WinMsg - A Quick Messaging Utility For Hopefully Any Modern Windows Version


Introduction

After getting fed up with figuring out how to make the msg app work among 64-bit Windows 7 computers in my work-area LAN, I finally decided to make my own open source "net send" or "msg" utility. I dubbed it WinMsg and I deployed it among my colleagues for testing and adoption. I developed it in VB6 so it's not really a complicated app. I can even publish the source code among these pages, eventually though. For now, making the source code available through a download would suffice. I can see it work with most modern versions of Windows, which are Windows 2000 and later. This brave declaration includes Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, etc., but I never made any extensive platform tests, however.

Download

I'll be updating this article eventually but in the meantime, here are the downloadables.
  1. WinMsg Setup.exe (1.5 MB, MD5 checksum afbfda7f7a3bf588cc5e2f513fc08183)

  2. WinMsg Source.rar (4.66 KB, MD5 checksum c99cf8c5a00e293080d1d766bb78a7d0)
    WinMsg source code.

Software License

I am hereby releasing it with a GPL license, and the specifications of which can be found at http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html. In the interest of non-committal "absolvency", I reserve the right to modify the license of my future revisions of this project. I'll still stick with community-based open source distribution initiatives though.

Commentary Speculations on the Negative Side of Big Data

"If subsequent technological advancement and business processing models development make it possible for Big Data processing in becoming commonplace, it would be fair to speculate that corresponding technologies may also emerge that could have the capacity to poison big data for malicious purposes." -Loloy D
