Welcome to my website

Hi! You have reached the website of Barry Cox. I am an applied mathematician who used to work at the University of Wollongong and the University of Adelaide with main interests of modelling nanoscaled phenomena.

This website's main purpose is to make available some programs and Excel spreadsheets that I have written, mainly related to chess and chess rating systems. I have also been collecting and making available Australian Chess Federation (ACF) rating lists in perpetuity.

Of more general interest, the software downloads section includes a port of the Star Trek game for the Apple ][ which I have subsequently ported to FreeBASIC, and a tiny Java-based applet which allows two people to played timed chess over a TCP/IP network.

All software is available for free on an as is basis with no implied warranty of fitness for any purpose. If you find anything useful, please leave a comment.
