Web Links

Other Interests and Hobbies

At some point, I enjoyed solving Nonograms, and writing programs to solve them.  I created and maintain the Nonogram Solver site.

The Web has turned into an utter abomination, totally missing the point of being able to adapt to the rendering conditions.  To get this frustration off my chest, a created and maintain "How The Web Went Wrong".


I created and maintain Forge@Lancaster, a source-code management site for the School.

Current Teaching

Although I'm not currently teaching as such, I do maintain “Learning C from Java”, created to support Lancaster students who were taught Java programming in their first year, and needed C for later aspects of their degrees.
