I have a suggestion for Matt Carpenter, who wrote a letter (December 1996) complaining about having to hit the Connect button every time he used Dial-Up Networking in Win95: There is a great little (freeware) utility called Dunce that will automatically press the Connect button for you when you double-click on your Internet Connection icon on your desktop. Not only will Dunce autoconnect for you, but it will redial until you connect to your ISP (in case of the rare busy signal) or if you get disconnected for some reason while online. It can be found at http://www.windows95.com/apps/dialup.html.
