Welcome to owenrudge.net!
Welcome to the online home of Owen Rudge! I'm a software developer, formerly a Computer Science student at the University of St Andrews, and this is my personal site which has evolved over the years from a small site about Visual Basic to a sprawling mass of relatively random stuff. I do a lot of programming and web development in a variety of languages (these days primarily C/C++, C# and PHP, but formerly also included languages such as Visual Basic). Click here to find out more about me.
This site contains a good smattering of information on Visual Basic, the GEM GUI for DOS, my OSPlus utility kit for DOS, the fantastic game Transport Tycoon, the FreeDOS operating system, the Age of Empires game, and includes some miscellaneous utilities you can download. It also contains some personal stuff such as my blog, and a gallery of desktop screenshots, DesktopShots! Feel free to explore using the navigation bar at the top of the page. Be warned that a lot of the information hasn't been updated in some time, such as the Visual Basic section - since becoming a student, I've ended up with a lot less free time!
Is there something you would like to see on owenrudge.net? Just want to get in touch? Drop me a line!
Site news: Winamp Control Centre 1.4.2 released, and open sourced
Long time no see, I know. I’m pleased to announce that I’ve released version 1.4.2 of Winamp Control Centre, a small collection of utilities for controlling Winamp playback – useful to add as a toolbar to your taskbar, or to use from scripts, etc. I’ve also taken this opportunity to release the source code on GitHub, under the GNU GPL v2. I’m planning to release the code to some of my other utilities as and when I’m able to – whether anybody will find them useful or not is another matter. If you have any queries or if there is anything of mine you’d particularly like to see open sourced, please let me know and I’ll see what I can do!
Latest blog: Hey, I’m still alive
Just very busy, hence the lack of blog updates. Maybe one day I’ll post something more interesting here. Quite probably not for a while, though.
