“I write software for a living but in my (increasingly depleted) spare time I enjoy taking programs apart and finding out how they work, writing small utilities for various purposes and improving on other people’s work by attempting to write smaller and faster code. This is in contrast to bloatware – the gigantic, unreliable offerings so common in commercial and shareware software these days. Here are several utilities that I thought I might share with the world. Most of them are finished or in a state of almost completeness due to lack of time (or laziness). As with all software there is often room for improvement and additional functionality so be sure to check back here for updates.
