2 Windows Taskbars On Dual Monitors Windows 7

Dual monitors are awesome but can be a little restrictive in the default windows environment.

Normally you can only have one taskbar so when you have windows on the 2nd monitor they clutter up your one and only taskbar.

Now you can have 2 taskbars and more on your monitors, it feels like you are running multiple computers!

Multi Monitor Taskbar – Freeware & Even works with the latest Windows 7 unlike Ultramon(another monitor solution but $40)

or Direct download HERE

Screenshot of my monitors next to each other: image

UPDATE: ULTRAMON now supports Windows 7. Goto here for latest download.


Amazing Striped Icebergs Images

Got this in a email from Dad:

Icebergs in the Antarctic area sometimes have stripes, formed by
layers of snow that react to different conditions.

Blue stripes are often created when a crevice in the ice sheet
fills up with meltwater and freezes so quickly that no bubbles form.
When an iceberg falls into the sea, a layer of salty seawater can
freeze to the underside. If this is rich in algae, it can form a
green stripe.

Brown, black and yellow lines are caused by sediment, picked up
when the ice sheet grinds downhill towards the sea.



ROFL With Rhys – Lame, Clean Youth Jokes

At Phat Camp 09 run by CCECYOUTH this year i had my own segment with juniors (year 7-9) called ROFL with Rhys. I thought I’d share the jokes with you, give you a giggle or could be handy for other youth groups to use.

Windows 7 Decoder Error In Media Center

My TV was working fine when i first installed the Beta but today when i opened it up i got the error “"The video decoder has either malfunctioned or is not installed. Restart Windows Media Center or the computer”.”

Solution: Turn your Clock date back to February and it works!

For some reason its a bug and the decoder expires before the beta expiry..

UPDATE: Fix the problem completely with this solution:

The .dll files are ready for download :
To install (on your own risk!!):
1. start a command prompt  (as administrator)
2. cd c:\windows\system32
3. takeown /f filename.dll (for all mentioned .dll files)
4. icacls filename.dll /grant your_name:F (again for all .dll files)
5. md c:\temp 
6. move filename.dll c:\temp (all .dll files)
7. now copy all files from the downloaded zip into c:\windows\system32
8. restart the machine

Australian Mobile Plan Chooser – Find The Cheapest Plan

Please let me know if you want a specific plan added or you have found an error in the spreadsheet (which is possible)


  • Gives best plan option, giving you option to input calls, mms, text, data usage and more.
  • Can add Data Packs
  • Auto Sort
  • Great Design
  • Light background on cells that are formulas
  • Direct link to the plans.

Current Flaws:

  • Need Excel 2007 or plugin for 2003 to view.
  • Doesn’t take into account if you have 5 services the ammount you would save for free calls to same network.
  • Not sure if Virgin includes pay as you go data in cap. If not, real cost will be higher.

Coming Soon:

  • More information about plans.

NOTE: Before purchasing a plan it is good to check if all detals are are to date and you have read the flaws of the spreadsheet, making sure the flaw doesnt effect the rank of the plan your buying.
