As well as the less frivolous Flash things I make, I have also made some more useful, serious things.
I have done some monkeying around with maps and postcodes, although the only worthwhile one is Post2Tiny – it takes a UK postcode and produces a TinyURL link to a map of the local area. I’ve also created a Greasemonkey extension that automatically converts postcodes into Google Maps links – you can download it here.
Flash RSS reader
I’ve written a Flash RSS reader as an experiment, but it’s not very user-friendly, what with all the scary slidingness going on.
Eternity was my undergraduate 3rd year research project. Eternity was a network conceived by Ross Anderson, its purpose to store data on a distributed network such that the data would always be accessible. Even if parts of the networked got cut off or impounded by the authorities, the data would still survive. To offset the risk of getting the NSA on your case, Anderson proposed a payment system linked to storage.
I designed and implemented such a network in Java, and on a small scale it worked, sort of, and I did some very basic analysis and testing on its durability. You can find more about it in my BA dissertation (PDF, 205k), which got me my best mark in my BA finals. If you want to know more then drop me a line.
When working at CARET in Cambridge, I was one of the software developers for the Brainteasers And Puzzles and rEvolution Aspirations-Raising projects, creating the Flash games and the website for each.
When I was young and gave a shit, I wrote a not-very-good 5k entry called Socialism in 5120 Bytes – it’s amusing in its own way, I suppose.
