We never send unsolicited email and you are receiving Neat Net Tricks
because you (or someone at your computer) subscribed to it. If you do not

Blame it on a full moon, senility, or the fact that I've been on the road for 
nearly two months trying to juggle two editions of Neat Net Tricks (standard 
and Premium) whenever fortunate enough to acquire an Internet connection; 
whatever the cause, it seems the latest issue of this Standard edition  carried 
an incorrect issue number (196) instead of 197 and contents were repeated from 
previous issues. Amazingly, no one noticed or responded (hey, folks, don't you 
read this stuff?)

To atone, I am sending out an extra issue with this email, numbered correctly, 
and with tips not previously included in NNT. I have also removed the incorrect 
October 2 mailing from the Archive. By the way, this is an excellent 
opportunity to remind readers that all issues of the Standard (free) NNT 
edition can be viewed online in the Archive at 
http://www.freelists.org/archives/neatnettricks/ .

intriguing?  So's the price - it's free.  Download at

02.  DESKSAVE.  As you probably know, when your desktop resolution is changed, 
the icons go crazy.  They won't with DeskSave because you can recover any 
previously saved icon layout either automatically or manually.  Download free

but, the quality of the one offered voice is good.
