I’ve been working on a script to calculate all twenty four moon phases and I needed some images since I was only able to find the common eight phase images. I made a series of individual high resolution PNGs with the Photoshop layered file included if anyone is interested. Download here and share!
I started playing around with pyGUI a year or two ago, which allows fast gui development on OS X, Windows, and Linux from Python. I’m really liking it. I wrote a liitle app to wake up Macs awhile back and packaged it as a standard Mac bundle. In theory the raw Python should run on […]

Luckily Editra has a really cool plug-in called Launch that can be configured to run code and display the results within the editor. The only problem is that compiling and running objective-c doesn’t work for a couple […]
Before I deleted my site I had posted some simple programs that fire a timer in order to count down the days to an event. I wrote this in both XCode and IronPython which can be downloaded with full source below. I also started writing this in VB.Net, but decided it’s so similar to the […]
If you have been here before you will notice the site is gone. To be honest, I am tired of managing a big site and I was constantly getting hacked because I’m too lazy to keep up with things. Let’s see how well WordPress can hold up to my laziness… If you’re looking for the […]
