- I'm Dennis O'Neill, doing business as O'Neill Software. I'm its owner and sole employee.
- Although my initial background, training, and university degrees are in Architecture, I've been writing software since the early 1980s. I published Electra-Find, a text-retrieval program, in 1985. It was selected as one of the top utilities by Personal Computing Magazine in November of that year. It was followed by The Text Collector, adapted from Electra-Find. I wrote three Trail Tools books in the 1990s. Each book contained a comprehensive set of trail maps and trail profiles for parks and wilderness areas in California (Yosemite Valley, Desolation Wilderness, and Emigrant Wilderness). All pages were computer generated, using software I wrote to integrate USGS mapping data and US Forest and Park Service trail measurements.
- Over the years, I've owned an architectural firm and I periodically work as a consultant. My website, Architectural Practices, talks about how software management processes, like Scrum and Extreme Programming, can be adapted to the architectural field.
- I first published KwikText version 1.0 in 2003. Version 2.0 is an adaptation, designed to handle a much wider range of tasks.
