  • WordLeaker, extracting info from Word files

      Inspired by the article written by Richard M. Smith: Microsoft Word bytes Tony Blair in the butt I’ve been programming an utility which can extract the same info from a Word file.

      It’s not finished yet, but it’s already working so I’m uploading it so anyone can try it.

      The Word file acompanying the article outputs the following info:

      The programs only compiles on Windows with GCC (for now), but should be easily portable to any platform. If you want to do it, send me a patch and I’ll include it.

      Any comment about the program or about useful information found with it will be welcomed.

      UPDATE: I’m stupid, I ftp’ed the doc file to my linux box in ascii mode, so it didn’t work. I have checked it again and the program compiles and works correctly in linux. It doesn’t contain a makefile so if you want to compile it:

      g++ -o WordLeaker Wordleaker.cpp pole.cpp

  • BlogJetIt: Plugin for RSSBandit and BlogJet

      I’ve been hacking RSSBandit code and I’ve implemented a plugin that allows to open BlogJet to write about the article we are reading.

      It’s very easy to use: download this file and decompress it.
      Copy BlogJetIt.dll to subfolder plugins in RSSBandit install folder. To modify the default theme of posts copy stylesheet.xsl where BlogJet is installed. This is a XSLT file, so you should know how it works if you want to modify it. If you don’t copy stylesheet.xsl the default theme will be used.
      When it’s installed, right click in any item and press Blog this using BlogJet
