If you're a member of the social networking community Orkut, you'll appreciate this chat accessory for letting you know when other members send you new scraps. Scrapboy's interface features the official logo and is a simple dialog box for signing into your Orkut account. After signing in, Scrapboy's icon resides in the system tray. An alert pops up when a new scrap arrives, and you can read it without navigating to the Orkut Web site, saving you time from continually checking the site for updated messages. The right-click menu also provides quick access to your Friends list, and you can turn off message alerts if you wish. During testing, the program performed quickly and without any glitches. Orkut members who want to save time from checking the site frequently for scraps will find Scrapboy to be a simple and easy-to-use solution.
