Life in code, apps and OS's

Archive for July 2009

As I was made voluntary redundant from the company I was working at on friday (well pending an interview tomorrow morning at 10am) I have decided that I would make a nice new little Microsoft Windows application that would log (to a web-interface) users logon and logoff information that integrated with logon scripts.

LogonWatcher would be distributed as a free application and server software, The client machine (using a logon script) would call the executable program that would then talk to the server and log the logon/logoff information to a MySQL database.


Yesterday I decided to download the Windows Essentials pack from, I’ve never really used Live Messenger as I don’t really like it, I hate having to talk to people when im busy working on stuff but anyway I’ve re-installed my PC and decided to give it ago.

This blog post is written using Windows Live – Live Writer and it is a really great idea, I am so impressed, I love using this tool and makes blogging so much more easier and quicker!

The live essentials pack in general has loads of great features such as the Outlook connector so you can read and send emails from your live account using Microsoft Outlook.

You also get the Windows Live Mail client which is a nice interface to the webmail (otherwise known as Hotmail).

Overall im really impressed with this 🙂
