Welcome to Fravia's BLACKBOARD!

(updated January 1999)

[go to the red1997 chronology] ~ [go to the red1998 chronology]
Else just read on, I'll add sporadically some rumblings of mine.

OK, I admit it: I'm sad. The more I visit the scene (and I routinely check all relevant links) the more I notice a creeping commercialisation roaring its ugly head even among us. I cannot understand this: people seem unduly obsessed by the possibility of making personal gains. Even capable reversers are now more and more seeking some sort of 'monetary compensation' for their work. The subliminal effect of those millions of commercial banner ads is maybe taking control of their brains, like in a SF-film. Since I cannot understand this, I'm probably out of touch with the reality. Well, so be it: I'm fed up. My dream was to fullfill the task +ORC entrusted us long ago: "knowledge is now free at last: let's use this for once to our advantage: let's spread real knowledge to anyone that cares. They spread shit ads and fake propaganda, we spread real knowledge. We will win". Yet we are not winning, or at least the other side is winning even more. And I'm tired..


Xmas 1998

Merry whatever and a happy new year to all my readers!

Winter 1998
fravia+s boring rumblings
fravia+'s boring rumblings
(about goebbelsian european propaganda, Clinton's sexual escapades and Iraq bombing)
Na ja... merry Xmas (or Yanucca, or whatever your local ideology is) to all of you... since we are reversers, and since I'm unfortunately editing nice essays, right now, during a barbarical air-attack against a population that has the only fault to live in a different dictatorial system than the ones we ourselves are enjoying, and since my kids are playing with nice new toys in the same room where a TV-set yells an awful sequence of idiotical propaganda in the attempt to cover the images of other kids being bombed and killed by the governments of my American and British friends, I'm afraid I just have to write these words, even if they sound silly and useless... it is just a question of being coherent with my (limited yet still existing) conscience: Nossir: Your wars are not mine. Whatever your obscene propaganda says: your wars are not mine. I'm a reverser, I won't forget anything. You'll pay for these crimes. Sorry, I know politics and web-teachings should be kept well apart... and I always sincerely did great efforts in this sense... but this time it was just a little too much for me. I flipped the moment I heard on CNN the american butcher-in-chief saying that "fortunately there have been no victims among US-citizens"... See: I had to write this small snippet, after all it's a sort of reversing effort as well...

Should we crack or reverse?

Mid May 1998
Silly thoughts of a tired webmaster
It's a difficult situation: for one contributor worth something there are more than TWENTY that only waste your time, most of them -moreover- as it seems completely "en mauvaise fois". So what? I could probably now close my site, maybe, there are now many others talented ones that would fill the gap: I reckon I have made enough my point: a non-commercial site can not only "survive", but become a reference and a source of knowledge for any other site on the web that deals with this kind of matter (yet the "nonchalance" by those who steal the knowledge on this site in order to sell it to the zombies keeps fascinating me... I believe that the mere existence of people so exclusively concentrated on money matters is one of the marvels of our world... like industrious little ants: instead of living these guinea pigs are furiously concentrated on their limited horizon: their useless GSM-appointments, the dutyful pathetical morning washing of their cars, the next career opportunity behind the shoulders of their collegues... hey... what remains for them later? A sense of fullfillment for having gained a little more money this way? To gain money, if not unimportant, is IMHO relatively easy (if you really don't know how to gain a lot of money just enter -for instance- any political party and conform until you do): the real difficult problem is what you will do with your life... how do you keep 'growing' and 'learning' all the way long... clearly most of the people working in this field have still a lot to understand... yet I'm VERY happy to have had the pleasure and the honor to meet (well, figuratively) people like +ORC, +gthorne, Sharp, Mammon, +ReZiDeNt, Quine, +Alistair, Hutch, +Aesculapius, +RCG and all the many other talented and clever ones that compensate 'ad abundantiam' the zombie majority I'm at times compelled to come to terms with) ~ Nothing cool in this hot may
Mid March 1998
Evolution of this site, evolution of the cracker
Should I push away from 'simple' cracking? It is difficult to judge, because there is a great 'turnover' of visitors, of course, and many people that land on my site are still 'cracker-conditioned', they don't yet grasp the beauty and the interest of reversing code that HAS NOTHING TO DO with protection schemes. On the other hand more and more valid reversers are growing up (one of the best: Quine, has recently decided to 'retire' and pass to more 'constructive' tasks :-( a very solide and powerful approach: they are IMPROVING the targets they reverse... well, I believe that my site had in part a role in this development. I'll try to push even more. Crackers are finally getting down from their trees all over the planet. They are EXPLAINING and TEACHING. They are beginning to use TOOLS! They are approaching from underneath the codebushes, very powerful and very dangerous, with their sharp assembly blades, for the heavy and overbloated Windozed Appllicationosaurus, stupidly chewing its routines on the code planes. Poor brainless creatures, they cannot even run away with their huge and heavy commercial overbloated bodies. In this incredibly silly-frilly aera the new Homo reversicus will have plenty of food! Yumm! Burp! ~ Teacher cool
Mid February 1998
About time on the web
Web time and real time have few things in common: that what seems very important to one seems irrelevant to others, and messages that are very urgent (say on a maillist) get their answers many week afterwards... this depends from the fact, I believe, that our 'community' is NOT real: messages sent by y for x arrives when he is gone for a week, he comes back and answers and y is upset for this delay. Z asks for help and many months later W answers, because he happens to have found Z's original email on dejavue seeking completely different things... funny web where there are still many pages linking to pages of mine that have disappeared in 1995! I find also the 'waves' curious, if you have a look at the chronology, you'll realise that, for instance, dongle cracking seems to have been all the rage towards the end of january... ~ Proustian cool
End January 1998
Working in the 'cave'
Keeping a site like this one remembers me of costantly adjusting and repairing things in a big house. At the moment, as you can see from the chronology, I'm working somewhere in my Javascript section... Take a seat, sip a cocktail and read some essays, if you need me you'll find me there. ~ The new Javascript entrances section has collected a huge amount of interest... man! These things are indeed interesting! ~ I have also revamped my reality cracking after having received the 'cigarretes' essay by +ORC... hope to get this section up and running for this sommer (besides: I love Bilibin's pictures :-) ~ Techno


November 1997 ~ January 1998 lotta things The Blackboard has been interrupted for a month. The new section has been improved and transformed in the (beginning) of a real Acadmey of anonimity, we'll see if we get enough time free to follow it. The Steganography section has collected a huge amount of ineterest ~ Really cool
8 November 1997 Anonymity Academy A new section with an essay by LordCaligo! ~ Quite interesting
7 November 1997 Fravia+ & Snatch New interesting tool: Smartcheck 5.0 ~ pretty important
3 November 1997 Thank denis PC Magazine november 97 (not the Hors serie edition) carries Delphi 2 trial and Intrabuilder ~ Pretty important
29 October 1997 +HCU preparation for the 1998 courses Well, this comes directly from +ORC, so only those that passed the strainer (and the old hands) are requested to do it ~ MOST important for all +HCUkers
Quite important for all friends
28 October 1997 Thank +ReZiDeNt! PcPro (UK magazine) December issue: pcANYWHERE, Norton Utilities, Crashguard, Norton AntiVirus and the full Corel Office 8 (with Paradox) for 3.50 UK pounds in Europe, even less in Britain ~ TOOLS!

28 October 1997 Watcom11 I know that some of you may be interested in the complete (201.008 bytes long) listing of all files contained in my WATCOM 11 CD-ROM: here they are. Watch it: no files here (of course you'll be able to find them on the Web, yet not on my site nor from my copy n.W31155), here have been zipped only the NAMES of all files! ~ not much important
21 October 1997 Java and C++ PCMag Hors-serie n.23 'Programmer Internet' issue "November 1997", a french magazine (only address:, price = 38 french francs) carries free (or easy to reverse :-) betas or trials of
JavaStudio 1.0 (Sun); Java WorkShop 2.0 (Sun); JDK 1.14 (Sun); Visual Cafe (Symantec); Borland C++ Builder (Borland); Borland Intrabuilder (Borland); and other small "development" suites.
12/19 October 1997 Tough protections (letter from +Sync) "I have spent several days looking at a VB3 program called POPIt, and have had very little success. I have talked to Razzia as well as several others on IRC and it seems that this program has not yet been cracked. I was hoping you could possibly post a challenge on the HCU page, looking for information on the scheme this program uses. It claims that it uses the hard drive serial number off of your computer as part of the protection, but I have doubts as to the validity of this". The program is available at Thanks +Sync
And here you have a first anwer by flipper!
