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. 

 

 

From Tom Merritt's Chronology of Tech History

  • On this day in 1900 - German physicist Max Planck published his theory that radiant energy is made up of particle-like components, known as quantum. And quantum physics was born.
  • On this day in 1972 - Eugene Cernan ended a 7 hour and 15 minute EVA, climbed back aboard the Apollo 17 Lunar Module and became the last person to walk on the moon.
  • On this day in 1996 - John Tu and David Sun, the founders of Kingston Technology took 0 million from the sale of their privately held enterprise and gave it to employees, a spontaneous gesture to those who had helped make the memory-module company a market leader.
