The Top 10 Reasons to Procrastinate

Someone please explain this to me.


Here are some Java applets I wrote:

3D TicTacToe is played on a 4x4x4 grid. You need four in a row to win. The 'Hard' and 'Harder' computer levels are pratically the same. 'Buff' is a depth-limited search with alpha-beta pruning. I added some primitive move ordering to enhance the speed effects of the pruning. Buffness (depth limit) 5 could still take up to a minute; Buffness 6 is not for computers that are faint of processor.

SpaceInvaders is not entirely my own creation. It was a team project for a freshmen class I took. However, I carried the team, if I do say so myself. By the way, I am by no means a Jets fan. I forget how they made me go along with that team name. Also, there are cheat codes; I think they all begin with the letter 's'.
