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 1935 - General Electric sold the first spectrophotometer. It could detect two million different shades of color and make a permanent record chart of the results.
  • On this day in 1961 - Wes Clark began working on the Laboratory Instrument Computer (LINC), at MIT's Lincoln Laboratory. It was one of the earliest examples of a user-friendly machine that you could communicate with the user while it operated. It set the standard for personal computer design.
