Hi. I am Cor,
Writer, maker of tools..
Good Morning7am: Start. Jet Engines, Heating systems. On. Power lines crackle, warm to cutting-edge kettles, feeding electrons as required, machines wake and suck it up. I will come in over your WiFi and leave a note, It will say: Someone was here, doesn't matter who. What matters is that they, me, simply looked. Security <---> Convenience. Geddit? Even a fuzzy clock precisely predicts the whirlpool that always is 7.15am: By then, so much is stirring; Teacups, Tornados, Lovers, Spoons.. I am leaving now, sweeping my data behind me, Promising not to leave a trace, Except big letters, clearly written. Cor, July 2009.
So that's words, then.
They are tools, or can be. I make tools.
Maybe you've heard of some of them, maybe..
I create all sorts of things. Images,
like these free widescreen wallpapers are..
I can get Scanoramic when I have to..
But usually end up making more tools..
I'm continually bathed in, fascinated by these things..
With more or less success, I capture the notes I hear around me, into forms you can en-joy. I sing, too. And bang things. Free MP3s come and go, sometimes in piles, and sometimes only for a day or two, as is my wont. Help yourself.
..web server fun
Maybe, like millions before you came here to leech check out some of my world-famous
.htaccess tips and tricks. Hey, if you make web sites, why not check out some juicy web techniques or grab some groovy Web Site Spare Parts™ or while you're at it!
Like the world's fastest live php search engine..
Or a back-end download machine that can not only count and log your web downloads, but embed its download menus right inside your site's pages, like this (simple example)..
Or a php login system that closes a common (commonly ignored, that is) browser security hole? That would be pajamas.
Or perhaps a dynamic 404 page capable of not only automatically seeking out your site's missing pages, but jumping users directly to files you just happened to move, even fixing your broken links (even broken image links) on-the-fly.. And while it's at it, handles all your error documents, 403, 500, 401, whatever you need.. Meet Active Error Pages.
Or what about a Hot-Link script capable not just of defeating nasty bandwidth thefts, but of transforming them into free promotions for your site! Auto-HotLink is free, too.
Or what about a way to protect your site from bandwidth-sucking site hammers, bad bots, script-kiddies, h4x0rs, referer spammers and more? That would be the often-copied, never equalled, one-and-only.. Anti-Hammer. Note: Anti-Hammer Pro now available!
..just some of the highlights.
Or maybe you want to setup a server, or do some P2P file sharing, and got tricked into thinking I had the most accessible Static IP tutorial on the web. Sucker! It just looks that way because the rest are so poor (that's still a great way to get on top in many fields of endeavour). There are quite a few other tutorials kicking around here, more get added all the time, as time allows.
The networking stuff has been thrown here. I aim to expand this area, share some of my work with OpenWrt, amongst other things. As time allows.
Maybe you were looking for something else. Do feel free to rake around, there is a lot more inside, and a lot of it fairly well hidden, needs locating. That search function is handy for that, I find (at the foot).
I'm here full-time, making your life easier!
So while you are passing through, reaping the benefits, perhaps you might consider helping out with my family's next meal, pair of shoes, that sort of thing..
Every penny is gratetully received (though after PayPal's cut, I'm not sure exactly how much that would be! But hey! Thanks anyway! ;o)
Either way, people do say lots and lots of nice things..
Note: refresh the page for even more!
