“Four Oh Four”

To My Dedicated Reader,

The page you were looking for is currently not found on this website.

This could be an error on your part, or on mine. If you feel I am at fault, please feel free to Contact BV and let me know of the problem.
Generally speaking, if you don’t tell me something is wrong, I won’t know about it.
You must tell me what page you were looking for as I cannot read your mind across the internet (yet).

If sending me an email report is too much trouble:

  • You can use my Search Page to discover resources still maintained, probably find what you were actually looking for, and update your bookmarks/favorites accordingly as well as inform the link source of the update.
  • You can wander around my Site Map to check out information I have posted over the last 18 years.
  • You can Support BV to encourage me to maintain something that I have ignored and/or put it back online.

Regardless of the option(s) you choose, I appreciate your visit and hope the hunt for lost items is resolved to your satisfaction.

Windows Custom Services Registry File Creation Tools

The content previously used to generate registry files based upon visitor selections are removed due to unpopular recent demand and time required to maintain many of those tools online. In January 2017, I converted the website from dynamically generated server side content (WordPress and PHP) to static HTML. This change is expected to save on out of pocket hosting costs (by a lot) as well as time spent in the background maintaining the server specifically for these tools to remain online.

I still offer pre-constructed registry settings for the following:

If I receive many requests and financial support for Windows 10 Services Registry Files, I will generate them. I can still create the files on my computer locally, just not have them publicly modifiable on the website.

Robots.txt Restriction:

As shown live in my http://www.blackviper.com/robots.txt file, the Internet Archive Wayback Machine is blocked with the following explanation:

# The Internet Archive Wayback Machine is blocked with the above restriction as it reduces the page views and my income from people linking to the archive instead of the original source:
# http://www.blackviper.com
# All content on the Archive is served from my domain in an updated and maintained form.
# When my domain is offline this robots.txt file is no longer served and the existing archive of old content returns.
# I remove the restriction every few months and when major content changes so the Wayback Machine can get a snapshot.
# If something is missing from my domain, please Contact BV using the information on my site and let me know.

Whether or not you agree with my decision, I guess that is up to you.

Take care and tell others about Black Viper!
