This project/combine solves the classic IQ Testing Peg Game. Of course, what my code does, is show that your IQ doesn’t need to be that high to solve the darned puzzle. The method is simple. It uses a recursive algorithm to simply try out ALL, and i mean ALL, of the possibilities. Realizing that the dumb 15 peg puzzle is symmetrical and so forth could’ve saved a lot of possibilities with a Board comparison of some sort. But I figured that 15 pegs = 13 moves or something, with a max of 4 possible moves per empty peg. At most, even with mathematical combinations, the answer should be found quite quickly by my laptop of 1.6 Ghz Intel Mobile. So in the end, it did work out, quite quickly, probably because of the symmetry and such.

This program takes in images and outputs pdf files screen size. The idea was to use this program to annotate or comment on pages of books people have scanned in for studying purposes. This is a great way to organize and find information by scanning pages from chapters, so you don’t have to flip through a 100pg chapter to find one stinky formula or graph. It is advised one uses a desktop search utility or something to search through the text of pdf files. Personally, I have found MSN desktop search to be the best, not because I love Microsoft software, but simply because it allows you to index only one folder, and it doesn’t start indexing your whole darn hard drive right away. It also has plugins to search text in pdf files. If I have time, I’ll finish writing up my equivalent search utility which searchs html,doc,odc,and pdf files, including annotations, which isn’t that hard since ITEXT has now fixed a bug in reading annotations.
