There is a program called Saver.  I haven't tried it.

Trayer looks like it was designed for older versions of Windows.  Has anybody tried it with XP?

SysTrayX does what U want but is not free.


This program sets wallpaper for folders.  I'm mentioning it because Lovely Folders does also.

I love the Savage Sword of Conan covers.

Thanx for posting this.

I used to use a program called Rainbow Folders.

The original site seems to have dissapeared:

There still appears to be many sites offering it for download.

I think this will come in very handy. :Thmbsup:

Thanx kimmchii.

You're right, FlashGet seems to be downloading this just fine.  I'm really surprised that GetRight can't download this & Flashget can.

Well guys, I know it's been over a year but for those who wanted to know... :P

I've found a file that I can't download.

The file is over 60 megs & I've tried to download it 5 times but the connection has been reset each time.

Veign, there are smaller files on the site.

I tried using GetRight but I got an incorrect referrer error message generated in an HTML file.  I remember in older versions of GetRight you could change the referrer but this does not appear to be the case for the current version.

I think the idea of the page file will soon be eliminated as it will become unnecessary with systems getting more and more RAM.
They should scrap the paging file, but they won't.  The more memory the user gets the more memory developers use.


I emailed them too, when I posted here.  No reply for me either, yet.

I know it has been mentioned here before (but not in this thread)

Startup Delayer ( gives control over the startup process - you can delete entries you don't want, add new entries and also time the startup of applications so that you can introduce a delay during startup if you have a lot of apps trying to load all at the same time.

I was dissapointed with the interface for this program.

I think a far more practical GUI would facilitate:
1.  Sorting the programs in the order that you want them to start.
2.  Adding a delay time that represents the period the system must wait before starting the next program.  This is because programs hog the CPU for varying periods.  You can measure (& change) the time it takes a program to finish starting & not worry about clashing with other programs in the startup list.

At the moment you must set delay that is timed from the time the system boots up.  If you add a program that you want to start earlier than existing entries, & you wish to keep your system responsive, you must now do this: Manually add the time that the new program takes to start to the entries that start after the new program.  Tedious!

Sounds good.  I will.

Thanks Carol.

Thanks Carol.

We'll give it a go when we have some spare time.

Thanx Josh.

Hey Superboyac.

I don't know if Hide Folders is of any interest to you.

Hi guys.

My sister has hundreds of wedding photos.  She wants to share them on the internet so that everybody who wants to view or have photos can.

I don't even own a digital camera so this is foreign territory for me.  Is there a free service that allows you to upload hundreds of photos all at once.  We don't want to have to do them 1 by 1.

Thanx 4 looking.

Has anybody actually used MPF yet?  I'd love some opinions.  I'm a bit hesitant to try something that was pulled as soon as it was released.

Thanx for the link Carol.

I've been using Peter's Ultimate Alarm Clock for a few years.  The disadvantage of this program's functionality is it is designed to just alert you at certain times.  I'm looking for a program that has an interface that will prevent me from being surprised by my entered tasks.  For example if I have a dental appointment I obviously need to know in advance that I have to get myself to the dentist by a certain time.  In my opinion the best interface would be one that shows the current day's tasks & maybe the tasks for the next 7 days with a "# days to go until dental appointment" style entry.  What program is closest to this type of format?

Hi guys.

I use Outlook Express.  I was just trying to find a video file that was emailed to me years ago.  I don't remember the email title, who sent it or the filename.  Bottom line: I can't find it but I'm sure it's there somewhere.

I sometimes use TracesViewer to find files that have been downloaded to my PC but not saved by me.  I was thinking there should be a similar program to view all attachments of emails.  Maybe it can sort the attachments by type?

Thanx 4 looking.

I'd prefer a smaller weekly newsletter.  It takes me a whole day to go through the newsletter.  Also, readers would be more likely to participate in the forums because discussions won't be over by the time they find out about them.

I haven't used Quicken so don't know if this will be of any use to you.

The Windows shortcut for autosizing columns is"Ctrl" and the (number pad) "+" key.  It won't work for the main "+" key.
