Mouse Manager
v1.6 (June 14, 2018)
Desktop Enhancement
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. A simple Tray icon provides access to multiple profiles, letting you select which key commands you want to use with your mouse with a couple clicks.

Supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.

Satellite Restriction Tracker

Random BackGround
v1.4.4 (February 26, 2013)
Desktop Enhancement
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.

Supports Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.

In The Dark

Border Cursors
v2.0 (January 2, 2016)
Desktop Enhancement
These cursors are designed to be minimalist and keep the mouse from blocking what's behind it. They come in a variety of colors with normal, large, and extra large sizes for each.

Supports Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.

Advanced Mouse Manager
v1.7 (June 14, 2018)
Desktop Enhancement
This tool allows you to override your mouse's Fourth and Fifth Buttons to generate keyboard key actions rather than their default use as back/forward shortcuts. You can even change which keys are used depending on which program you're using. Multiple profiles let you choose between common key uses for each program through the handy Tray icon.

Supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.

News and Site Changes

🕛 July 14, 2018  New Payment Method in Testing

 I've been using PayPal for as long as this site's been around, and they've always been a useful and important tool for keeping this website going. However, their customer experience is sorely lacking, and many users have expressed displeasure at being forced to use PayPal. In order to provide more options, I've begun integrating Stripe alongside PayPal, allowing for direct Credit and Debit Card payments. The Stripe system is a lot more complicated, but also a lot more open, giving me more control over the interface and functionality.
 The new payment methods for Advanced Mouse Manager and Satellite Restriction Tracker's Remote Usage Service are up and running, but they likely still have many bugs to be ironed out. If you're feeling adventurous, you're welcome to try making a payment using the Credit or Debit Card option, but I'd suggest waiting for a few more days at least. When the system's ready, I will be placing the option before PayPal rather than after it, as the system requests much less personal information and should be a much faster and friendlier experience. The Donation page will also include this option, when I'm satisfied the system is working as expected.
 The buttons may disappear while I'm doing work - I try to hide the interface during testing - but any successful payments will be recorded and handled manually if the code doesn't work correctly. So it's important that if you do pay with a Credit or Debit Card, you include a working contact E-Mail address. Thank you all for your patience and support.

🕧 June 8, 2018  Removed all Third Party Elements (Including Ads)

 Due to constraints on user privacy imposed by the European Union and the limitations of corporate entities as a result, I've decided to annoy you less, rather than more. Therefore, I have completely removed Google Analytics, Google AdSense, and the AddThis widgets which reside on this website, rather than add an annoying notice about privacy and cookies to retain the functionality of annoying components.
 As of now, I'm relying entirely on donations from all of you to keep this website running. I hope to have some new versions and new releases available shortly. At present, I'm not sure what direction to take my work, but it most certainly will not include user tracking or advertising.

🕐 May 21, 2018  Farewell to Satellite

 After a lifetime of Dial-Up and Satellite Internet access due to my location in rural California, I have finally achieved a connection worthy of the modern era, thanks to Ranch WiFi. Yay me. But what does this mean for you?
 Satellite Restriction Tracker users, I will no longer be one of you. If something goes wrong, I won't notice immediately anymore. Now, more than ever, it's important to let me know about any issues with connections or the program in general. Without your help, there's no way I can keep on top of ViaSat's changes.
 Slips7ream will be back on the development table now that I can quickly grab new and old update files without worrying about a monthly limit or being trapped behind a restriction. It's going to be a high priority on my list until a good release version is made, which is likely to be the final one, as Windows 7 support draws to a close. I may try to create alternate versions for Windows 8 and 10, depending on how things go.
 Website visitors won't notice any difference. I'm not suddenly going to abandon my minimalist style simply because I can load mass amounts of data in fractions of a second. Due to my perspective as a long-time low-bandwidth user, I've ended up with the view that much of the Internet is bloated with poorly managed data exchange because of spoiled developers. Kilobytes and Megabytes mean nothing in a world of HD streaming, and as most website data rarely goes beyond a maximum of about 5 MB per page initially, people seem okay with needing that much in every case, when most cases should be mere kilobytes. I will continue to do my best by those with limited connections, and not abandon data conservation practices, not only for the sake of users, but for the sake of cleanliness and efficiency in my code.
 Other projects will get their own information as I get more work done. If you'd like to keep up-to-date on what's going on behind the scenes, you can check out my GitHub repository.

 Those looking to remap back and forward can use keyboard combination Alt Left Arrow for going browsing backward and Alt Right Arrow for forward. Tested and it works, but remember to press Save and then Close, otherwise it wont apply.

 ok thanks

🌐In The Dark for Pale Moon (Bloodmoon Edition) 💬 4 Comments

Steve Silvi    Jun 10, 6:58 AM
 Yep, that did it. Apparently that config setting did not "take" when I installed Pale Moon, as the value was set to '1' (close buttons on all tabs). After setting it to '0' and then back to '1', there are close buttons on all tabs now.

Steve Silvi    Jun 10, 6:50 AM
 Thanks for responding. I'll give that a go...

RealityRipple    Jun 6, 9:36 AM
 That feature is controlled by an about:config option, browser.tabs.closeButtons. For more information, see <>.

Steve Silvi    Jun 6, 6:07 AM
 Awesome theme! I especially like the larger icons and the muted red color that doesn't jump out at me. However, there is no "X" on the right side of the tabs to close them individually. Is this intentional. It seems the only way to close a tab is to right-click and select "Close tab". Not a deal-breaker, but maybe a bit more clunky than just clicking on the "X". Anyhow, thanks for a cool theme!

 Ooo...kay. Looks like Exede took care of it right while I was in the middle of working on it. I found a bug in SRT that will need a new version to fix, but I'm reticent to push out a new version so soon after the first signs of a change.
