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 1884 - The New York Times reported that sending mails by electricity was to be investigated by the Post Office Committee of the US House, by providing for contracts with an existing telegraph company. It could lead to 10-cent telegrams!
- On this day in 1986 - Design flaws made worse by human error during a safety test, led to the worst nuclear disaster yet, and a partial meltdown at the Chernobyl Nuclear Plant.
