Hello and welcome!

This website is run by Norman Walsh to publish the software and resources he maintains. Enjoy your stay. If you're interested in the stuff here, you may also be interested in norm's weblog, norman.walsh.name. Or not. Only you can decide.

You can also find norm on Twitter, Google+, Flickr (but see also his own site), GitHub, and probably a dozen other places too.

And now, for your amusement:
