Jason Harper's Home Page

Important notice

The permanent address of this page is http://pobox.com/~JasonHarper, and the proper addresses of all subpages should begin with this. However, these are just redirections, that point at wherever I have my pages hosted. If you intend to bookmark or publish a link to any of my pages that needs to remain valid for any length of time: please, please make sure that the link starts with pobox. That's the only form that I can make any guarantees about.

First things first: here's the obligatory picture of my cat, Tabitha.

ViewFrame is an object browsing and debugging tool for Apple's Newton® line of handheld computers. It was published for several years by Creative Digital. Now that Steve Jobs has killed the Newton, ViewFrame is no longer commercially viable, and I simply have no real interest in updating it further. For those of you who are still active in Newton programming, I am making ViewFrame available for free on an as-is basis.

About Me

If you think you might know me from somewhere, here's a brief autobiography that might help to confirm or deny that:

Contacting Me

You can write to me at JasonHarper@pobox.com. My former CompuServe addresses, JasonRandHarper or 76703,4222, are no longer valid (but I'll leave them here so that anyone who only knows me by one of those addresses can still find me via a web search).
