Dual or Triple Monitors and Multiple Taskbars for Windows 7

If you have a dual or a triple monitor setup, and you wish to have a taskbar on the second or second and third monitor. Then you should take a look at Dual Monitor Taskbar.

It’s a free opensource program for Windows 7 that puts a taskbar on your second monitor if you have dual monitor setup or on your second and third monitor if you have a triple monitor setup. I haven’t tried a quad monitor setup or beyond, please let me know if you have in the comments.

Here is a list of configuration options.

  • General
    • Automatically start with Windows
    • Check for Updates
  • Taskbar Appearance
    • Show lables
    • Show clock
    • Mirror mode
    • Use small icons
    • Show notification area
    • Show start button
    • Use custom font
    • Auto-hide the taskbar
  • Taskbar location
    • Mutliple display support
    • Options for Bottom, Left, Right, Top

Below is a screenshot of the settings, and notepad on a second monitor. As you can see, it’s hard to tell the different from a normal Windows 7 taskbar.

If you have a program running on your second or third screen, it will show on the taskbar for that monitor, so it makes it easy to locate your programs windows.

There is similar software that you can purchase, however Dual Monitor Taskbar seems to get the job done and is free.

lighttpd won’t start and doesn’t output or log any error message

I was working on a server and for some reason lighttpd wouldn't start for some odd reason. Running it via Debian/Ubuntu "invoke-rc.d lighttpd start" or "/etc/init.d/lighttpd start" wouldn't reveal an error message or anything in the log.

I hop'd on irc.freenode.net and put some information about my problem in the channel #lighttpd channel.

Apple releases iPhone 2.0.2 Firmware/Update

It has only been a few weeks and Apple has already released an updated firmwave for the iPhone. Could this mean Apple isn't going to sit on bugfixes, are more updates going to be released in the same short time span. A couple of weeks is really short, however a couple of months to improve some iPhone features, fix bugs or release new functionality is something that should be embraced.
