    I've been wondering about this for ages now, but is it possible to make it so that when XP starts up it'll say Good Morning/Good Afternoon/Good Evening, depending on the time of day it is.

    For example, MSN explorer.

    From a search on the forums, I found out that not only does XP Pro edition do it, but it also says the users name if it is listed within its list of names.

    So far, I've been lurking around XP home trying to find the same option, but I've been coming up short...

    heck yeah... ok then I will go ahead and try it out... I love the little female voice saying 'good morning' 'good evening' and 'goodbye' it just sounds sexy.. :D

    You could easily write a PHP script, or JavaScript to do something like this. Basically...

    if time == 12:00 var when afternoon
    elseif time == 18:00 var when evening
    elseif time == 22:00 var when night

    Then setup Active Desktop and save the code as an HTML page and have it display on your desktop.
