Welcome 

 

These pages are an attempt to shake off the bit-mould from the many software projects I have started, and mostly not finished over the years. Some of this stuff is very usable, some of it needs work.

I also hope to document some of the more interesting projects I've undertaken.

In additional to that it is an aide-mémoire to little bits of problem solving I frequently encounter day to day.

The Source code section provides downloadable source code to some of the software projects here. Where available binaries are also provided. A lot of projects I have coded over the years have been written in Borland Delphi, mainly because that is what I started using 20 years ago. 

 

 

From Tom Merritt's Chronology of Tech History

  • On this day in 1957 - NBC taped and broadcast President Dwight D. Eisenhower's second inauguration address, further popularizing the taping of video.
  • On this day in 1981 - The first DeLorean DMC-12 sports car rolled off the production line in Dunmurry, Northern Ireland. This one made no use of gigawatts in any way.
  • On this day in 2004 - The Mars Rover, Spirit abruptly stopped transmitting. Apparently too many files had been written to the flash memory and it went into fault mode.
