SHED (Shared Editor) is a console editor that enables multiple users to view and edit documents. Unlike most collaborative software, SHED does not limit editing to a single user at a time. Instead, a centralized server manages the locking of individual lines on an as-needed basis. Additionally, users are free to navigate the document independently of the other users. SHED is currently in a pre-release state, but design ideas for Version 2 are being mapped out. You can obtain the latest version of SHED here.

This program was a semester-long project created for Dr. Ian Parberry's game programming course at UNT.

As an exercise in screen manipulation using ncurses, a friend of mine created a program that randomly places digits until the screen is virtually filled. Using this program as inspiration and a base, I modified the code to use a variety of ASCII characters placed and timed so as to appear to fall in a style similar to what is seen in the Matrix films.

Compile and run this program on a Unix/Linux machine.

"Labyrinth" a.k.a. "The Search for the Evil Cook-E Monster" was a group project that was created as part of Dr. Armin Mikler's networking course. This game allows up to eight people to play simultaneously over a network, and it requires the cooperation of the players to achieve success in navigating the maze, locating the treasures, and eventually conquering the "Evil Cook-E Monster". The game runs in Linux and uses ncurses to display the on the console.
