Enjoy desktop quotes or any messages, jokes, lyrics, questions, with Cookie Feeder

Cookie Feeder is a free and tiny program you can use to deliver short messages contained in a simple text file. The messages or “cookies” can be jokes, quotations, thoughts, song lyrics, stories, exam questions, even random numbers! Anyone can modify the text file or use some other text file that contains the messages.

Cookie Feeder is accessible through the icon tray of Windows. To get a “cookie”, just click once the cookie icon in the icon tray. To get another one, click on the “More” button. If you close the cookie feeder window, the program will be running in the background and the icon will still be in the icon tray. To exit the program, right click the cookie icon in the icon tray and select the option “Exit”.

To change the cookies, you must change the text file that is associated with the program. The text file has a *.txt filetype and is normally located in the same folder as the program, depending on where you have extracted it. Otherwise you can choose your own file by right-clicking the cookie icon in the icon tray and selecting the option “Load Cookies…”. The file itself must be text only, and every cookie within the file is separated by a line containing only the three consecutive characters ###. The file starts with a ### line and after every cookie there is a ### line.

Unfortunately the program does not include a timer, you can trigger the next quote only manually.
