Wow; 9.6 MB - this new baby sure is "not tiny"! However, the first time I clicked this link I was taken to Windows Live which required me to tell when I was born and where I live, so it should not come as a surprise if someone will cancel the download, leaving you with fewer testers...
I have been puzzled by the buttons EasyChat and EasyHold, and more, but so far I have refused to push those buttons, because I know no programs with such names. Now I see that your new DC signature is linking to those programs, but maybe you should tell a little here about these apps? Edit: I for one will never follow a link unless some text first made me interested.
Hi Curt, let me clear up some stuff...
First of all, Windows Live should NOT require you to login or register
as I have tried it and it doesn't ask me, however it is a beta program, so
I am aware of the...size of the file. Unfortunately. I can't really make it smaller, I have been pushing that point for a while, but it is a lot smaller then installing all the programs individually, so it is an improvement, nonetheless.
The buttons, ahh, buttons. Very shiny.
Ill give a quick overview of the new programs that are now included in the "package" program idea...
(this is from the newest version to be released in the next couple days, but I am trying to explain the current version's buttons also):
EasyChat (named EasyChat n Clear in latest build) - this is my little app for making and saving custom text for later automatic typing. Open, click the key (F2-F12) button you want to assign the text to, type away, and click Apply. Then hit the key at any time and see your text entered instantly.
EasyHold (now part of SimpleOpen in latest build) - this was a request in my "Computer jokeware..." topic. Start the program, type a popular drink (including Coke, Pepsi, Sprite, Dr. Pepper, beer
and a couple more) and watch your computer make a cup holder for you!
IM Clear (now a part of EasyChat n Clear in the latest build) - Clears instant message/chat session text from prying eyes. Mainly for teenagers like me who have folks that are a little too nozy at times.
SimpleStart (named SimpleOpen in latest build) - my little FARR alternative/basic app launcher/system manager (includes options to open/close disk drives, check free space, turn up/down or mute volume, open My Computer, open Recycle Bin, open Control panel, and more. Its a complex yet simple program, driven by its tray menu (includes a basic GUI, as well).
WinFix - my Dr. Windows replacment. (Don't use it yet.) It works the exact same way as Dr. Windows, and has many of the same/similar "errors". Has a code bug that keeps the errors from coming up (except the "could not open file or document" error
The TinyUrl.com links are to the pages explaining the programs, not direct downloads. They all point to various pages on my site (http://www.incredisims.com/
All the programs, except WinFix, work flawlessly (knock on wood). I have had a couple little problems with them, but just because of Spyware Terminator's realtime shield and Vista's UAC. Nothing caused by my end of it.
Hope I helped out, I may change the link so its not some annoying register stuff
