Projects

I do things. Sometimes they are work things, oftentimes they are not. The latter appear here. There are also various Random Acts of Sensless Scripting and Greasemonkey scripts published here.

Pretty much all of my code projects now live on Github

Storyville

Language
PHP

Hah. See below
Purpose
Story Archive
Status
Argh
Description

Storytime was a completed short-story archiving system, designed so that people could put their short stories online. It had a full user-accounts system, review system and unique content. The only reason it didn’t go online was that I wanted to add a system for multi-part stories. I went back to it about three months later to find all the code was gone. I’ve no idea what happened, it may have been moved to somewhere that wasn’t backed up, or lost in a data-corruption thing, but Storyville has gone. I’d still like to do it, and maybe someday I will…

Language:	PHP
Status:	Nope
Release:	0b

The Geekstuff review system for Geekstuff.co.uk, involving a fully developed relational database, complete and neatocool user system, ratings system, and search system.


Afphrid

Type:	Code
Language:	PHP
Status:	Hibernation (Still stuff I want to do with it, not currently coding)
Release:	2.1

The alt.fan.pratchett heroic relational & impossible database is a system for cataloging the many “relationships” of AFP, and is the illogical result of someone once asking someone else to marry them as a joke on the AFP newsgroup. The current version contains a complete internal messaging as well as email notification system, detailed user and admin sections, and neatocool graphs which take so long to render that I daren’t automate them.

It could go down in history has the first ever social relationship network (Predating Facebook by a decade) if I’d actually thought of genericising it. So it goes.


Nomical

Type:	Code
Language:	PHP/SQL
Status:	Given up
Release:	-

Nomical is a client/server based PIM system with the most completely relational database system that is practical, everything becomes related data to an entity. It was a good idea, but I don’t care enough.


K3

Type:	Code
Language:	PHP/SQL
Status:	Dead (Reencarnated as Epistula)
Release:	None.

The K3 system (Klind, Klide & Kewl) was designed as a node-based weblog and article system, incorperating the most comprehensive date-selection mechanisms on the market at the time. It was developed and ran Aquarionics.com for exactly a year from December 2001, before being dropped, redesigned and recoded as Epistula, which took the original design concepts of K3, incorperated the author’s new abilities and requirements, and generally became a lot better. Well, almost. Epistula when it closed still couldn’t do stuff K3 did, and WordPress can’t either. Plugin development may happen.


Never Stop Dreaming. (NSD)

Type:	Writing
World:	NSD
Status:	Dead.

NSD was a daily-writing project begun by Aquarion – later joined by LoneCat. It ran for about four months before Aquarion realised he wasn’t writing enough content for it, and it wasn’t fair on LoneCat. It may return some day. The system behind it (Pareidol) was a basic webcomic-style system. That may also return some day (In fact, some of the code that ran it went into Epistula wholesale). NSD is retired.


Quoth

Type:	Code
Language:	Visual Basic
Status:	Dead, Relased into the wild.
Release:	1.1.1

Quoth was a random sig generator for windows, I stopped using VB, then I stopped using Windows for news & mail. After that it went into a bit of a decline. It’s final release was my GPLing of the code, but the package is still a useful resource for quotes.
Quoth, however, is dead. It shall be developed, nevermore.
