HaloBrowser
HaloBrowser is an application that, given a list of Halo game servers, queries all of them for their current status, runs those that respond through a set of filters you specify in an ASCII text (.TXT) file, finds servers on which players you know are playing, and displays the resulting list of servers. Once the list is on-screen, a server can be selected to view all of the detailed information about its current game and, when desired, launch Halo to join that game.

In other words, it's a Halo game server browser. I wrote HaloBrowser because I couldn't find any other single piece of software that did everything I wanted:

Reasonably easy to use (can page through servers quickly, etc.).
Tell me when a friend is on-line, and where.
Give me full game details, fast.
Powerful filtering capabilities!
QTracker has a player finder but doesn't show much info about a game. HaloSpy is great for seeing everything there is to know about a game (almost), but checking one server at a time is tedious and slow. SeeMePlayMe and GameSpy both gave me enough hassle that I never got to really see what they can do. And Halo's in-game browser, well, that just sucks. Finally, nothing I know of comes close to doing what I want in terms of filtering.

As a bonus, I used HaloBrowser as an opportunity to start learning Java, something I've been long overdue in doing (I'm a software engineer by profession).
