Software for an alert marquee

I'm looking for a software package that will function as an alert marquee. i have a series of displays that I would like to have a banner across the top of the screen. I'd like this software to monitor a mailbox or receive an RPC message to display a short message. Basically I want a desktop version of a text message alert for a few status monitor PCs with large wall mount monitors. Does anyone have an existing solution? I'd prefer not to have to write my own.

Looking for software for windows to tag movies and tv shows media files for itunes.

I had been using a mac to keep my media files and had been using "Ripit" to rip my DVD's and "identify" to tag the resulting files and put into itunes to watch on Apple TV. Due to file space I have moved to a PC running Windows 7 to do this. And while I have found software to rip the DVD's I cannot find software to add the tags such as "synopsis", "cover art", and "episode details"? You suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Me-Fi

Case Studies required of Software Business Failures?

I would be interested in hearing case studies for software business failures that have occurred due to one or both of the following factors: - Wholesale replacement of entire engineering staff (e.g. firing all staff in original location and replacing with staff in a new location). - Winding down product development on existing products with the expectation that it will be replaced by a new platform in the future (I'm thinking along the lines of Ashton Tate here and their DBase product). I would also be interested in hearing any examples of where either of these strategies has been put into effect, and it been a success, rather than a failure. [more inside]

Compiling an open source project in Visual Studio for dummies?

I need to compile an open-source software package, originally intended for a POSIX machine, in Visual Studio. I am comfortable with the ./configure > make > make install cycle, having done it many times, but I have never used VS in my life. Can someone explain to me like I am six, what I would do to begin doing this in VS? I can't make a makefile, because configure is a bash script. I realize I could use MinGW or Cygwin, but I've been asked to avoid that if possible. I already have VS (C++ version) and also SDK installed on a Win 7 box. Let's assume for this question that using a pre-built binary is not an option.
