YOD'M3D, alt-tab thingy in 3D. I installed it at work on an old Win 2k workhorse and it seems to be running fine...

I had a chance to try this out the other day. It's not a bad start, but it would be much nicer if it leveraged the DWM API in Vista so that the virtual desktops would be "live" while the cube is spinning. The current version simply takes a snapshot each time you switch.

You're right Ryder, and on my Win2k I can see it taking the snapshot, coz the animation stops for a while; there is a slight delay. Windows on the cube ain't live indeed...

Yeah. That's the way it should be.
Except at that point, it won't be backward-compatible with XP/2k, but from a purely selfish standpoint, who cares about them anymore? ;P

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
