Rainlendar is worth a look, then, at least for fun since you bought something already -- it has a free Outlook plugin.

I had already checked out Rainlender.  It's nice (and free) but the Oulook plug-in is one-directional, meaning you still have update the Outlook calendar directly.  With Remind-me, you can update the Remind-Me calendar and you can synch from Outlook to RM or RM to Outlook, or to both.....not sure I explained that very well. 

If you work with Outlook and "Accept" meeting invitations, then you may appreciate the value of the synching ability of RM.

I have a laptop which serves a dual role for both work and play.  Since I am pretty much shackled to Outlook for planning things, I need something that talks with outlook.  Otherwise RM would have little value to me.

MLO, on the otherhand, is in a different league.  There are way too many many bells and whistles for my simple needs.  I read the description of the Outlook plug-in and it seems that it is not up to par with the synching ability of RM, but admittadly i did not install it to test it out.

I rely on Outlook for scheduling meetings and appointments but its a pain in the neck to quickly check dates or open if it is not already opened.

I recently tried and ended up buying Remind-Me  It's the only program I could find that can fully synchronize in either direction with the Outlook calendar (with an extra add on package). 

At US$40 it's a bit pricey but after using the demo I found I couldn't live without it.  I always have it running in the system tray to refer to, and to quickly revise appointments/meetings which can later by synched with Outlook.

There's nothing like a good F

Point of clarification - My issue described above is not with capturing a screen.  My issue/dilemma is how one prints out a hard copy of a lengthy autoscrolled screen capture so it can be viewed without a microscope.

Firefox Extension Backup Extension (FEBE) 2.0 might be what you're looking for.

FEBE allows you to quickly and easily backup your Firefox extensions. In fact, it goes beyond just backing up -- It will actually rebuild your extensions individually into installable .xpi files. Now you can easily synchronize your office and home browsers.

FEBE backs up your extensions, themes, and (optionally) your bookmarks, preferences and cookies.


I tried that but it doesn't work.  Any other suggestions?   

You can scale and VIEW the image in SC, or save as an image and look at it in any image viewer.  The problem is that when I print the file in SC or any other program, it prints as teeny tiny characters if the autoscroll is of any substantial length.

I posted the question above but did not receive a reply so.  Is there a trick to priniting a long autoscrolled file so it's legible?

it used to be that you were only as old as you feel.   Now, your're only as old as what you can hear.

Ah ha.  I see now.  There is a lot of great stuff to be found.....if you know where to find it.  Might want to add a Site Map to the to-do list.

Great job as usual!  I even found a very nice DC "Links" page.

    * June's Site of the Month,

Mouser, May I suggest that you add a link to the links page?  I didn't know it existed, and I could not find any other link on the website to take me there.  (there probably is one but I couldn't find it.)

$39.95 for powernap software seems a little steep.  I could create soothing Haiku's for DC credits if anyone's inerested......Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

While we're on the subject of autoscroll capture, I have a silly question.  If I save the file as .png or any other format, is there a good way to 'break' the image into multiple pages upon printing so I can actually read a long autoscroll capture?

I would appreciate some advice on how to transmit large files.  I don’t have the need or resources to set up a full blown website but I have some large files (50 to 100 MB) I would like to upload to a site to make available for download to selected folks.

I have seen some companies offering free web hosting services.  I was wondering if these are legitimate (free) web hosting services.  Is there another way to accomplish what I am trying to do?   Security is a concern but not a major consideration; password protection would suffice.

p.s. I am away from the house quite often and my computer is not connected much of the time so I can't use a personal web server hosted on my computer.

There are some third party programs that allow you to open and edit pdf forms.  I was never able to find freeware to do this so I had to pony up in a desperate moment and used PDF Editor 2.4 which can be found here

... I got rid of all of them because more and more apps want to index the crap out of my HD, and I'm sick of my HD platters spinning and spinning and spinning when I'm not there.

I agree with zridling's comments regarding the fact that a major difference between these search programs is the interface.  However, I respectfully disagree with the issue of continually spinning HD's. 

With X1, the user determines exactly when, if ever, the index should be updated, either on a scheduled or manually selected time. The initial indexing takes a while but incremental indexes are quite fast. 

The user determines the scope of the searchable index, ie. specific drives, specific folders or combinations, and whether or not Outlook Maill is included.


I found it to be a very helpful demo illustrating both the posting methodology and the power of the thumbnail capture capability.  I couldn't find it on the SC webpage but I think it would be good to add it there as well.

I'm not familiar with the screen saver option but another way would be to create a virtual destop wth just the browser accessible, and another password protected desktop with everything else.  It would require virtual desktop software to set up. 

See aslo for more information on this software.


There used to be a terrific little News Reader program called Jyte that is no longer supported.  What this program did better than anything I have found is that it would continuosly search RSS news feeds based on a user defined keyword search and it would only pull in the headlines of articles that fulfilled the Boolean search criteria.

The following link is a review of this now-defunct program

I was wondering if anyone knows of a program that does the same thing???


In this particular case, it involves a mailchecker program (Mailwasher) that I always have running on my system.  However, periodically, it disappears from the Windows tray so I have to kill it before I can re-start it to use it again.


Thanks wr975!  That did the trick.


I have tried to write a script but without any luck.  Can someone help me write an ahk to do the following in Windows XP?

1. Press Control-Alt-Del to open the Windows Task Manager
2. Go to the 'Processes' tab
3. Select the program called "stupidprogram.exe"
4. Click 'End Process' button
5. Close Application
