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 1973 - Bob Metcalfe of the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center wrote a memo on an IBM Selectric typewriter, outlining how to connect personal computers to a shared printer. Metcalfe says If Ethernet was invented in any one memo, by any one person, or on any one day, this was it.
  • On this day in 1990 - Microsoft released Windows 3.0. It featured big improvements in interface and multitasking. Its Control Panel feature caught the eye of Apple, which sued, and lost.
