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.


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority". I knew I was on the right track :)
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
