    This is the last update. Server will be shutdown within the next weeks.
    The tool will be released with sourcecode.

    Changelog
    - removed the whole encryption (the db is only packed with gzip)
    - removed rap button timeout

    For future use I would recommend someone puts in an edit button, and writes a small windows service to share the db via p2p. (still requires a server to forward ip’s and to keep the chat up)

    Edit:
    As promised the last raw submits that have been submitted since the last db update.

      Because it wastes my energy and bandwidth .
      Also the guy who was maintaining the db doesn't have time anymore.

      Going open source means anyone can take over and keep it running. So that's the good news...

      The problem with XP is that its effectively been discontinued now, most of the pre-req software is no longer updated which would mean having to support extremely legacy code, XP in itself is a security risk anyway and users should be encouraged to replce it where possible, no doubt it can probably be done its worth considering the effort required, i'm not a "programmer" but i have done some web development and from that alone i know you really have to draw a line on support for older systems because it severely limits what you can or cant do as some features won't work on XP.

      It was connecting to localhost, so i don't care. Feel free to rewrite it. Actually there is no dbms needed at all. You Can directly write to a file in the correct format. Much more efficient than stupid mysql.

      Not the case here... it's as simple as targetting an older .NET Framework version, as the application currently does not take advantage of any newer features at all.

      Sure but atleast the newer versions will still get security updates, microsoft won't bother fixing any new holes in XP to them its dead and buried, it was supposed to have been killed off long before it was but due to vista its support lifecycle was extended, so it had a longer run than it was even meant to

      Its still the case, it means you can't "add" features that reply on the system not running an up to date version of the framework, which either means 2 versions, one with the new additions and one without, or you have to ignore the new feature completely because you have to support a legacy OS

      It would be like me saying you could still code it to work on win2k if you really really wanted, i seriously doubt anyone is going to go through the hassle of trying to QA it though :P

      I don't even know anyone who still actually uses XP so even if i were to try to support it i have no machine to test it on without installing a VM

      Sadly a file is highly inefficient when it comes to access speed, MySQL beats it hands down for performance and speed when it comes to searching for anything, sadly i don't have the skills to update and maintain the rest, PHP is about my limits on that front so i could handle the web side but not the actual application itself

      Windows XP is still getting updates, they're just not public. You can steal the updates that Windows Embedded Industry devices are still getting and apply them to XP until 2019 since they are based on XP's SP3. So no, it's not Win2K. Besides XP's user base was the largest of any Windows OS, no matter what MS wants it will be around for a long time yet...

      Unless those updates also include adding new frameworks and support to the OS it still doesn't really help, them being non-public also means that very few people will actually even look for them, companies either have, or are planning to drop support, as far as most of the world is concerned the OS is dead and thats something we can all agree on, just because something "can" be done doesn't mean it "should" be done, personally i would drop XP support in a heartbeat, and while i agree that it "was" the largest user base, that is no longer the case after Windows 7 showed up, yes we can all agree that Vista was not the greatest release in the world :P

      Not to mention with windows 9 already in beta we're moving even further and further away from XP, supporting legacy systems is not fun

      It's not a point of just updating the OS, there are far more costly concerns such as licensing of any software used, compatibility issues on a new platform etc.
      Not to mention MS Office and IE compatibility issues due to macro's/vb scripts etc no longer working between versions

      The costs can be huge for businesses that have a large software estate etc that all need to be updated.

      Some of the worlds major financial institutes and energy suppliers etc are still running XP.

      How many business are going to want to run PSNStuff though :P

      Outside of that very few home users will still be running XP and those are the target market for an application like this, so personally i see no issue with dumping support for XP from this app

      It was used to store fingerprints like this: 643C-0F84-F0F3-7990-F88C-133E-9423-62A0
      The tool was calculating hashs of this type, based on hardware ID's, to reliably identify machines.
      In case someone would have started flooding via submit, I could have banned the machine.

      I also forget to mention that I've removed the vm restrictions. So the tool can be run in virtual machines again.

      And that right there is the point. The people running PSNStuff are the same group of people that are willing and able to hack into those XP updates, they aren't average know-nothing consumers (or businesses).

      Windows 9 may be in Alpha/Beta, but that does not mean that people running XP can somehow magically update to it. They are likely constrained by money, even if they are pirates, they still need to buy new hardware.

      Lots of old PCs are getting thrown out while they could still be useful... Microsoft could put out a new OS for the low-end devices with a much lower required spec. Obviously it would be missing lots of shiny features, but it would be a modern, updated OS. Though I guess that's too smart a move for MS, might as well just use one of the many Linux distros specifically for low end or old machines.

      Yeah I could have... and likely would have had, had this unfortunate News hadn't broke here... Kinda wonder why it hasn't hit that other PS3 Hacking Website yet?
      But, if its going Open Source, and hopefully p2p for the Database File. Then why must we still limit ourselves to using Windows? I'd prefer to be on Linux. Shamefully it seems like all the Dump Checkers, and Auto Patchers are again only on Windows. I don't have a problem with that per-say. But, hopefully this will cause some movement for those that wish to move away from MicroSoft products. Since XP is now stone dead, and Windows 8 sucks a Bag of Dicks. Windows 7 will most definitely be my last MicroSoft OS. As even if MicroSoft manage to recover enough good sense to make 9 a success... It'll be to late in my opinion, Given the fact that they're no longer gonna sell you a Stand Alone Office 20xx. And if O365, is to be on the 'net and accessible to the IoT's. Then what would I want Windows 9 for? When I can (or should be able to), access said O365 from a Linux Terminal running FireFox?

      Jea the whole internet cares what you think about OSes .

      Open source doesnt mean it now magicly works on linux. Its made with .net, a MS framework, so you cant realy compile it to work on linux, somebody has to re-write it with another linux-friendly language.

      (but my gues would be, that as it is probably works with wine with added .net components)

      Free hosting and domain would end you up with a non-working site. Free hosters will take a site down for any reason... I doubt Sony likes PSNStuff very much.

      Exactly what I think and if this happen, the database gets lost unless we have a backup. My point here is I am fine recoding everything required, I am just not up to give much time everyday to support this.

      Here is where I am at right now. This is made in Java, so yes it will works on all OS (Windows, Mac, Linux).

      Even if nobody cares. I've accidentally disabled the "save rap" button permanent.
      To fix this add an else statement to the code and recompile.

      Code:
                  //rapbutton
                  string rapbutton = dataGridView1.CurrentRow.Cells["rapdata"].Value.ToString();
                  if (rapbutton == " " || rapbutton == "")
                  {
                      button2.Enabled = false;
                  }
