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.

  • On this day in 1967 - The first Consumer Electronics Show opened in New York City occupying the Americana and New York Hilton Hotels. It was devoted to home entertainment electronics and featured such advances as portable color TVs and video tape recorders.
  • On this day in 1981 - After six years as a company, Microsoft incorporated in the state of Washington.
  • On this day in 1998 - Microsoft released Windows 98 with less hype than Windows 95, but more consumer focus. Windows 98 was the last version of Windows that was based on DOS.
