I'm Simon Haynes.
Welcome to
Spacejock Software

On this site you'll find my free software including favourites like yWriter, yBook, FCharts and more.

Are you looking for a freelance programmer? I occasionally take on additional projects, conversions, etc.

I'm also an author, with five sf comedy novels in print (details, Kindle) and a junior science fiction series for ages 8+ (details, Kindle).

I think they call that multitasking. I call it a lot of work.

Why Free?

Australian Shareholders' Association
The Australian Shareholders' Association (ASA) was established as a not-for-profit organisation in 1960 to protect and advance the interests of investors.
The ASA has been successful in raising the standard of corporate governance in Australian companies. The Association continues to press for improvements in transparency and accountability in relation to company performance, executive remuneration, treatment of minority shareholders, risk management and dividend policy.
Contrarian Investing Association
The Contrarian Investing Association looks for strongly financed, growing companies that are undervalued by the market for the wrong reasons, believing that the market will come to appreciate their true value over time. This investing approach can also be described as Contrarian, since such stocks are purchased when most investors believe that they are unattractive.

TopShare is a new portfolio management program, specifically designed to help private investors who have a portfolio of Australian shares. TopShare Portfolio Manager is primarily designed for two types of investors: those whose focus is building and managing a long-term, income-producing portfolio, who will value its ability to track portfolio performance, simplify taxation reporting and record transactions; and active traders, who will find its ability to track purchases and sales, including the disposal of parcels by multiple sales on separate occasions, greatly simplifies their taxation record keeping.
