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 1931 - Auguste Piccard and Charles Knipfer took man's first trip into the stratosphere when they rode in a pressurized cabin attached to a balloon to an altitude of 51,800 feet.
  • On this day in 1959 - After almost a decade, MIT shut down its Whirlwind computer. It ran 35 hours a week at 90 percent utility using an electrostatic tube memory.
