A small project: StressItOut

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 Qt-apps.org or similar places when it’s ready to do something real 🙂
