Howto GTK

Software links

Over the years, i wrote a load of programs. Most of them were of the 'quick-and-dirty' kind, just to remedy a temporary 'itch'. Once in a while though, some of these utilities proved useful enough to be converted into something of which I'm not completely ashamed to show it to others.

If I could find the time to document the project, the stars align favorably, and EPEC (local energy provider) and Arnet (ISP) collaborate, there may actually be a chance the program lands on this page. Most, if not all, programs were written for Linux, operating system of preference. Most are C, though I've developed a recent weakness for Python.

As I frequently use programs by others, and if I feel the docs are lacking, I may publish quick howtos on the use, or how to avoid pitfalls. Most of these are memory aids... Of course, in that case, I do not claim any credit for the original program, and don't blame the original authors for potential errors!

Slackware packages

An eclectic collection of (mostly 64-bit) Slackware packages, mainly meant for my own use. As some of these are not available on the net, I thought they might be useful for others too.
