Validation 1 - Some amusing (hopefully)
validations done as demos for the Netwood Design center a few years
Validation 2 - A real script that a web designer
asked me to develop without offering to pay (alas, the web); but I
did it for the practice. Funny how some people say "I owe
you one," then never offer you a return favor.
Roman Numeral Year Converter - Why get caught baffled when you
have to convert?
Menus 2 - A distant relative in Sweden asked for a version in which the
menu item stayed on until another menu item is selected. The menu is
contained in a left frame.
Grid - A grandiose DHTML (dynamic HTML) experiment in trying to
been written as a Java applet. The idea is that the user
should be able to look at the grid and track the size of any sort of
astigmatism that their doctor has diagnosed and then send the
information back. Grandiose. It seems to work better in
Netscape Navigator than in Internet Explorer, which keeps wanting to
reload the dot pictures when it resizes them. The code
underneath is still a bit raw, since the project was discontinued.
Excel File Lister
written as a VBS Windows Scripting Host script. Lists all
files in a directory in an Excel workbook, including their file
Excel Web Directory
Lister - a version of the File Lister that allows you to display
all files in a backup web directory as links to the web site.
It drills down into all subdirectories. This is useful for
going to each and every page or image of a site and annotating what
needs to be done to the pages. I was hoping that various
departments at work would use it as a means of reviewing their
pages, but first thing you have to do, I think, is get people to
"own" their portion of the site so that they feel
responsible for maintaining its content. In other words, the
application is in mothballs.
System (ASP and Access VBA)
File management on the
cheap for a small company - the one I work for.
mSQL web database
Removed all code example
files, since it has been close to five years since I used the program
and I haven't had any response in that time from the web. No
doubt the program has changed a lot in the meanwhile. However,
it is still produced by Hughes
Technologies of Australia and is probably as good as ever, and
much cheaper than Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle. My examples
were of useful functionality in mSQL's "Lite" C-style
Source Lines of Code
Counts lines of code in
selected C, C++ and H files or code directories and places the
individual and total count in an Excel workbook.
When Forehelp went out of
business, I began writing help systems in Robohelp, which has always
been the dominant help authoring software anyway.
Professional and InstallShield Developer (MSI)
I have been updating old
InstallShield installers to Microsoft's new MSI (Microsoft Installer)
database installer technology for Windows 2000 and XP, which allows
more fine-grained control of software installation and application
tracking. If you have ever seen that "Modify, Repair,
Remove" dialog, that is MSI.
