Son Of Spy

Ladles and Generalmen,

With the condensation dripping off the supercooled CPU of
my <<Noblesse oblige>> (that's a joke son!) and the perspiration
beaded on my brow (not to mention soaking my shirt)I am finally
ready to purvey some truly **amazing** applcations to make your summer
nights **wild**.

Addtionally please note that the Anycities mirror is offically abandoned
as I can no longer upload changes to it. My two mirrors are now on
SoVerNet and SpyMac....links at the bottom of this post.

BhoDemon v2.0 ~1.3Mb
Think of BHODemon as a guardian for your Internet browser: it
protects you from unknown Browser Helper Objects (BHOs), by letting you
enable/disable them individually. BHODemon is free, runs in the "tray"
area, and works on Windows 95 or later operating systems Given that (a)
BHOs can do absolutely anything to your system, and (b) they are often
installed without your knowledge, there is a distinct potential for
abuse by vendors. The problem is, until now you had no way of knowing
which BHOs are on your machine, who put them there, and what they do.
This is what BHODemon does - it lets you easily manage your BHOs, and
tells you what each BHO on your system is doing.

BootSkin v1.05a ~943Kb

programs that can change the Windows XP boot screens, BootSkin does so
in a safe manner. It doesn't patch the Windows XP kernel. Nor does it
require the user to download replacement Windows XP kernels to do so.
This has 2 advantages: 1) Boot screens that use BootSkin are typically
under 20K compared to other boot screen programs whose files are over 2
MEGABYTES. 2) There is no risk of having your system unable to boot due
to a corrupted file or after applying a service pack.

Compression for the calendar files * Portrait & landscape format
printing * Bitmap and JPEG support * Free color and font selection *

want visible, for instance Winamp, SysMeter, console, chat window, or
whatever. * Runs applications so it can timely position them or make
them transparent. * Positions and resizes windows based on window
caption or classname. This makes it simple to place the applications you
want in the margin area. (Windows has a tendency to move windows out of
the margin area because it's trying to reserve that space for the appbar
(toolbar) that it thinks is there.) * Makes windows transparent based on
window caption or classname. Any level between 0 (totally transparent)
and 255 (totally visible) can be used. Only available in 2k and XP. *
Toggles windows "always on top". * Doesn't require you to keep it
running after you run the script.

album creator which will create the html page with links to each

Windows I'm not able to do everything as I would like to. I know it is

Can you add Babya System to your site? (I'll email the
download to you )


Hi, Zim, I know you are trying to let more people know about
your piece. I myself really want to know more about it, too.
Perhaps again, you could explain to me what exactly it does?
I *think* I sort of ask you about it when you ask for a
review, but somehow.... Anyway, my sincere suggestion is that
you make your description a bit clearer would really help for
me or some others to decide whether to try it out. (Again, is
it a "desktop" rather than a "shell" like Litestep?) How
would you actually find the programs useful if you are really
using it? Does it contain spyware or does it has any time
limitation? Thank you.

(btw, I *think* SOS does not just list anything. His list
contains thing that receive favourable user feedback.)
