From this web site you can download four freeware programs for your PC, namely Know The Notes, TuneFinder for Windows, VuChord and Simple Subtitle Synchroniser.
Know The Notes is a program to practise keyboard orientation at a piano, organ or electronic keyboard. You play a MIDI file, then watch the onscreen
virtual keyboard 'play' the notes while you attempt to play along. Know The Notes will work on XP with at least Service Pack 2, on Vista with Service Pack 1 and on Windows 7.
TuneFinder for Windows is an application that allows you to identify a melody from up to ten notes. You "play" the notes with the mouse on a virtual keyboard on your computer monitor, click a button, and then the program searches its database for a matching melody. TuneFinder will work on Windows 98 Second Edition, Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7.
VuChord is my most recent application written in 2013 to depict a chord in simplified music notation, then play the chord, modify its notes and learn to identify and recognise that particular chord. It will run on Windows XP with at least Service Pack 2, on Vista with Service Pack 2 and on Windows 7.
Simple Subtitle Synchroniser is an application that allows you to synchronise the subtitles in a SRT (.srt) file with a movie. While there are many other subtitle editors, I wanted a really simple one without
bells and whistles. It does all I need, and maybe it will be all you need, too. Simple Subtitle Synchroniser will work on XP with at least Service Pack 2, on Vista with Service Pack 1 and on Windows 7.
In addition to the software programs you can read about how to interface a Parallax Basic Stamp 2 to a Visual Basic 6 program, see how to do your own ‘perfect binding’ of books, how to repair an Addis Superdry mop, and how to create a letterbox alert that sounds a reminder that the post has arrived.
