dump error ! (slic table not found ! )

Does anyone know what process this message is triggered by?

It is obviously a BIOS image dumping/editing program, so I don't need to be told that. I am more interested in the exact program that generates this error.

The study of SLIC/SLP table manipulation is a topic on www.tempusfugit.cs

The website and get_iplayer.exe

The infradead website seems to be down.

I still use get_iplayer.exe on a daily basis so no changes have been made by the BBC in the last wee while. The question is, "what if they do in the future?"

I have all the code and have made extensive analysis of it. Last time that it broke I had a workaround before there was one on the "Get_iPlayer Lives" site.

Unless the BBC make extensive changes to the way that they provide iPlayer programming it is presumed that the current method I use will continue to work. If it does change I will have to find another workaround or fix the code myself.

No doubt the enterprising torrent sites will be a source of the last working version of get_iplayer. It will also be an opportunity for those same people to attempt to sell you something you weren't bargaining for when you make your downloads.

More false advertizing for TurboTax

What FutureShop say on their website for TurboTax Basic edition:

"Perfect for people with simple returns consisting only of T4 slips and charitable donations"

Nonsense!  I have used the Basic package for the last 4 years to file returns with Flow-Through deductions (100% write-off), investment and business income.

The demise of the Filecrop website

Some time back I came across the Filecrop website and I think that my assessment was that it was a scam.

I may have been overly harsh in this assessment and maybe it was just a failed attempt of SEO on the part of the site authors in an attempt of providing a service for those looking for illusive torrents.

The bottom line is that the filecrop website address no longer resolves and visitors are finding my page on my website. I am now interested in knowing if there are disgruntled subscribers of the service.
