Latest news and updates


May 2011

  • In May last year my dear wife Shanti passed away. Thanks to her foresight, I've been able to retire from writing shareware and concentrate on looking after our daughter Janaki. I plan to continue writing software in my spare time, but it's likely to be free and cross-platform (see Golly).

July 2006

  • The last year has been a lot of fun. Apple's decision to move to Intel was the final spur that persuaded me to dump my old development system (p1 Modula-2 under MPW) and re-tool. I decided I wanted to use open source tools as much as possible, and to write software for all the major platforms. So for the last year I've been delving into the mysteries of C++, gcc, Makefiles, CVS, wxWidgets, Python, etc. I've been learning all this stuff by helping to write Golly.

    I also lashed out and bought myself a MacBook Pro. An Intel Mac with Parallels Desktop is a fantastic environment for cross-platform development. In a few seconds I can switch from Mac OS X to Windows XP to Debian Linux. It's just so nice to be able to build, run and test different versions of a cross-platform app all on the one machine.
