Mikes Retro Software of the Week 2/13/08
Little known(unless your a XP expert) Applications from Microsoft that really never went anywhere. Like the "shplayer" that is or was supposed to be the Shell media player for XP however rumor has it being axed on or before RTM. On a different note another outsourced XP(media player 9)powertoy for having a video screen saver was very cool until Microsoft released Media player 10 and 11 and the app broke. Since the original writer (AnalogX) of the app has not been heard from for a while no more updates ......

Because lets face it. Who has time and the energy to do it themselves? Yes your CPA and or H and R block but they typically charge you.

So long ago and many many times infinity(2nd grade reference there). I downloaded the Internet. Any cool app I found. Some I wish I had kept. I then found myself in a pickle when the downloaded software had been updated or duplicated in another folder so I had multiple copies of different versions (good or bad) and no way to keep track of any of them. So I found Dupelocater.exe. Drag folders from Windows Explorer into the DupeLocater.exe window and press Search. When finished, drag the report duplicates ......

Paypal PayFlow Pro Code.
To help clear up confusion on how to write against the Paypal SDK: Update to the PayFlowPro issues with Paypal. First and foremost Paypal support is awesome. Second the PayPal Developer Community needs some work from my perspective. While Admin_ToddS was right. It was like pulling teeth to get info. Also they seriously need to rebuild the SDK with better documentation. Perhaps I will take it upon myself to push a better SDK out next post. Here is the code I ended up using as you will see it was much ......
