SteamHttpCacheView v1.01 Jun 8, 2013
This SteamHttpCacheView update addresses a problem where the 'File Size' column was empty for some files because the 'Content-Length' header value is not set in the cache file. Steam started recently using Varnish HTTP accelerator on some of the servers and it seems that Varnish strips the 'Content-Length' header from the response.

Full list of changes:
- The value for 'File Size' column is now taken from the actual file data size when the 'Content-Length' is not present in the response headers.
- Last modified time of the extracted files are now set according to the Last Modified time shown on the list.
- Changed the message shown when the cache folder is not found or cannot be accessed.
- Fixed a bug where closing the application by selecting 'Exit' from the menu would not work.
- Fixed a problem that prevented Enter shortcut key from working.
SteamHttpCacheView v1.0 May 11, 2013
SteamHttpCacheView is an new application that reads the contents of the http cache folder of Steam client, and displays a list of all files stored in the cache. For each cache file, it shows the URL of the file, time the file was requested from the server, last modified time on the server, cache file expiration time and more.

With SteamHttpCacheView you can easily extract the selected cache files to a different folder, copy items from the list to the clipboard or save them into a file.

As for now, I didn't release the source code for SteamHttpCacheView, but I will release it later on. However, I am considering releasing it under a different, more restrictive, license.

I should also mention that SteamHttpCacheView is heavily influenced by NirSoft tools (ChromeCacheView to be more precise).
Website not accessible outside Finland Apr 28, 2013
In recent months, my website has been inaccessible to users outside Finland for long periods of time.

I have no idea why this is happening, but i think it has something to do with the DDoS attacks a few months back against some of the big websites hosted by the same host as mine. The host's sledgehammer approach was to be block all connections coming from outside Finland which is really annoying, as they also seem to block connections to websites not targeted by the attack.
