  Wallpaper Randomizer is a small system tray wallpaper changer.
  It lets you:
    • See a different wallpaper whenever you start Windows.
    • Change wallpaper on regular intervals.
    • Change wallpaper using a hotkey.
  When running it for the first time, you will be prompted to specify where is 
  your photos or wallpapers directory.
  Wallpaper Randomizer is completely unobstrusive. 
  It requires no installation, has no user interface and does not write anything
  in the registry - All functions are controlled through the system tray menu.
  You can enable or disable Walllpaper Randomizer at any time.
  Supported image formats: BMP, PNG, JPG and GIF.
Technical Notes
  Wallpaper Randomizer uses the ToPNG command line utility 
  ( which is included in the downloaded package.

  0.35  2009 10 04

  0.20  2007 02 18
    Fixed  : unexpected behaviour, probably caused by unstable AutoHotkey 
             build - no change was done in the code, but this version is
             compiled with AHK 1.0.46 instead of
  0.19  2007 02 01
    Added  : Shift+Win+F5 shortcut for Previous Wallpaper
  0.18  2007 01 31
    Changed: wallpapers are now stored in a random order and are displayed
             sequentially, as opposed to just generate a random wallpaper
             from a list. this prevents the same wallpaper to appear twice,
             unless the entire list was displayed already.
  0.17  2007 01 14
    Added  : the state of the Pause option is now stored in the INI file. 
             this is useful if you only want Wallpaper Randomizer to change
             your wallpaper upon system start.
             You may still unpause it, or use the Refresh Now option to 
             change the wallpaper.
    Updated: installer

  0.16  2006 10 06
    Changed: compiled with new LiveUpdate version - now if no internet 
             connection, we will park and retry every 10 minutes, until 
             a connection is established

  0.11  2006 09 15
    Changed: Now scanning subfolders as well

    Removed: Sleep time before changing to new image. Was there to let the
