One of my main interests (the one I in fact make a living with) is computer programming. I'm adept at programming in Java, C, C++, and C#. While in university, I authored a small Java applet which became very popular, and is still widely used today.

TextScroll is a simple but powerful applet for scrolling text vertically. It is not the only applet out there that does this. However, there are a few things that make it unique.

  • FREE - TextScroll costs no money for either personal or commercial use. I haven't made a dime off of TextScroll, and never will.
  • OPEN - TextScroll comes with source code, and a liberal license which encourages modification and distribution.
  • SIMPLE - TextScroll is very easy to add to your web pages, requiring as little as 2 HTML tags (an <APPLET> tag and a <PARAM> tag to specify the data source). It is completely documented and extensively tested.
Because of these reasons, TextScroll has grown to be quite popular.
