What Happened to the KProbe Website?

Postby CDRecorder on Thu Aug 21, 2003 12:58 am

When I go to http://karr.myweb.hinet.net, there are no links for KProbe, Ltnflash, Minfo, or firmware updates. Did the KProbe web site change to another address?

I assume you have read this:

He hasn't confirmed or denied, but my interpretation is that he have gotten into some trouble at work for making the utilities available. :( I hope not, first for his sake, and second for ours.

No, I hadn't seen that information. I really hope he isn't in trouble. :(

He is, unfortunately. I was asked to remove LtnFlash from my page. Hopefully KProbe isn't frowned upon by superiors...

I'm really sorry to hear that, both for Karr and for everyone else. :cry:

I'm also unhappy that you were asked to remove LtnFlash. :evil:

Damn. Must have been something to do with the RPC issues. What a shame.

I agree. I would rather that LtnFlash was released without the RPC feature than not have LtnFlash at all. :cry:

I believe that it was more of an issue with the Read/Write EEPROM feature...

I haven't followed the LtnFlash issue at all. What is/was so dangerous/problematic about the EEPROM flashing/reading that it caused the withdrawal of this feature?

Please enlighten me, I'm out of the loop.

thanks,

Lite-On forced Karr to shut down his website:

would somebody please e-mail me the final versions of MInfo (1.6 I think) and the flash tool (the version *WITH* the eeprom flash ability) please? I never got around to downloading them before this happened :cry:

THANKS! :D

edit: Thanks guys! I received *SO* many responses on this one! I now have both programs :D
