Day 18 - Mouse Heat Map
Where has your mouse pointer been going all day? While this app is running (located in systray) it will record everywhere your mouse goes. After a while, right click the icon, and get a full screen mouse heat map overlay.
The code was implemented smartly, and will not take up much RAM or CPU. It won't grow in consumption over time either (in theory...). It doesn't actually record the mouse, it just records a hit count for a giant grid of points.
NOTE: This is not multi-monitor friendly as of yet. It will only do your primary monitor. When I get the time, I will fix
Yet another sweet app... Where are the naysayers now? Certainly not posting in my comment section any longer. w00t!

As a reminder, I code an app every evening, starting at the time posted above. All code sessions are observed over WebEx, and the app idea is decided on the fly. Thanks tonight to Rajio - who had this idea, and to the code project's Christian Graus whose example of gaussian blur code I ripped (and credited).
