Catch the Furball is an icebreaker board game intended for friends to play around a computer. It features a freshly-generated board for each game, an eclectic collection of cards, and beautiful pictures of Cambridge University.

It includes the editor used to create game data.
The Mobile Web Proxy is a (CGI) tool to make more Web pages available from some mobile devices (cell phone Web browsers, etc.). It employs tag cleaning and paging so that Web pages it can access have far greater chances of being rendered on devices that cannot display overly large or complex pages. It is simple, but it seems to substantially extend the portion of the Web available from devices that otherwise display messages like "413: Page cannot be displayed."
Proportional Font Terminal is a version of Ajaxterm hacked to use Web-optimized proportional fonts. This allows terminal users to have the same kind of proportional fonts that have all but displaced monospace fonts for mainstream Web use because they offer simply better usability.
SearchLog can be used as a searchable weblog. It is designed with usability in mind, and uses highlighting and easy linking between entries to give the user maximum power for minimum effort. It is much more than a weblog, however. It was designed as a knowledge management tool. It serves as a personal information management tool and portal. It is powerful and versatile enough to do several jobs well.
The Data Mine is a search engine designed to make a more useful interface available to users. It is designed around human-computer intelligent interaction considerations.

The Magic Notebook is a CGI script which allows the user to store and organize notes in as many topics as are desired. Uses include contact information, to do lists, lists of books to read, status information for different projects, a list of "things to do when thus-and-such happens", keeping track of things you need to tell people, and for the advanced user an editable quote of the day. The Magic Notebook is intended to give Webmasters a new attraction with little extra work.
The Powered Access Bible is a CGI script designed to facilitate finding verses and reading them in context, minimizing the usual mousework. It divides the screen into a search frame and a reading frame, and clicking on a search reference will load its context in the reading frame. All executable code is available under the user's choice of the Artistic, GPL, or MIT license, and the translations used are all free for non-commercial use.
