more modern versions as time goes on. Up next is our popular
educational title, Creepin' Critter Math.

About Malware Warnings from Windows:
we are currently unable to digitally "sign" our Windows desktop applications.
That means upon opening them for the first time on your computer you
may see a warning that the app is from an unknown publisher
and could be dangerous! However, if you downloaded one of our apps from
this site you can be confident that you know the publisher and that it
is NOT dangerous. To
override the warning on Windows you should see a link that offers more
information. Clicking that link should display an option to open the
app. You should also not have to repeat that action again. Of course, do not override the warning for our apps that you downloaded from other sites that you are not as sure about!
The following are catagories of the software which I have authored.
Titles are downloadable from a link at the end of their description.

I'd like to hear
what you think of this site or my software. Please send e-mail to with
indivdual applications for their system requirements.
License fee payment can only be made via PayPal
at the moment. Use "Send & request" followed by "Pay for goods or
services." Payment should be sent to the Sunspot e-mail adddress
shown above. Enter the license fee amount ($30 for Patent Grabber or $15 for ChecksQuick),
and write the name of the app for which you wish to purchase a license
in the optional text field. Once I receive notice of payment, I will
send you the license code via e-mail.
I will be exploring other options to replace the Kagi Store which closed without warning as of July 31.

Orange Book Companion®
I created the Orange Book Companion line of drug
information products and services as a way to make it easier to
research the patents and exclusivity of FDA-approved drugs. The Orange Book Companion is now
marketed by the Food and Drug Law
Institute in Washington, DC. They offer both online and CD-ROM
subscriptions at reasonable prices. Anyone interested in archival
copies of the Orange Book Companion
two-volume book set from 2003 and 2004
should request availability and pricing information from FDLI. I intend to bring
back the Orange Book Companion
two-volume book set in the future.
