UPDATE YOUR BOOKMARKS!!!
We have an issue that there is no way around as of yet.
I have done all I can to try and prevent this from happening.
We are going to be losing the .com, .org and .de domains.
We have not been able to contact the original author of EventGhost
(the person that owns those domains) to redirect them to the new web server.
I set in motion when we first moved a redirection from the old server to the new server.
I also put in markers so that search engines would see this change and update any pointers
they have. We still have the .net domain for the production site. and the .rocks for the test site.
For the past few months you have been getting redirected to the .net site if you used one of the 3
domains mentioned above. I just wanted to tell everyone so they can make any changes needed.
The `System.Idle` event fires once, after the computer has been idle for about a minute. I wanted to track how long the computer had been idle, so I created this fairly simple setup. It requires the Timer plugin (which ships with EventGhost).
With this enabled, you get a `Timer.Idle.N` event every minute, where N is the number of minutes since the `System.Idle` event fired. (They stop appearing when the `System.UnIdle` event fires.) I use this to fire up iTunes' visualization mode as my screensaver after 5 minutes, but I'm sure there are other uses.

If anyone was curious about how I did that, here's (a trimmed down copy of) my tree for doing that. It uses new actions that I added to the iTunes plugin, which is one reason I didn't post it earlier.
Summary of how it works:
The "iTunes as screensaver" folder has a macro that triggers on Timer.Idle.5 which turns on iTunes' visualization and brings it to the front. There's another one that turns it off if it detects System.UnIdle.
The above folder is disabled in normal use, so my regular screensaver comes up when iTunes isn't playing. Actions in the "Detecting programs" folder enable the first folder when it thinks iTunes is playing, and disables it when it thinks iTunes is stopped.
