The Decision Tree Generator parses a YAML file and, if it's in the correct syntax, creates a series of questions and responses that can be displayed on a webpage. It doesn't require a login, and the tree you create is around until someone else overwrites it. [more inside]
Tabminder is a Google Chrome extension I built to intercept distracted browsing and give me occasional reminders to get back to work. When I open a distracting tab on my blacklist, Tabminder starts counting down from a preset time limit. When time's up, it prompts me to close the distracting tab or restart the timer. It's just annoying enough to keep me focused but not so strict that I can't visit MetaFilter once in a while. It works well in combination with StayFocusd to keep me from wasting my daily distraction quota. [more inside]

I'm proud to announce my first iPhone App: Gibberish Generator. This app allows you to generate pseudo-random sentences from lists of verbs, nouns, and the like. Optionally, you can enable your contacts, to allow them to be used in the random fun. The result can be tweeted or emailed to your friends. I can't imagine a more useful app than that. Perhaps I need a better imagination. [more inside]
Several months ago I linked to my first crack at writing a Pac-Man clone in HTML5. Based on mefite suggestions and my own revision plan, I've completely reworked my original code. Play as Pac-Man, Ms., or Jr., and select from several mazes. Original sound and graphics "borrowed" from MAME emulation. Works best in Chrome and Firefox. [more inside]
