By now most of the software I developed at UWA has been retired. The web interface to the UCC Drink Machine still remains.

While I was at the university, I also contributed to various free software projects, notably bringing PoPToP (pptp daemon for Linux) to maturity, implementing delay pools (originally "delay hack") code in squid, selective relay debugging in WINE, patches for heaps of projects and a variety of small packages found elsewhere on this site.

Unfortunately I am currently generally unable to contribute to free software projects due to time constraints, but I hope I will be able to contribute again sometime in the future.
