Win Nanny, parental control software
Win Nanny is a parental control software launched automatically with starting of a computer and takes control of the access.
Finished the arguments, it allows you the parent to determine, it allows YOU the parent to determine when the children are on the computer, which child can access the computer in the designated time slot.
Also, if a child wants to start up the computer outside of his allowed time space, he or she will not be able to.
When they arrive at the end of their allowed time period, the software politely lets them know that they have time to finish what they started, but they will always know in advance the end is near.
That’s putting the end to the constant negotiation sessions that occur when YOU try to limit THEIR time!

Most traffic signs in the United Kingdom are designed using a system written entirely in PB/Win. SignPlot replaces expensive CAD tools to automate the complicated sign layout and spacing rules required by the UK Traffic Signs Regulations. In addition to producing drawings and various formats of export file, it is used to help manufacture signs. SignPlot has been supplied to many hundreds of different organizations and is run on well over 1000 computers throughout the British Isles. A version for Greece is also available. P.O.A. Free evaluation CD available.
Software for designing traffic sign supports and foundations to European standard EN 12899:2007. It takes account of the appropriate wind load (which is determined by the software for locations in UK and Ireland) and contains the necessary data for most steel and proprietary supports used in Europe. It checks the requirements for passive safety (crash friendliness) to EN 12767 and will determine the spacing of sign face stiffeners for a wide range of substrate materials.
Professional version: £500 or €650. Designer version: Free to relevant companies and local authorities in Europe.

Computerized Radiation Scanners
Computerized Radiation Scanners (CRS) manufactures a radiation beam scanner that measures the characteristics of high energy therapy treatment devices used for treating cancer. Measurements are made in either a water phantom or on film. The scanner itself is mechanical device that moves a sensor probe in 1, 2 or 3 axis. If used in water, the probe is either an ionization chamber or a diode capable of detecting radiation. Film is scanned using a small laser as light source and a diode detector. The mechanical parts uses motors to move the sensor. The motors are driven from electronics controlled by a PC, programmed using PowerBasic Console Compiler. The output from the sensors are amplified and converted to digital data used as input to the PC and PB/CC. The transmission for both output and input uses UDP/IP working at 100MB/sec. An embedded Rabbit 3200 computer is used as an interface in the electronics unit.

The application displays and allows the user to “surf” car data collected via a vehicle’s OBDii diagnostic port. The data includes engine RPM, engine temperature, air/fuel mixture and many more. Data is collected on a very small device with on-board data storage, so no connection to a computer is required. The device can collect and store 2 hours of data before requiring a data download. The main application was written in VB.net, but the more time-sensitive operations that include communication with USB hardware and encryption routines were all done in a PowerBASIC DLL (PB/Win 8).
The software is completely FREE and the hardware is $150.

TFS stands for Thermal Fluid Simulator. TFS is a general purpose CFD and CHT solver, our flagship product at TITAN Algorithms. TFS is a unique tool in the way that is couples with TAS and Sinda based solvers by virtue of the flow conductor export feature. TFS is a graphical modeller and operates much like a wind tunnel with its threaded solver method. TFS includes the Mesh2D Meshing module.
Mesh3D is a general purpose volume hex meshing tool. Mesh3D reads a generic ASCII or Binary STL file as the geometry basis, then performs edge detection and flood fill to create the volume mesh. Create a 500,000 element mesh in just 5 seconds, animate the process and export the neutral file in multiple formats.
PMM stands for Paint Method Mesher. PMM (Mesh2D) is a general purpose 2D hex meshing tool. The mesh is built by first reading a standard bitmap and processing the pixel content to generate a mesh. The user enjoys instant mesh design feedback. The mesh file is then exported in several neutral file export formats.
GCG stands for Generalized Conjugate Gradient solver. The GCG solver is cut in both EXE and DLL formats and is used to solver nonlinear thermal and strain matrix equations with extreme speed. The GCG solver is nominally x60 faster than today's standard SOR thermal solvers. The GCG code is currently compiled as a DLL (with graphical interface) and enjoys wide success in Harvard Thermal's TAS and PTD product lines.
OV3D stands for Object Viewer 3D. OV3D is a general purpose graphical engine which has a set of exported function calls that allows the user to set the object into memory, set color and dialog parameters. Once the object reside in OV3D, the graphics engine does the rest. The user can performed dynamic rotation, translation,zoom, mouse clipping, cropping, shading and more. OV3D is currently cut as a DLL.
PMA stands for Poor Man's Animator and is a general purpose dialog animation tool. With PMA, all that you do is select a dialog and timed variations in the dialog, whether it is a plot or text, are captured and then converted to a standard AVI media file. PMA was recently upgraded to include image cropping so you can animate select areas in a dialog.
Rhea Codekey a general utility software key utility which is used to issue and control electronic licensing for the Hyperion and Rhea modules. The CodeKey configures itself when it is shelled and run from the primary software module. When this occurs, the module name (example TFS) and version number are automatically loaded into the CodeKey.

Multilayer Wall Program
Useful for engineers and scientists analyzing radomes or other electromagnetic windows which protect an antenna from the external environment, this program computes transmission coefficient and insertion phase delay (IPD) versus frequency, angle of incidence relative to the surface normal, and polarization. The inputs to the program include the number of layers, thickness and the electrical parameters of each layer. The results are optionally plotted as transmission loss versus frequency where angle of incidence is taken as a parameter, or IPD versus angle of incidence (0 to 90 degrees) at a fixed frequency. A version of the code in a powerful optimization loop is available which allows transparency optimization at up to three simultaneous frequency bands. MWP $495 or MWP-OPTIMIZER $995
Zen Monte Carlo Simulator
The Zen Monte Carlo Simulator is a professional software product for chance evaluation, risk analysis and validation of mechanical trading systems. Technically, it is a lean and very fast Win32 implementation of the well-known Monte Carlo Simulation method. German and English versions are available, as well as an additional Windows DLL component. The two substantial functions are system simulation and data simulation. In the context of the system simulation, available systematical test results are used by a Monte Carlo Simulation stress test. Thus, qualitatively more valuable results concerning the profits, but in particular also concerning expecting account drawdowns are achieved, as this would be possible with conventional linear systematical tests. The data simulation makes it possible to generate synthetic, artificial data, which can be used again for additional alternative systematical tests and the data simulation thus delivers a valuable contribution for validating mechanical trading systems.

Personal File Password Security Program
Secures any personal file by encryption with a password.
The secured file information can not be viewed or used by an application until it is
unsecured with the password.
If the root filename of the secured file is changed, the password may not work to
unsecure a file without a rename back to the root filename which provides additional
Passwords can contain spaces so they can be phrases like "Now is the time to go fishing"
USB Printer DOS Command Utility Program
Allows printing of DOS command screen output on a W32 USB printer.
USB Printer Configuration Program
Issues PCL commands to set the character set, line spacing, character size, and page
orientation on a W32 USB or PARALLEL connected printer so a file can be printed with a
program bypassing the W32 printer drivers.

Curve Fitting Programs
Calculate equations for curves obtained by plotting a graph of the values of an observed
dependent variable Y for known values of the independent variable X. i.e. Y = F(X)
All curve equations created have the general form
Y = A0 + A1(X) + A2(X2) for X <= XJ
Y = B0 + B1(X) + B2(X2) for X >= XJ
where XJ is the value of X where the 2 curve sections join together.
