Freeware - Firstlines

FirstLines is a freeware program inspired by a Penguin Classics screensaver that was released in 2005. Unfortunately it only showed 3 quotes, so I decided to write my own.

Using this application you can configure the quote file to use, font details, and the colour. Follow the format in the sample quote file (FirstLines.txt) to add new quotes. There is also provided an extended quotes file (FirstLinesExtended.txt) that provides a lot more quotes.

Download. VB6 source is included in download.

To install:
1. Copy the FirstLines. folder to a location on your harddrive
2. Right-Click on the FirstLines.scr after the copy and select Install
3. Configure the settings and then preview.
