    Logview4net Release 17.08

    Sat, Feb 25, 2017
    It was a year ago since the last release of logview4net. This resease was initiated by an error report from a user and due to my development environment I decided to bite the bullet and use a more recent version of the .Net Framework. I will probably do a lot of work on the graphics now that I can use WPF instead of WinForms. I did not sign this release so Windows will complain about it having an unknown publisher.

    LinkedIn email address security

    Tue, May 20, 2014
    LinkedIn contact email addresses seems to be a tricky mess. Today I got a message from a friend asking me why she got a confirmation from LinkedIn that I had changed my password. The confirmation was (at least by name) addressed to me. After some digging in the LinkedIn settings I found that I had six email addresses registered to receive email from LinkedIn. I only recall entering one, maybe two, of the addresses.

    The Panic Driven Development Manifesto

    Wed, Oct 2, 2013
    To begin the story you should know about the Manifesto for Agile Software Development These ideas are now more than a decade old and just as most other noble ideas they have morphed into thorny parodies of the original. A lot of my customers practice Panic Driven Development Agile valuesWe Individuals and interactions over processes and tools do whatever we're told in response to uninformed panic. Working software over comprehensive documentation fix it when some one panics, unless it's documented.

    jsiBitBot release 13.36

    Tue, Sep 10, 2013
    I’ve improved the error handling a bit, but there are still some exceptions popping up. When you see an exception dialog just click continue. Nothing catastrophic will happen. Not visible to most users, but I’ve cleaned up the registry keys used by the application. You can now enter a bitcoin address per bot by right clicking the title of each bot. As you will see you can also restart a bot from there.

    InstallMonetizer improvements

    Mon, Aug 26, 2013
    A while back I made a post regarding InstallMonetizer that turned into some whining about how the bundled installer from them looked. My intentions with the post was mostly to tell my (complaining) users what was happening but I also had some hope of making a change by speaking about my perceived problem. In a week or so after posting my complains I got a polite email from Jay at InstallMonetizer wanting to know what they could do to make me use their service again.

    jsiBitBot 13.34.1

    Tue, Aug 20, 2013
    Oh, how I totally screwed up the experience for new users. When doing a reorganization of the source code I forgot to hook a lot of the user actions when setting up jsiBitBot for the first time to the appropriate code blocks. This resulted in a nasty error dialog when testing the captcha settings and the bots didn’t work at all. Thanks a lot to user Lauri for having the patience to report the error and retest my poor attempts at fixing it.

    jsiBitBot 13.29

    Mon, Jul 8, 2013
    Today I added a new bot (Bicoin4you) to jsiBitBot … and I tinkered a little bit more with timers and scheduling. I have to manage bots that falls out of my state machine a lot better now that they all run in the same window. Please let me know when a bot starts to misbehave. These are the currently supported ‘free’ bitcoins sites that jsiBitBot supports: Earn Free Bitcoins
