Yikes, panic, open explorer, browse to a ‘certain’ folder, turn off sharing. Quickly.

“After Dark” – whatever happened to the flying toilets? I’ve contacted Berkely/Sierra to try and get an official response, but any pointers would help!

w.bloggar – name change and new version (2.0), Good to see a common sense approach with the name. Big corporations should take not from the approach of Evan to this situation, a polite request, and of Marcelo’s reaction. Now if the new version would just hurry up and download….

ShortPopUp – sometimes you just find a piece of software, something simple, that does exactly what you’ve been looking for since, well since Windows 95. Display the contents of a folder from the taskbar (including the ability to filter the list). Simple and allows me to pull my playlists from my ‘Music’ directory, fire up WinAmp and (with the aid of the auto start plugin for WinAmp) starting playing automatically. Nice for me, a huge bonus for Louise as it saves her rooting about to find ‘her’ playlist.

Ohhh and while I remember, I’m kinda liking WinBar too, but TClock will ALWAYS reign supreme. Don’t believe me? Ask Virtual Plastic.. (advance warning: ensure you have plenty of room on your hard drive before you visit, you’ll be downloading stuff by the bucket load!). Ohhh and YMMV, but please take the time to read the documentation, before you install any of these glorious pieces of freeware.

Re-design took a step forward (at last).

The project I was working on will finally be completed tomorrow. Which gives me 2 days to do what I had planned to do in 5… nothing new there then.

File-renaming. I want to rename my MP3s. I currently have Track – Artist.mp3. I would like Artist – Track.mp3. Help!

I’m not a huge gamer (as is evident by my pitiful attempts in deathmatch) but it is so much fun. Admittedly getting battered to death for the 5th time by someone with a crowbar can get a bit tedious, especially when you have a BIG gun, but it is addictive – an adrenalin buzz… suddenly I can see how people get addicted to these things. Rise of the Triads and DukeNukem were previous DeathMatch games, but I never really took to them.

The problem now – I will soon get hold of a gun, run down the street, probably naked, whooping and shooting innocent bystanders.

I’m joking of course, I wouldn’t need to shoot them if they saw me naked, probably drop dead in fright… either way my mind has been corrupted, I am now an evil killing machine. Yawn…
