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 1880 - New York's Broadway from 14th to 26th street was first lighted by electricity and became known as the Great White Way.
  • On this day in 1951 - In Idaho, the Experimental Breed Reactor no. 1 also known as EBR-1, became the first power plant to produce electricity using atomic energy. It would take 2 more years to prove it could create more fuel than it consumed.
  • On this day in 1996 - Apple announced it would acquire NeXT Computer and bring co-founder Steve Jobs back to the company he left in 1985.
