So I figured I would blog about my first month learning Visual C++ it's defiantly been a learning experience and a fun one at that! I was looking for a good book to get started on C++ so I went to the used book store and picked up Beginning Visual C++ 2005 by Ivor Horton. It's a wonderful book and he does a very good job explaining the fundamentals of the C++ language (ISO/ANSI C++ and C++/CLI) I'm currently wrapping up chapter 15 and figured now would be a great time to share my progress. I fin
Well here I am again, this week I finished up chapter 15 and decided to test some of my knowledge and basic understanding of C++. I went ahead and took a quick break from Beginning Visual C++ and spent the better part of the day reading another book called Network Programming for Microsoft Windows Second Edition. It's a wonderful book which explains the very basic fundamentals of winsock design. The first chapter introduces winsock in a nutshell. You know in my years of dabbling with an equally
So as many of you know, I have been working on a very neat project! It's open source, it runs on LINUX and Windows, it uses cryptography and it eventually will pack and protect files. I'm really proud of this project for a number of reasons. It's creative and unique, but more importantly I made the choice to share my code with the world. Once the code goes up on the project sites SourceForge and Google Code. People will be able to use the source in their projects, hopefully it will promote new i
I found myself searching youtube for chiptunes and for some reason I was like... I wonder if anyone has ever created a chiptune for any of the Depeche Mode songs and sure enough I found one.
If you find anymore please post links.
I usually listen to streams on XTC radio or ETN while I'm coding and this week I heard a sick little beat by Marcus Schossow - Girls Suckcces. If you like vocal trance you might enjoy this track. He has some other great tracks as well. The guys really talented and I always like seeing creative musicians come up in the scene.
music is off the hook!

I plan on releasing more information related to this project in the next couple of weeks. I started developing DobReXor back in mid December. It's made a lot of progress and I've managed to port the code over to Linux. The application is supported on both Windows and Linux. It was a tough decision for me because I wanted to make my first cryptographic project unique, but I also wanted to focus on two topics of interest to me, obfuscation being one of them and malware being the other and how the
Just a few updates on DobReXor, I've managed to finish one of the most important classes which executes the following instructions. I will explain more in detail next week when time permits. I have attached the encrypted, decrypted, files along with the public and private keys for anyone who wants to analyse them. Please send all questions here or feel free to comment on my blog.

I have received a few questions regarding the usage and some requests for a GUI/FE. Now that most of the functions and data types are finished and working! I decided to devote some time to the interface. I have decided to add a plug-in feature for the Windows version, which will be useful for me and other coders. This idea was mainly in part due to the decrypting stub, some people may want to develop addons which they do not want to share their source so this is a happy medium for people who wan
OK, so like I was saying I needed a crash course in Qt development with C++. I just wanted to let everyone know that the experience is great so far... I actually was a bit nervous about using Qt with my latest project but needed something that would allow me to develop a nice clean looking interface and run smoothly on both LINUX and Windows. I like sharing my various programming learning experiences plus it kinda motivates me to try new things. I had some issues at first configuring NetBeans to
