MapIt program to launch Google Maps

I was tired of copying an address, then opening a new tab and then going to http://maps.google.com and then pasting the address, and hitting return. So I’ve written a program that will automatically open a new browser window pointed to Google Maps at whatever text is in the clipboard. Now I just copy the address, […]

Learn You A Origami!

I’ve set up a new site called Learn You A Origami!, which features video tutorials from YouTube of how to fold several different models. I’ll be adding new models periodically.

Download PyBat 0.1.2 More details at: http://pybat.sourceforge.net UPDATE: Hi, Reddit!

DiscEx: Discover, Explore – Virtual tour web software

UPDATE 9/14/2011: UT has removed this code from their website. The software was basically a poor-man’s Google Streetview, with individual photos taken around the sculpture, rather than a panoramic in a QTVR-style viewer. Unfortunately, I don’t have the code or the images anymore. No big loss, since it was implemented as a Java Applet when […]
