Before trying to write the script myself (something I know will take me hours to get right), let me ask: is there a “little program” out there that will display a Word or Notepad document (say C:\exercise.doc) on my XP desktop every 30 minutes?
I want exercise.doc to remind me to get up from the chair in front of my pc and do some back strengthening exercises. Obviously, it would have many other uses.

Desktop reminder program, lots out there, but I have never used one.
and post back. Let us know if it worked.

There is no such thing as overkill. 'Open fire' and 'is it dead?' are the only sane options when threatened.

Can't believe this thread is still up after all these years (over 11 now). Anyway, I've got a couple programs to add that I didn't find listed when I searched through the thread.
This is an excellent replacement for plain old Notepad and it has tons of cool features. If you're a programmer or website designer, the program recognizes all the major programming languages and will change the color and indentation of code to be easily read. It even has tabs so you can work back and forth between several documents at once.
http://www.7-zip.org/ Replacement and improvement over Winzip and/or Windows' built-in zipping and unzipping feature. Lets you perform a number of functions, including unzipping files by right-clicking on them and selecting 7-zip from the menu. Works with .zip, .tar, .wim, and it's own .7z files which offer better compression over zipping.
PS3 Media Server
http://www.ps3mediaserver.org/ If you own a PS3 and want to be able to stream all of your media from your computer to your TV, you have to get this program. Takes all the hassle out of it. It works with pretty much any video format, including .MKV files. Available on Windows, Mac and even Linux.
Anyway, that's all I've got for now. Cheers!

One of my favourite freebies is Convert (http://joshmadison.com/convert-for-windows//) I'm frequently surprised how often I use it.
And another that I like is Top OCR (http://topocr.findmysoft.com/) There are probably better OCR programs out there, but this does a pretty good job when I need it. Have to do a little proof-reading, but that is no big deal.
What if the Hokey Cokey IS what it's all about?
