Yeah, pretty much all my code is open source. Some are PD, some are GPL. A couple have been phenomenally popular but none have been picked up when I stopped coding - and yes, I still get requests to go back to them and implement new stuff.

And really, not knowing how to program is not an excuse. It has never been a better time to learn how to code, with stackoverflow, reddit and internet forums.
I'm actually working on that at the moment - looks like I'll be helping with a new British initiative to get kids coding again, but it will unfortunately [i]not[i] be open sourced
