Here's a collection of some of the software we’ve put together - it's all completely
free for personal use and we hope you'll find at least some of it useful.
While all the software here is used at your own risk, those in a mid-development
state, and expected to have 'bugs', are shown as "Beta" versions and are best used
within a test environment prior to any use within a live environment - this is especially
true if you're a corporate user! In any case, as with all other software, while
it’s thoroughly tested, we can’t accept any responsibility for issues caused by the
use, or misuse, of it ... though we will of course try our best to investigate and
correct any issues reported to us.
Now that the obligatory disclaimer is out of the way, please feel free to download
anything that you suspect you'll find useful - if you've then got any questions,
comments, complaints or praise, please don't hesitate to contact us using the Contact
menu above or via the AmberSoftware.co.uk forums.

to a mobile 'phone via a dial-up modem.

a batch file!

'broadcast' different messages to users at multiple remote sites in a non-intrusive

type (i.e. whether it's 'informational', 'warning' or 'critical'), which sites the
message should be 'broadcast' to and how long the message should be displayed for.

quick access to all those frequently used documents, folders, URLs or applications.
In corporate environments, BeTrayed! also has a few configuration options useful
to system administrators who wish to deploy a standard collection of Tray Icons.
