CATminer – A portless multi-platform monitor

CATminer is the result of a lot of people from the private sector asking me for a multi-platform monitoring/controlling solution for multiple types of cryptocurrency miners that is both easy to use and easy to maintain. It’s designed for the average user to download and instantly have access to mining software that can be automatically updated and configured remotely if needed.

CATminer’s portless design is intuitive enough to allow you to monitor your miners as well as control them without forwarding any ports or dealing with routers/networks. You simply copy and past a 6 character code and you’re synced up!


There are two pricing models for CATminer to satisfy both types of miners. For the small home miner, the developer fee is 1% of mining every 24 hours. For the large mining farm maintainers that would rather not pay a percentage in mining, can pay a monthly fee ($10) for unlimited use of all current and future supported miners by simply contacting me. You’re free to choose whichever payment method you feel is fair.

The monitor and miner are integrated in the same program so CATminer can run multiple times on the same machine if you need a monitor and a miner. Clicking the cat within CATminer will provide you with a one-time use code (ex. XXX-XXX) that can be used to link to another CATminer monitor.

Currently, there’s a couple of planned features (aside from supporting more custom miners) that I want to add to CATminer that should make it easier to use including a mobile app (iOS, Android) as well as API’s and AI Integrations for messengers like Telegram and Facebook Messenger. I’m also testing out a practical way to make it seamlessly work with Google Assistant so you can control your miners wherever there is Google.

Auto-updating CATminer currently only works on Windows.

scrshot.io – Fast Screenshots!

scrshot.io is a web service and multi-platform app that makes it easier and much more simple to take screenshots and share them with everyone. Imagine dragging a box across your screen and instantly having a shareable URL to send to someone less than a second later! Here it is on Product Hunt!

scrshot is free and runs on Windows / Mac / Linux and can be downloaded at scrshot.io. It has a plethora of useful options that help you make it run just exactly how you like it. If you have the Auto-Upload switch checked than every time you snap a screenshot the image will be automatically uploaded to the server, providing you with a URL that you can share to someone publically (ex. https://scrshot.io/ZZ).

All non-encrypted images let you hotlink to them directly if you just need the image file. The encryption feature lets you secure your image so that only the people with the private key/password can ever see it.

For encrypting your images, we use randomly salted AES-256 with a key/password you provide. It’s encrypted before ever being uploaded so that when it’s on the server, no one can view it without that special key you provided. The encryption option also provides you with an instantly shareable URL as well (that reveals the key/password) so you can send it off privately.

Take Care of the Proper Paperwork

Take Care of the Paperwork is a relatively fast-paced tapping management game. I’ve been told it plays similar to Papers, Please. The idea is pretty simplistic as all you have to do is file the paperwork in their proper categories/bins.

 

 

 

 

As soon as you pull a file out, you’re tasked with certain things you need to do in order to file that paperwork properly. Sign it, stamp it, staple it, fill it out or just file it in the right cabinet. Seems pretty simple at first, until you start running out of time and need to file more than 100 papers in labelled bins.

This game is 100% free and has a little incentive for the ADMIN in-app purchase that isn’t required at all.

You can download it for android here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.qberty.tcotp

 

PS Vita VPK Editor [UPDATE 1.2]

Hey there folks, I decided to make a simple cross-platform application to help users modify their VPK files thematically. My VPK Editor was designed to help you change up the graphic assets of your VPK’s livearea/icon.

FEATURES:

  • Opens any VPK file designed for the PS Vita
  • Let’s you change the icon, the livearea icon, and the livearea background image
  • Automatically converts the images (from JPEG or PNG) to the correct bit-depth (8 bit) supported by the PS Vita
  • Mai Dump ZIP support

 
 
DOWNLOAD:

VPK Editor 1.2 for Windows (2155 downloads)

VPK Editor 1.2 for Mac (324 downloads)

VPK Editor 1.2 for Linux (387 downloads)

VPK Editor 1.2 for Linux 64 (468 downloads)

CHANGELOG:

— Version 1.2 —

  • Fixed squared window bug. (uses a widescreen friendly window size)
  • Added basic support for modifying the template XML

— Version 1.1 —

  • Added Mai Dump ZIP support. You can now change the graphics of VPK’s and Dumps!

If there’s enough interest, I’ll continue to work on adding more features to it (like editing the template.xml with your own text).

Dating Apps

logos

You’re probably asking yourself what I’m working on now after having released a lot of non-utility apps. I know you’re not asking yourself anything. I’m providing indirect exposition for this vague post that will (in the end) not even give you any detail about it.

Anyway, right now I’m working on a dating app. Yeah yeah, Tinder already exists, and PlentyOfFish is eating everything up. The problem with the dating apps of today is that they focus on increasing the number of people you match with, rather than trying to increase interaction with whoever you match. I’m going to take the opposite approach and see if I can create an intuitive way to engage people to talk to each other in a more meaningful way. Instead of dealing with swiping right or tapping like, you should base your judgment on how engaged the person is when in the conversation.

There are a couple different mechanics I’m going to be playing with to achieve this while sacrificing the old’ rapid-fire matchup scheme, which is just not long term. Maybe that’s what you’re looking for. In that case, this should definitely be a fun app to use. Stay tuned.
