Happy New Year

Thanks for stopping by this year. I hope I have helped some of you out with the programs/information I have provided. As always I wish I had posted more but things always seem to get in the way. I will be planning on posting more next year. If you can think of any topics or programs that would be nice to see/have then shoot me an email and we can discuss them mark dot mckinnon at sbcglobal dot net.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy new year.


Updates Before the New Year

Here are a few updates to some of the programs I have provided this year.

Skype Log Parser:

This program will now parse the voicemail logs and report on them. It will also extract some more information about the users. The avatars will also be parsed out and saved to the report directory as well. The program can be found here. I also want to thank the University of New Orleans (Team NSSAL) for using this program in the DC3 Challenge this year, I created the program for my use in the challenge but when I got bogged down with other things I thought I would release it in hopes that someone would use it for the challenge.


I do not recall if I ever released this or not but what what it will do is parse a directory and create a web page with thumbnails of graphics files in it. This program is good if you need to create a file that has graphics that you want to send to someone and be able to put it on a CD/DVD. This program will also read some of the EXIF info for the graphics and output that information as well. The program can be found here.

Internet Parser:

This is the updated google chrome parser with a few more reports and I have also added the option to include Firefox history files as well. With this program if someone had both Firefox and Google Chrome you can add both of there history files to the same database and do 1 reports instead of multiple reports. This program can be found here.

Internet History:

This program reads in the Internet Explorer index.dat, the cookie index.dat and the History index.dat files and will produce reports on them. The reports should be similar to the internet parser program. That program can be found here.

I hope you enjoy all these updated and new programs and that you get quite a bit of use out of them.
