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 1949 - A modified German V-2 ballistic missile launched from White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico, reached an altitude of 244 miles, putting it well above the Krmn line. It was the first US rocket to reach outer space.
  • On this day in 1955 - A boy was born to University of Wisconsin graduate students Joanne Simpson and Abdulfattah Jandali. He was given up for adoption and taken in by a machinist and his wife in Mountain View, California. They named him Steve Jobs.
  • On this day in 2011 - The Space Shuttle Discovery lifted off from Cape Canaveral on STS-133, its final mission.
