Description

Experience Level: Intermediate
Brief description as the program is relatively simple.

Essentially need 2 programs- one server, and one client. Both are to run on windows, and ideally be able to run from a single .exe file (the server needs an additional text file)

* Client program
Shows information in a table format- 3 columns- Name, Department, Number
Also has an single drop down menu with options of setup, help, quit.

Setup lets you enter the ip address of the server, set your name and your department. Help brings up a popup box with a bit of text information. Quit obviously quits the program.

* Server program
Sends and receives the 'number' variable to and from all clients. All data is stored in a text file. GUI can be the same as for the client.

The 'number' variable will change over a period of time, so this is the data that needs to be updated by sending it to the server, and receiving the updated value from all the other clients (once every minute)

Server and all clients will be running on the same network (no issue with getting around routers)

Project needs to be completed ASAP (end of the week is target), fee is negotiable.
