"As faithful [members] of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we have been blessed with the Holy Ghost. As we invite the Savior into our lives, the Holy Ghost will bear witness to us of the love which the Father and His Son, our Savior, have for each of us. But feeling Their love is dependent not only on our desire but upon our actions as well. And the actions we need to take are known to us: genuine prayer that is specific and humble, followed by quiet listening for the Lord's answers; regular scripture study and time to ponder what we read; and, finally, a willingness to be introspective about ourselves and to trust in the Lord's promise that He will 'make weak things become strong unto [us]' (Ether 12:27)."

UFOOAR (Uno For OpenOffice And Ruby) is a Ruby-UNO Bridge library so that Ruby scripters can also access the UNO COM-like interface in OpenOffice.org. The main support for this is that of Spreadsheets, however support for Documents, XML, and HTML pages has been requested so heavy work is being performed on those as well.

Personal Calculator

Personal Calculator is a command-line based calculator that accepts as input a mathematical equation string. The value of having it as a command-line tool is that you can edit your entry before submitting it, or automatically recall your last equation based on your terminal settings. In a DOS or Windows command-line the Up Arrow key performs the recall action.

Basic Console

Basic Console is a Java-based console application that has been developed with pluggability and extendibility in mind. It is very basic and includes information pertaining to how I developed it. As there were no readily available resources on developing a console application in Java, I feel this is a great step for beginners in the Java software development community.
