Freebie Stuff

A collection of freebies that might come in handy someday, or not... Some are in PDF format, some were written for DOS, but will work under Windows, even the old OS-2. Only thing is for most you have to type instead of clicking your mouse, no brainer of course. Anyway, I wrote them for my own use, there's not a whole lot of error trapping in them so if you do something wrong you might have to restart the program as it probably won't let you correct your input. Being freeware and all, there's no support for any of them. If you happen to really like something on this list, hey, I'm human, flatter me all you want.

Added July 2015: the programs here run properly up to and including Windows XP, they won't run under Win7 or later unless....

Check out DOSBOX, it's a DOS emulator that works great under Win 7 and you can use most, if not all, of your favourite DOS software including the ones below.

Blank tab pages Print your own blank music staff, or tab (for 4, 5 or 6 string instruments) pages with or without measure markers

Stained Glass

A job cost estimating program for stained glass panels (Windows or DOS)

Inch to millimeter

A tiny program (Windows or DOS) to convert inches to millimeters. Enter the inches and/or fractions like 26 3/8 and hit enter. You can also do metric inches (yeah, really eh...) like 0.656 Don't forget the space between the whole number and the fraction and the slash if you do type in a fraction else it won't work properly.
