Welcome to Goat 1000 - this is where you'll find some of the bits and pieces of software that I cobble together for fun. Please feel free to download them and try them out. All this stuff is freeware, no guarantee that it will do anything, etc. (though if it does fail to do anything, please let me know!)

JPEG Saver 5.24.1
Another bugfix version of JPEG Saver. This time it is for a single bug that might not affect many people, but I would prefer to get this fix out now instead of waiting until I have some more substantial stuff done - that might take a while.
Previously on JPEG Saver
The one bug fixed here is that the “Previous image” option for multi-monitor displays was not working. It was broken by the changes I made in version 5.22 that mean JPEG Saver now stores a list of images to be displayed.
This actually means that the non-primary monitor(s) can display the previous image right from the start without waiting for the primary to display something - but it wasn't working. This version should fix that, though I'm still a bit unsure of the “Alternate/Random” change mode. I think it is probably working now, but it might just have been behaving every time I tested it.
This version of SVGGraph ticks off something that has been on the to-do list since late 2019, so I'm glad to get it done. Especially because I had to learn or relearn some maths stuff to get it working.
Curved best-fit lines
I wasn't actually sure if this was a good idea or not - after all, I've already added support for curved line graphs. There is an important difference though: curved line graphs draw a curve that passes through all the points, whereas a curved best-fit line is a plot of the mathematical function that best matches the points.
Here's an example using the data from a previous graph that shows earthquake magnitudes with a curved best-fit line added in:
JPEG Saver 5.24
Here is yet another JPEG Saver release, coming out now because it has a couple of bugs fixed and a couple of useful extra features added too.
Windows are the eyes to the soul - wait, that's not right
The main new thing is this version is a command-line option. Oh, that's not very exciting, is it? Well, it's a command-line option that lets you run JPEG Saver in a fixed window that stays open until you close it, not like a screensaver at all. You will find a description and some examples on the command line options page.
