For both of you out there who care, WinHasher has now been bumped to version 1.3. The changes are very minor, so there’s no need to upgrade unless you find the following two new features useful:
I had originally started adding support for HMAC signed hashes but have abandoned that for now. If there’s anyone out there who might actually find that useful, drop me a line and I’ll revisit the code to see what I might be able to add. Downloads can be found at the first link above.
Sorry for the silence for the past… good golly… has it really been almost three months? Yeep.
Life’s been a little bit hectic on the GPF Farm. The good news is that GPF has been doing the best it’s done in years, and that alone has kept me hopping so much I haven’t had time to do much else. The bad news is that we’ve also had a lot of personal things going on to keep those few fleeting moments of free time from becoming truly free: several illnesses have swept through the house, hitting each of us individually in turn; we’ve had to fire a nanny and introduce Ben to the immunity-boosting powers of day care (see the previous item); and things have really picked up at work, where I’m currently multitasking on at least four projects. The post title says it all.
I did have a nice little anecdote started for you about the real life events that inspired the recent “iDilemma” stroy in GPF. Unfortunately, I got heavily distracted (see the previous paragraph) and never got around to finishing it. You can get the gist of the backstory in the “RIP PDA” thread on the GPF Forum. GPF Premium subscribers will likely have this condensed and repackaged into the Author’s Notes accompanying the story once I finally get around to it.
I do have a few things I’ve been meaning to blog about, so hopefully I’ll be able to get to those very soon. Again, sorry for the silence.
