Olof Lagerkvist, the well known author of the popular ImDisk has released an open source virtual SCSI driver.

With that driver, you can mount a virtual disk which will be seen as physical disk by windows.
This vritual disk will appear as a disk in your devices but also in your disk management console.
Read more here.

Being quite enthusiast about this driver, I have decided to come up with a GUI named ImgMount, read more here.

A person (which I believe is the author of another similar product, thus that other product is nagware and /or payware versus Tiny PXE Server being fully freeware) has been truly harrassing / spamming me over the last days claiming the ownership (if not copyright) around the kernel parameters I used for Ubuntu Live booting (cifs, nfs, etc) in previous articles.

I will recommend this page if you wish to understand more about which kernel parameter does what.

I consider syntax around products like grub4dos, syslinux, ipxe, distros kernels to be public knowledge and therefore free for everyone to copy paste, modify, re use.
Actually there are tons of forums and web sites out there experimenting and sharing findings and knowledge about this.
Some of my favorite forums being http://reboot.pro or iPxe.

Any dev guy claiming copyright over this syntax would (IMHO) look like a fool.

I will not approve comments over my blog around this topic.
Why? Because I can.

I purposedly will not mention or quote that guy harassing me simply.
Why? Because I do not want to encourage such behaviors and because that person does not deserved to be mentionned.

Topic closed…

Description

SwiftSearch is a lightweight program whose purpose is to help you quickly find the files you need on your Windows machine without ever requiring you to index your drives. Most search utilities that achieve similar speeds do so by indexing drives while the computer is idle, but because idleness detection is so difficult to get right, in practice they end up slowing down the whole system just to speed up search. SwiftSearch works differently: given administrator privileges, it completely bypasses the file system (only NTFS supported) and reads the file table directly every time, which speeds up search by many orders of magnitude. Typically searches yield full results in ~10 seconds or less, a significant speedup for many users. As a bonus, this program also supports path-based search (for example, you can search for « *Program*\Windows* »), regular expressions (just start the search name with ‘>’ character), and full directory sizes. Its goal is to be simple, swift, and intuitive to use.
