Marxio Timer….The End-All-Be-All of multifunction timers for Windows

Windows
Looks like I've been neglecting Windows apps for a while. So here is a neat free (donationware) application......Marxio Timer . It's a "simple" timer program that can pretty much do anything a user does on a pre-programmed timer loop. You can set Marxio Timer to perform a preset action or set it to execute an application or keystrokes of your choice. You can specify a time or have it perform the action after a recurrent event like your computer idling or when CPU usage reaches a certain percentage. Marxio Timer has password protection and will even take a screenshot at the moment if you need to document it. One of the handier features is the ability to save your settings, a big time saver if you've created a number of elaborate…

Okay so the title is long....but now you know what's coming....right? TPMG (Toronto Photography Meetup Group) visited The Carlu courtesy of Jenn. We were group number four and there was 15 of us. The Carlu , for those of you who don't know, is the new name given to the 7th floor of Eaton's College Street store. An Art Moderne masterpiece, the Eaton's Seventh Floor was at the heart of Toronto's cultural life for many years. The Auditorium played host to the major performers of its day, including Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington and Frank Sinatra. The first performance of the National Ballet of Canada was on the stage of the Eaton Auditorium. Canada's own Glenn Gould, fond of the Auditorium's excellent acoustics, used the hall for a number of his recordings. I'm get to…
