in thread (De)-Serializing from/to VB

Yeah, I was expecting to use pack/unpack, but speaking with the developer lead me to believe that VB might do something beyond the obvious for its serialization a la Storable. However as I continue to hunt and gather evidence, it does look like it's your typical data structure puked out as binary. Hopefully I can convince him to share his Structure definitions so that I do not have to try to reverse engineer things.

    Can you put some known data into one of these blobs and then dump it in binary?

    In the absence of definitions; that's the best approach.
