virtual console strip

I’m really proud to announce the NastyVCS virtual console strip which finally brings the beloved “nasty” signal coloration series onto the next level.

FerricTDS 1.5 beta, when?

I’m currently preparing the bits for the upcoming FerricTDS beta test. Since this beta is going to be public nobody needs to apply for joining the party, just come back here during the next days or so, pick up a copy and have a ride with it (and give feedback of course). The version number jumps from 1.0.2 straight to 1.5 which indicates some vast improvements under the hood. I’m already really excited about this one.
