As a tribute to one of our favorite TV personalities, the unofficial Billy Mays Caps Lock 1.0 utility has been released. It lets you turn your caps lock key into something far more useful: a Billy Mays key. So, every time you hit Caps Lock, you hear one of Billy Mays' famous phrases. A simple, fun app as a change of pace. It's packaged in PortableApps.com Format so it can easily integrate with the PortableApps.com Suite. And it's open source and completely free.

To start Billy Mays Caps Lock, just click on the Billy Mays Caps Lock icon in your Windows Start Menu (or, with the portable version, in your PortableApps.com Menu). In your system tray, you'll see a small Billy Mays icon to indicate that it's running. While it's running, whenever you hit your Caps Lock key, you'll hear Billy Mays say:
- "Hi, Billy Mays here"
- "It'll make your whites, whiter"
- "Order right now and we'll double the value"
- "Here's how to order"
Who was Billy Mays?
Billy Mays was a popular and successful American info-mercial personality who went on to star in the popular TV series PitchMen on Discover Channel. His distinctive beard and 'caps lock' sales pitches made him an easily recognized presence, and drove up sales of nearly every product he pitched. His son, Billy Mays III, is working on setting up a foundation in his name.
We miss you, Billy Mays
