serve to make your job as a SalesLogix user, administrator, or developer
marginally more amusing.
The current version is...
actually, there is no version number.

We wasted our valuable time so you wouldn't have to
SalesLogix developer, and have been for many, many years. During a
typical day, I'll open,
close, and refresh SalesLogix (and its various supporting applications) dozens, maybe even hundreds of times. It's not like I keep count. Anyway,
like most business software, SalesLogix has a boring splash screen. It's
not ugly; it's just sort of bland and inoffensive. I got tired
of that splash-screen image pretty quickly, so I took
advantage of an undocumented feature that lets you use your own, simply
by putting a file called "SLXSplash.bmp" in the same folder as
SalesLogix itself. That was nice, but pretty soon I got tired of that
splash screen too, so I made up another one. And then another, and
another, and another...
while, I had so many splash screens (and background tiles, since SLX lets
you specify those too), I couldn't keep track of them all. Also, it was
tedious to have to delete the old bitmap and change the new bitmap's
filename whenever I wanted to replace it, so I moved all of my splash
bitmaps into a set of subfolders, and wrote a simple little program to select
a different one each time it ran. The program did all the file-copying
and renaming automatically, displayed the new splash for two seconds,
and then ended itself. After that, I came up with the brilliant
idea to put the program in my Startup folder, so I'd have a new splash
screen every single day. And, of course, I kept making more splash screens.
than keep this startlingly advanced technology to myself, I decided to
release it so that other people like me could experience the tremendous
joy and inner peace than only a new splash screen each day can bring.
The result is SPLASHMAGIX for
SalesLogix® - and best of all, it's absolutely free! It comes with
the 12 splash bitmaps below, and there are two additional sets of 12
each you can download when you get bored with those. (Don't worry, none
of them display the JH3 name or logo, though the program itself
does. Something has to, after all.)
software companies, we take no responsibility whatsoever
for any trouble SplashMagix may cause when your employer sees a strange -
though somehow far more attractive - splash screen bitmap on your monitor when you open SalesLogix, and
starts to wonder if you're really taking your job all that seriously.
