Power Hour v0.4 source is now available

I finally got around to uploading the source code to my Power Hour program. I hadn’t looked at it in about a year and just recently have been getting comments and emails about it.

It looks like I may need to start it back up and see if I can finish it since I stopped shortly after getting most fo the features working last year.

It would also be nice to go in a clean up the code and stabilize it a little more with some error checking and such. If anyone is interested in fixing and patching the errors with me feel free. My contact information can be found on the “About” page (linked to above).

I also took some time recently to convert the code from the original Visual Basic 2005 format to the newer Visual Basic 2008 format just to keep up with the times. If you don’t have Visual Basic 2008, you can download it for free and get a free registration code from Microsoft. I use the Express Editions and they offer everything I would need.

The Visual Basic 2005 code is available for v0.4, so if you already have that then you can just start contributing code from that and I can quickly convert and make it fit into the Visual Basic 2008 code.

I’m working towards Power Hour v0.5 and I plan on publishing it after the application becomes very stable and all currently pending “tickets” are resolved. If you want your name added to the credits just send in some form of a patch or fix and I’ll add your credits to the program!

Until then just enjoy the program and show your friends. 😉

Power Hour!

Here is a new app that I’ve been coding in Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition. Pretty much just a party app that DJ’s for you. Check it out and enjoy.
