I love computer programming.

I started in the late '70s on Texas Instruments programmable calculators TI-57 and TI-59. In the '80s I moved first to the DAI personal computer, then to Sinclair QL and finally to the IBM PC family (or its clones).

Computer programming has been my job for a short period of my career, but that ended around 1985. Nevertheless, I actually never stopped programming for my own pleasure and benefit.

I have used many languages, but my heart is with Pascal. I've been using Turbo Pascal for a long time, then its successor Delphi, and finally in 2014 I moved to free pascal and Lazarus.

Here you can find the projects of mine that I think are worth to be published and shared.

They are really 100% free: no limitations, no time-outs, no nags, no ad-ware, no banner ads and no spy-ware. They can be freely used and distributed provided that neither code nor documentation are altered in any way.
