From the publisher:
"The Dagger is a client/server application which allows the client
software to monitor, administer, and perform other network and
multimedia actions on the machine running the DaggerServer. To
communicate with the DaggerServer the DaggerClient must run on any
Microsoft Windows machine.... I programmed the Dagger completly new.
With the helpfull units of a very good friend of mine "Cyanide". With
this units there is nothing realy impossible. Sure I could programm it
also without this units but it made the hole thing much easier."
