Blast From The Past

For kicks I downloaded Milestone Xprotect GO this morning.

My handiwork is still in there!

In the Milestone/Milestone Surveillance folder, you’ll find a file called “mask.exe”. Don’t try executing the file, just copy the file and rename the extension to .jpeg. So you get

mask.exe -> mask.jpeg

Then open the file in your favorite JPEG viewer, and behold, a wonderful image i made in 3DSMax about 10 years ago.


This was used for demo-mode purposes. If you had not entered a valid license code, we’d embed this frame into the video (a costly process). To ensure that you didn’t just replace the demo image with a 1×1 pixel image, we validated a hash of the file content.

Fun times.
