Great thought to get a quote online if txt file not found. I wonder what other online text data is available? Word of the hour/day perhaps? CNN Headlines? (Please no joke of the day!)
I like the choice of the MessageBox rather than the ToolTip. The ToolTip limits the quotes to 256 Char and I'd need to edit all my text files. Plus I dislike that anoying POP sound, although easily disabled.
I am running into a problem, with the default settings, as I cannot drag the QuoteBox and have it stay, and a ghost image of the box remains on the screen. I've also seen a significant slow down of the PC when your Gone in 60 Seconds program is also running. (This is running on a fresh install XP Pro, and when 60 sec is closed the PC responds as usual.)
I tried to eliminate the Caption completely, with a single click to freeze, a double-click to close but was unsuccessful.(Not even close.) A fade in and out were also beyond my meager 4 months AHK experience.
-Thanks for your expert assistance.
I have dozens of Quote/Trivia/Puzzle txt files I have created over the years. If you wish to add some to your script.
As another thought; my grandson is now learning the multiplication tables. A scrolling window where 5x9 = eventually displays 45 might help him.
