Net Limiter 1.3 Access Violation Patch

Monday, May 29th, 2006

If you’re using Net Limiter 1.3 (I do – it’s fast and has most of the features I need) and doing any .Net 2.0 remoting (GB-PVR does). Then you should know that Net Limiter’s nl_lsp.dll is what’s causing a lot of that crashing (NOD32 Antivirus’s imon.dll also does this). I managed to track down the […]

gb-pvr joins the .net 2.0 world

Monday, May 29th, 2006

The various GB-PVR enhancements have I have been working on over the last while have finally all been upgraded to .Net 2.0. UncleJohnsBand was kind enough to upgrade the Enhanced Web Admin, and ubu upgraded the External Recording Plugin along with doing the first pass on the WDM Recording Plugin. A few minor .Net 2.0 […]

chromeless meebo 2.0

Sunday, May 28th, 2006

Update (Aug 28): I’ve created a Chromeless Meebo changelog page. My chromeless meebo proof-of-concept got an upgrade this weekend (now at version 0.5). It’s been fully upgraded to .Net 2.0, which means that there are no more external dependancies. Also included are: Saving of preferences. Single clicking on the tray icon only toggles the buddy […]

chromeless meebo

Friday, March 17th, 2006

Update (Aug 28): I’ve created a Chromeless Meebo changelog page. It will always have a link to the latest version. Launching Meebo in a “chromeless” window has been a feature request for many Meebo users since almost day one. Unfortunately because of the way web pages work, Meebo can’t really do this. There is a […]

busy bee

Sunday, February 26th, 2006

I’ve been naughty, and haven’t posted any update for almost two months now. I thought that I should give at least a little feedback on what I’m up to: GB-PVR, Jabber/XMPP, Work and Home.

imap authentication plugin 0.6

Monday, December 5th, 2005

Mark Quinn pointed out back in August, that the imap authentication plugin suffered from a rather serious security risk. If you knew that a site was using it, you could create cookie that would let you in without having to know a user’s real password. (You did have to know a valid user’s account name). […]

Win32 Ansi

Monday, September 19th, 2005

I’m busy developing the irc-transport for xmpp.py and the debuging output is coloured via ANSI escape sequences. This works great on a linux terminal, or via PuTTY, but not so great in a win32 console. I searched quite hard on Google for a ‘modern’ ansi.sys or ansi.com replacement, but couldn’t find anything. So here’s my […]

Lobby4Linux

Sunday, July 3rd, 2005

I’ve just been doing some coding for the irc-transport for the xmpppy project (now with vcard/whois and channel listing support!) when I came across Lobby4Linux in a channel topic. I think this guy’s blog is great! In other news Gareth has been working on the G8 REBOOT site. I suggest you swing by and help […]

TortoiseDarcs

Thursday, June 16th, 2005

Much along the lines of Hal’s Jabber ideas, I’ve been thinking that someone should code up TortoiseDarcs. I mean TortoiseCVS and TortoiseSvn are well used in the win32 world to provide a friendly interface to the user, so it’s about time we had one for darcs too. So when you’ve done it, let me know

psi muc build for win32

Saturday, May 21st, 2005

If you’re interested in trying out Nolan’s work on the MUC interface in Psi then grab one of my builds. Quick summary of events for HalR9000: I’m using the VS.Net 2003 build environment. I happen to have ActivePerl installed too. Grab CVS version of Psi – requires CVS client like TortoiseCVS Get Qt, and QCA […]
