Welcome to Glenn’s Eclectic Freeware.

This is the home of Desktop Info and Desktop Calendar.

I have chosen to be ‘selective’ so if you’ve come looking for the other projects that used to live here, you’re out of luck. They are way too old and irrelevant and I prefer to quietly bury them. If you look hard enough, you’ll find them around the traps.

I am also the current keeper of Snappy Driver Installer Origin, a free and open source Windows driver installation and update tool.

If you’re looking for some new and interesting music to listen to while monitoring your servers, take a look at my list of Great Albums.

By the way, I took that photo through the car window one Winter morning.

  • Desktop Info v2.5 Released 14 April 2020 - What started out as a couple of quick fixes to deal with display issues has turned into a major refactor of the display routines.
