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 1963 - The CBS broadcast of the college football game between Army and Navy featured the first use of video instant replay during a sports telecast. Some people got confused and called to complain.
  • On this day in 1972 - The last Apollo moon mission, Apollo 17 was launched. The crew took the famous Blue Marble picture that now graces desktop backgrounds everywhere.
  • On this day in 1999 - Six months after its birth, Napster was sued by the Recording Industry Association of America. The Industry refused to settle, thus insuring that digital music sales would remain low for years to come.
