Here you will find a few programs that I have written and am making available for download here. The programs here are generally free to use. Do what you like with them. Give them to your friends, your relatives, even your dog, if you’ve taught it how to use a PC.

  • Session Arbiter – manages time limits for local login sessions on workstations running Windows Vista/7/8. Essentially, it aims to reproduce on regular workstations the functionality that exists for Remote Desktop Services that allows administrators to impose time limits on different kinds of login session.
  • Slideshow – a simple program for displaying JPEG files as a slideshow. Despite being the oldest program here, it remains one of the very few slideshow programs available with special features for multi-monitor systems.
  • ThinkPad Button Customiser – a program for reconfiguring the ThinkPad button on IBM T-Series and R-Series ThinkPad computers.
  • VLC Autoplay Configuration – an online tool for generating the Windows registry entries necessary to allow VLC Media Player to handle Autoplay actions in Windows XP and above.

    Hello James,

    I have been running Slideshow at our museum for years now. I have it running 11 screens from one computer. 2 quad cards and 2 dual head Matrox cards distribute the images over the 11 monitors. I have a file of over 1100 images that cycle through randomly. It is a very impressive display and is very popular with our staff and the public. The only problem I encounter is that periodically, maybe 2 or 3 times a month, the program hangs up and has to be restarted, otherwise it is the best investment I have have made.

    Thank You
