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++ 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: Foxamp 0.4.2 released
I have released version 0.4.2 of Foxamp. (Maybe I should name a release “1.0″ some day.) This features no new user-visible functionality, but removes the requirement for an internal Foxamp helper DLL (foxamp32.dll / foxamp64.dll) which caused problems with approval for the Mozilla add-ons site. Hopefully the new version will be available through the Mozilla site soon. Until then, you can download it right here, of course.
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.
