- Perforce plugin for IntelliJ Community Edition
- Petronia, A Python Tiling Window Manager, for Windows.
- Book Publishing – I’ve formatted, created covers, and released for publication three books.

- On Sourceforge
- On PikaCode
Put Out to Pasture
- A SQL migration and code generation tool
- A collaboration Riffs entry and playback web site.
- SQL Spelunk – a code coverage tool for SQL. I have a lot of blog entries on this one. The source code release is pending approval with my day job.
- Markov Chain Garfield using a voting system to generate the chains.
- The Bloody Nipple Saga – my screen cap web comic.
- How to Make Comics Using GIMP – specifically focused on word balloons.
- Lightning Made of Owls – I made a bunch of comics for this, but I have put it on hold for the moment. I really need to get back to this at some point.
- The Ulangar – It’s an abandoned project, but I still haven’t finished publishing it on the web. It’s only up to Book III, when there’s still Book IV, the start of Book V, and the notes for the test of the text.
- unarq – project to have a single tool be able to unarchive / uncompress all the really obscure file types out there. It’s on indefinite hold.
- The El Popo Build System – an attempt at making an efficient build tool. I put it on hold when I started investigating Gradle, which turned out to be very close in the underlying architecture, but it has some big limitations in how it was actually implemented. Indefinite hold.
- The Java 4k Game Launcher.
- Java 4k Games. The Java 4k game contests are over.
- Antlion – an Ant build tool plugin that was intended to be a nice 3rd party management and large project handler. However, Ivy took off and made this project obsolete.
- GroboUtils – a collection of various Java projects, housed under one confused roof.
- Probably best “known” for the code coverage tool that became obsolete with JDK 1.5 due to the use of the underlying class bytecode library. Updating the tool would have required a major rewrite, and the availability of other coverage tools at the time lessened the need for me to continue this project.
- Home of the JUnit extensions, referenced by the Dr. Dobbs article. This hasn’t been updated to reflect the new-style test classes introduced in JUnit 4.
- There were a bunch of other utility classes that became obsolete by later versions of the JDK, that included similar behavior in new classes.
- I now use it to as a backup for the source code to some of my experimental, personal projects.
- Inform Wares – a collection of Inform (z-machine, ala Zork) language tools and packages I’ve written over the years. It was intended to be a warehouse for all the different inform source that other people have written, but it ended up that I wasn’t very good at getting people to use it.
- A Short History of Nearly Everything (Bill Bryson)
- Many others that I still need to compile.
