Apple 2 Disk Drive Sound Simulator:: v1.1b - 860 KB - 20-Nov-2002

Apple 2 Disk Drive Sound Simulator does just what the title says - it simulates the sound of Apple 2 disk drives by playing back sounds I recorded of my Apple 2 disk drives in action.

Essential for all old Apple ][ fanatics ... ;)

If anyone wants to use the Apple 2 Disk Drive Sounds in their own programs / projects, then please see Apple 2 Disk Drive Sounds (WAV files) below.

Apple 2 Disk Drive Sounds (WAV files):: v1.0f - 594 KB - 25-Jan-2011

Apple 2 Disk Drive Sounds (WAV files) is a ZIP file containing all of the WAV file sounds that I recorded and used for my Apple 2 Disk Drive Sound Simulator.

If anyone wants to use these sounds in their own programs / projects, then that is fine with me: all I ask is that you add a credit to me on your projects's web page, the credits screen, the help file, or similar. A credit something like this would be perfect:

Also, if you email me and let me know about your project, I'll add a link to it on my web page (and a link to it in my Apple 2 Disk Drive Sound Simulator readme file).

Binary Clock is a "for fun" program that displays a re-sizable binary clock - that is, a clock where the time is displayed via the binary number system (base 2) instead of the decimal number system (base 10).

A whole range (in fact, some people would probably say "a whole overkill") of settings, graphics, and options are available via the settings menu.

If you like interesting clocks like this, then make sure that you check out my Nixie Clock.

Birthday and Event Reminder:: v1.0f - 320 KB - 14-Sep-2007

Birthday and Event Reminder allows you to easily keep track of birthdays, anniversaries, school reunions, and other important annual events.

A range of functionality is provided with the program to help you add, update, change, or delete events, and then report on the events occuring within a specified number of days. You can copy and paste this report into emails or print it.

This program should be very useful for helping you keep forwarned of all important dates, so that you give yourself plenty of time to organise and prepare for birthdays, anniversaries, and so on.

Import functionality is also provided so that you can import / load data from other date / event reminder programs directly into Birthday and Event Reminder without having to re-type anything.

Now, there is NO EXCUSE for forgetting or leaving things until the last minute !!! ;)

Special thanks to Egil L for suggesting / requesting this program. Egil has received a free registration to this program and will receive a share of the profits if the program sells like hot cakes.

Bitwise Encryptor Decryptor:: v1.0f - 325 KB - 10-Oct-2015

Bitwise Encryptor Decryptor provides the following functionality:

  • Character Frequency Analysis.
  • Simple Bitwise Encryption of Data.
  • Single Step and Brute Force Decryption of Simple Bitwise Encrypted Data.
  • Analysis of Encrypted Data.

See "Using this Program" in the program's text file for a walk through of each of these uses.

Bitwise Encryptor Decryptor can encrypt / decrypt data one attempt at a time, or cycle through all possible combinations, stopping at possible solutions along the way. Bitwise Encryptor Decryptor also displays a chart and table of ASCII character frequencies in the source and destination data as well as the percentages of alphanumeric characters (a-z,A-Z,0-9) and spaces in the data, which should be useful for anyone wanting to do statistical analysis of data.

All of the functionality / buttons should be pretty explanatory. All of the buttons have tool tips / pop-up help, so just hover the mouse pointer over a button to see further information / help about the button's functionality.

5 bitwise operators are supported so far:

  • NOT: flip / invert the bits. e.g. NOT 01101 = 10010
  • SHR / SHL: shift right and left without carry. e.g. SHR 01101 = 00110 (the 1 bit on the right was lost !)
  • ROR / ROL: shift right and left with carry. e.g. ROR 01101 = 10110 (the 1 bit on the right was wrapped around to the left - NO data was lost !)

I've also included a special file "Project4b_encrypted.txt" which contains a special message for those who want to run this program's Brute Force decryption.

Note: Bitwise Encryption is NOT serious encryption in any way, shape, or form. It is a very simple and very easily crackable encryption that is only really used when people are first learning about encryption or bitwise operators. Bitwise Encryptor Decryptor is provided to help people do that. :)

Clipboard Tools is ideal for clearing Windows clipboard for you.

Computer Space Simulator:: v1.0 - 1,100 KB - 11-May-2005

Computer Space Simulator is my remake / recreation of classic, pioneering video arcade game Computer Space, which was the very first coin-operated video arcade game and went on sale in 1971. Only 1,500 Computer Space machines were built, and it is estimated that less than 500 of these machines still exist.

The game play in Computer Space consists of you controlling a Rocket and attacking and avoiding the computer controlled enemy Saucers that are trying to shoot you or collide with you. You have an infinite number of lives, but each game has a set time limit. The object of the game is to have a higher score than the enemy at the end of the time limit.

This simulator supports the following modes of operation:

  • Demo / Attract mode
  • 1 Player Vs Saucers
  • Co-Op 2 Player Against the Saucers
  • Deathmatch - Player 1 Vs Player 2 (No Saucers)

A multitude of game settings and options are provided, so you can create your own variations of the game and customise things to any required level of difficulty. You can also share your game variations with friends via the Load / Save settings buttons and functionality provided with the simulator. At any time you can restore the correct / factory default settings via the "Restore" button. See the On-Line help for further details.

I entered a special One Button / One Switch version of my simulator in the Retro-Remakes One Click programming competition. The download links for both versions - the standard version and the One Click version - are provided on the right.

Special thanks to Kevin at Computer Space Fan for all of his advice, testing, feedback, checking, support, and encouragement during the development of this simulator. Make sure you visit Kevin's Computer Space Fan web site for a wealth of information, pictures, videos, sights, sounds, history, trivia, and more about Computer Space.

CPUs Monitor (multiple CPU) :: v1.0f - 360 KB - 18-Oct-2015

CPUs Monitor provides the following functionality:

  • Displays CPU Utilisation (Usage) for each CPU in your system (unless you turn this off in the Settings screen).
  • Displays the average CPU Utilisation (Usage) according to settings you specify on the Settings screen (Edit -> Settings). For example, you can specify that you want to see the Average CPU Usage for all CPUs for each refresh (0 seconds), and/or the Average CPU Usage for the last 5, 10, 30, 60, and/or whatever seconds you want, and/or include the Average CPU Usage since the program has been running (for this run of the program).

Lots of options are provided in the Settings screen (Edit -> Settings) to control the layout of the CPU graph. And, as you change settings, the main screen's CPU graph automatically updates on-the-fly to reflect your latest settings.

CPUs Monitor also includes my "CPU Usage Drop alarm" functionality (similar to functionality included in my RAM / Swap Monitor and CPU Usage Drop Alarm programs). When activated (by clicking the "Activate" button) this functionality plays a sound over and over again until the user clicks the OK button when the CPU usage drops below a user specified level for a user specified number of seconds. This is very useful for telling you when a big job has ended, such as a Virus Scan, Disk Scan, Disk Defragment, CD/DVD Burning, video processing and conversions, etc.

I like to keep an eye on the resource usage (and the average resource usage) in my computer systems and I developed CPUs Monitor to help me do this. Maybe someone else out there will find this useful as well ?

This program enables you to easily and quickly make sure you have the latest versions of files on all machines / media, and that your master directory contains the latest versions of all files.

File Usage Monitor simply monitors and logs the usage of files that you want to monitor: how many hours each file has been open / in use, the date/time it was opened, the date/time it was closed, etc. for any files you want to monitor.

I use File Usage Monitor to keep track of various documents, spreadsheets, and files that I work on so that I can tell when the files were last changed, when I last worked on them, how long I have worked on them for, and so on. File Usage Monitor also records the date / time each time that it is started (executed, run) and ended (exited, closed) in the event log.

An example use of this program could be to enable companies / people to justify / support work invoices sent to clients by logging the amount of time spent working on computer files relating to each client.

Game / Sprite Engine (Prototype):: v0.05 - 780 KB - 10-Sep-2002

Game / Sprite Engine (Prototype) is a prototype game which allows me to develop and test my prototype sprite engine, which allows an unlimited number of sprites, each with their own dimensions, number of frames, animation speeds (frame delays), and many other characteristics.

This prototype game is not polished or even fully playable, and is severely lacking in many areas:

  • the sound is abysmal,
  • the control system is limited to the keyboard,
  • the code is largely unoptimised,
  • the game is barely playable,
  • the sprites are low quality and each only has a few frames of animation,
  • the background is a simple single scrolling bitmap,
  • the collision detection is not satisfactory,
  • etc
However, it serves as a basis upon which I can further develop my game and sprite engines.

As far as I can determine, it is the first computer game to feature aliens attacking over a steaming bowl of pasta !! ;))

Anyway, check it out if you like .... ;)

MAME32 INI Tools currently enables you to load a MAME INI File (which is created by the Windows GUI version of MAME) and (in the blink of an eye) allow you to see which ROMs and Sound Samples are missing / invalid.

Before running MAME 32 INI Tools, you will need to have run MAME 32 for Windows (i.e. the GUI version), and asked MAME to do a full audit of all games.

N.B. This program is for use with MAME 32 v0.63 or later. If you are using a version of MAME prior to v0.63, then please use MAME 32 Tools (see above).

Please Note: I have not tested / used this program with any recent versions of MAME for years, so it might not work with recent MAMEs.

    Mosaic Maker Extractor:: v1.0f - 910 KB - 14-Sep-2007

    Mosaic Maker Extractor enables you to create mosaics or pull them apart again into their component images (tiles).

    A mosaic is a big picture made out of lots of little pictures.

    So, with Mosaic Maker Extractor, you can create your own mosaics or extract the tiles from existing mosaics for further use in other mosaics.

    On-line help and a step-by-step getting started guide with screen shots is included with the program.

    To show you what this program can do, I've included some basic sample mosaics below.

    Below is a mosaic based on my pampered pooch, Boogle.

    Here's a deep zoom into the original, highest resolution version of the mosaic, down to a random section of 3x3 tiles. Very "pixelly" at this level of zoom. I created the mosaic, I have the source photo tiles right here on screen next to the zoom, and I cannot recognise a single "face".

    ROM Clone Zip Manager can delete redundant / duplicate files from inside Clone ROM ZIPs.

    That is, ROM Clone Zip Manager scans your Clone ROM ZIP files (in all directories you specify) and compares each file inside these against the files inside the Parent ROM ZIP file, and if an identical file is found (with the same name and CRC) then it is deleted from the Clone ROM ZIP file.

    In adition, you can backup the files (and extract them to another directory) before they are deleted from inside the Clone ROM ZIP file.

    ROM Clone Zip Manager also enables you to move all Clone ZIP files to another directory of your choice.

    I wrote this program and ran it against my MAME ZIP files, and, in less than 2 minutes, it had saved me a whopping 191 MB of disk space !

    This means that you can extract all ROM ZIP differences with a few mouse clicks and within seconds / minutes (depending on files sizes).

    And, this also means that you can use and apply all differences to update your ROMS with a few mouse clicks and have all your ROMs updated within seconds / minutes (depending on files sizes).

    This should help with what was previously a nightmarish, manual job of using "Fix Files" to update your existing ROM sets.

    Sanitize Disk Space:: v2.3f - 300 KB - 18-Jul-2015

    Sanitize Disk Space enables you to select any writable drive connected to your PC, such as any USB thumb drive, external harddrives, network drives, or any of your PC's harddrives or harddrive partitions, and then sanitize the free / unused space on this drive.

    The following sanitization levels are supported by this program:

    1. Prepare for Drive Imaging (1 pass)
    2. Basic / Quick (1 Pass)
    3. Medium (3 Passes)
    4. High (9 Passes)
    5. Industrial Strength (20 Passes)
    6. Department of Defense (35 Passes)
    7. You've Got to be Joking (100 Passes)

    Once sanitized (at a high sanitization level), the data in your deleted files can never again be recovered, and no hacker - no matter how clever - should ever be able to view any data contained in your deleted files.

    This processing should be highly desirable for anyone who is selling or replacing their PC - especially if the PC contained any sensitive or personal or confidential data.

    This is the Windows Graphical User Interface (GUI) version of this program. There is another version as well, see Sanitize Disk Space CL - Windows Command Line version.

    • Planet Reports containing statistics and detailed information on each planet or our Sun - including size, mass, length of day, temperature ranges, density, volume, surface area, orbital velocity, space craft visits, moons, discovery details, and many dozens of other measurements, statistics, and interesting facts.

    • A Weight Calculator to enable you to enter your weight and calculate your weight on each planet.

    • Extract Data: you can copy and paste any or all selected data values into a spreadsheet or your own reports at the click of a mouse button.

    • Gravity Calculator allows you to enter the mass and volume of an object relative to Earth or the Sun, and calculate the object's gravity. This works perfectly for all asteronomical objects, including stars, Neutron Stars, Black Holes, planets and moons in our solar system, and exo-planets (planets around other stars).

    • Planet and Solar System Images.

    This program should be interesting to people of all ages !!

    Spam Analysis Tool:: v1.0 - 280 KB - 3-Dec-2003

    Spam Analysis Tool is especially designed for use by Mail System Administrators, or anyone else who runs an email server or wants to block spam / junk emails.

    SPAM (i.e unsolicited junk email) is a rotten scurge that is annoying millions of internet users and causing all sorts of havoc due to clogged mail boxes and clogged servers, not to mention the nasty payloads (viruses, trojans, etc) that many spam emails contain.

    Most email clients (such as Outlook) allow you to save emails to your harddisk with the headers intact. e.g. in Outlook, simply drag and drop the spam emails to a directory on your harddisk. (Do not open them or run any programs they contain).

    Once saved to your harddrive with the email headers intact, these spam emails can be analysed so that their real source can be identified, and then all emails from this source can be blocked in the future. Doing this will help reduce the volumes of spam that you receive in the future.

    Spam Analysis Tool enables you to:

    • Step through directories full of spam email,
    • View just the email headers or the entire email,
    • View each spam email's contents with colour coding
    • Select text (such as IP addresses, email addresses, etc) at the click of the mouse button, and add these to a list of unique items (which can be incorporated into a block file),
    • And do various other things.

    Sudoku Solver Helper Trainer :: v1.1f - 285 KB - 18-Feb-2015

    Sudoku Solver Helper Trainer solves sudoku puzzles, and it does this exactly how I personally solve the puzzles. When I solve sudoku puzzles, I work out and write down the numbers that can go into each row, column, 3x3 box on the paper next to the puzzle, and then work out which numbers cannot go into each row, column, etc, and then solve the puzzle based on this information. I wrote this program to solve the puzzles exactly the way I do it.

    However, this is only the start. Sudoku Solver Helper Trainer can do *lots* more. Sudoku Solver Helper Trainer provides functionality to:

    • Solve Sudoku puzzles. :)

    • Give you hints on the next best "move" you can make to solve a puzzle (the program highlights the cell without giving you the answer).

    • Displays the numbers that still need to be placed in each row, column, and 3x3 box, so you don't need to write this down and keep track of this on paper. This makes solving puzzles *much* quicker and easier, because my program does this tedious work for you !!

    • Solve the next cell / make the next move (the program highlights and solves (fills in the answer) for the next best move).

    • Solve all cells / make all moves until the puzzle is solved or until the puzzle is deemed "unsolvable".

    • Saves and loads puzzles to/from file (a bunch of puzzles are included with the program to get you started).

    • Solves "unsolvable" puzzles by "Brute Force" methods. That is, the program guesses a number and then tries to solve the rest of the puzzle. If this doesn't work, then Sudoku Solver Helper Trainer will back track, guess a different number at this cell or go to another cell and try numbers and keep trying until the puzzle is solved.

    Sudoku Solver Helper Trainer includes a selection of more than 25 Sudoku puzzles: easy, medium, hard, and evil. But you can add as many puzzles as you like - just type 9 lines of 9 numbers per line separated by commas into a plain text file, or, enter the numbers directly into Sudoku Solver Helper Trainer's grid and save the puzzle as a new file.

    Sudoku Solver Helper Trainer can help you and show you how to solve sudoku puzzles so that you become better and faster at solving them yourself. It sure helped me !

    See the program's readme file and these screen shots for further details.
