    Hello Fellow tempers,
    I am here to tell you about GBAtemp in whatpulse.org.
    Help us and GBAtemp grow on a large-Scale.
    Just join Whatpulse and type,click and move your mouse as much a you can [​IMG]

    What is WhatPulse

    WhatPulse is a key counting program which monitors the number of keystrokes and mouseclicks, and more recently the distance the mouse moves, that a user makes over a period of time. The program is not spyware, as it does not record the keys that are pressed (software that does this is called a keylogger), but instead measures the number of times that keys are pressed. In this way, one can see the number of keystrokes and mouseclicks over a period of time.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Ok, so now I know what it is... I still don't know why, so I think I'll pass.

    Gonna close this up while I decide whether it's some kind of dodgy adware app or not. I don't trust it for one second.

    edit : Thread re-opened. After having looked more into it it still seems well dodgy to me but I'll let you make your own decisions about whether to use it or not. It's a keylogger that counts the number of the keystrokes, mouse clicks and mouse movements you make and uploads them. It says it doesn't pay attention to what actual keys you press but some places are saying it does so make up your own minds.

    USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

    I've been using it since 2006 and have had no trouble with it. You can set it to count which keys you press if you wish but it's not done anything dodgy for me. Obviously if you're safety concious then don't bother but it's not too much of a risk from my own use.

    I don't care who told you to post it, I care about the safety of the people using the site. Any app that logs keypresses and uploads them somewhere means people should be wary as far as I'm concerned.

    No, you're putting words in my mouth. I'm saying exactly what I'm saying, that anyone using this app should be wary if they're security concious. That's the end of the matter.

    So ~De arimasu and I were saying in some different language?
    I'll say it once again

    Those who are concious about this app may not use it.I'm not forcing anyone.

    Arrogant one aren't you? Did you say it before or after I posted my warning? It was after. I posted my warning and you attempted to argue with me over it. As I said before, that's the end of this matter. Any more posts from you arguing over this will be trashed.
