I can’t stand plain, boring backgrounds. John’s Background Switcher (or JBS for short) periodically changes the background image on your computer (like every hour or every day) to something interesting. You can specify which pictures to choose from: Individual pictures on your computer. Folders containing pictures on your computer such as ‘My Pictures’. Flickr photo sharing – selecting pictures by person, tags, sets or just plain random.

Alice is an innovative 3D programming environment that makes it easy to create an animation for telling a story, playing an interactive game, or a video to share on the web. Alice is a freely available teaching tool designed to be a student's first exposure to object-oriented programming. It allows students to learn fundamental programming concepts in the context of creating animated movies and simple video games. In Alice, 3-D objects (e.g., people, animals, and vehicles) populate a virtual world and students create a program to animate the objects. In Alice's interactive interface, students drag and drop graphic tiles to create a program, where the instructions correspond to standard statements in a production oriented programming language, such as Java, C++, and C#. Alice allows students to immediately see how their animation programs run, enabling them to easily understand the relationship between the programming statements and the behavior of objects in their animation.

I remember that since Windows 95 or so, I always wanted to find a way to watch a movie on my PC while coding, writing or doing some other work (keeping it "always on top"). Finally, with Vista and its "DWM Desktop Composition" I was able to create a simple application that does simply that: you can clone whatever window is on your screen and watch it in a small thumbnail that always keeps on top of all other windows (even if it hasn't mouse focus). So you can watch a movie while coding, like this:
Get "parts" of a window on top. by Jun 21
