Hi! I’m Doctor Beet. Welcome to my site!
On these pages, as well as some useless waffle about me, you’ll find information on my main areas of interest: speech technology and photography. There’re also descriptions of a couple of shareware programs which I’ve written:
One is a quick and easy-to-use file encryption and compression program, “Crippin”, which I wrote for Microsoft’s old Pocket PC / Windows Mobile platforms. I’ve included links to it and to my favourite Pocket PC freeware even though nobody uses those devices any more.
The other is an audio enhancer to remove clicks, pops, tape hiss and/or surface noise from old audio recordings (whether on disc or tape). It’s called “Mono-a-Mono”, and I’ve included links to it and some classic desktop PC freeware.
Unfortunately I’ve been somewhat less-than-conscientious in keeping this site up-to-date in recent years, and now it’s starting to show its age. A lot of the information isn’t really topical any more, and many of the links are well-and-truly broken. Nonetheless, I’ve kept it available via two hosting providers, Tripod and x10, and I do still publish occasional updates. If you want to suggest any changes just send me an email.
Finally, a few tips for navigating the site:
