Coming back to this ten years later, and it is still not fixed.I wasn't clear... I meant The Bat!, not Thunderbird.
[...]I asked if they could make TB! start any editor of your choice, i.e., present the message you were working on as a file for your preferred text editor to work on. That's the way many systems worked back in the Fidonet DOS days.http://forums.mozill...a780573bee2#p2934663-rjbull (August 07, 2009, 10:57 AM)-David.P (June 28, 2018, 04:10 AM)
[...] author of several dark fantasy novels that comprise his Western Lights series, set in an alternate world in which the last Ice Age never ended. [...] where Victorian society exists alongside prehistoric beasts. The books are written in a style reminiscent of 19th century authors that has often been referred to Charles Dickens mixed with H. P. Lovecraft. His stories portray eccentric and (mostly) likable characters set within detailed locations that, on the surface, seem mundane and sometimes even cheery, but sinister plots and presences are slowly and carefully revealed.I've never read Lovecraft, but I see the Dickens. And these are most definitely dark fantasy - very, very dark, especially in the case of the bleak The House in the High Wood.
Wait, what was I using then? Illegal software?Not necessarily... I quoted Wikipedia, which is not definitive: and it's possible that your memory for fact is better than your memory for time. This used to happen to me at work a lot. Someone would ask, do you remember so-and-so, about six months ago? I'd check and find it was two years ago, or they might (less often) say two years whereas it was only six months. IOW, you might correctly remember that you used a free version, but maybe it wasn't in the 90s.-Tuxman (June 17, 2018, 05:20 PM)
In August 2012, ACD Systems released ACDSee Free, which retains all viewing features for the most common image formats (BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG, TGA, TIFF, WBMP, PCX, PIC, WMF, EMF); it lacks a thumbnail browser, and support for RAW and ICO formats. A reviewer at BetaNews found it "fast, configurable and easy to use". The version runs on Windows XP or newer. Product was discontinued in August 2013.
The Screaming Staircase
When the dead come back to haunt the living, Lockwood & Co. step in . . .
For more than fifty years, the country has been affected by a horrifying epidemic of ghosts. A number of Psychic Investigations Agencies have sprung up to destroy the dangerous apparitions.
Lucy Carlyle, a talented young agent, arrives in London hoping for a notable career. Instead she finds herself joining the smallest, most ramshackle agency in the city, run by the charismatic Anthony Lockwood. When one of their cases goes horribly wrong, Lockwood & Co. have one last chance of redemption. Unfortunately this involves spending the night in one of the most haunted houses in England, and trying to escape alive.
Set in a city stalked by spectres, The Screaming Staircase is the first in a chilling new series full of suspense, humour and truly terrifying ghosts. Your nights will never be the same again.

The last two have the same link. Was that intentional or was one missed?-wraith808 (May 02, 2018, 06:12 PM)
Thanks! Though I'd rather it were a one-step process, like (I think) it used to be.BTW, when replying using either Quick-Reply or Quote, neither appears to offer a means of attaching an image (or other file). I had to use Reply, which doesn't include quotes. Is that by design?You can use Quote first, then click Preview to further edit your reply and add attachments as desired.-rjbull (April 09, 2018, 03:15 PM)-Ath (April 09, 2018, 03:28 PM)
And thanks for the bit about treeline... I hadn't heard of that.I dabbled with a very old version, years ago, and suggested it here because it seems to have the fields that @c-sanchez wanted (see the screenshots). It's a strange beast, hard to uninstall without using something like Revo, but it's multi-platform and now apparently portable.-wraith808 (April 08, 2018, 03:57 PM)

For technology available in the UK, you could do worse than visit Expert Reviews - The latest technology reviewed by experts. This web site is owned by Dennis Publishing, who also own the UK magazines Computer Shopper, Computeractive, PC Pro, and Web User. The web site appears to offer all the reviews that were published in the paper magazines. You have to wade through lots of adverts, but there's no other cost.As for its screen, sound quality, signal, robustness? I think that would matter most for me.-kalos (March 28, 2018, 10:14 AM)
it's easy enough to find reviews of almost any phone on youtube or wherever-tomos (March 28, 2018, 12:30 PM)
I know, but it may be hard to distinguish the trusted ones from ads. But I will have a good read.-kalos (March 28, 2018, 12:48 PM)
