Version 4.0 - Gone, but not forgotten

Side Note
SMTC used to be available on Tucows and but are no longer there since both companies decided to make a profit instead of helping me... so this and VersionTracker are now the only official distribution points for SMTC.

The Birth of the Colors

A while ago, I was adjusting my monitor's settings, and in my stupidity, I made a real mess of the settings... I needed to fix everything, but couldn't do it easily. I decided that some kind of screen test pattern was needed so I could re-align everything and correct the colors. Several days later, Show Me The Colors! was born. The idea itself really isn't that original - people have been using test patterns for ages. I just applied it to a computer screen.
As well as creating my basic test patterns, I decided along the way to incorporate some tests for spotting dead/stuck pixels on LCDs. There are also some patterns for assisting with positioning projectors as well. Overall, it's kinda handy.
