    Increase # of downloads

    How about using a browser other than IE? I have been extremely impressed by Mozilla Firefox and annoyed I put up with IE for so long. Firefox has lots of nice features and you have the ability to add extensions to increase the funtionality (Open source too). It also has a great download...

    Email Problem

    Logoff script

    Anyone know of a way to define a logoff script using a logon script? Right now I am using a script that automatically starts the logoff process when it’s done. I would prefer the logoff button to cause the logoff script to run. Group policy isn't an option unless it can be configured via...

    Any of you use LiteStep?

    I used litestep for a while. It is a very cool program but I also found changing skins to be very troublesome. I also missed having a taskbar on both of my monitors. In the end I found it wasn't worth it and uninstalled it. IMO, don't waste your time unless you have time to spare. Dan

    Possible Script?

    it seems you really only have the option I mentioned above. Write a small vb application that will open the comma delimited excel files (assuming from your other posts) and import it into access. Its much simpler than trying to continually import by hand or trying to get VBA to manipulate the...

    Live webcam

    I should have made myself more clear. 1. Remote desktop to the computer that has the webcam. 2. Using the remote desktop connection, launch your webcam software that you typically use to take pictures/videos. 3. From the webcam software you will be able to see everything that the camera...
