    Alias, Alias, if you are going to use Microsoft goodies you are just
    going to get used to paying for them. A tradition started by Bill back
    in the days of MS Basic. They needed the money, do you see, to make
    the weekly payroll.

    False. There are many free programs for Windows. I'm using one right
    now: Thunderbird.

    Of course there are, it was just that you sounded so "put upon" at
    having to actually pay for a program. Or don't you consider your
    rather plaintive remark - "It's too bad they don't offer a free
    version like they used to" as the fond memory of a cheaper world?

    What are you talking about? The fact that Bill is/was in business to
    make money? Or are you disputing that he pays the salary?

    Your grasp on the English language is slipping.

    I've done some research and there are plenty of free programs to monitor
    temps. I'm not familiar with your world where you think you have to pay
    for everything.

    It is up to you whether you want to consider this program. It is not a
    gadget but will do more or less what you want.

    It is not me who is recalling the good old days when a company offered
    a freeby program, it was your reminiscence.

    You don't see me wishing for "the good old days".

    It's Ibrahim here.

    But Hey - woodblown braindead BILL YANAIRE, once again posted under a fake
    name, in this case Stan's copied from Windows Vista Forum.

    Maybe Bill Yanaire should be deported back to his native Rwanda, there're
    opening in fast-food dish-washing industry there.
