Hidden Krento settings

Krento does not use Windows registry to store the settings, but INI file instead. The name of the configuration file is  C:\Documents and Settings\User Name\Application Data\Krento\Krento.ini


The 'Location" parameter can have two values: ScreenCenter and Point. When Location is defined as ScreenCenter, then Krento is always appears at the screen center. When the value is Point,  Krento  appears at the point of mouse cursor where you pressed mouse wheel.

Free idDebugger Download

Free idDebugger 1 Download | idDebugger 1 Direct Download

Review by FileBEAST's Nameless_1:

idDebugger is an excellent little freeware application designed to simplify the debugging process by allowing for the testing of CGI and ISAPI applications without the need for an internet server. What this essentially means is the usually laborious, time consuming task of debugging applications during the development process is simplified and streamlined significantly. idDebugger is small and simple in design, and instead of offering a wide range of features it chooses rather to focus specifically on improving one very tedious aspect of the development process, and succeeds tremendously. Of course, this has the added advantage of making the application fast and easy to use, and developers are definitely going to appreciate the new ease with which ISAPI and CGI applications can now be debugged. Being both a solid performer and a great time saver, idDebugger is a very attractive freeware uti…

De afscheidsplechtigheid voor trein P7349 en P8349

Op vrijdag 11 december 2009 zouden we graag met zijn allen afscheid nemen van onze vertrouwde treinen P7349 en P8349.
Deze afscheidsplechtigheid zal plaatsvinden in het station van Leuven tussen 6:45 en 6:57.

Wij nodigen u vriendelijk uit om in Leuven even uit te stappen en u naar de voorkant van de trein te begeven.
Daar zal een rouwkrans overhandigd worden aan de treinbestuurder met de vraag deze vooraan an de trein te bevestigen.
Er zal ook een kopie van onze petities afgegeven worden voor de directie van de NMBS.

Na deze korte plechtigheid, hopelijk in aanwezigheid van de pers die ook uitgenodigd zal worden,
stappen we allen samen terug op om onze laatste rit verder te zetten.

EIDNative update

EIDNative Library is released today and available for download at Sourceforge:

In this version was improved the support of Visual Basic and VBA, added SIS cards support for VBA and added the card detection with SIS and EID cards support. There are 2 functions available now IsEIDCard and IsSISCard. When SIS card is inserted into reader EIDNative switches automatically to SIS cards reading mode.
As the switch between reading modes is not very fast operation, it is not recommended to close the GUI application when SIS card is still inserted into reader. In this case the application window disappears with some delay. You can also avoid it by reading card in the separate thread (Delphi, C++ and C#).

I also added the documentation for Visual Basic and Visual Basic sample of reading SIS card.

EIDNativeX update

New version of EIDNativeX ActiveX control for reading Belgian eID and SIS cards is available for download.
EIDNativeX has no external dependencies and works without eID Middleware.
