When I lost my 8 GB flash drive a couple of weeks ago, my digital life was over. With no working computer at home, my browser, games, homework, college essays, music, videos, and some projects I was working on were gone--nor could I do anything about it either. I had deleted my old backup data on my 2 GB so I could keep a copy of the original StarCraft on it after my laptop broke a while back. I was on the last mission of the Zerg in the expansion, when I realized my laptop wouldn't make it--I still got to finish that up some time.

I stumbled across this article about IObit Cloud, an alternative to other sites like VirusTotal, talking about how it works and the guys perspective on it.

I tried it out, uploading FirefoxPortable.exe and Halo SightJacker (SightJacker.exe), which is not a virus, but Sophos has been freaking out over it lately for very suspicious behavior (it lets you spy on other players in Halo to see if they use bots).

Here are the results:

It's almost here!
PowerProxy, the app I've mentioned I was developing a couple of times before, is almost done. I've pumped about 25 hours into the project during the past 5 days (thanks to spring break), and it's really coming together.

So what is this PowerProxy?

Ramblings of a crazy kid...

If you might not have noticed, I haven't been posting new development tests lately.
My ever-growing list of portable apps has paused. What does that mean? It either means that Angel I'm tired of making portable apps, (b) I've got to much stuff on my hands, (c) I'm making a new super-awesome app that will blow your minds away, or (d) Both (b) and (c) are happening.

And the answer is... you guessed it: (a)!


Just kidding, it's (d).

Well, I guess that would depend on whether your Oliver or Chris Blum

I've used PAL now to make all my portable apps at first because I wanted to get an official release. Now, though, I've used it so much, I have to say, good job chris (and all you contributors).

I think this has to be one of the most complex, open source NSIS program out there (well, in terms of functions and such).

I was checking out the SF site for portable apps yesterday and I saw ya'll have about 100,000 downloads of PAL.

But only 20 or so new developers?

Yay! I have a blog!

After three dozen development test releases, I got my first official release. Best Christmas gift ever.

Now, I only wish I could see how many downloads I have of Smart Defrag...

As of today, though, I have 12,939 downloads combined from and MediaFire. So that's cool. I'm also plan on making a ton of portable apps in the future (I was trying to out-flood John, but this month, I'm just getting slaughtered).
