Just a bit of fun

But free! (Runs on Windows)
A simple "Quotes server"

(Page's URL: basicquotes.htm)

No "tutorial" as such... but there are rems in the sourcecode, and the start of one in a .txt file.

But you DON'T NEED ONE to Just Use It

"It" being a simple little program to throw pictures up in a little window in the corner of your screen. (Or a whole-screen window, if you wish, but you might as well use the Windows screensaver for that, no?!)

((q-alt text for image)) ((q-alt text for image))

And the "picture" can be a picture of some words, which is why the thing is called a "quotes" server.

A few readers will have webservers. If you do, you can use this to make a static page dynamic! Your static page can have a picture on it that automatically changes. Not on already fetched copies of the page. But to delight anyone who revisits your page.

Want to know more? Write me! Details below.

Enjoy! If only "just" using it. Even more so, if you Do Things with the very basic source code.


Here's the link to get a zip file with all you need. It even has a "starter set" of images..

You can get

To "just use", you only need to put BasicQuotes.exe somewhere, and the folder "QuotesSupply" in the same folder.

Change the images in "QuotesSupply", and, WHEN YOU'VE RESTARTED QuotesServer.exe, you'll get different images in the display.

What's New at the Site Advanced search
Search tool (free) provided by FreeFind... whom I've used since 2002. Happy with it, obviously!

Unlike the clever Google search engine, this one merely looks for the words you type, so....
*    Spell them properly.
*    Don't bother with "How do I get rich?" That will merely return pages with "how", "do", "I"....

Please also note that I have three other sites, and that this search will not include them. They have their own search buttons.

My SheepdogSoftware.co.uk site, where you'll find my main homepage. It has links for other areas, such as education, programming, investing.

My SheepdogGuides.com site.

My site at Arunet.

Why does this page cause a script to run? Because of the Google panels, and the code for the search button. Also, I have my web-traffic monitored for me by eXTReMe tracker. They offer a free tracker. If you want to try one, check out their site. Why do I mention the script? Be sure you know all you need to about spyware.
