Sanebox is a simple, open-source jQuery-based lightbox. I wrote it for use on my portfolio and blog, but decided it could be useful enough for someone else. You can click on any of the images below to try it out.

Risk Auto Roller

I wrote this simple simulator as a handy way to automate long battles in the board game Risk. Later in the game, battles between countries can take quite a while because you have to repeatedly compare many dice rolls. This web app automates that process. I put it online so I can use it wherever I am.

You can try it out, right now, if you like:

Wheel of Fortune Letter Frequency Analyser

I wrote this out of simple curiosity. I wanted to see if there was a pattern to the final puzzles on the TV game show Wheel of Fortune. The highest-scoring contestant from regular play gets to play a bonus round wherein they pick a few consonants and a vowel, then get ten seconds to guess the word. I wanted to see if the producers of the show were compensating for the distribution of letters in the English, and if not what letters would be advantageous to pick.

Directory Differentiator

This is a Python script I wrote to parse through two similar directories in parallel, and print all of the differences to a specified text file. It lists files and directories unique to either of the two given directories. I used it to compare the differences between the music collection on my file server and the music that I copied to my MP3 player.
