Mircryption / Re: problems with download from SourceForge
« on: May 19, 2006, 10:20 PM »
* PhilKC mutters under his breath "Because sourceforge sucks"

I've encountered the same thing time and time again with sourceforge, the download gets to x%, then stops... I can only assume it's the SF servers kicking clients off as it doesn't happen anywhere else...

Anyway, after two tries, I managed to get the file, try from http://bluescreenofd...nSuite_Setup_151.exe

Is it *all* of your internet that fails, or just DNS (Which can feel like everything due to almost everything depending on it.)?


Haha, so much for secret :D

I'm not mouser... But:

A) Otherwise the binary submitted could do something nasty like... Delete random files... I don't think the source code is going to be published against your request...
However, authors can elect not to have the source code released to the public.

B) Mouser will be able to give you an answer to this...

C) As far as I know, mouser only speaks English, however, you could help out by translating it into German (Or any other language) and passing it on to mouser...

As I said, I'm not mouser, and my comments above are only assumptions that should be disregarded as soon as mouser replies :)


Finished Programs / BMP Converter...
« on: April 07, 2006, 04:52 PM »
Hey folks, just a small app with Explorer integration to convert from BMP to [JPG|PNG|GIF]... (Requires the .NET 2 framework, you probably already have it, if not see Windows Update or )

Double click to 'install', it will add the functions to the context menu of all BMP files (I'm looking to make it cascade for the next release...).
To remove, Just run:   BMPC remove

It works on batches of files, just select them all, Right Click-> To [JPG|PNG|GIF]...

Problems, bugs, requests comments... All welcome :)

Have fun,


Pseudo code:

StreamReader in = new StreamReader(inputFile);
String[] lines = in.ReadToEnd().Split("\r\n".ToCharArray());
ArrayList checker = new ArrayList();
for (int i=0;i<lines.Length;i++)
     if (!checker.Contains(lines[i]))
StreamWriter out = new StreamWriter(outputFile);
for (int i=0;i<checker.Count;i++)

That was from memory, so, I have no idea if it would compile... (It's C# :P)


My stupid fault,i didn't correctly read your instructions about the docid.Got it working now.
Hope i didn't cause you any false panic.I will post back after banging around on it for a bit.
Cool stuff and good ideal,i love anything that helps one work with video.Keep up the good work.

No problemo, I should have made it clearer.


I'm Getting this

An unknown error occured: System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an

Should i have Google's player running in the background,logged in,etc.

Hmmm, What's the line you gave it, and is it persistant? There isn't any need for Google video player.


Can't you just use Google Video Player to download the (high quality) GVI? It saves it the video locally, and is of better quality that the FLVs. Also, since GVI is just DivX /w content protection, u can convert it to AVI if u want with VirtualDub.. or it may already be straight DivX in many cases, not sure on that.

Possibly, although the FLV is only downloaded as a fall back, and the AVI is the same quality as the GVI afaik...
I'd be more willing to use the Google video player if it supported more than just it's own formats...


Everyone knows how usefull Google video is, but sometimes it's a shame not be able to save the content locally...

Now you can ;)...

But, before a full GUI version is made, I need people to test this out, and report bugs/problems or features they would like to see...
It's in C#, .NET 2, which means you need:

Then grab the binary from: Here!...


GGrabber <Google video DOCID> <Google video DOCID> <Google video DOCID>  etc...

The DOCID is the long value in the URL, like: <-- The DOCID would be 8248766101102341416. Also note that some DOCIDs will have a minus before them, which should be included in the GGrabber line...

It will look for the AVI at first, but, if Google doesn't have an AVI format, it will fall back to FLV (Flash Video). It will try to save it as "Video name".Format, but if the Video Name contains things like : or / then it can't save them as that and will fall back to using the DOCID.

Remember this is more a PoC than a full program... Have fun!

In eclipse I just use


Which automatically adds a task with a priority. (TODO == normal, FIXME == high, NOTE == low and WTF == high)

For VS2005 I end up using a comment block at the top of the class/function in question.


Try BitComet. ( )
It's written in c++ and runs very smooth :)

BitComet is more of a leecher tool, and is widely banned by trackers and other peers for various reasons (Not respecting the private flag, not uploading much data, etc)...

As for Java being crap, well, I quite like it, it's often taken for granted that fact that a program can run on almost any OS with absolutly no re-coding... Sure, it's not as light as C or C++ (Although, those complaining about Azureus using too much memory: ) but it serves it purpose...

NTFS, non server, main PC, BIG difference after defrag'ing (Although I do tend to create a lot of files).
NTFS, server, dedicated, BIG difference after defrag'ing (Those 500MB logs arn't nice ;)).
NTFS, non server, spare PC, Never done anything too heavy after the last defrag, so, no real effect...

I stick to the Windows defrag'er, it works...

If you only use your PC for web browsing, text editing etc, chances are you won't notice the effects, but, games, heavy file I/O apps, server applications etc will ;)


Screenshot Captor / Re: Ewido finds malware in KeyHook.dll ??
« on: January 14, 2006, 12:04 AM »

I expect that a script kiddy has used the same DLL as you, but in a more malicious program, hence the anti-virus' picking up on it.

Public keylogging DLL's are often used this way, and are blacklisted for it.
