Billy Mays Caps Lock: HERE'S HOW TO ORDER!

Let me start off this post by saying that I am not in any way mocking Billy Mays. His passing was indeed unfortunate, and, although I never actually bought any of the products he advertised, I can most definitely say that his were my favorite commercials. While I will not get all sappy and fill this post with "RIP"s and "We'll miss you"s, I will say that commercials will never be the same without him.

Caps lock is such a strange key, do we ever really use it? Besides the obnoxious kids online that seem to forget it's on, when do we need to type in all caps for an extended period of time? Well, now you can turn Capslock into something fun! With Billy Mays Caps Lock, everytime you press Capslock, Billy will spout out one of his most famous sayings.

In addition, a little Billy Mays head will rest in your tray, and you can still use Capslock if you hold any key before pressing it (ie, Shift+Capslock, Alt+Capslock, F+Capslock, etc.)


That's about it. It's a very funny little app, sure to bring you some joy. It's very small, portable, actually hosted at PortableApps, and open source. It, and all of the sounds that come with it, are only around 1mb combined, so it's also very tiny. The source is also very easy to read (only 56 lines of code), written in Autohotkey, so if you maybe want to find more soundclips, just crack open the AHK file, add it on, then drop the WAV file in the same directory as the others.
