CobCats (HotCat and CoolCat)

HotCat(This program is now unavailable because of false positive Antivirus reports. I'm sick of explaining the situation)

HotCat is a server application used to send and receive information to/from a remote client (CoolCat) using the TCP/IP protocol.

The client can this way completely control the remote computer in which the server is installed.

Cool catHotCat and CoolCat can be compared with other similar applications as NetBus or Back Orifice, but have a more complete set of functions and is a serious administration tool, with many security functions.

Note: In the rare case if Hot Cat is running on Windows NT and the "Processes" tab is not working in CoolCat, you may need to download this DLL from Microsoft and install it on the server side.

CobShieldCobShield is a service application which solves two main problems: It monitors any service running on Windows NT/2000/XP and starts it if it is found stopped. That way, you can automatically re-start some important service if it crashes. You can choose the services to monitor and protect from a user friendly interface. The other job CobShield does is to automatically restart the computer at some scheduled times.

The program creates a log file and has a mail alerter as an optional feature.

CobShield is a service itself, and that's why it only can work on NT/2000/XP.

CobPaintCobpaint is a VERY SIMPLE paint program which can be used to create bitmap pictures with the computer.

I made this program to be used in Special Education with persons with any kind of disabilities: persons who, for any reason cannot use "normal" programs like Paint or Paintbrush. It can also be used by small children.

Cobpaint has a very friendly interface with very big buttons, only a few tools (three pencils, two cans and five colors). The user doesn't need too write a file name or search in the directory tree to save a picture: the program saves the pictures automatically. The user can also preview the picture to open.
