Monitor test

As I promised, I've been working on a little program which could replace Nokia Monitor test.

So, finally I can present to you my latest creation (but still one of the first published ones): the Monitor test app.
Presented to you under modified BSD license.

Download the program from here.

The archive is a bit bigger because it contains both 32 and 64 bit windows binaries. Just unpack anywhere and run the appropriate exe.
I believe it shouldn't be hard to port this app to linux or mac os X, but I currently don't have either the time nor the resources necessary.
This program requires Visual C++ redistributable package to run.

If there will be any interest in this app, I will release the source code and / or work on further improvements like actually writing a manual and stuff like that. Currently you have to pretty much figure out yourself what each test / pattern is supposed to tell you.

Let's just say that mouse left clicks will advance through patterns.
And also scroll wheel works in mandelbrot and in monitor refresh rate test (rotating wheel).

For now, enjoy and let me know what you think of it.
