what is this page?
I made this page in order to share the scripts I've written for use with
BgInfo, by SysInternals.
what is BgInfo?
BgInfo is an awesome and free little utility which lets you insert various system (or other) info
into your Windows desktop. It even preserves existing wallpaper.
Coolest of all, it's highly extendable, because it allows you to insert custom info from the
Registry, Environment variables, WMI, files, or (my favorite) Windows Script files!
Browse some of the BgInfo scripts I've written.
They're standard WSH-capable scripts -- they just also "echo" their output to BgInfo.
- Get time of your last login
- Get current public IP address
- Get currently free RAM
- Get Weather for your zip code (updated!)
In case you were deluded otherwise, I'm not providing support for the scripts
(nor for BgInfo).
I wrote it all for my own use, and just thought I'd share the wealth.
It's freely-offered, so Enjoy!
how about a gallery?
If you're already a fan/scripter of BgInfo,
drop a line to BgInfo's author, Bryce Cogswell,
and suggest they setup a gallery where we can all exchange our scripts.
As-is, etc. If you ask nicely, I may provide support via email.

Use freely, but be honest about it. I just ask for credit.
