Well thanks to Tim Heuer I can offer you up a possible solution to that time consuming and watch the paint boring process. I was reading a post of Tim’s very early this morning , or perhaps very late last night, where he was talking about getting a laptop that he had just put a new drive into and the list of programs he considers to be the must have installed on any of his systems. As I looked over the list I saw an entry for something called Ninite and being the curious type I clicked through to have a look.
