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 1887 - 65-year-old Rev. Hannibal Goodwin took his nitrocellulose flexible film out of his attic laboratory and into the patent rolls. He beat the Eastman Kodak Company by two years, but his vaguely-worded patent led to a 27-year legal battle.
- On this day in 1983 - Microsoft Corp. announced its two-button Microsoft Mouse built for IBM computers and meant to be used with the new Microsoft Word Processor. Only 5,000 sold of the 10,000 made.
