Skrommel,
I installed V 1.0 last evening on my dual processor machine & did a couple of restarts. The message appears when expected & only once. The icon shrinks to nothingness when CPU usage is lower than about 10% indicated by Win Task Manager. But the tip box still indicates negative numbers. (right now, -97% while WTM shows near 1%)
I am using these settings:
[Action]
program=winver.exe
message=
exit=1
[Settings]
cputhreshold=10
checkinterval=3
idleduration=30

OK, 'm gittn' ther. Baby steps, one at a time. Forgive my sarcasm, it was meant light-heartedly.
BTW, for my dual processor (not dual core) machine, I set the threshold level at
 -90% & IdleRun seems to work OK.

'm off to learn some secrets of AHK.

Skrommel,
What is an AHK script & where do I find it. Is it in there under the hood somewhere?

Yes, I use "large, 120 dpi" font size.
It is not a deal-breaker, I can figure out the text.

I just installed FARR. I know the interface is the last thing you want to think about, but on my system some of the text is clipped.
I attached a bit of a screeen capture.

Perhaps, as you consider the palettes, a checkbox to limit to "websafe" colors.

I have used it on three macnines for several days now & it works just fine. I have fiddled around with the "settings" file. I changed the parameters & changed the message to "do something!" just for fun. This little app does exactly what I had in mind.

Skrommel,
This does not seem to work on my development machine, It flashes a box for a fraction of a second, then disappears. The icon is in the tray & I can open the options code.
(WinXP SP2, dual AMD Opteron 64, RAM 4 Gig, HDs accumulate to near a TerraByte)

Another network machine is being re built, I am just now getting SP2 for it, has single AMD Single core. I will try it on that machine in the morning.

Here i am on a family trip- pecking away on my Palm Pilot- hiding in the kitchen - following this thread... thanks guys-it could have been a boring day!
BTW the coffee trip is my usual routine but I just knew you guys were NOT the 'if  it aint broke don't fix it' bunch,  / it is fun to watch you work.

Kinda' like some of the ideas behind your FARR, right? Perhaps there is a way to have a persistent list of 'oft used programs, to "pre-cache" them...
It is so KEWEL to see someone grab something & run with it...(all I wanted was a little traffic light in the tray.) :Thmbsup:

Mouser,
I'm a little unsure of protocol here, are you saying I should move or copy my message over to the NANY forum?

When Windows starts, we see the desktop, making us think we can do something, when, in fact, all the "cagata" in the startup folder is still loading. Can you give me a green light to say "startup is finished now; get on with it!"
Of course, a display with a "gas gage/speedometer" indicator would be nice too.
