TrueIP, Service Edition

Recently a user requested the ability to run TrueIP as a Windows service. This seems like a fairly useful feature, and I’ve put some thought into actually implementing it. Unfortunately, the current version of TrueIP does not support running as a Windows service due to its requirements for the user interface features like the system… Read More »

MX Records – Sending Me Email

It has come to my attention that the MX records for the haztek-software.com domain have not be in place for a couple of months since I transferred my domain to a new registrar. If you have recently attempted to contact me via email for any reason, I most likely did not receive your email message.… Read More »

StorURL Online Revamp

It appears that http://myip.dnsomatic.com no longer functions properly. It has been working for years, but I imagine it has been abused,… Read More »

Request to TrueIP Users

Hello everyone! I have recently noticed that a significant amount of TrueIP users have set their update time to an unrealistically low value, which is causing servers to slow for others. I would like to request a few changes be made if possible. Firstly, while I originally included an update page on the futurec.net domain,… Read More »

New Application: Pandora Desktop

Recently I opened my Pandora application and was greeted with a message stating that I needed to pay to continue using the Pandora desktop application. While it would have given me features such as ad-less music, I felt $36 was not worth the 12 months of music. I write free applications, after all. So after… Read More »
