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.

  • On this day in 1944 - Germany launched the first guided missile attack in history, sending V-1 rockets into London.
  • On this day in 1983 - Pioneer 10 became the first human-made object to pass outside Plutos orbit and leave the central solar system.
