MailWrench - MailSend's Heir Apparent

Jim Lawless
I had been supporting MailSend for about fourteen years. I had regularly fixed bugs and added a feature here or there. It was showing its age regarding modern mail agents that could leverage secure SSL connections to SMTP servers. I had written up a document on using the open source program STunnel as an intermediary between MailSend and SMTP/SSL servers, but that just seemed to be very kludgy. It was kludgy and I was taking money for a program and telling people how to use a free program to get more out of it.

ScreenKap - Command-Line Screen Capture

Jim Lawless
The next product that I wrote was a simple command-line screen capture utility called ScreenKap. It was written in C. It used the same graphics library that I had purchased for WallShow and WallMake. ScreenKap existed in two forms; a console mode application and a Windows UI application. The UI application didn’t really have a user interface … it just didn’t bring up a dark console window while trying to capture the screen contents.
