re the "click cutter" highjacking of this post.
I went to the site link and downloaded but didnt install after reading the install notes and realizing that you have to register and then again a few months later etc. just didnt like the "feel" of the website and it wanting my email before downloading and then sending me email after downloading.

Find And Run Robot / Re: Another FARR similar app - Executor
« on: August 25, 2009, 09:47 AM »
As someone who is not a geeky type I like the fact that it is easy to use and the killer for me is that it uses much less memory than the others. The way i have FARR set up it sits in the tray and uses 2mb! executor uses 5.5
So you're not the geeky type but the biggest advantage of FARR over other tools is that it uses a whopping 3.5 MB less memory? You do realize you most likely have about 1000+ MB at your disposal? Don't get me wrong it's nice when an app uses little RAM but 2 MB vs 5.5 MB doesn't make any difference (yes more than double but it's 3.5 MB for crying out loud).

It wasnt the only reason. But all the others i tried used more memory, executor used 5.5 at the lowest.  Yes it doesnt seem much does it, but when you have about a dozen apps running it can add up before you realize.

quote "as i was telling philKC on the irc chat, this is the first firewall leak tester that beats me, because it tries to run any non-default browsers it finds on the system, and while i have my default browser blocked, i have others which are allowed to connect through the internet."

it runs non default browsers, would it also find portable browsers on your hard drive?

It can be done, and it has been done.
Take a look at the pro (Skrommel)'s Colour Taskbar script [ Here ]

EDIT: Oh and it only has effect on the older style of window's task bar, as far as I know..

As I understood it Skrommel's script makes the taskbar run though a range of colours over time.
But I think the poster just wants to be able to change the colour and have it stay one colour?
I would like that too.

O.K. seems like its not the best idea i could have had!!  best to drop this.
What made me think of it  - is because some of the bigger expensive disk defraggers defrag in the  background when the computer is idle, sort of a bit at a time to keep your pc drives unfragmented.  But your right it would be hard to decide what was idle, low cpu usage, low hard drive usage etc.
