WS Subscriber Stats – Experimental Plugin

January 6th, 2008

I’ve started up two longterm projects at the same time (one is top secret linkbait stuff, the other just top secret 😉 ), so I don’t have much time/ideas for new posts at the moment. Irrespective of that, there is one plugin that I have been working on and testing for a while – my […]

Free DAA to ISO Converter GUI

December 27th, 2007

This is a simple graphical user interface for the DAA to ISO converter. The original converter tool requires that you know how to use command-line utilities – and many users do not. That is why I made a simple Windows interface for it. You can download it (and the converter) here.

Raw HTML Plugin for WordPress

December 13th, 2007

Recently I needed to put some style definitions and a JavaScript function in a post on another blog that I have. I wasted several hours trying to do this, because WordPress insisted on putting backslashes in front of my apostrophes, inserting superfluous <p> or <br /> tags in place of newlines, and generally breaking my HTML in various horrible ways.

In the end I decided to just go and write a plugin that would let me put any code or script in my posts and display it to the visitor unmodified.

Search The Current Site – A Firefox Extension

December 1st, 2007

There are lots of search engine plugins for Firefox, and it’s easy to make a simple search plugin for your own site. That’s why it came as a bit of a surprise that I couldn’t find any search engine plugins for searching the currently open site. So I created one. Download it here.

NEAT Invaders Game

October 26th, 2006

This is a proof-of-concept Invaders-style game where the invaders are controlled by neural networks and each new wave is evolved by genetic algorithms. This is made possible by DelphiNEAT library. I’m also using the GR32 library for semi-fast 2D graphics and PNGDelphi for PNG loading. Update : Unfortunately, the Delphi NEAT site has been offline […]

wsTaskborg Taskbar Organizer

October 1st, 2006

As a result, I created wsTaskborg – a freeware utility that lets you organize your taskbar buttons by dragging them around and grouping/ungrouping them as you wish. You can read more about it and download it at http://w-shadow.com/wstaskborg/. I […]

The Living Image Project

September 20th, 2006

It’s finished! 🙂 This is a social experiment, an artificial intelligence project, an online digital art generator and many other things. It’s a place where digital images are generated based on the collective opinion of all visitors. It’s similar to the GeneticArt demo by Mattias Fagerlund, except images are placed online and can be rated […]

Wikipedia search utility

September 7th, 2006

This is another idea I have had for a while. I use Wikipedia nearly every day, and every time I encounter an unknown word or concept, it’s the first place to look for it. So I thought it would be more comfortable if I could just select the text to be searched for, press some […]

wsCryptoPad text editor

September 2nd, 2006

This is more of a proof-of-concept that I created, but still pretty neat – it’s a text editor that stores the text in it’s own exe-file, compresses that text and optionally encrypts it. And it’s just 93 KB in size and doesn’t require installation! Useful for… storing passwords, maybe 🙂 Source code is available, so […]

wsKillHung application

August 29th, 2006

If you are a programmer you have probably encountered a situation when the program you are debugging suddenly enters an infinite loop or somesuch and starts consuming 100% CPU resources. Sure, you can press Ctrl-Alt-Delete and kill it from Task Manager, but it takes ages because everything is slooow and sometimes you’d just rather hit […]
