I now have a system tray icon (those little ones by the clock in Windows) that looks like a Trifuel flame. And if I hold the mouse over it, a little box tells me the exact countdown to Vineman. If I right-click on it, I get the options of showing or hiding the actual application (which is just a countdown box that appears on the desktop) or exiting. Woo! I’m pretty excited. Especially since it will be very easy to customize for other races. I could do whatever icons I want, and countdowns to any dates and then any titles (right now the application titlebar says “Vineman”. In fact, I might write a program so that all I do is enter the new title and date, and maybe icon, and it makes a countdown for me.
Yes, I would be willing to share little applications for other races. It’s just a small exe that doesn’t take much processor time (so far as I have seen, and it shouldn’t really). =) Lisa, if you need a Vineman one I could email it to ya 😉
