Projects

A list of significant software projects that I am working on (by myself or otherwise) or have completed.

Current projects

  • Various Safari app extensions. See my github.

Maintenance-mode Projects

  • SelfSolved
    • A personal/community information repository for problem-solvers. When you come across a problem, SelfSolved helps you document it, the websites you visited while searching for a solution, and the solution that you ended up using (if any). This will help yourself as you try to solve similar problems in the future, as well as others who may be having the same issue. Yes, I know StackOverflow exists. I made this thing back in 2008, and it’s designed to document your own solutions, not ask for other people’s help. I’m anti-social like that.
  • NAT-PMP.py
    • a NAT-PMP (Network Address Translation Port Mapping Protocol) library and testing client for Python
  • What’s my lat lon
    • A small tool to output the current location coordinate pair (latitude, longitude), using both browser/GPS geolocation API (if available) and IP geolocation. Written as a Node.js exercise.
