Gathered here is a collection of miscellaneous stuff that's been on this site since I first created it back in 2001, and which, while I doubt it would be useful to anyone any more (really, if I have anything that is useful to anyone it's likely on my GitHub account), it seems to make sense to maintain the URL and location.
garble-track-plot is a small shell script I used to
use on my GNU/Linux box that would let me make quick and dirty plots of
tracks I'd recorded on and downloaded (using
garble) from my Garmin GPS
unit; and I don't mean a GPS unit like we know and love today, I'm talking a
small hand-held brick, with no maps or anything fancy like that, just a
monochrome LCD display.
The script took the data, did unspeakable things to it with
sed, and then
blasted it through
gnuplot to draw out a
m_palm for LBDB
m_palm is an add-on module for the Little Brother's
Database. It gives access to Palm address
book data, pulling out all the people it can find with email addresses.
m_palm is part of LBDB.
BahaiCalendar.pas is some Delphi code I wrote for a friend who is working on a Baha'i calender program. The core of the code is based on the Baha'i calendar chapter of Calendrical Calculations (a book that should be on the bookshelf of all programmers).
Please note that the authors of the book have requested that anyone wishing
to make "commercial use" of the code should seek their permission before
doing so. If you want to use
BahaiCalendar.pas you can assume that you've
already got my permission (a credit in your application would be nice, but
that's up to you) but you must decide if you need to seek permission off
the authors of Calendrical Calculations. If in doubt, drop them a line.
Vamage - Visual Damage Manager for FS2K2
Vamage is a simple utility that lets you easily add the visual damage flag to aircraft in your installed copy of Microsoft Flight Simulator2002.
Vamage is written in Borland Delphi, is released under the GPL and, accordingly, comes with full source code.
Note that Vamage also works with FS2004.
Mandelbrot Set Plotter in OCaml
mandeldraw is the result of my
first ever play with OCaml. As such I don't offer
it as a good example of good OCaml coding, I only offer it as something
someone might want to play with and, perhaps, provide feedback about.

extlogkeywords - Report on search keywords found in web log files
extlogkeywords is a simple
command line tool that extracts search keywords from web log files and
produces different types of reports based on what it finds. It doesn't aim
to be any better than the other tools that can be downloaded out on the web,
it just happens that I fancied hacking up something of my own for fun.
The most interesting/pointless feature is its ability to produce data that can be fed to GraphViz.
