LJ Locker

A friend of mine wanted to lock all of the public entries of her LJ, but not having a paid account, she couldn't use the built-in tools. As a result, I wrote a tool that will friend lock all public entries in a Livejournal (or, with a small bit of work, any other journal supporting the LJ API), but not touch any private or existing friend-locked posts. There's no GUI for it, and it takes the username and password from the controlling terminal.

Requires Python.

Zombie infection simulator

After seeing Kevan's Zombie infection simulator, I decided to make my own. To balance the odds, I added a way for humans to fight back, arming themselves with randomly distributed chainsaws. Now the humans can sometimes, but not always, win.

LJ Friend Filter

A friend of mine wanted to view filtered set of posts by certain Friends, based on what tags they placed on the post. Rather than wait for Six Apart to implement something like that, I coded up a work-around, using each journal's RSS feed. It's not perfect---you can only see public posts---but it's better than nothing.

CSC Light levels

The Computer Science Club of the University of Waterloo has a webcam or two.
By monitoring the average brightness and the standard deviation of the brightness of the image, I try to determine when the CSC is open.

Weather graphs

I like compiling statistics and writing Python scripts. Here are graphs of average temperatures from the UWaterloo weather station for 2007, 2006, 2005, and 2004.


I couldn't find an IPS patcher for Linux so I wrote my own. No guarantees that it will work, but it has patched at least one ROM for me and it worked after.

The source code for LinIPS can be found at

LJ CronPost

A simple script for posting predefined events to Livejournal (or, with a bit of fiddling with the source, any other journal that supports the LJ XML RPC API) at predefined times. You can download it at

The Call of Whatever

I wrote, with my sister illustrating, a webcomic based (very) loosly on H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos. It ran from September 2001 to October 2004, and updated every Tuesday and Thursday. You can find it at
