I was tampering once with win32k.sys. But I think is a hard task and that
a delay with me could delay ROS developement and I don't want that. As far
as I know Ge was working on that.

Seems easier. I think i can handle this, but i will only do it if nobody
is working there.

Still have to look at this functions. Again if nobody is messing with it

So the point is to eliminate loadros and go directly to freeloader. I know
DOS pretty well and I can handle assembler too. I will try this too.
Specially because it is not too much important in ROS developement.
I want things that nobody is likely to do because I have sent a lot of
to the trash can already. (a fix in registry that is fixed now and a port
of commctl32 i was doing). The list is bigger. I can't do CVS updates.
Right now my
only internet access is using an account in a Linux server (using an SSH
terminal) and this server goes out using a proxy that connects to another
proxy. I'm still trying to get puttyto open a connection to connect a
to it runnig a program in the server that dumps the raw HTTP to the
something like this so you can get the idea.
CVS Client --> Tunnel --> putty (SSH client)--> SSH server --> little
program that dumps to
terminal running in the server --> proxy1 --> proxy2 --> host on the
internet --> CVS server
quite long eh? that's why it will take me some time before I can do some
small CVS update(small because CVS is problematic with unreliable
this stuff wont be too much reliable).
and that is why I want somethig that ppl is not working with. Because
sendig a patch using the list is quite easy to mee and using one day when
a new release goes out to download the whole thing at school.
