VUndo Virus

Infected Windows PC at work. Some clueless user “caught” the VUndo.F variant leading to NTdetect not found and eternal reboot cycle.

First locate copy of WinXP cd, then boot from cd and repair the installation. This will at least lead to a bootable PC which is still infected with the Trojan VUndo.

Usually files Rundll32.exe, iExplore.exe are infected. An infected dll (in my case named “nohiyizi.dll”) was present in \system32\. VUndo does not allow other processes to create directories; it will delete these right after creation. Thus installation of anti...Continue Reading »

U.S. President does not know how to use a computer.

That’s a preview of the headlines around the world if Mr McCain is elected. Considering that the U.S is (still) a global technological leader, this is just the kind of headline that is sure to inspire confidence and let pesky upstart nations know who is in charge, right? Here’s John McCain in a recent interview for Yahoo, responding to the question of whether he prefers a PC or MAC with the following answer:

“Neither. I’m an illiterate that has to rely on my wife for all of the assistance I can get.” (John McCain on whether he prefers a PC or MAC computer.)

Other languages

I fully support that EVERYONE on this planet should be able to understand one common language, in addition to whatever native language that person happens to be born into. English is an ideal common second language everyone can share, because it is simple to learn, yet powerful enough to express most ideas. In addition, chance has made English the language of diplomacy and science at the end of the 20th century. That’s essentially why I write this in English. BUT, if you have some attachment to another tongue (e.g. Chinese, German, French, Russian, etc.) amuse yourself by clicking on one...Continue Reading »

Keeping up with IT

It’s not a simple task to stay current with the cutting edge of IT. There is a lot of hype mixed in with some truly noteworthy developments. It’s tricky do decide which is which. I find it useful to have a number of news feeds set up via Google Reader and to check these frequently. One site that is particularly handy in this regard is, as resource for designers and developers. Of the ...Continue Reading »

Microsoft Flight Simulator X Update Service Pack 1 – Get it now

In keeping with established Microsoft traditions, it has released a complete re-build of the Flight Simulator X (FSX) game engine, humbly dubbed "Service Pack 1", that now makes the simulation usable and great fun for the first time. On my game PC (dual-core 2GHz Intel processor, 2GB RAM, 256 NVidia Graphics Card) the performance enhancement is at least a factor of two. Turns out that Microsoft added multi-core support and optimized DirectX calls throughout the simulation. The original FSX sucked badly. "Sucked" is a technical programming term but means the same as the street...Continue Reading »

Borland Delphi

As a follow-up to a previous post about programming and my preference for Delphi as the "best" programming environment, I just found this jewel: A completely free and blazingly fast programmer’s text editor that was coded in…you guessed it: Delphi. Called ConTEXT, this baby does syntax highlighting of just about any programming language ever invented, has on-the-fly multi-language support, support for UTF8, macro support...Continue Reading »

Personal programming history

One of the things that you’ll have to pick up when studying Physics is programming. When I started my undergraduate education in the early 1980′s, the University of Heidelberg in Germany which I attended at the time, offered some programming electives which were terrible. You sat in front of a terminal that was connected to some kind of mainframe and tried to somehow convince the thing to run some code snippets. All output was text based and FORTRAN was the language of choice in those days and I was rather turned off by the whole experience. A couple of years earlier Commodore had...Continue Reading »

Windows VISTA…why?

When MS introduced Vista I toyed with writing an industrial automation application on this "new and exciting" XP update. I immediately found out that hardware drivers, especially such drivers that you’d need for industrial applications, e.g., I/O interface card drivers, multi-serial card drivers, are NOT supported under Vista. Thus after playing with Vista for a while and familiarizing myself with it’s ‘advantages’ I dropped my plans of migrating to this platform. This was about 8 months ago. Meanwhile I’ve had only negative experiences with Vista…the...Continue Reading »

Exchange Server message: Host unreachable

One of our older Servers runs MS Exchange Server 5.5, which is ancient, but very reliable.  A while back users started to complain that their e-mails were returned as undeliverable. When checking the logs I found that most messages were returned with a “Host unreachable” message. The Internet Mail Service outbound queue filled up and none of the messages got delivered. A simple telnet test showed that the hosts were reachable but the old Exchange 5.5 Server for some unknown reason refused to deliver anything. Googling “Exchange Host Unreachable” revealed a ...Continue Reading »
