SSThingy Screen Shots


This page displays screen shots of "SSThingy" - an application I developed that allows Windows users to conveniently control their screen saver, which is useful for protecting sensitive on-screen information, etc.

The SSThingy UI is composed primarily of a property sheet and eight property pages. The screen saver can be controlled by the user through SSThingy via the mouse and keyboard. By placing the mouse in a "hot corner" for a user specified period of time, the user can instruct SSThingy to enable, disable, or start the screen saver (among other things.) The same functionality can be accomplished via "hot keys" - special user defined key combinations, which when pressed, cause SSThingy to perform some action. I originally developed this application in 1997 because I wanted to be able to hide sensitive on-screen information from those who tend to "pop in" unexpectedly. At the time it also turned out to be pretty handy while burning CD-ROMS. Back then, if the screen saver would kick in it usually meant my burn process would create another drink coaster. :-/
