Current Personal Projects

Delphi Windows95 Shell Extensions and COM servers
The aim of this project is to write a Windows 95 Property Page Shell Extension using only Delphi 2.0. I have the current source available for download. I should have an article/white paper describing how it all works within the next,erm, month or so.
Digital Tachometer
My latest project is to build a Digital Tachometer using a PIC microcontroller. I'm currently rehacking the software to be fully interrupt driven. The project is based on a design in Everyday Electronics.
Racecar Datalogger
At the moment this is just a bunch of ideas...I'm hoping to build a flexible, fast and cheap datalogger for racing cars(like the one above) principally for the car below.
***Stop Press*** I now have a Motorola Coldfire SBC5206 evaluation board! Pick up the latest binary of GCC for Win95/NT on my new ColdFire development page.
Formula Ford 1600 racing car
I'm currently designing a FF1600 racing car which I hope to run in the Scottish Motor Racing Club Scottish series in the 1998 season(glup - so near yet so far!) If you're interested in finding out more then have a quick peek at the Scottish Motor Racing Web Site
