Hey there! Seems you've stumbled upon my little dwelling. Most pleased
to make acquaintance.
I'm dcb, an oncoming high school senior from Minnesota with a captivation for
the lights and sounds of yesterday's tomorrow. I like bumbling with technology,
programming, and photography. I poke at a lot of things outside that realm
though, so it'd be
tough to narrow it down to a few. I made this site to house more of that stuff.
Pardon the messy cabling as I continue to figure out where to go with this site.
You might have noticed a lot has changed here! Pages that have been
knocking around for weeks were finally touched up a bit and added, and I've consolidated the navigation some so things should be a little less unruly.
Now with wma or mp3 transcoding, winvid lets you download YouTube videos
to watch on old PCs, and in the future, your Wii!
It's still currently hosted on Repl.it, so the Wii's Internet Channel is
not supported yet (HTTPS...), but it works great in RetroZilla and Opera Mini
(on Windows Mobile). I'll look into getting it onto DreamHost soon. Until then,
contact me with feedback or things to fix.
I made some minor adjustments to a Windows Mobile IRC client so that it
would work on my non-touchscreen Moto Q 9h. It's still fairly buggy but if you're
tired of wmirc's registration nagging, here's another option.
An archive for a host of applications to run on Windows 2000 machines and later!
Use taskkill /IM
in the Run box or CMD to kill a process without having to open Task Manager.
Under the US International keyboard layout, to type
¿ hold down Right Alt
(Alt Gr) and press /.
To stop Windows and programs like ProxHTTPSProxy (when
in use with Escargot) from beeping your PC speaker:
sc stop beep
sc config beep start= disabled
Robocopy backup script:
for /f "tokens=2 delims==" %%G in ('wmic os get localdatetime /value') do
Backups\%COMPUTERNAME" /MIR /MT:32 /W:5
mirrors the directories (Any files in the destination WILL BE DELETED,
be careful to use this with a brand new folder) /MT:32 copies files with 32 threads /W:1 waits 1 second between retries (if
a file is inexistent, or access is denied) /R:10 retries 10 times before giving up
(Robocopy's default is 1000, and that could really hold things up when the
files you're getting stuck on are cache or temp files/most of the time!)
My Discord tag is metalynx#4537, though I might
not accept your request unless I know you well.
You can send me an email at
On Escargot, I'm firstname.lastname@example.org,
where contacts are largely open.
My AIM Phoenix screenname
is dotcomboom. I don't use it a ton, but when I do
I use AIM Lite on Windows 10, and 5.x on earlier systems.
