Open source software on Github

I have migrated my private projects to GitHub

 

The main one is UNISoN a usenet reader that shows the social networks created when people reply to posts

Updated GlassAndSilverjewellery to latest Joomla!

After perhaps too long, we have updated http://glassandsilverjewellery.co.uk to the latest versions of Joomla and Virtumart.

This was the result of a successful out-sourcing mini-project to a Russian developer via Upwork.com

This reduces the security risk the site previously had, and introduces some small improvements to improve customer experience.

Enjoy!

 

Released v0.1 of Freemind search plugin

Created a search plugin to my favourite Mind-mapping tool, FreeMind which itself is open-source Java based.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/freemindsearchplugin/

The existing program had limited search facilities, only the current open map, so wrote plugin to allow search from multiple Freemind maps. It uses Apache Lucene to create an in-memory index then orders the results by a score. You can then click on a result to open that map. Can choose to search the maps you already have open, or to recursively search a directory of your choice.
