About Delorie Software

Delorie Software is, basically, me. Well, me and Pat. I do the technical stuff and Pat takes care of the business end of things. We deal primarily in MS-DOS software, like djgpp, but also do web, X, and other Unix software. Our work falls into a few major categories.

Freebies:
I do software engineering (or software artistry) because I enjoy it. A lot of the stuff I do is available free of charge through the network, often with sources. Of course, you don't get to pick what I work on or complain if you don't like it, but you get your money's worth.

The Software Store:
Lots of pre-packaged programs I've written. The programs themselves are usually free (and freely redistributable), but we charge for support.

Services:
This includes the world-famous WebChess server, mail archive searches, zip indexing and extraction, and other things that our server can do for you. It also includes a number of multimedia functions that we can do for you, like image scanning. We also provide a small amount of free services to some not-for-profit organizations, like the Free Software Foundation.

Contracts:
Many companies and individuals find that using my particular skills is more cost effective than doing it themselves. For those cases, specialty work can be requested on a contractual basis. Terms and conditions are negotiable, but I don't travel.

Our standard hourly fee for non-schedule items or extra work on a standard item is $150 per hour ($12.50 per five minute unit or fraction thereof).

The only Internet presence (actually, the only presence) we have is our domain, delorie.com, which includes one machine acting as a ftp, http, and mail server. We are connected to the Internet through a T1, so expect our pages to load fairly quickly. We try to make the pages look good on a wide variety of browsers (mostly by not using fancy new features).
