The Form Letter Machine
The form letter machine is EXACTLY what I needed and I've spent hours now making a very complex tree that will serve my purposes very well.. By the way, your [demo] "movie" provided several minutes of good entertainment for my two kids--they thought it was a hoot. They're nerds in the making, I guess :)

Rescue orphans

Cavalcader  on our forum asks for a little utility:

I have a download area that regularly ends up with "orphans" in folders/subdirs (subdirs with a single file) as their former companions are replaced elsewhere by newer or better versions. What I'd like to do is somehow automate going through a particular dir tree, and any files that are by themselves in their own folder are moved to their parent dir.

CPUlight: Run application on low CPU level

I'm on the scrounge again.  Does anyone know of software (preferably free or low cost) which will run an application when the CPU level and/or disk activity falls below a certain limit or when the keyboard /mouse is idle (but able to set idle time in seconds rather than minutes.

Instant Boss : (10+2)*5 Timer

JacobB asked for someone to code the following our Coding Snacks Request forum:

I know that there are allot of timers and clocks out there, but this one is specific for the "Work The Dash and Take a Break" formula discussed at:

http://www.43folders...stination-hack-1025/

The idea is to have a timer that will run for 10 minutes doing a task, then take a 2 minute break, and repeat 5 times, and you have 1 hour of work.

This would be a great help for procrastinating people like me.

A few days later App103 from our forum returned with a wonderful implementation, called "Instant Boss".

DClock - Always on top, hotkey activated StopWatch

The StopWatch can be accessed from DClock's menu or you can run StopWatch.exe.

The hot-key is Ctrl-Shift-F9.  It will either start it or pause/resume it. You will have to stop and reset from the buttons on the StopWatch window. I can only assign one global hotkey to a window so I felt it was best to pause instead of stop.

You reset by clicking the stop and then the start button again.
