A software developer’s musings on software development


Here are a few projects that I've worked on in my spare time.

Big Fraction

A Java library representing unlimited precision fractions. Available via Maven Central.


This is an application allowing you to pick the notes in a guitar chord, and it shows the possible names for that chord, and also allows you to hear what the chord will sound like.


This is an application allowing you to display the current time in many time zones in the system tray.

Mini Calendar

This is an application allowing you to generate a 3-centimeter-wide calendar—perfect for affixing to the side of your monitor.

Half a Lifetime

This is a simple app that figures out the exact date that was half a lifetime ago for you.

JSON Formatter

A very lightweight app to prettify/uglify JSON data directly in the browser.

Quick Replace

A powerful in-browser regular expression evaluator, hidden behind an opaque developer UI. (I wrote this for me so I don't have any plans to make the UI more user-friendly. Sorry not sorry.)
