Articles of various types. What else can I say?
There's recently been a lot of fuss about WM_TIMER
and "the windows API being broken", due to this article
and this bugtraq post
. Among other postulates, it is claimed that this is an unfixable bug. I've looked into the stuff a bit, and even come up with a couple of (ok, halfbaked) solutions.
Some ramblings around the various Win32 memory allocation APIs. Rather incomplete, needs some fixing up, and probably have a few errors here and there... but might be informative anyway. Inspired by some stubborn and uninformed posts at a messageboard.
Most people don't know how to search properly when using softice. Searching the entire 4G virtual process space is slow and can give a lot of false hits. Read this wonderful essay and prosper.
c4ffeine has made a good softice reference. Read this before asking stupid questions, please.
An article about EXE compression, data handling, DLLs and related issues. Written after a rather ugly flamewar on the win32asm messageboard. This article should be rather objective and have technical arguments. I hope :). Read it before your neighbor, you might learn something, or be able to teach me some stuff.
