"From your position on the road of life, you . . . have many miles to go and many choices to make as you seek to return to our Heavenly Father. Along the road there are many signs that beckon.

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 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.
