This is most likely the last update to this page, as I am no longer
updating this site, and haven't for quite awhile. This page will remain
here and will not be taken down, meaning that the information and downloads
will stay. I also have a new site
here on SourceForge, with newer programs all written by myself, some
to do useful things I wanted and others simply as demonstrations. The new
site I will continue to work on and add new stuff as time goes by.

Been awhile since my last update but I've made a MP3 Lister program in
VB and it is now uploaded. I think it's pretty useful and I use it
myself. The files are MP3Lister-1.5.37Inst.zip for the full installer
with the source and exe included and MP3Lister-1.5.37.zip with only
the exe and source. It is recommended to download the full installer
unless you already have a previous release installed, or VB6 installed
and it might work with just the VB6 runtimes, but I'm not sure. When you
first run the program, you need to click the "Choose MP3 Folder" button
and enter the path to your MP3 folder ex. c:\mp3's\ and it MUST end with
\ otherwise it will not work. It will even work with someone else's shared
mp3 folder over a lan.

Sorry about the lack of updates. Today is my birthday *yea* but I just
reupped the installer so now you should be able to download it since there
was some problem with it before (space maybe) but it works now and it
is also the installer for version 0.9.2.

New 1337 translator 1337ify it v2.0 it will run as window or in the systray
and it captures input from the keyboard then sends 1337 text to the active
window. Works ok so far but unfortunatley if you type to fast, it will go
and delete stuff you've already typed. A friend said it was like hardcore
1337 because it 1337ifies every letter you type so maybe I'll make a
button to switch from hardcore 1337 to casual 1337 where only the common
stuff is changed like e=3 a=4 o=0 i=1 t=7 f=ph and so on instead of

I made a translator to go from normal text to 1337 text and am working on
another to go from 1337 to normal text. It needs the VB6 runtime files to

Well I added a shell for the minimalists that I just made, for those that
like a clean desktop. Theres nothing to see but whatever background image
you choose, and a menu pops up when you right click. To make it work you
need to open the source up in VB and then change the locations for the
files on the run menu, then recompile, maybe I'll make it so that you
can change it at run-time someday. Oh and like the UplinkDesktop Shell
this one also needs a resolution of 1280x1024 to display properly but
you can resize the stuff in the source if you want, and it will auto-size
the picture you choose to be the same size as the image box it is in
Here's a screenshot:
That's my l337 wallpaper in the back from Skinbase.org
Oh btw I didn't make it :P someone else did it just happened to be the pic
I used as my wallpaper at the time.

I just added a bunch of new features *yea* like a cd player and a os info
thing which shows the OS Version, Platform, and Build you are running also
added a free memory thing. I updated the download page but haven't rebuilt
the installer yet just the exe though if you run the old installer and
replace the exe file with the new one it should work. I also got rid of
the system out of date please reboot error and like it says below it is
caused because the packager is not compatible with Win2k.

Hmmmm no wonder it still does the endless reboot thing.
WARNING: Windows 2000 users will not able to use the Package and
Deployment wizard. The platform doesn't support it. This
project can be completed on Windows 95 or 98 only. Win2k-created setups will
cause an endless reboot!

I changed the Instant Messenger links to be a text editor instead it works fine
and all. I added version numbers lol and updated the files but haven't updated
the installer on the mirror on Geocities yet.
Monday, February, 18, 2002
I just changed the *.tif graphics files on the site to *.jpg so maybe they
will work for those of you with older browsers :P and the *.tif files on
the downloads page I changed to be *.png which are like jpgs and are more
compatible with systems than tif files.

Well I removed the old calendar stuff to try to fix the System Out Of Date You
Need To Reboot error maybe it won't do that anymore. I also updated all the

I just added a lot of stuff including making the uptime counter follow the
cursor until you click like the programs in the game do :) and I got the
favorites page to work. Also I worked on the User Login but it didn't work so I
put it back like the way it was before. I also changed the calendar to one that
doesn't look nearly as good but will work better on different systems because I
think the old one I had would only work on systems with Visual Studio .NET
installed and might have also need Microsoft Office XP. I updated the downloads
and remade the installer so it is now half the size it was before :)

Well today I'm working on adding the user creation and started an options menu
but then I realized that it would be best to wait until I got the different
users part of the program working. Oh and check out
WestEndComputerFest and also
Helbreath, it's a pretty cool mmorpg even
though you have to download a file thats about 200 megs to play. UO is still

Added a computer uptime counter, it counts in seconds. I haven't updated the
downloads yet but i will soon. The new function uses the satellite picture menu
and it works fine.
Thursday, February 7, 2002
Oh and btw it requires a resolution of 1280x1024 and it will auto-set to it. And
to set it as your shell after installing you can edit a line in the system.ini
and change shell=explorer.exe to
shell=<place where the program is installed>
Ok well here are the screenshots.

Check this out it's what I've been working on.
It is a Windows Shell based on
the game Uplink.
Screenshots Coming Soon.
It has a web browser, instant messanging stuff, text-to-speech, a calendar,
file-browser, and more.
Uplink Desktop Installer (8.75 Meg,
includes all dll's and external files, calendar and text-to-speech *might* not
Uplink Desktop EXE only (420KB,
just the exe REQUIRES VB6 and all dll's installed)
Uplink Desktop Source
(438KB, the source code in MS VB6, project file, forms, gfx, and code no dll's)
Oh btw, I am not responsible for anything this program or the use of it causes
to your computer if it blows up or anything like that (not that it would).
And credits go out to Introversion
http://www.introversion.co.uk for making this great game and for the button
gfx, the style, and all the rest that I used/borrowed as the basis for this
