A free player that supports multi core and puts the Power back in you finger tips.

This will play a BluRay from your harddisk just by selecting the folder.

This player didn't like conedvd for some reason. I have to un-install cloneDVD. I tried pulling out the SCSI driver but it didn't fix it.

Is your screen timeout out of control?

This is how to prevent windows timeout or screen lock when it is out of your control.

There is a very old very simple program called delayer.

You put this program in your start folder nad set the options to run it in the shortcut which I will show you how to do.

First you need to download delayer and put it where you want to to run.

You then want to set up a shortcut by right clicking the program and create shortcut.
Then rightclick the shortcut and select properties. You can then edit the shortcut.

The shortcut will determine how the program will work.

Here is my quick help file:

c:\tools\delayer "ping -n 1" /D10 /R /M
options are "program you want to run"
/Dxxxx where xxxx = seconds up to 24 days
/R is to repeat
/M minimize the program you run
/H hide the icon for this program
I minimize the ping so I never see it run so it doesn't popup while I'm working. You can launch a text file with reminders or any other program.
Once the shortcut is created then save the shortcut in your startup folder.

If you don't keep the icon hidden you can open the delayer program and kill if needed.

I run the 32bit for windows 7, Vista, or XP.

How to set up a personal macro in Excel 2010

In Excel 2010 if you need to use the same macro everyday you don't want to have to recreate it each time you want to use it. You need to create a macro in your personal workbook that will be available for use from that point forward.

You need to record a dummy macro and save it to your personal file.

Once saved you need to unhide the workbook.

Once unhidden you can edit the macro and then save it. Now when you click view / macro /view macro from the toolbar you will always see your personal macro.
