wtth is a program that connects to Humans vs. Zombies.org, checks for new zombies, and reports them to Twitter. I run this from a cron when there is a Humans vs. Zombies game in progress on campus.


jgit-describe is an Ant task that emulates git-describe using only Java code(doesn't require git or native code). The commit description is saved into a property for whatever use. I've been using it to name jar files.


I had to make a lot of automata in JFlap for class, but the professor wanted everything turned in on paper and JFlap is a terrible program for layout and display. This program converts JFlap finite automata, push down automata, and Turing machines into Graphviz files.

Usage: jff2dot.rb <jflap.jff> > <graphviz.dot> converts jflap.jff into graphviz.dot.

Java Enemy Territory Launcher


This program connects to a Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory(RTCW: ET, Enemy Territory, or just ET) server and shows information about the game currently in session.

In highschool I took a robotics class and at the end of the prepared material the teacher assigned some extra credit projects. My project was to keep some block holders populated with blocks. The project couldn't be completed using the standard control software, so I wrote a Java program that uses JNI and some Windows API calls to control the robotics program.

User Bar Maker


This program makes those little bars like the ones on Userbars.org.



This library sends Growl(or Mumbles) notifications by implementing the NetGrowl protocol as seen here. Unlike the official Java bindings, NetGrowl.jar can be run on Windows and Linux computers.

The source code is under a slightly modified BSD license and is available inside the jar file.


A Java Hunt the Wumpus port for cell phones. This works for me on my phone. I had to implement my own keypad input system so it might be funky on phones that don't have the standard cellphone layout.

I also made a Hunt the Wumpus clone in Ruby.


A Mac OS X port of the Neko program written in Objective-C. You can run Oneko on Mac OS X but the cat doesn't appear in front of Mac OS applications, so I ported it to Cocoa. My version does not change the mouse cursor or support different themes. This is based off the public domain Oneko code.

This program does not show up in the dock. To close it, you either need to open the terminal and type “killall Neko” or open the Activity Monitor and quit Neko.


Mac OS X doesn't come with a simple recording program, so I made one. This program records AAC audio into a file named “blah timestamp.m4a” where “blah” is the text typed into the destination box. This program listens for all key-presses(even ones made in other applications) and toggles its recording when the user presses the “Help” key on some Apple keyboards. I set this up for recording simultaneously along with another application.
