English-Khmer Chemistry Dictionary

For a long time, I tried to make English-Khmer chemistry dictionary to help Khmer students. I setup a WIKI at http://zischem.wikispaces.com ask students to fill it with chemistry terms. In the beginning, it was progressing very well. However, after some time, students stopped entering new words and project stopped. When I began this project, I promised my students that I will release dictionary as a software and put the name of most contributing students to about box of software. I was waiting for WIKI to mature. I found out that this is not going happen soon. Therefore, Today I give you Jericho my dictionary software. I know there are some bad entries or poor translations. However, I don’t know which ones and I hope someone who knows Khmer, English and some Chemistry edit the WIKI and fix those errors. If people start editing the WIKI, I may release updated version of this software. Anyway, I hope you like the software.

PS: Software only works on Windows. If dictionary matures, I will release iOS version :)

Cracking RSA-2048(not really)

Another boring day and another tinkering post. For couple of days I was just resting at home and learning new stuff about computers especially programming. When I was tinkering with my old Dreambox 800, I found a cool plugin named AirPlayer. It turns your Dreambox to Apple TV so that you can stream the media on your iPhone to your box easily. However there was one problem. Cool features aren’t enabled unless we pay. Continue reading

CCcam Line Tester

During my holiday, I wrote a small utility for my own usage. It allows you to check CCcam details. Because I was tired of using CCcam to check username and password. Frankly I also don’t trust some websites which allow you to check your CCcam details. Therefore I coded one program for myself called CCcam Suite. This software allows you to check your CCcam details. It achieves this by doing exactly how CCcam does. More information is in the readme file.

However he said that subtitles has kind a brown color and very hard to read. First of all I tried to go to its website but I couldn’t find any firmware or information about my model. After some Google search and Archive Way back machine, I achieved to find latest firmware for my model. I tried to update it through system menu but it didn’t work. I have found couple of methods to update media players which has Realtek chips.

Goodbye Cambodia

Empty word document is staring at me and I don’t know what to write. I am going back to Turkey on 2nd of July 20:25 and I am full of emotions. However, it is hard to express it with my poor vocabulary. I wish we could upload our emotions but, unless someone really intelligent finds a solution (winks to himself) you are stuck with my poor English. I will leave the drama behind and talk about the good things that I remember. I will write it at once so don’t expect structure, grammar or any sense at all. Anyway here it goes…

Having fun with crypto

, , , ,

I don’t write much in my blog because I don’t have some interesting stories to share. Today I am kind a bored and want to talk about some old story. I want to talk about some crypto, security and Gangnam style in a single post. As you know, Gangnam style video was my inspiration to prank students. After I have pranked them in their presentation, I was looking something big. It had to be something that should affect everybody in the school and yet it shouldn’t be tracked back to me. Challenge accepted!

Adding PIN to Evernote

Tags

, ,

I like Evernote. It is multi-platform, convenient and supported by many software. However there is one feature that bugs me a lot. It has almost zero security.Tech savvy user can open your database and see your notes if they are sitting on your computer. Any simple sqlite reader can read the database. You can protect yourself against these attacks by encrypting your notes. However after you logged in and minimized Evernote, it doesn’t ask you password again when you try to open it again. Evernote has a PIN feature in its mobile clients. I just can’t understand the logic why they don’t add PIN feature to Windows version. I at least want to have some kind of security. Therefore I added PIN feature to Evernote.

LG TV Hack

I always wanted to control all my devices with single remote control. Actually remote control of my satellite receiver, Dreambox DM800, is an universal remote control. However mine is old one so it doesn’t have the code of my LG TV. Actually remote can be programmed with JP1 cable. However the cable itself is more expensive than my remote control. During my holiday I was working with my receiver. I installed couple of iPhone applications to remotely control the receiver. It is actually very cool to control your receiver with the phone. However one thing was missing; controlling the TV.
