man January 2005
Simple Pac-Man clone written in Java.
I remember that I had a cold when I started writing this Pac-Man clone. One cool aspect of it was that levels were defined in ASCII, with different symbols representing walls, dots, pills, etc. I used SWT for the GUI. Unfortunately, I never got around to implementing the fruits that would appear in the real game.
