There are two modes: Text and Picture. Set the mode. Set the on-screen time (1 - 50 ms), the time between flashes (2 - 30 sec) and the message font darkness/picture darkness and let the program run in the background.

PHP - 5.2.1

PHP is a server-side, cross-platform, HTML embedded scripting language. If you are new to PHP and want to get some idea of how it works, try the introductory tutorial. After that, check out the online manual, and the example archive sites and some of the other resources available in the links section.

What's new in this version:

Security Enhancements and Fixes in PHP 5.2.1:

* Fixed possible safe_mode & open_basedir bypasses inside the session extension.
* Prevent search engines from indexing the phpinfo() page.
* Fixed a number of input processing bugs inside the filter extension.
* Fixed unserialize() abuse on 64 bit systems with certain input strings.
* Fixed possible overflows and stack corruptions in the session extension.
* Fixed an underflow inside the internal sapi_header_op() function.
* Fixed allocation bugs caused by attempts to allocate negative values in some code paths.
* Fixed possible stack overflows inside zip, imap & sqlite extensions.
* Fixed several possible buffer overflows inside the stream filters.
* Fixed non-validated resource destruction inside the shmop extension.
* Fixed a possible overflow in the str_replace() function.
* Fixed possible clobbering of super-globals in several code paths.
* Fixed a possible information disclosure inside the wddx extension.
* Fixed a possible string format vulnerability in *print() functions on 64 bit systems.
* Fixed a possible buffer overflow inside mail() and ibase_{delete,add,modify}_user() functions.
* Fixed a string format vulnerability inside the odbc_result_all() function.
* Memory limit is now enabled by default.
* Added internal heap protection.
* Extended filter extension support for $_SERVER in CGI and apache2 SAPIs.

The majority of the security vulnerabilities discovered and resolved can in most cases be only abused by local users and cannot be triggered remotely. However, some of the above issues can be triggered remotely in certain situations, or exploited by malicious local users on shared hosting setups utilizing PHP as an Apache module. Therefore, we strongly advise all users of PHP, regardless of the version to upgrade to 5.2.1 release as soon as possible. PHP 4.4.5 with equivalent security corrections is available as well.

The key improvements of PHP 5.2.1 include:

* Several performance improvements in the engine, streams API and some Windows specific optimizations.
* PDO_MySQL now uses buffered queries by default and emulates prepared statements to bypass limitations of MySQL's prepared statement API.
* Many improvements and enhancements to the filter and zip extensions.
* Memory limit is now always enabled, this includes Windows builds, with a default limit of 128 megabytes.
* Added several performance optimizations using faster Win32 APIs (this change means that PHP no longer supports Windows 98).
* FastCGI speed optimized build of PHP for Windows made available for downloading.
* Over 180 bug fixes.

OSXFlex2D - 1.9

OSXFlex2D is a program that implements the "elastic" , "flexural" model. Crustal loads can be entered and plotted, the profile of deformation produced by these loads can be computed and visualized, and the effect of changes in model parameters can be evaluated at real time. Geologists often talk about the "flexural" link between tectonic loads and sedimentary basins, but they rarely do the math. Perhaps, because implementing the "flexural" model is tedious, specially if it is done in spreadsheets. OSXFlex2D makes "flexural modeling" an easy and enjoyable task.

What's new in this version:

Fix minor glitches when resizing document windows and dropping text files into the Loads table.

Simple Comic - 0.9.1

Simple Comic was written for one specific task, viewing comics, nothing more nothing less.

* Two page layout: Pages are laid out side by side, as they would be in print. This is a rather common feature, but its implementation is generally terrible. Most applications do not take into account the aspect ratio of each individual page. When a two page spread is displayed three pages are usually on screen at once, which is just plain annoying.
* Archive handling: Never have to decompress another comic archive. Simple Comic can seamlessly deal with .cbr, .cbz, .zip and .rar files.
* Pick up where you left off: Feel free to exit Simple Comic as your session will be restored the next time it is opened.
* Alternate page ordering: Pages can be layed out either left to right or right to left.
* Pre-defined image height: Instead of forcing to user to zoom in or out initially or worse, on each page, Simple Comic allows the user to set a default image height. Every page viewed thereafter will be scaled prior to being displayed.
* Simplicity: Does not attempt to be all things to all people. Features are not added unless they actually improve the user's experience.

What's new in this version:

* Open multiple sessions simultaneously
* Sessions are saved when app exits and restored at launch
* Image list can be viewed in fullscreen mode
* Thumbnail previews
* Two page mode can be disabled
* Keyboard shortcuts have been changed
