Living Room / Thank you for "Send Shortcut There" and others
« on: January 25, 2009, 11:34 PM »
Thank you for writing "Send Shortcut There".  It does exactly what I wanted and I expect to use it often - I've used it several times already today.  I've also started using a few other applications here, like DeskLock and ReRun, and plan on trying several more.

So, I thought I'd let you now I've made another small donation to supplement the one I made when I started using FARR.  I'd make a larger one if I weren't so deeply in debt.

This site is a great concept and the Coding Snacks section provides a unique service.  Thanks again.

Post New Requests Here / Idea: Create shortcut location chooser
« on: January 08, 2009, 03:16 PM »
I think that it would be useful, when creating a shortcut via the context menu, to have a dialog like the "copy to folder" open in which one could choose where to put the shortcut.  Perhaps an additional context menu item named "Create Shortcut here" or somesuch would be a good way to do it...

LaunchBar Commander / Terribly slow and buggy
« on: January 08, 2009, 03:06 PM »
I love LaunchBar Commander - it's exactly what I was looking for - except it's running far too slowly.  I created folders with shortcuts to all my different types of software, and made a node on my only dock to each of those folders, and did likewise to all my most used data folders.  Then I minimized the dock to the tray, and created key commands to show the menus for all those nodes. Works perfectly for how I use my machine, except that sometimes it takes more than 20 seconds or more for the appropriate menus to open - far too long to be useful. 

How can I speed things up?  Some configuration notes - Dell Dimension 8100, XP Home SP3, P4 1.3 Ghz (old & slow, I realize), 768 Mb RAM.  Got my data (including almost all the folders to which my nodes connect) on a second drive.  Tried installing LBC to that drive and to my C drive - no appreciable difference in performance.

I'd be glad to provide other system data - HijackThis, running processes, etc. - if anyone can help.  Can't find a similar program I like half as much...
