FLIQLO – Flip Style Clock Screensaver

July 17, 2010

As long as I have been using the computer, I have always been fascinated with the various types of clocks that can be installed on the computer that are replications of real clocks.

Recently I came across another clock to add to my collection, called FLIQLO.

FLIQLO

FLIQLO is the replication of the old flip style clocks and is installed on your PC, as a screensaver.

If you do not want it to be your screensaver, you can do what I do. Install FLIQLO, go into your screensaver settings and set your screensaver to none.  After that, search your PC for the file Fliqlo.scr, right click on the file Fliqlo.scr, select Send To on the menu, then select Desktop (create shortcut).  Once the shortcut appears on the desktop you can then start FLIQLO whenever you want to start it, by double clicking the shortcut.  I manually run all of my favorite clock screensavers this way via shortcuts I create.

How To Spruce Up Your Google Search Page

June 5, 2010

Many PC’s that I get my hands on I set the homepage to “Google.com”, that loads the Official Google Search Page. I have found this to be a great launching point, especially for new computer users. The page has always been quite bland; however, recently Google has provided an option that will allow an user to add a background image to the page.

To find and apply this option, visit Google.com. Once the page loads you will see an option to “Add a background image and make Google your own” (see below).

Google Search

The background can be an image from your computer, your Picasa Web Photos (google account required), the public gallery or from the editor’s picks. For example, I uploaded the image below of a broken Microsoft Window from my PC. Each time I perform a search, that image is now my background (see screenshot below).

Select A Background

One thing to point out. If you want to remove or change an image you can do so by clicking on the “Remove Background Image” text at the bottom LEFT CORNER of the screen. It is difficult to pick this out; however, you can get the general location by looking at the arrow in the screenshot below.

You can read the official notice of this new feature at the Official Google blog [ HERE ] .

Make a Custom Themed Google Home Page

May 14, 2010

I am sure all of you have used the Google search engine. As a matter of fact, when I setup a PC, It is not uncommon for me to set the browser homepage to Google. This makes for an excellent and an easy launching point for the user.  The only problem with doing this is that the Google search engine page is not the most attractive page out there.

image

A solution to making the Google search engine page an attractive interface is to use Favoorit.  With Favoorit you can:

– Find or create your theme
– Add your favorite Websites
– Set it as your homepage
– Enjoy your cutom homepage
– Share it with your friends
– Move the Google search box with your mouse

Here’s how it works:

Visit the Favoorit website.

Select (click on) a background image (or theme). You can even use your own images.

Once the theme loads in your browser,  click on “set as homepage”.

You can change the theme as many times as you want by visiting Favoorit and following the steps outlined above. At the top left corner of the Favoorit page you can also add some of your favorites (most used) sites.

Enhance Your Windows Wallpaper

March 13, 2009

When I find great software where the author is dedicated to meeting the needs of the end-user, I will make a point to applaud the author (programmer) by posting the software on the blog. One such author, who get’s a standup ovation and is a repeat performer,  is John Conners, who is the programming genius behind John’s Background Switcher.

John's Background Switcher

If you spend a great deal of time at your PC it is important to change the scenery once in awhile to help keep your mood enlighted. John’s Background Switcher is awesome in the aspect that it will automatically change your background (wallpaper) images at pre-determined intervals. The real power behind the software is the ability to pull images from a variety of sources and plaster them on your screen in a variety of different ways. The most recent change, which prompted this writeup, is that you can now pull images from any Media RSS feed. This option alone literally enables the user to pull down a vast array of images from a vast array of media sources. If you are not using this software, then you are missing out on a premier “FREE” software package that is a real joy to use AND see. [ GET IT HERE ]
