Ollie Terrance

It's not much, but it's home.

Well, you found me. Congratulations. Was it worth it?

Tucked away in this little corner of the web is a hobbyist developer with a number of small and random projects of his own devising. When not at home, you may also find him hacking away at code, recording the tedious details of life, reviewing the front page of the internet, or fighting for control of the world.

Knick-knacks and thing-me-bobs

Here’s some of the more random things I’ve been coding lately.

An assortment of published tomfoolery

Of course, there’s plenty more where that came from.

I’ve taught myself various languages over the years – I tend to prefer working with PHP, Python and Java, though I’m also accustomed to C, C++, Lua, ML, shell scripting and more.

DoX (as in do <X>, where X is a task, but also pronounceable like “docks”) is a task management platform that stores tasks human-readable in a tasks.txt file. It aims to be an simple but powerful framework, providing the tools to manage tasks with descriptions, priorities, due dates, automatic repeat and tags, all as an API that can be used elsewhere.

Relics from an age gone by

These are some of the older projects, either outdated or redundant.

Calendar Sync for Astrid broken

Astrid was a great to-do list app, but one lacking feature is its calendar support. You could export single events from Astrid to Google Calendar, but that won’t synchronize any further changes. This tool will generate you an iCal format calendar with all your Astrid tasks that have a due date/time. Unfortunately, Astrid is no more (kinda?), so this tool won’t really do anything any more.


Mario Worker levels

I used to host a website for users to share creations made in Mario Worker, a platform for creating custom Super Mario Bros. levels and scenarios. Although I no longer take submissions, all previous files are still available for download.


Messenger Plus! scripts broken

Back before Yuna Software took over, Messenger Plus! Live was a great add-on for Windows Live Messenger, providing a number of features, but also a scripting platform for keen developers. I made quite a few add-ons over its life, of which the JScript code for them is available here (along with the packaged script pack files, although they are unlikely to work on newer versions of Plus!).

PowerPoint games

PowerPoint may be designed for presentations, but that didn’t stop people trying to make something more exciting. There’s plenty of inspiration over at PowerPoint Heaven, so I set forth to bend PowerPoint’s capabilities into a few simple games.
