Hebrew Dates v1.0.3

‍‍כ״ז שבט תשס״ז - Wednesday, February 14th, 2007

Based on feedback from KosherJava (on the v1.0.2. release announcement), I've enhanced the currentHebrewDate() API in the Hebrew Dates plugin. It now accepts parameters to control how the date is printed.

Small Fix to HebrewDate plugin

‍‍כ״ה שבט תשס״ז - Tuesday, February 13th, 2007

I've released a small fix to the HebrewDate plugin. The new version is 1.0.2, and is available, at the regular place.

Window Customizer

‍‍כ״ד שבט תשס״ז - Monday, February 12th, 2007

I recently wrote an application to rename (and customize) arbitrary windows under WinXP. The result, a 30KB MFC application, morphed into WindowCustomizer, which also supports changing the transparency, icon, and TopMost status of any desktop window.

Currently, only the EXE is available, as I want to release source under the GPL, but I'm not sure if I can do that with MFC. In the meantime, get the EXE from the WindowCustomizer release page under the Software section.


Updated Serial Logger (LogSer)

‍‍י״א שבט תשס״ז - Tuesday, January 30th, 2007

As a followup to the initial LogSer post, I'm releasing this version.

It supports selecting the baud rate (via -b <rate>) and the parity (-p <string>, where string is something like 8n1, 7e2, etc).

Compilation remains the same as the original:

Downloaded as either source code or a compiled EXE from the LogSer release page under the Software section

Whois WordPress Plugin

‍‍ל׳ מרחשון תשס״ז - Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

Yes, yet another WordPress plugin!

This one allows you to add additional "whois" servers to the listing shown in the comment display screen. It's also quite useful (as in my case) if you have a web gateway to search through logs, which I use to help block spammers.

The plugin comes with default entries to add APNIC, whois.ws, and LAPNIC searches, in addition to the default ARIN search. Simply add a path that can perform a whois query with the IP appended via the configuration screen to add a new query.

In order for the list to appear at all, you have to modify a few WP files (since I can't add a filter / action for this). Edit the files:

  • wp-admin/edit-comments.php
  • wp-admin/moderation.php
  • wp-content/plugins/akismet/akismet.php (only if you use the akismet plugin)

and add <?php if (function_exists('print_whois')) { print_whois(get_comment_author_IP()); } ?> right after the existing printing of comment_author_IP().

You can download Whois from the whois plugin section of the Software section.
