Watcher

Watcher is a basic interceptor against parasite software: adware, spyware, virusses, and also regular applications misusing system resources.

Watcher checks sensitive areas of Windows system (registry, system directories, etc.) to help users fight against the slow transformation of any Windows machine into a mess. It runs on Windows NT-2000-XP (Unicode) and Windows 98 (MBCS). It is dynamically localizable (any end-user can create a localized version without access to the source code). Current version (and installer) supports English and French.

Documentation and download available here.

SmoothAgent

SmoothAgent is a desktop assistant that allows a group of users to receive dedicated broadcasted information.

It uses alpha blending technics to display neat graphics with transparency effects. New information can be distributed by any http server (website). The way the agent looks is customizable by creating new "skins" that can be downloaded for the server (4 skins are currently available; creating a new skin only requires to provide a few GIF files and an XML description). The agent is dynamically localizable (any end-user can create a localized version without access to the source code). Current version (and installer) supports English and Japanese.

TimeSlicer

TimeSlicer is a tool to measure the time spent by a computer user on his different tasks.

User activity (and inactivity) is automatically detected (by tracking keyboard and mouse events at system level). TimeSlicer was written in C++ for Windows. A port to Linux is planned.

More details and a download will be available later on...

Tlib

Tlib is a personal C++ source code library I am using and developing as I work on my different projects.

A part of Tlib is usable under both Windows and Linux, another part provides helpers specific to Windows. Tlib is used notably in Watcher, SmoothAgent and TimeSlicer (see above). Current source code size is about 650KB.
