Projects, tools & toys

— Last updated on Aug 5, 2013

This page hosts a slowly growing collection of projects, tools and toys I’ve created over the years.

Sundial

Sundial is a telephone number to timezone conversion tool. Give it a telephone number (in any old format) and it’ll tell you the timezone to which the number corresponds. Very handy when you need to call another country or state and you don’t know what the local time is.

Sundial is available under the MIT licence and you can fork the source code on Github.

Fistbump

We’re all seen the classic “LOVE / HATE” tattoos where each letter is tattooed onto a different knuckle. In 2010 I saw a tweet from Twitter comedian and voiceover performer Scott Fletcher joking about how awesome a random knuckle tattoo generator would be.

It’s a simple idea: pick two random four letter words, and tattoo them onto a pair of fists. Hilarity is bound to ensue, so I built one. Now you can generate a random knuckle tattoo of your very own.

Sundial is available under the MIT licence and you can fork the source code on Github.
