heRO Server Firewall Patcher
A group of friends and I started playing Ragnarok Online (again) on a free server called heRO. Although we could get it to run with Crossover Mac, we still couldn’t connect to the server. With a few tweaks to the system firewall, I fixed the routing issues, auto-launched the game, and even added in an auto-update tweak — all in Bash. A future version will get created in AppleScript for more functionality.

In November, I did a presentation to the Information Protection Association of Manitoba on client-side attacks on web-based applications. My presentation notes can be found here. There are a number of formats available: straight slides, with notes, 4-up, and 9-up. Original Microsoft Powerpoint format is available upon request.
Lineup is a bulk downloader I initially designed to download some of my favorite webcomics. It’s rough around the edges, but I have plans in the works to refactor it. It’s all plugin-based, so you can develop an addon to work with any web site running on the HTTP protocol.
