My name is Mark Ritter. Back in the 1990s, and still today, I went by 'mritter'. During high school and college I wrote a collection of utilities I called "Swiss Army Knife Utilities". These small but useful programs were my way of teaching myself C and good coding practices.
As with many of us, when the Amiga "died" we had to move on to Windows. So I sold my Amiga system, books, disks, everything. Then I bought my first Windows computer.
But before I did that, I uploaded the latest versions of my programs and the source code to Aminet. I wanted people to learn from my source code. I spent 6 years programming on my Amigas. Loved every minute of it.
I uploaded the programs and source code to Aminet on June 6, 1996.
Now, 17 years later, I have started to program again in C for Windows. But, all I can think about is my Amiga programming days. So I started to Google my programs. I found most of them on Aminet still. But I can not find any of my source code. This is where I need your help.
I am hoping someone out there has a copy of my source code, or knows of a site that has it still as a download. Google is not much help. Aminet doesn't have the source code, just my programs.
I am pleading for help. I really want to find my source code so I can get started programming for the Amiga again. And take that knowledge and apply towards my Windows C programming.
This means the world to me!
Here is a list of my programs:
Universal Translator 1.8
Version Handler 1.1
Screen Mug Shot 1.1
Sound Player 1.2
Printer Spooler 1.3
Icon Copier 1.1
Monitor II 1.0
Intuitive DMS 1.6
Shell Menus 3.0
Tool Type Editor 1.4
Audible Illusions 1.3
Mega Conundrum 1.0
On Aminet, do a search for 'SAKU-V' or 'Mark Ritter' or 'mritter'.
Maybe you have used some of these utilities back in the day. They made on to Fred Fish disks, several magazines with disks, etc. I hope you found them useful.
Please reply here or contact me directly if you have or know of any of the source code archives for my programs.
Thank you from the bottom on my Commodore heart!
