Personal Projects ( just because I wanted to )

Junction-Aware Utilities for NTFS ( See Codewell's Publish Area )

Command-line utilities to Make and Remove NTFS Junctions. Also includes a replacement for the dir command that displays Junctions nicely. Written in 'C'.

PICkit™ 1 Pedagogical Programs ( See Codewell's Publish Area )

More than 40 simple example programs I wrote while learning to program the Microchip 12F629/12F675/16F630/16F676 family of 8/14-pin FLASH programmable PIC microcontrollers. Written mostly in MPASM; limited use of WinSPICE 3 and WinCUPL 4 or 5.

PIC32MX Pedagogical Programs ( See Codewell's Publish Area )

More than a dozen example programs I wrote while learning to program the Microchip PIC32MX family of 32-bit FLASH programmable PIC microcontrollers.

Zar ( See Codewell's Publish Area )

A multi-platform, zlib-based compressing archiver. Written in 'C'.

Simple Recursive Fast Fourier Transform ( See Codewell's Publish Area )

These codes compute the Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) of an input data vector. They all use a Fast Fourier Transform algorithm, which is Recursive and that has been implemented in a very simple and easy-to-understand manner.

Implementation languages include: C, C++, Clojure, Java, Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby, Scheme.

TheTimeIs ( See Codewell's Publish Area )

A vague Palm OS clock.

TheTimeIs tells the current time, using vague phrases such as "nearly quarter till noon" and "five-thirty". Written in 'C' and PilRC, using PRC-Tools (Palm OS programming with GCC) and POSE (the Palm OS Emulator) on Linux.

Freeciv ( See http://www.freeciv.org/ )

A networked, multiplayer strategy game, released under the GNU General Public License. It is generally comparable with Civilization II®, published by Microprose®. Freeciv is maintained by an international team of coders and enthusiasts.

I contributed to the development of Freeciv since version 1.8.0, and for versions 1.9.0 through 1.12.0 I was the principal Administrator for the project. Freeciv is written in 'C' for the Unix platform.

JavaClock ( See Codewell's Publish Area )

My JavaClock is simply an analog clock, written in Java. It can display any of four time scales (GMT, LMT, GMST, LMST). To make the sidereal scales more fun, I've included a simple stellar-planisphere view.

Feather ( See Codewell's Publish Area )

Feather started out as a lightweight finger implementation for the Mac (OS 6). It grew to include both client and server components, and at least some support for eleven of the simplest Unix network protocols (Day Time, Discard, Echo, Finger, HTTP/0.9, Net Stat, NTP/asym, Quote, Sys Stat, Time, Who Is) and two utility functions (DNS Lookup, Ping (ICMP Echo)). It is written in Metrowerks CodeWarrior C++, using the PowerPlant class library.
