Wednesday 04 May 2005 - Oh casters, Software updates, vURL
Oh casters

I thought I'd provide an update to the mention on April 24th concerning my hand, just incase anyone was wondering why there'd still not been any updates.

After being "advised" to do so by my girlfriend and doctor, I gave in and visited the hospital and have been told the hand is broken, the pinkie, pinkie knuckle and the bone that connects the knuckle to the rest of the hand is pemanently damaged. This was not the news I was hoping for and has basically meant I've had to have my hand and for some reason, my wrist, in a cast (most uncomfortable I can tell you).

I still have another visit to the hospital planned to get the cast removed (next Thursday) and the hand looked at to make sure it is healed but for now, it means I am only able to use my right hand for typing (not the easiest of things to do) as the pain is unbearable when using the left one (for obvious reasons). I am still trying to get as much done as I can and in the meantime can only apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope you will bear with me.

Software updates

I am pleased to announce, although later than I had hoped, I have finally updated Index.dat Suite. I still have plans to update Index.dat QV, File Fetch 2004, PUI, RF Types and a few others, however, due to the afformentioned, these are currently temporarily on hold until I am able to do such. In the meantime, should you have any suggestions and/or comments on the products/services currently available, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Those of you that have been following the AB Extension Pack will likely already know about the new vURL service.

Originally designed for Avant Browser users, vURL is a simple service that allows you to "dissect" a webpage and view the links, source code or just the title of a webpage, before you visit it. The reason behind it's development was due to an article by Lorna Hutcheson in the Internet Storm Center handlers diaries concerning a similar service that allowed you to "snoop" on a webpage' contents. As the service that was mentioned only provided a free demo, I decided to write my own (I'm not a fan of demo's) and out of this came the vURL dissection service.

Of course, as always, suggestions and comments are welcome.
