Copycat is a new project for which I will copy parts, or maybe even everything, from a program. Just to see if I can manage to get the exact same part done. Of course I will write about it how I did it. Call it a learning experience.
Take for example the utility Ranger from Steven Solie. Have a look at the Machine tab from that utility. Would it not be great to know how to get that kind of info? For my first project I will do exactly that. Create a copy of the machine tab from Ranger. First I will just print out all the info and once I have that done I will even create the same look. It will teach me how to get that machine info and also how to create such a layout. It will be a lot of fun.
