It’s good to be king. Wait, maybe. I think maybe I’m just like a little bizarre little person who walks back and forth. Whatever, you know, but… Terry A. Davis
A collection of public projects, experiments and fun stuff I’ve worked on (or contributed to) during the past few years.
Cupcakes is a game where you must click on a sequence of 3 or more cupcakes while progressing through the levels.
There is no set goal, game is played on an infinite-round basis and there is a server component planned. The focus of the game is to manufacture and trade resources in order to raise the level of your city.
Move the snake using W A S D keys and eat all the food. Game ends when the snake eats its own tail.
Sapper’s objective is to discover all the mines without clicking and triggering them; right click to place flags that can help you in tracking the mines.
A list of my personal software projects, if it can be downloaded as a zip archive, it’s in this section.
Koumori 蝙蝠 is a lightweight yet powerful web browser which runs just as well on little embedded computers named for delicious pastries as it does on beefy machines with a core temperature exceeding that of planet earth. And it looks good doing that, too. Oh, and of course it’s free software. Koumori is a fork of Midori 9.0 with additional features, mainly because the original Midori is dead (website doesn’t exist, the name has been taken by the Astian Foundation and used for a DuckDuckGo web browser fork).
ProteinMusic is a Java program converting DNA sequences into music. The original idea for this project came from Ross D. King at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth and Colin G. Angus from the Shamen. They developed a program written in C on an Apple Mac together with a MIDI connection to a synthesizer in 1996.
Hoshi 星 is an custom hobby operating system for the
x86_64 platform. It’s not Linux but it is POSIX-compliant and runs on a custom kernel named Yukiko 幸子. It is written from scratch in C, including the kernel, bootloader, standard library, GUI library and all major components. Hoshi development started in 2015 and I am not looking for contributors.
Some maps I made for various video games.
Small library that can generate a world based on elevation and moisture, complete with terrain features and exports the SVG image and the JSON world data object.
Portscan is a simple port scanner for random IPs or specified IP ranges. Logs the open ports to a separate text file.
Tizen Development Kit is a collection of scripts that transform your Samsung RD-PQ development device into a personal home development server. Since the device should be running Tizen 2.3.1, you have a powerful Linux kernel available so the scripts just remove the unneeded cruft from the packages while installing others that you will need.
Sometimes you need a simple tool to visually show the difference between two images and a basic jQuery plugin is quite suited for that (if you can stomach ~89KB just for jQuery, ~30KB if you gzip it but you probably already have it on your website).
Small library that parses and retrieves information from WannaCry-encrypted files. It’s not decrypting the files, unless you have the private key.
A minimal jQuery plugin that enables your application or website to display beautiful yet simple notifications.
The theme of this website, for Hugo, based on the Even theme by olOwOlo (forked in 2017 so it should be quite different from the latest Even version).
Some online tools (written by me) that work by processing data in your browser, nothing gets uploaded to a remote server.
Click a country on the world map and a random song from an artist of that country will play; use the audio controls to start/pause/stop the music.
This is a simple tool to import RiseupVPN to OpenVPN profiles. I have a bigger article written, dealing with this “problem”, and using that Python3 tool is recommended, but in case you don’t want to do that, you can use this utility.
This tool works by bruteforcing Imgur IDs so obviously, the outcome is random. Be warned! You might get porn images, you might get gore, you might get shit you really don’t want to see. But 9/10 times it’s just random and fun stuff.
Simple distraction-free web-based text editor.
Color conversion tool from/to various color models. Start by selecting the input format by clicking on one of the tabs. You can preview the selected color and view it in various formats.
Uses data from covidbevis.se to provide a centralized public key search for the Covid 19 apps. Select a country (or enter a key id) and the tool will print out all the public (not private, doh) keys from that specific country (or extra information about the specific key id).
This tool decodes the information contained in a Covid-19 GreenPass. A full description of all GreenPass data is available in Technical Specifications for EU Digital COVID Certificates, version 1.3.0, on the eHealth Network. If you don’t want to use a real QR code, you can test it with the images from the official test repo. IT DOES NOT validate or generate new certificates. IT DOES NOT upload your data anywhere, all the processing is done locally in your browser.
Each Nostr account is based on a public/private key pair. A simple way to think about this is that your public key is your username and your private key is your password, with one major caveat. Unlike a password, your private key cannot be reset if lost. The public key is generally presented as a string with the prefix npub1 and the private key with the prefix nsec1. Make sure you store you private key somewhere safe, like a password manager. This tool converts Nostr public/secret keys to hex format, in your browser, nothing gets uploaded anywhere.
Based on the October 2021 Twitch leak, see how much your favorite streamers made from Twitch subscriptions between August 2019 and September 2021.

Extensive documentation, drivers, tips on Nokia’s Booklet 3G premium netbook.
Between 1992 and 1994 the Romanian company ICE Felix manufactured the HC 2000 microcomputer that came with a built-in floppy disk drive and there was a version with a built-in tape recorder. I managed to snatch one from a thrift shop, in my travels.
The Nokia N900 is a smartphone made by Nokia. It supersedes the Nokia N810. Its default operating system, Maemo 5, is a Linux-based OS originally developed for the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet. It is the first Nokia device based upon the Texas Instruments OMAP3 microprocessor with the ARM Cortex-A8 core. Unlike the three Nokia Internet tablets preceding it, the Nokia N900 is the first Maemo device to include phone functionality (quad-band GSM and 3G UMTS/HSDPA).
A terrarium is a tightly closed, clear glass or plastic container filled with small plants. It also has come to mean an open, transparent container for growing and displaying plants. Terrariums are most useful for small plants that do not adapt well to normal home atmospheres.

Some blocklists I’m using on a pi-hole, free for use.
I am mirroring some external stuff here (obviously not written by me) for fear of them vanishing into the nothingness.
A collection of 88x31 button images from the good times (1990-2000), I really can’t remember the source.
The legendary newsgroup hierarchy alt.cyberpunk has been hibernating for a few years now, but that is no reason why this FAQ should not be useful. Usenet itself is rather dormant and not all ISPs provide access. Google Groups, formerly Dejanews, provide web access to the alt.cyberpunk hierarchy. So here it is, dusting off the info dump and readying it for a world that is like the 1980’s all over again. This means much of the content is radically reorganised.
Building instructions (and many more) for Windows Server 2003 based on the 4chan leaked code.
“A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace” is a widely distributed early paper on the applicability (or lack thereof) of government on the rapidly growing Internet. Commissioned for the pioneering Internet project 24 Hours in Cyberspace, it was written by John Perry Barlow, a founder of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and published online on February 8, 1996, from Davos, Switzerland. It was written primarily in response to the passing into law of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 in the United States.
The Conscience of a Hacker (also known as The Hacker Manifesto) is a small essay written January 8, 1986 by a computer security hacker who went by the handle (or pseudonym) of The Mentor (born Loyd Blankenship), who belonged to the 2nd generation of hacker group Legion of Doom.
A Cyberpunk Manifesto (1997) also entered the cyberpunk consciousness in the wake of John Perry Barlow’s A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace (1996), only reinforcing the importance of cyber-rights and the need to fight for them.
A cypherpunk is any individual advocating widespread use of strong cryptography and privacy-enhancing technologies as a route to social and political change. Originally communicating through the Cypherpunks electronic mailing list, informal groups aimed to achieve privacy and security through proactive use of cryptography. Cypherpunks have been engaged in an active movement since at least the late 1980s.
Although the hero of every age of light is different, every dark age is ushered in by the same beast - a transient divinity that seeks only conflict - The Leveler. And so Tireces returned as Moagim to end the Age of Reason - and Connacht, the great hero of the Wind Age, returned as Balor to lay waste to the greatest empire the world had ever known.

Its development was an extremely complex, time-consuming and unusual undertaking for one person. During his final years, he amassed an online following and regularly posted video blogs to social media. He often referred to himself as “the smartest programmer that’s ever lived”.
Industrial Society and Its Future, widely called the Unabomber Manifesto, is a 35,000-word essay by Theodore John Kaczynski, published in 1995. The essay contends that the Industrial Revolution began a harmful process of technology destroying nature, while forcing humans to adapt to machines, and creating a sociopolitical order that suppresses human freedom and potential.
