This is my most recent project and has seen some actual success. It creates an HTML based statistical chart for QuakeWorld servers. In fact it has earned itself a whole web page! Find out more information on the official FragLog Page.

Finally a UNIX style replacement for the DOS TYPE command! I grew tired of entering TYPE cow.txt | MORE or getting confused with my UNIX account and entering MORE cow.txt only to recieve an error...

Now simply typing M cow.txt or even DIR | M will suffice!

Have you ever been traversing the directory tree on your disk and needed to get to a sibling directory so you try this CD ../BROTHER or worse CD .. and CD BROTHER?

Well no more my friend with CDD you skip those useless three or four keystrokes and now just type CDD BROTHER and you are there!

Here is one of my favorites...how many times do you need to create a directory and then change into it? Using the duo MD NEWDIR and CD NEWDIR was to me annoying and time consuming. So I decided to merge the two into MCD and now all I need do is MCD NEWDIR and viola!
