Web-enabled software applications and tools

IT Manager's Corner


Just For Fun



Here are some of the popular Web-enabled software tools & applications I've written. Each of these applications can be downloaded for FREE. They are distributed under GPL Open Source copyright. These are the tools I use and have found useful. Also, in an effort to fight "code-bloat," I've made these programs and tools very efficient, resulting in their small sizes.

The stable versions have been tested on an number of platforms and have no known bugs. The beta versions have been working on a number of platforms, but they typically lack documentation. The alpha versions are working on a Linux system, but have not been thoroughly tested. If you successfully install and run an alpha or beta version on another system, let me know and I'll include your name in the credits!

Comments and suggestions are welcome; send me an email at tools@horsburgh.com.
