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 1902 - Nikola Tesla filed a patent application for wireless energy transmission. The patent was granted 12 years later. Were still waiting for the kinks to get worked out.
  • On this day in 1903 - The first two-way transatlantic communication, and first wireless telegram was sent between North America and Europe. US President Teddy Roosevelt and King Edward VII wrote to tell each other how awesome the wireless telegraph was.
  • On this day in 2012 - Many websites, led by Reddit, Wikipedia and others, conducted an Internet blackout to protest the US SOPA/PIPA bills.
