Hello!

These were some of the interesting topics discussed at reboot.pro last week.

Special note of interest to the really informative site from IronGeek about boot disk technology. Also, if you are looking for more cool scripts to use in your project, don't forget to pass by the personal sites of Homes32 and Al-Jo.


--- Team Reboot ---

We are looking for members interested in joining up the Reboot team 2011. Next month we'll be participating in a security contest and if you would like to join, you can read more about it at http://reboot.pro/14688/

Great summation of last weeks activity!

Edit -

Some of the mentioned scripts are missing (the SRWare Iron V. 11.0.700.3 is inactive).

Nuno,

it seems you have used a Google url shortener here.

Don't you think it should be better to add also the long url address, for who is not having that tool ?

Thanks, :smiling9:

Hey Nuno

The google shortener link has been disabled.

How about giving us the long hand link

Cheers
Paul

My apologies to everyone!

For some odd reason, the short URL is really not working. I've replaced the google link with the direct link on the first topic.

Thanks to Agni for posting the correct link in the meanwhile.

Hi Budda,

What you mean by inactive? I visited the topic and the mediafire link, they both seem active.

What is wrong?

I think I'm starting to turn into the boy who cried wolf!

Yesterday at the time of my posting I couldn't access the link provided in this thread. It was deleted or moved according to the website. As of today it works; go figure :/

From the past two weeks however Al_Jo's work has become password protected and the links here scattered on the forum are no longer function. This is indicated on his site. It's according to his .net site

To all members and visitors from reboot.pro that needs any of my projects or scripts:

PM me or leave a message here:

http://al-jo.99k.org/

Or here:

http://al-jo.zxq.net/

And I will send a link to the download location.

Google seems to have disabled the short link after it was posted on the newsletter:

I wasn't aware that this could happen. Typically I only include links to reboot.pro

From the past two weeks however Al_Jo's work has become password protected and the links here scattered on the forum are no longer function. This is indicated on his site. It's according to his .net site

I've tried the project a few days ago and it was available without password. I have no idea how this is going right now.

The screenr service is very cool.

Too bad about the scripts from Al Jo. I guess we'll have to propose a system where scripts are not made unavailable over night to end users.

Not a problem, it's simply disorganized on our end here. We have for example 5+ threads strung through out the forum and none of them now are functional. End users now have to go an additional step in what I consider an already fuzzy process to acquire what they need for project creation. It doesn't make sense from an end users point here to reference work thats technically not even there.

I don't want you to confuse my intent here al_jo, I love everything you post and respect what you do, I just find it frustrating of how things are currently structured.

Sorry, but there are reasons why I make it that way.
If you don’t like it: Don’t use it!
Simple as that!

Again, I said don't misinterpret what I am saying. Simply put, I've given my opinion as to the ease of use it is to acquire what is being advertised in this thread. Do I like your work? Yes. Do I respect your decision to do what ever you desire with your work? Yes.

If I do like it though and I can't use it because of the mechanism you employed, what do I do then?

Why you can’t use it?
Is it difficult to send me a message so that you will have a download link?

From a community based usability aspect, yes.

I make a couple of key assumptions. Firstly, because you are posting about your functioning work I'd come to believe you would like it for it to be used by people. This forum has as of right now 50 members, 2169 guests, 0 anonymous users within the past 2 hours. Any 1 of those 2,169 guests could be looking to utilize your work but not understand a thing about PE creation. Getting them to understand and implement a working PE is challenging enough but all of a sudden we add another step. If you desire to use someone's functional project you need to discover this after clicking on their own personal website link, discovering that you need to request it via a message, and hope they get back to you.

Why I am so adamant about getting in place a set of standards that removes these excess steps comes from an average end users stand point. Not only are we not helping community members we are almost actively discouraging them from participating/rejoining in the community in the future. Your work has been from my experience thus far the most comprehensive/stable/diverse all in one neat package; I love that! I simply wish to share this with the community abroad in the most simplistic way possible.

Sorry, no more comments from me concerning this “issue” that is
no issue at all to all other members/visitors contacting me everyday!

Well, I'm glad we agree it's an issue :cheers:

Regardless you know where I stand we also see where you stand as well. It really is a shame, but if we must part ways because conversation has ended then it is what must happen.

Enjoy your day Allan.
