Tuesday 20 December 2005 - Decoding the spam .. again, Pricelessware 2006 now available, iMedia drivers please!, Product Support unavailable, A note to 84.179.110.59
Decoding the spam .. again

Yes folks, it's true. Whilst I'm no-where near as good at writing as Mr Liston, or as funny as Mr Boyd, I decided two wasn't enough and so wrote yet another little article to wrap-up my tribute to Joe.

This time we go "inside the beast" and take a look at Base64 e-mails and how to decode them ... safely. As always, comments and suggestions are most welcome.

Pricelessware 2006 now available

Whilst only available via HTTP to select individuals at the moment, the Pricelessware 2006 CD ISO is now available publicly via torrent. For those unaware, Pricelessware is a collection of freeware that is chosen by the participants of the alt.comp.freeware newsgroup as "the best of the best in freeware".

The download itself is 637MB so not recommended for dial-up users and is only available via a trackerless torrent file (unfortunately, trackerless torrents are only supported by a minute amount of clients).

Full details on this, aswell as how you can obtain your copy, can be found below.

iMedia drivers please!

Unfortunately, unless I want to pay through the nose to have Packard Bell send me a copy, I have had to resort to putting out a request to anyone with an iMedia 4600 that still has the original CD that came with it to please let me know if you would be willing to copy and send it to me (as far as I know, this is not against it's EULA).

Alas my searches online have not turned up anything of use (I was refered to the Packard Bell FTP site but got myself lost in all of the folders so gave up after around 3 hours of searching for it). I've been in touch with the OEM and they unfortunately, no longer have any copies of it (strangely, my brother thought nothing of the fact he was not supplied a copy when he purchased the machine)

If you have the original CD that came with this machine or know where I can get a copy of it, please get in touch.

Product Support unavailable

Unfortunately I was busy with something else so did not realise until alerted by an alt.comp.freeware regular that this site was down.

Although HTTP access is currently unavailable, I do have access via FTP and according to the log files, the server went offline at approximately 13:30 GMT London. I've spoken with my friend Andrew (Cole) at Inspiratech 2000 Ltd (my hosts) and unfortunately, the only conclusion that we can come to as to the cause, is due to FastHosts upgrading of the servers software.

At this time, I cannot give a time frame for the site's return as I simply do not know (Andrew is trying to get in touch with FastHosts to find out). In the meantime, those wishing to locate a Ur I.T. Mate Group product, can find them in the archives at the address below.

Updated: 18:15 GMT London - According to the servers logs, the support site is now back online as of 17:58 (5:58pm). I would like to say a huge thankyou to Andrew at Inspiratech for getting it back so fast.

A note to 84.179.110.59

This is just a small note to 84.179.110.59, and the many others that seem to want to try PHP exploits on the Intranet server.

To ensure they can all read it, I'm going to put this in big bright bold letters.
