Use the Source, Luke

[reading: Susanna Clarke, "The Ladies of Grace Adieu"]

Bit of tidying up today—I added the source code for various of my trivial bits of code to the website

plus I added a link to my thesis (Homoclinic Bifurcations in Partial Differential Equations (PDF)) and put my beginner's guide to linkers under the GFDL. Not that I expect anyone to have much use for any of it, but it's there for the Magick of Google to find, just in case.

Something I didn't know until I looked it up just now...

The "alternative HTML" inside an APPLET tag is only displayed if the user agent doesn't understand the tag. If Java is disabled in browser preferences - probably a far more common case these days - nothing shows up at all; the ALT attribute is used in this situation.

Which I presume implies all of these old applets do the wrong thing...

Fixed.
