This mod allows Minecraft server administrators access to backup their server through easy in game commands
I needed this mod since at first I was just going to use a shell script while I was able to get it working on Linux I could not so on Windows
So I decided I would make my first Minecraft mod to do what I needed it to do.

I know git is not the best solution for this problem and I'm all ears for better solutions.

  • Initialization of a git repository
  • Manual backup to git repository
  • Hourly backup to a git repository

Planned Features
Other methods of backup.

After forge is installed on server copy .jar to mods folder

Using the Application
Use the command
Code: Text [Select]
  1. /sgb init
While in game to create a new git repository for your server followed by
Code: Text [Select]
  1. /sgb autobackup on
To create the first backup and a new backup once an hour.

Delete the jar from the mods folder.

This is my first mod so expect some bugs

Known Issues
Sometimes the first backup must be created using git out of game.  No .gitignore file just the following commands
Code: Text [Select]
  1. git add -A
  2. git commit -m "First backup"
If you feel you have the issue where you must do this ensure your server is not running.

Found Deals and Discounts / Free Software from Microsoft.

When talking to Krish and Stephen on IRC I informed them of a program Microsoft offers called WebsiteSpark

WebsiteSpark gives small Web development and design companies a jumpstart by providing free tools, technologies and resources to build great websites.

It includes software such as Windows Server 2012 Standard (5 keys none the less) and Visual studio 2012 Professional and other development software.
So if your an independent developer with a tight wallet or a small startup company on a budget this is perfect for you.

I am not an employee of Microsoft or any subsidiary

Living Room / Interesting Discovery Involving Rented Servers
« on: April 29, 2009, 09:00 AM »
OK Gothi[c] and I were having a little chat in the IRC chat about old data on servers and how to remove it.

So I decided to see if I could find any data from the dedicated server my friend just got, sure enough I found a lot of interesting and weird data....

Bottom line is if your going to cancel a server from a company make sure you wipe the hard drive(s) before you do as most companies just repartition and format the drive they don't wipe any data off it.

That means your passwords, your emails, pictures and what ever else that was on the server still could be accessible, on the flip side that means if someone before you had illegal data on the server and your server gets seized for what ever reason.

You COULD be held accountable for the data that THEY had on it.

So when you getting a new rented server make sure you wipe the drive before you lose access.
And when getting a new rented server make sure you/your host wipes the drive before you start putting your data on it.

Living Room / Creative Commons Music Sites - List Your Favorites
« on: March 18, 2008, 08:31 PM »

Jamendo is a place for artists from around the world to post their work under the Creative Commons license.
Users can download artists' songs from Jamendo a variety of ways including http and eMule and BitTorrent or can listen to them using the webplayer.

Artists Benifits
Jamendo also allows users to donate to artists that have chosen to receive donations. (Minimum amount to donate is $5) 
Artists can choose to either receive donations, in which case Jamendo will keep a small portion of the donation (website says as little as 50 cents) or they can choose to receive a portion of the revenue from Jamendo's ads.

Selection is fairly decent, a lot of songs from non English speaking countries as well.
Web Interface is very nice uses AJAX and has a nice Web 2.0 feel to it.
Artists also get some income from this via donations or shared ad revenue



N.A.N.Y. 2008 / YASA (Yet Another Steganography Application)
« on: December 30, 2007, 06:28 AM »
YASA is a small learning project made in C# using the .Net framework 2.0
YASA will take an source image in bmp, png or jpg format and hide any type of data inside of it and save as png


Tested YASA under Ubuntu 7.04 using Mono and it works perfectly fine. :)
If a mac user with an intel and/or ppc cpu could please test using mono it would be greatly appreciated.

Ubuntu 7.04 running YASA

Mars Project Stage 1 - v1.0.61230.15 - December 30th 2006
  • First public release
  • Basic chat server for the Ares Galaxy P2P chat network

What is Mars Project
Mars Project is a long term project, to be a replacement for the Ares Galaxy P2P network focusing on chat instead of file sharing.
It is being developed in multiple stages, so far only a few stages have been planned out.
Each stage will be fully usable.

Stage 1
Stage 1 is an Ares Galaxy compatible chat server, it works with the Ares Galaxy official client.

Stage 2
Stage 2 is separated into 2 sub stages. Stage 2a will be a custom Mars Server which will NOT be compatible with the official
Ares Galaxy client, but instead will use it's own client.  Stage 2b will be the custom client which will be compatible with the official
Ares Galaxy server, and also be a client for Stage 2a.

Plans on the stages for the file sharing part of Mars Project hasn't been made yet.
