Mouser's Zone / Bug report: Easy screencast recorder
« on: May 19, 2013, 09:10 AM »
Here is some bugs I have found from this nice capturer:

1. Win7 widgets on desktop cannot be captured. If you capture region where such widgets exists, on capture none of these are visible.
2. Help -> About -> Program website --> https://www.donation.../software/Mouser/esr (page doesn't exist).

There were some other (minor) issue but right now, can't remember how it did occure so cannot report it, I'll do it later when I remember it :)

Version tested: v1.09.01

Living Room / Good blog for software developers to follow
« on: April 12, 2011, 03:49 AM »
Quite recently, discovered this very interesting blog from developers to developers, called Alt Dev Blog a Day. A lot of pretty interesting posts daily and very good hints etc for all levels of coders. Most of the topics are close to game developers but it serves nicely all who need some inspiration for their daily development process.

Screenshot - 4_15_2011 , 8_47_46 AM_thumb.png

(and yes, I follow it via rss feed, just like most of the interesting sites all over the internet).

Edit: As a bonus, got another one for you to follow: Cbloom rants. Hope you all find these useful.

UrlSnooper / URL Snooper have some competition :)
« on: November 05, 2010, 01:08 AM »

And no, it's not new and definitely not the only one, just noticed it myself... in two ways it's different to URL Snooper: It's open source and it's for linux & windows. Everything else seems to be just standard snooping thing... (what else should this kind of tool do? :)

Unfinished Requests / UNANSWERED: *nix crontab parser/visualizer
« on: September 10, 2010, 05:51 AM »
I think I'm not the only one who have been looking for decent tool to parse *nix crontab to more visually readable format (HTML could be right tool for output).

With that tool, it would be easier to track down potential problems in crontab timing.

So output could be somekind of a pseudo calendar of what jobs kick off at what times. Or something else if someone figures out more ideal way to do it..:)

Or does someone already have good solution for this kind of need?

Living Room / Good news for old windows games fans: The DirectDraw Hack
« on: September 10, 2010, 02:49 AM »
Very good friend of mine, got pissed how poorly old windows games using DirectDraw worked in modern windows and decided to do something for it...
And here is the whole story as well hacked DirectDraw driver with source code.

Hope this gives some joy to people, who have old games in their desks, collecting dust...

UrlSnooper / This one seems to tricky one... it's AAC stream but...
« on: August 30, 2010, 01:05 AM »

Can someone figure out (with or without UrlSnoopers help) what is the proper direct url for this one so it works in mediaplayers?

Where I'm working, because what I do, I'm allowed to listen radio streams freely all day long (while I'm doing other more important tasks). But there is one major problem in my point of view: I can listen only radiostreams which are using port 80. Many of those stations which I'd like to listen, are streaming to some higher port like 3276 or something similar and that kind of streams are happily blocked by our corporate firewall...

Does anyone have working setup for icecast or similar for relaying certain stations so I could listen them from relay at port 80?
I have been doing some experimenting with icecast and so far, couldn't find working way to relay, for example one of my favourite station WPRK (stream url: I know how to configure icecast for relaying but for some reason, this and several others doesn't want to be relayed..:(

It would be nice to have easy, smooth and proven-to-work template for icecast to relay various radiostreams to port I want.

Hope you understand my problem and can see some nice and easy solution for it.

Here is what I have trying to do so far, with no luck:

  37.         <adminroot>/usr/share/icecast/admin</adminroot>
  38.         <alias source="/" dest="/status.xsl"/>
  39.     </paths>

  46.     </logging>
  48.     <security>
  49.         <chroot>0</chroot>
  50.     </security>
  51. </icecast>

So, anyone with working solution?

EDIT: Also, if someone have time and interest to implement small utility (for windows) to be able to put those stations there easily to be relayed for certain port... it would be very cool.:)

Living Room / Pac-man at Google Search...

Wow, now I like this... (and other google search sites as well) have pac-man on the front page... nice idea, indeed!

Living Room / How fast is your (favourite) web browser JavaScript?
« on: September 28, 2009, 11:39 AM »
Well, it's time to find out with simple examples:

First: Nice and simple oldskool Rotate Zoomer. Should be pretty quick'n'easy. Or should it?

Second: Nice plasma effect... with default settings, runs smoothly with every browser but try to increase Pixels per x/y axis value and see how far it goes...

At the moment, there is no fps counters etc but dude who made these simple examples, promised to improve these when he have more time.:)


Living Room / How to host you Windows 7 house party... wtf?
« on: September 24, 2009, 02:13 AM »
Yes, this came just out:

And ok, I'm not living in US and such, this looks like very very very weird stuff to me...

Hell no, I'm not going to party like they do... that's for sure...

Living Room / The Greatest Internet Pioneers You Never Heard Of
« on: March 03, 2009, 11:47 PM »
Jep, internet history have alot of untold stories and this is one of them... this story tells about three fellows (and one girl) who could make a real history but ... they failed...

Whole story can be found from here:
Finnish world wide web pioneers

And yes, I know all of them personally... ;) (if they happen to read this: greetings from #42)

Living Room / Genetic programming
« on: December 09, 2008, 03:38 AM »
Recently found this one: and I was quite impressed, how cool things can be done today...

Also I saw several simulations using similar technology and they were pretty interesting too, for example this one:

(and no, this genetic programming isn't anything _new_, just found something that raised my interest to study more...:)

I have quite large mp3 collection (which contains a lot of songs ripped by various people) and noticed that some of them (not too many but still...) contains _a lot_ of silence in the end on mp3 (play length could be something like 10 minutes when actual song is about 3 minutes). I would love to see small app which detects this silence and lists files which contains xx seconds of _extra_ silence at the end of mp3 file. No need to have actual functionality to remove that silence away, just detect it and list those files after scanning to user in some nice way.

(this max length of silence which is okay, should be also configured somehow).

This utility might come handy when you have >1000 files in multiple directories and would like to easily find those which needs some manual post-processing to remove extra length from them.

Hope this explanation of "problem" makes some sense..:)

EDIT: Found my Subject to be bit confusing, fixed now.

Living Room / Old workhorse C64 breaking new barriers...
« on: November 05, 2008, 05:45 AM »
Or how do you like this one:

Here in Europe, C64 is still kicking hard!

Recently discovered MobaLiveCD (well, it ain't very new thing but can't discover everything at once... :) that allows you to run your Live-CD on Windows into an emulation window. I have tested this with several different bootable images (few different Linux Live-CD, hirens Boot-CD and even Windows 2000 install media...:) and everything seems to be working quite smoothly, even bit slowly.

MobaLiveCD in based on Qemu and is an standalone binary so it's pretty easy to put this and Live-CD image to USB-stick and go for it. It's can't be easier than this!

It lacks currently options to adjust CPU cycles and memory for virtual sessions but I have already contacted developers and they promised to look for this functionality for next versions.


MobaTek have also _very_ nice free portable X server with Unix/Cygwin utilities and a tab-based console (MobaXVT) and MobaSSH, SSH wrapper for Unix/Cygwin shell (I have never seen before this kind of nice and easy sshd for windows). Those two are highly recommended for evaluating and hopefully someone have spare time to make review from all of those nice _portable_ FREE utils. They deserve it!
