This section was for code that I wanted to make available in one way or another, but it turned out better to offer downloads instead. I won’t be updating this page, but it remains for posterities sake flaws and all.


Gwbasic was one of the first languages I learned to use, most of the code isn’t particularly neat.

Digger Clone source code

Ghost Guzzler Remake source code

Down-hill Skiing Remake source code

Turbo Pascal

Turbo Pascal was a language I learned in my mid to late teens, I consequently ported some of my old basic programs to it. Most of the code is still pretty messy as I had not yet learned more professional coding practises.

Num Drop Pascal source code

Pong Clone Pascal source code

In-line Assembly code in Pascal

Buffered Text file reading and writing

Run-Length Encoding

Huffman coding and the compression results.


Python is a language I’ve started to learn very recently. I’ve found it’s very useful for scripting on my on old sparc station machine. I started learning it for work.

These are the initial posts I made whilst developing some tools for NetBSD.

Python Script: Building packages in pkgsrc for NetBSD

Python Script: Clean up out of date packages in pkgsrc.

But you can find the latest copies of the scripts on the following link
