2011-08-04 @ 15:33: major HOSTS file update DownloadsNetworkSecurity

I updated the HOSTS file, added compatibility with Android OS and added a simple install script to control the HOSTS file on Windows. I didn’t create an APK since you need root-access on Android to update the file and I think if you’re already root you won’t install this file using an APK. 😉 Just push it to /system/etc and you’re good to go. No need to reboot. Changes apply immediately.


I tested the script on Windows Seven x32 only and I appreciate to hear your experiences when running on any x64 version of Windows. Anyway, enjoy!

2011-03-19 @ 16:22: secure HOSTS file updated AGAIN! DownloadsSecurity

Some minutes ago I got a chat message on Facebook from one of my Ville Helpers¹. This is what she wrote:

OMG: This girl killed herself after her FATHER posted this message on her wall: bit.ly/hiht3w

Sounds like the usual crap, so I opened the link with Chromium 12 in an incognito session. It redirected me to www.aclebite.info and forced me to log in to Facebook. I didn’t check what happened when I log in, so just be careful. The domain is blocked by my latest HOSTS file.

2010-12-29 @ 15:43: music was my first love DownloadsMusic

Several years ago (I guess it was somewhere around the late 90s) I composed an acid track which I never released to the public. Today I remixed and published it for your listening pleasure. Enjoy!

2010-12-25 @ 13:42: multi-partition-support for removable media devices DownloadsTools

Some time ago I found a fantastic driver on the net which allows the creation of a multi-partition memory-stick. It was just the naked driver, without anything else and since Windows shows only the first partition on such devices when the driver is not installed, an easy install/uninstall solution was needed. I use the driver-loader from Guido Wischrop and created a script around that which seamlessly installs the driver and starts it invisible in the background when you start Windows. Download the complete package here.
