26978  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / How the Internet Works - radio show, parts 1 and 2 on: February 09, 2006, 04:01:54 PM

This is a radio show by Steve Gibson (the 'I' in the quotes below) and Leo Laporte
How the Internet Works, Part 2
During this 38-minute, part 2 episode of "How the Internet Works," Leo and I briefly review last week's discussion of the ICMP protocol, then discuss the operational details of the Internet's two main data-carrying protocols: UDP and TCP.

How the Internet Works, Part 1
During this 49-minute episode, Leo and I briefly discuss the 'Kama Sutra' virus that will become destructive on February 3rd. We briefly discuss PC World Magazine's recent evaluation and ranking of ten top anti-malware systems. And we begin our long-planned 'fundamental technology' series with a two-part close look at the history and detailed operation of the global Internet.

you can listen to it online.
26979  Other Software / Developer's Corner / The Portable Coroutine Library (PCL) on: February 09, 2006, 03:41:07 PM

The Portable Coroutine Library (PCL) implements the low level functionality for coroutines. For a definition of the term coroutine see The Art of Computer Programming by Donald E. Knuth. Coroutines are a very simple cooperative multitasking environment where the switch from one task to another is done explicitly by a function call. Coroutines are a lot faster than processes or threads switch, since there is no OS kernel involvement for the operation. Also coroutines require much less OS resources than processes of threads. The idea of writing this library started when I was testing Linux epoll functionality and performance. I initially started using the coro library by E. Toernig <> and I found the library very interesting. It was simple and yet powerful. The limitations of the coro library were both non portability and crashes when not used together with certain versions of gcc. So I decided to write a new library to address the problems aforementioned by also taking portable context switching ideas from the GNU Pth library. This library is easily portable on almost every Unix system and on Windows. It can use either the ucontext.h functionalities ( getcontext()/makecontest()/swapcontext() ) or the standard longjmp()/setjmp().

26984 Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: CTRL+SPACE on: February 09, 2006, 01:36:34 PM
jgpaiva just informed me on the chat channel that i totally misunderstood this post.
i must read more carefully.

ok you want to use ctrl+space instead of alt+space, and the hotkey thing wont accept it as a custom hotkey.  i will try to fix either by allowing it or add a special checkbox for it, makes sense.
26985  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Defragmentation programs doesn't co-exist that well with Norton Goback on: February 09, 2006, 01:33:58 PM
a program like goback can be a great help. i know people who swear by it.
everyone should have either something like goback or a drive imaging program.
some of us prefer to decide exactly when and how to make images, others prefer the background running no reminder needed things like goback.
highly recommend that you have one of these.

(and if you have a non-technically-advanced relative with a big hard disk goback can be the perfect solution.)
26986 Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: CTRL+SPACE on: February 09, 2006, 01:29:42 PM
anyone else having trouble with the the alt+space trigger working?
once you set it in the options it should work, but 2 things could interfere:

1) do you have another program using alt+space, or that did and you isntalled without rebooting?
2) are you maybe running farr using the old tray helper special utility ? (uncheck "use helper tray utility" in options, then exit and run farr to test).

should be fixed now i think..
i believe it was due to the security mod known as mod_evasive, which was falsely triggering protection against denial of service attacks.

[RANT] how these people get away with such clearly defective diagnostic / error handling for these security mods i'll never understand [/RANT]

another cool skrommel utility smiley

i don't know if its possible or how hard it would be, but it would be fun if the menu had a list of all configured screensave and you could start any one of them.

please remember to make a donation to skrommel to support his work, just click his green $ or the paypal button on his page.

there are some good utilities to switch between network configurations now - most helpful if you have a laptop that switches networks.  Netswitcher is one but there are others.

Allen just pointed us to a unique and really nice renamer tool (Oscar's Renamer) on this thread:

When i got there i noticed that the author of dvd-lab (powerful dvd authoring app) has a bunch of nice looking freeware:

one really caught my eye:
Oscar's Multimonitor Taskbar:
this looks like a lite version of the very nice and powerful (but not cheap) UltraMon (
