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 1925 - The first commercial radio facsimile transmission was sent from San Francisco to New York City. It was a photograph showing Louis B. Mayer presenting Marion Davies with a gift.
  • On this day in 1930 - BBC Radio made the startling announcement that nothing terribly important had happened. Listeners who tuned in to hear the news bulletin were told, There is no news. Piano music began subsequently.
  • On this day in 1986 - Newspapers reported that IBM had become the first to use a megabit chip, a memory chip capable of storing 1 million bits of information, in its Model 3090.
