Picasa 3 Photo viewer

Posted on April 27, 2009. Filed under: Computers | Tags: |

Checkout Picasa 3’s Photo Viewer. It’s cool and ‘Mac’ish. I changed my default viewer from Windows Picture and Fax Viewer to Picasa’s Photo Viewer.

Simple Keylogger

Posted on April 23, 2009. Filed under: Programming | Tags: , |

I was searching the net for free keyloggers. Then it struck me, why don’t i make one for myself? The real hardcore coders out there use complex stuff like window hooks, interrupts, WM messages, etc.

What I’ve made is a simple keylogger. And, as the name suggests, logs keystrokes. How it records key strokes? Simple. Using the VC++ GetAsyncKeyState() function. Most antivirus and malware detection softwares detect programs that uses hooks, interrupts and stuff. While, they don’t seem to detect the quick and dirty GetAsyncKeyState(). Isn’t it cool?

No, this software was not developed with bad intentions in mind. No one should use such things for personal gains, and password thefts. I developed the program just to be familiar with the area of stealth coding, and to monitor things that happen on my own computer. Security reasons.

Gotta be somebody

Posted on April 12, 2009. Filed under: Music |

This time
I wonder what it feels like
To find the one in this life
The one we all dream of
But dreams just aren’t enough
So I’ll be waiting for the real thing.
I’ll know it by the feeling.
The moment when we’re meeting
We’ll play out like a scene straight off the silver screen
So I’ll be holdin’ my breath
Right up to the end
Until that moment when
I find the one that I’ll spend forever with

‘Cause nobody wants to be the last one there.
‘Cause everyone wants to feel like someone cares.
Someone to love with my life in their hands.
There’s gotta be somebody for me like that.

‘Cause nobody wants to go it on their own
And everyone wants to know they’re not alone.
Somebody else that feels the same somewhere.
There’s gotta be somebody for me out there.

Tonight out on the street out in the moonlight
And damn it this feels too right
It’s just like Déjà Vu
Me standin’ here with you
So I´ll be holdin’ my breath
Could this be the end?
Is it that moment when
I find the one that I’ll spend forever with?

‘Cause nobody wants to be the last one there
‘Cause everyone wants to feel like someone cares.
Someone to love with my life in their hands.
There’s gotta be somebody for me like that.

‘Cause nobody wants to go it on their own
And everyone wants to know they’re not alone.
Somebody else that feels the same somewhere?
There’s gotta be somebody for me out there.

You can’t give up!
[When you’re lookin’ for] a diamond in the rough
[Because you never know] when it shows up
[Make sure you’re holdin’ on]
‘Cause it could be the one, the one you´re waiting on

‘Cause nobody wants to be the last one there.
And everyone wants to feel like someone cares.
Someone to love with my life in their hands.
There’s gotta be somebody for me
Ohhhhhh.

Nobody wants to go it on their own
And everyone wants to know they’re not alone.
Somebody else that feels the same somewhere?
There’s gotta be somebody for me out there.

Nobody wants to be the last one there [When you’re lookin’ for]
And everyone wants to feel like someone cares. [Because you never know]
Somebody else that feels the same somewhere? [Make sure you’re holdin’ on]
There’s gotta be somebody for me out there.

Neural Network Engine

Posted on April 10, 2009. Filed under: Programming | Tags: , , , , , |

I was bored. And decided to do something about it. It was long time i did something creative. I thought i should brush up on my programming. So, i took my mini-project(Character Recognition Software using Neural Networks), and decided to expand it, generalize it. I’m talking about neural networks. Neural Networks are amazing things. They mimic biological intelligence. And try to identify patterns and process signals the way living beings do.

The neural network that i used is a simple backpropagation neural network, with a single hidden layer. I created a neural network generating, training, and testing engine. It is graphical, and very easy to understand. Its made in VC++ 2008 Express Edition. My software is in it’s initial stage. So, obviously, there will be a lot of bugs in it. You can teach it to identify and/or classify input patterns. Right now, it’s V1.0.

In this version(V1.0), input patterns are Boolean. That is either 1, or 0. Outputs are real numbers. Graphical output is also used. I will try to allow real valued inputs in the open interval [0,1], in future versions.

And since it is demo version, there will not be any file opens/saves involved. All inputs are entered manually on all program loads.

As a simple example, i have included a screenshot of the software below. In this run, i taught the neural network to act as a virtual 2 to 4 binary decoder. In the figure, the engine has completed reading inputs, training of network, testing for one pattern, and has generated the output for that pattern. And the output you see here is for the input pattern = 1,0

0,0 — decodes to -> 1,0,0,0

0,1 — decodes to -> 0,1,0,0

1,0 — decodes to -> 0,0,1,0

1,1 — decodes to -> 0,0,0,1

Neural Network Info(Current version)

Type : Simple 3-layer back-propagation network

Threshold function used : Sigmoid function f(x)=1/(1+e^(-x)) 

Number of layers : Input+Hidden+Output = 3

Current Version’s Maximum Capacity : 300 nodes/layer

Compiler : VC++ 2008 Express Edition

Memory Allocation : Static

Default network values are of the one used in my character recognition software. You can change the values to suit your requirements, and press the ‘create’ , and ‘initialize’ button to create new network.

Shadow of the day

Posted on April 2, 2009. Filed under: Music |

I close both locks below the window.

I close both blinds and turn away.

Sometimes solutions aren’t so simple.

Sometimes goodbye’s the only way.

 

And the sun will set for you,

The sun will set for you.

And the shadow of the day,

Will embrace the world in grey,

And the sun will set for you.

 

Pink cards and flowers on your window,

Your friends all plead for you to stay.

Sometimes beginnings aren’t so simple.

Sometimes goodbye’s the only way.

 

And the sun will set for you,

The sun will set for you.

And the shadow of the day,

Will embrace the world in grey,

And the sun will set for you.

 

And the shadow of the day,

Will embrace the world in grey,

And the sun will set for you.

 

[Guitar solo]

 

And the shadow of the day,

Will embrace the world in grey,

And the sun will set for you.
