I Love to Invent Tools that
Automate Everyday Boring Work

People say they're surprised, how much software and projects I made. But they never heard of them or are hard to find.
So I made this place to find them all.

Cleaning Lady List (comming Winter 2020)

Do you know that airplane pilots have detailed step-by-step manual for every situation that can happen in the air? Even cases like both engines lose thrust just after the departure from the airport.

Each code base have different problems and places to improve. But in general, most of these places repeat over and again. What repeats, is a pattern and can be put in a list. A list you can check yourself for your own project.
