The Virtual Bag of Laughs is a novelty item for the Windows PC desktop. Just like the original novelty sold in toy stores, the object of the bag of laughs is to simply laugh non-stop when clicked.

When a user left clicks on the icon, the utility laughs. When a user right clicks on the icon the utility pulls up a short menu for About (which simply displays the copyright) and another entry "Click here for more laughs!" This latter entry is a hyperlink to web site identified in an INI file.

Must include full install and uninstall procedure, configurable INI file, Inno Setup script for future compilation, and laughing sounds.

Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.

Complete copyrights to all work purchased.

I envision this utility to be a simple EXE that gets installed and minimized to the Windows System Tray (98/NT/2000/XP).

Must be 100% finished and received by buyer on:

Sep 1, 2002 EDT
Deadline legal notes: All times are expressed in the time zone of the site EDT (UT - 5). If the buyer omitted a time, then the deadline is 11:59:59 PM EDT on the indicated date.

Remember that contacting the other party outside of the site (by email, phone, etc.) on all business projects < $500 (before the buyer's money is escrowed) is a violation of both the software buyer and seller agreements. We monitor all site activity for such violations and can instantly expel transgressers on the spot, so we thank you in advance for your cooperation. If you notice a violation, you can report it to:
All monetary amounts on the site are in United States dollars.
Rent a Coder is a closed auction, so coders can only see their own bids and comments. Buyers can view every posting made on their bid requests.

Hi, I can easily do that with a very cool GUI.I have lots of exp. with GUI development. I think if you could supply laughs that would be better because that way you may not have to be dependent on my laugh-judging-skills. rgds Anurag
