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.
