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?

Catch of the Day

yEdit2
by Spacejock Software
WinXP & above / Mono 2.4 & above


yEdit2 is a simple text editor with frequent auto-backups and a countdown word counter.

(I've not had time to write a description for this app, so I've copied & pasted my post from the NanoWrimo forums below)

Last year, like every year, I used yWriter on my PC to keep all the bits and pieces of my Nano project together, and I bashed out my daily word count on the laptop. Unlike previous years where I wrote in Word or OpenOffice, this time I used a new tool called yEdit, which has a countdown word counter. (You put in 1700 as the starting count and start hammering out the prose until you see '0') I found it easy to set it up with 500 words and then type as quick as possible until I'd done them all. Music on the headphones helped, and Nano 2007 was the easiest I've ever done.
