hi there,

White Smoke == WinterTree Grammar checker and WinterTree spell checker.

the filenames are the same as if you downloaded from WinterTree's website.

I can defend above the statement above because I have a friend who has
WhiteSmoke, and it's very interesting that they do not even have a trial or
anything to try before you buy.

also, if you right click and see version properties on WhiteSmoke's files,
they are WinterTree grammar checker files.

we're starting up small website selling MFC C++ libraries and wondering what developer sites are good to advertise on...

two years ago,

one of my friends wrote a similar app to Alwin's collectorz application. if I remember, it was for movies collecting...
He was promptly served with copyright legal notices and websites which linked to his sites got DCMA take-down notices.

I guess Alwin is busy "protecting" his applications from competition...


I'm a lawyer (and software developer) who advises (my clients) on legal issues.

Your conduct is completely disgraceful and typical of big-bully corporations:

1) Do you have ANY shed of evidence that code was copied? (Yes/No)

if NO --> then what's your problem?

2) Is your process patented?

if NO --> then what's your problem?

you cannot "copyright a process" or "known facts". you can only copyright your own implementation.

3) Why are you harassing a competitor in public for?

If you're doing this to make your competitor lose face -

How clever is your lawyer to defend your bad-faith actions?


- your DC RSS feed only has 5 items and forum has 30 posts in one day...
I think your RSS feed needs to show 60 posts (on average)?


it's easy to figure it out.

the program is made using VB6. it generates the serial using Windows Serial Number, Disk serial Number, and Network ID, then to generate a fingerprint, it does a CRC32.

the timer is set to trigger every 2 or 3 seconds. the fingerprint is 18 characters, I reduced it to [any character] as fingerprint.



i don't know if it's just me or your ZIP file is not correct. I enter in anything and it turns green all the time.

any ideas?  :tellme:
