I'm a former MacOS programmer retooling for MSWindows and Linux, and in need of work (see Resume). My secret superpower is solving problems that other people don't think they have.
WMP Volume Keys utility app (Windows)
Control Microsoft's Windows Media Player volume and mute from your keyboard, even when Windows Media Player is not in front or is minimized, even if your keyboard has no Mute, Lower Volume, or Raise Volume keys. If your keyboard has those keys, make them control Windows Media Player directly, instead of changing the main volume and mute.
TrayButton source code (Windows)
Use TrayButton.cp to allow your application to minimize to either a Taskbar button or to a Taskbar Notification ("SysTray") icon. TrayButton can use either a Tool window to hide the Taskbar Button or not change the window style. Usage is simple. TrayButton subclasses your window, and takes care of all the work.
Lines & Bubbles toy app (Windows, MacOS)
I wrote Lines, and then Bubbles, back in 1985, for the then-new Apple Macintosh computer, and it caused some excitement then, in those simpler days. Now, 20 years later, here are Lines and Bubbles, together in one application, for Mac and Windows.
Apple Shaped Windows toy app (Windows, MacOS)
I wrote Apple Shaped Windows back in 1985, to demonstate my sk!11z by writing a WDEF with an unusual shape. Like Lines, it also caused some excitement then. Now, 20 years later, here is a Windows version.
MakeDist programmer's utility (Windows)
MakeDist is a VBScript utility I use to automate Making a Distribution: it makes a backup of the project, copys the executable and optionally the source to my distribution folder, with unneeded files removed, and then zips everything up.

I'm new to HTML, but I've tried to make a web page that will display properly in a wide range of Web Browsers, without a lot of compatibility issues. Here's how I do it.
I'm a nerd from way back.
