Well, this is as close as I’m ever going to get to a press release.
A small piece of freeware I’ve been working on for some time has recently been officially released. This is really a Frankenstein of utilities I personally find handy to have in the system tray. A lot of it has been a programming exercise, like the auto-upgrade feature. The code is written in VC++ w/ MFC. Yes old school, but does offer maximum compatibility. There are probably a lot of classes I will eventually release to CodeProject over the following months. Here is the blurb:
“Gong! offers fast, flexible control over your system volume. Use the Win key to mute, raise, or lower volume. Pin the volume to the screen for total control even in Remote Desktops or Virtual Machines. Set additional sound events like an hourly chime. Make your computer sound like a grandfather clock! Set a sleep time to keep your computer quiet at night. Set graphical and/or auditory reminders in 2-clicks. See a countdown on your screen when its time to leave work. Keep your system time accurate with the atomic clock. Quickly access a calendar in 2-clicks. Make decisions with the Hainted 8-Ball!“
