GUI interface using VB to track a killer’s IP Address is available

At last, somebody did it. Somebody finally did it. Yes, somebody actually wrote a GUI interface using VB to track an IP Address. If you have no idea what I’m referring to, you aren’t watching enough TV, buddy. Here, watch this clip from CSI, a show that makes every geek cringe.

We don’t know if she succeeded in creating one (although we doubt given how computer literate she is), one CodePlex developer did it.

“This program makes it easier to track an IP address. It provides a GUI interface using Visual Basic to track an IP Address.”, the program description reads.


The program is actually coded in Visual Basic and uses the PING command to track the killer's entered IP/domain name. All sorts of fluff are used to provide a very CSI-like experience, like showing hex output, flashy images, and success/failure counters.

  1. I remember watching that. Not only did I cringe I also yelled at the screen and turned the TV off. Suspend belief, fine, output pure garbage and I leave.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
