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 1877 - Thomas Edison tested out his new phonograph invention, by recording the first lines of the poem Mary Had a Little Lamb. He recreated the event in 1927.
  • On this day in 1957 - Responding to Sputnik, the United States launched the Vanguard TV3. The rocket only made it a little over a meter off the launch pad before it fell back and was destroyed. A fuel leak was thought to have caused the failure.
  • On this day in 2006 - NASA revealed photographs from the Martian Global Surveyor, of two craters called Terra Sirenum and Centauri Montes which appeared to show evidence that water existed on the surface Mars, as recently as five years before.
