[User Picture]06:49 pm - Making a Windows Service isn't that hard...
...managed to port that source code from earlier to a Windows Service that behaves correctly, though it only supports Start/Stop, I couldn't think of a sane state to handle Pause/Resume since there's no solid answer to 'should a web server finish existing requests, close existing requests, or just 'hang' existing requests when paused?' that I could find.

Still, pleased with myself, now to work on a DNS filter that'll automatically integrate itself into the existing network stack, and then integrate that with the main program so it'll be a single executable/service to deal with. Then comes the hard part: Adding configuration screens to adding new domain-names to block like this.

I think there might actually be a market for this sort of thing, if I can manage to make it not break corporate Windows networking's wierd DNS requirements and what-not.10 commentsLeave a comment
