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 1910 - The first US patent for a traffic signal system was issued to Ernest E. Sirrine. It switched an illuminated sign between the words stop and proceed.
  • On this day in 1972 - Nolan Bushnell installed a coin-operated arcade game at Andy Capps tavern in Sunnyvale, California. It only played Allan Alcorns Pong. Within 4 months there were 10,000 across the country.
