Geoff Phillips' Home Page
This is an effort to put a new home page up which represents current interests.
I am a software engineer, first worked for John Laings
(Woolworths if you want to go really far back!) was once a games programmer for
the Oric and others, and who then worked for MSU. I put this here in case you've
googled me, and of course there's quite a few of us with this name... I am none
of the others!
Don't you hate the words "Site under construction"? Well I won't put that here then... but it kind of is. You can find me on Facebook, but I'm not going to give you a link, you'll know who I am If you know me already.
I'll start with the easy things:
I'm selling some programs I've written - audio and broadcast tools.
Experience has told me that doing things as shareware is useless. A thousand people download things you slave over, and you get back nothing, or next to nothing. Instead, I offer everything at reasonable prices, and you get back a customised program registered to your name by email (link to a file)
More to come! If you see something listed below that is not detailed on this page, just ask.
Email is ggeffers a.t. btclick.com - to avoid spam, the @ is replaced with a.t.
Audio & Broadcast Tools page -
Audio Wav Trimmer (Instant save feature!),
Vinyl track splitter-recorder with click removal,
Addawav, join wav's together into single wav.
Recording Levels tool.
Packet tester. Test for packet loss with simple to use program run on two pc's.
Repackager - video broadcast across the world over the internet with uniquely robust error correction method Details Here (monthly license agreement from £1000 pm)
Studio Events prompter
Studio Teleprompter, simply uses text file, show output on monitor, reversed possible, button stop/start possible.
PID Killer. For MPEG2 TS files. Remove packets with certain PIDs (Null them) or swap PIDs to new PIDs- useful for video content that has Video and Audio PIDs that are wrong. Will also AES encrypt and decrypt files with a given password (the main packet content is encrypted, video streams could be AES decrypted live if you have the technology!)

Schedder - Schedule series of tasks on daily basis with complex command lines and parameters that be quickly substituted in. Example use, web streaming at fixed times.
Here's a link to a fairly well developed Grange Hill site with pictures, and my fan fiction. This is also work in progress.. but it's a long haul.
Here's My Oric Book, some of my programs, which by now are somewhat of a legacy item, but still might be of interest. I might also put here a blog and some non-grange hill short stories.
Here's some Oric stuff, including artwork from games, Oric Owner Magazine and anything else I have.
Anything here is copyright myself (G M Phillips), because of spam, you'll have to join my email together from these component parts: g g e f f e r s on the left hand side of the @ and on the right hand side btclick.com - you can email me if there's something I've taken off that you need (quake tools etc).
