Yeah, I know the icon doesn't have to be there, just haven't gotten around to getting rid of it. I use the oldest version of their software- the new version sux. I use Webshots cause I'm a long time user of their site & had tons of pics there If you look on the left I have various other names too- Roselvr1, Westjerseyrose & Thejumpdog are mine too. It's an easy, convenient way to share pics with computer illiterate relatives.

I'd take a screencap of it... but I'm too lazy now. It averages at anytime between 8 and 10 icons.

  • Trillian
  • Folding@home
  • Electron Microscope III
  • CPU Socket temperature (Motherboard Manager 5)
  • CPU temperature (Motherboard Manager 5)

4 - usually 5 though.

Volume Control
Networking neighboorhood
winamp3
Trillian
(not currently but usually) Azureus

I hate systray bloat and steer away from it whenever possible. I especially hate that "auto hide" function thats on by default in winXP ... ruins the convenience.

Thanks, that's the Necro, nothing in it though, just an empty box, but so far it's my favorite piece of work. It's all constructed from polymer clay. And yeah, I did throw the whole case in the oven to fire it. :) Whew! And is it ever heavy.

So... how much RAM do you people use at idle?

Screw it, this deserves a new thread.
