Ebscer Batch Updater

I present to you the Ebscer Batch Updater (EBU), a tool which will automatically update a whole collection of files for you at once. You simply select the files that you wish to update, enter the text you want replaced, enter the new text that you want in it’s place, and all of the files are automatically updated in one go.

Unlike with Su there are not likely to be any future versions as the full functionality is already here. If however a future version is created, it will show up here. Version 3.0 of Su should be released soon…

Su (version 2.0)

Version 2.0 of my Sudoku solver is now complete and available for download.

Version 2 adds a variety of features, from the ability to save and load sudoku puzzles, better handling of whitespace, better handling of window sizes, use of keyboard shortcuts, a check for contradictions in input, and the use of graphical icons within the file. Overall usability has been greatly improved.

A few ideas are still around for a version 3, such as the ability to “unsolve” and to keep track of if the current version has been saved or not. However, with less time on my hands it will probably be awhile before the next version is released.

Su (version 1.5)

The next version of the SuDoKu solver that I created is now finalized.

Download Su (v1.5)

Version 1.5 has further functionality over version 1.0 in that the solver is better and more advanced, the program doesn’t take as long to resolve partial solutions, and tabbing through the blanks now follows a logical order. It is still a windows only app, because it’s based on the .net framework.

A start on version 2.0 is being begun. Version 2.0 is to feature a save/load option, and to further enhance the solving ability. Other features that version 2.0 may or may not support are keyboard shortcuts and the option to solve step by step. It will show up here when it’s available.
