Mouse Manager This small and popular utility is designed for one purpose: to let you set the Fourth and Fifth Buttons on your mouse to any keyboard key or series of keys you choose.

Random BackGround This simple application provides the ability to change the background image of your desktop automatically. While newer versions of Windows include this "Slideshow" feature, Random BackGround provides different settings which can be used even on these modern Operating Systems, such as a maximum scale limit and the ability to choose between unique images on each screen.

News and Site Changes

[June 25, 2017] AdBlock, bitcoin, VirusTotal, and SLIPS7REAM

 Alright, first of all, I'd like to apologize for the delay in updating SLIPS7REAM. There are a few major changes regarding Updates I'd like to make, particularly in being able to handle more complicated relations, such as having an update integrated in one Image Package and not in another and still being able to add it to the one that's missing it, as well as handling requirements and replacements better. This will take some time, as I'm not aware of any truly functional list of Windows 7's many updates and their relations to each other. The Microsoft Update Catalog is a bit of a mess in that regard.
 Secondly, those of you using an ad blocker and those of you disabling javascript for one reason or another, I count myself among you, but I also run a website. So you may notice ads that show up anyway, and for only one service at the moment: Moon Bitcoin. What is Moon Bitcoin? In bitcoin terminology, it's a Faucet. It's basically a way of making a little free bitcoin currency for clicking a button every five minutes. There's also surveys, slideshows, videos, and other offers which can provide you with more bitcoin all at once, and provide a bonus to the amount you receive for clicking the button. If you ever wanted to learn the ins and outs of bitcoin, a faucet like Moon Bitcoin would be the place to start without the worry of investing "real" money into what is currently a growing curiosity.
 Which brings me to the next thing I'd like to mention, which is that I'm now accepting donations in bitcoin or by mail on the Make a Donation page. Donations provide far more support than ads for my products, and many of my users are unexpectedly generous, so having had requests for both these forms of donations in the past, I decided to add them during my latest tweaks to this site. I'd like to extend my thanks to all those who have donated in the past, and to any that choose to donate in the future. Depending on how the next few months go, I may end up removing ads altogether in favor of donations. In fact, certain pages have already had ads removed from them entirely.
 Finally, I've created a quick script on (nearly) every product page that checks the popular (and now Google-owned) VirusTotal database for the latest 60 or so major AntiVirus scanners' scan results for the product's current version. You can quickly see the results for yourself through a helpful link. The script also tries to weigh the results by saying that less than a 25% detection ratio is likely a false positive, but that any more than that is a potential infection. Regardless of assumed quality of the detection, you can see which scanners detected a problem, and the name they detect it under. I hope this provides some external proof of safety and quality in the products released on this site.
 Also, regarding SLIPS7REAM, I realize Windows 7 will be considered defunct in about two and a half years, but it's still the best Microsoft Operating System available, and almost anything that runs on it runs on the latest version of Windows as well, so it may end up being used for a long time in virtual environments as it seems to render more cleanly in virtual environments than newer Operating Systems. I will not continue to suggest use of Windows 7 past its "death" date for security reasons, but I will continue to update SLIPS7REAM under the assumption that its purpose is not completely ended.

[June 18, 2017] Satellite Restriction Tracker 1.4.14 Released

 Exede is having a few issues, so I've thrown out a new version which bypasses the problem and logs in correctly every time. I've also resolved an issue that may have cropped up for RuralPortal users who purchased more data, and fixed a problem for Linux and OS X users that use the Internet Speed Test Website feature. If you run into any problems, as always, please report them or contact me, or both if you'd like a direct response. I'm always glad to help!

[May 25, 2017] Source Code in Full Color (and a Quick Fix)

 GeSHi has been updated for the first time in three years, so I've added the new version to my GIT Repository viewer, and added in most the file types I use. Almost every plain-text file in the repository will now have full syntax highlighting, providing a clean reading experience. While generally only useful to developers interested in the source code, providing readable source code for my projects is my guarantee that these programs are safe and truly free. Literally anyone can copy the code, make a few minor changes, and create their own customized version. That's the magic of Open Source!
 Also, I had updated the installers for Satellite Restriction Tracker and Advanced Mouse Manager to install .NET 4.7 on Windows 7, 8, and 10, but have reverted back to 4.6.2 due to numerous issues regarding compatibility and an un-included but required update. If you want to install .NET 4.7, install it yourself.

 Jerry, I'm still waiting to hear back from you. Has the issue occurred again yet?

RealityRipple    May 16, 3:05 AM
 Woah, okay, so the problem cropped up again. I don't trust it not to keep happening, so I'll be pushing out a new version for now.

RealityRipple    May 12, 8:05 PM
 Has the problem resolved itself for both of you now? I'm keeping an eye on it, myself, but it looks like the slight change they made has been reverted again.

 Installed v1.4.1 update yesterday and SRT no longer works. SRT error msg: SRT encountered data it does not understand.

 For anyone that noticed the tray icon's graph starts off wrong on the computer's startup, then gets "corrected" later, the next version will take care of it. Sorta waiting for something else to go wrong before making a release, but I'll push up a new version on the 1st if nothing else happens.

 I need some help testing out the new version before I put it up for release. Particularly integrating drivers and toggling features and all that fun stuff. Since it takes a lot of time and I only have two computers, it's very difficult to test all the different possibilities SLIPS7REAM has now. If you're interested in trying v3.19, please contact me in any way you see fit. The only requirement is that if it spits out a log file on your desktop, you have to send that file to me. (Don't worry, it doesn't contain anything weird, and you can read it yourself. And unless there's actually a problem, no log file will be created.)

Mouse Manager: 40 Comments

 I'm afraid Mouse Manager and Advanced Mouse Manager only have the option to emulate keyboard keys, not mouse buttons.
