StressItOut is out there!

December 30, 2010

A few days ago, I set up a place on Gitorious for StressItOut, and yesterday I made the first commits.

You can get it here:

But beware, it’s in a very early stage of development, from someone quite new to Qt development!

Also, since last time I blogged, StressItOut got a new, quite decent 2D OpenGL painting test, and is now able to save its own configuration.

The project now has its own page on this blog:

A few days ago I blogged about a new project of mine: StressItOut.

It now has 4 kinds of tests available, at a very basic stage: CPU load, Memory test, 2D graphics test, and Serial port test. Too bad I don’t have around here any of the serial port loopbacks I used at my old job. I’ll have to build one one of these days.

A small project: StressItOut

December 16, 2010

Some time ago, I built a customized Debian-based LiveCD with a KDE Plasma desktop, for work.
We repaired and tested industrial computers, so I thought it could be very useful. And it was!
I added all kinds of apps that I found useful for our hardware tests. The only problem was, some of my workmates wanted a proprietary app called BurnInTest included, since they were using its MSwindows version already.
There was a GNU/Linux version, so we ended up adding it to the LiveCD, but I thought it would be very nice to be able to have a similar, graphical tool to do all the tests that app did, but that was Free Software.

So now that I’m getting into Qt/KDE development, it’s time to build that app!
Here’s what I have so far:

A snapshot from StressItOut v0.0.002

The program will have several test modules: CPU burning, memory test, 2D graphics test, 3D test, serial ports, etc.

Hopefully I’ll show it to the world via or similar places when it’s ready to do something real 🙂

Some more progress

At least on the inside. As for the outside…

And also, a little test of the possibilities of QLabels 😀

Amazing, I know 🙂

I’m still looking for ideas for a real app to build as an exercise…
