Freeware

These are some of some past past free mini-tools I have written in my spare time.

These were written before 2003, so this is effectively an archive. For something more amazing, visit the homepage.

Due to restrictions on this server, all the files are in 7-Zip (.7z) format. If you need 7-Zip, download it here.
