Windows: 2000/XP/Vista/Win7
A small calendar and event reminder that unobtrusively sits on your desktop and is ready to use any time. No taskbar button or system tray icon. The calendar is transparent so it's not an eyesore and consumes very little memory. Enter as many daily or regular reminders as you like. Float your mouse over a day to see all reminders for the day. Shows a short list of upcoming reminders below the calendar. Fonts, colours and tooltips are customisable so it blends in with your desktop colour and font schemes.
Windows: 2000/XP/Vista/2003/2008/Win7/Win8
This little application displays system information on your desktop in a similar way to some other desktop information tools. Unlike others, this application looks like wallpaper but stays resident in memory and continues to update the display in real time. Uses very little memory and nearly zero cpu. Perfect for quick identification and walk-by monitoring of production or test server farms. Everything is customisable including language.
Windows: .Net 3.5
This is my first C#/.NET application, wahoo! Disk Usage Analyser is a Windows Explorer clone but with tools to help you track down disk usage. It scans the selected disk to generate statistics on size, files and folders. A configurable list of preset filters can be used to show only files of specific types. Reports can be generated in text, csv, xml and html format. An optional disk monitor will update the display in real time when changes are made to the folders on display. Disk Usage Analyser is written for .Net v3.5. Works for 32 bit and 64 bit Windows.
Windows: All versions
