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 1888 - William Seward Burroughs received four patents, including one for a Calculating Machine. It would lead to the creation of the Burroughs Adding Machine Company.
  • On this day in 1973 - Sergey Brin was born in Moscow. His family immigrated to the US in 1979. He would grow up to co-develop a search engine with Larry Page and co-found Google.
  • On this day in 1993 - NASA lost contact with the Mars Observer three days before it was supposed to enter orbit. As it began to pressurize fuel tanks, the spacecrafts transmitters went silent and it was never heard from again.
