Welcome to Goat 1000 - this is where you'll find some of the bits and pieces of software that I cobble together for fun. Please feel free to download them and try them out. All this stuff is freeware, no guarantee that it will do anything, etc. (though if it does fail to do anything, please let me know!)
SVGGraph 2.24.1 exists to release some changes I have made over the last few months while I have been concentrating on other projects. The main change in this version is the addition of a StackedBarAndLineGraph to go with the existing BarAndLineGraph:
The StackedBarAndLineGraph supports all the usual options for stacked bar
graphs and multi-line graphs, with one exception: the
option can only be used to put line datasets on the second axis. This is
because bars stacked on top of each other must use the same scale or the graph
will not make sense.
TrayBlank 1.9 actually adds something new for a change - options to start the screensaver directly. I've also updated the code that draws the tray icon to make it look clearer, and made the progress bar a lot more likely to be accurate.
The new option to start the screensaver directly is in a submenu called “Screensaver start” along with the existing delay option and another new option, “Directly after timeout”. What a direct start does differently is starting the screensaver as a new process instead of sending a message to Windows telling it to start the screensaver.
This means that the screensaver is run the same way as if you double-clicked on the screensaver icon itself. It will run on your main desktop instead of the empty desktop that Windows creates for screensavers to run on, so it has access to Windows Explorer and any other windows running there. Microsoft don't separate things out for no reason - if you don't trust your screensaver, don't run it directly! Actually, if you don't trust your screensaver you shouldn't run it at all. Uninstall it and run a virus and malware scan.
JPEG Saver 4.19.2 is another bugfix release. The main bug fixed in this version is a crash when using the “Desktop” or “Desktop Pile” backgrounds. I've also fixed the items editor not remembering the item name or its enabled/disabled state when creating a new item.
There are two new transitions in this version, “White Out” and “Colour Fade”. They both fade the current image out then fade the new image in, with “White Out” fading to white in between and “Colour Fade” fading to the colour in the centre of the first screen in between.
The new version is available from the downloads page.
