This is interesting. I heard about a search site on NPR that features results from Bing and Google, side-by-side. Check out http://www.bing-vs-google.com/

Eudora was always pretty good.

Not perfect, but the new beta is still pretty good.  Cool

Very minor stuff still needs attention though: the Eudora beta forgets that it's supposed to always start in the inbox (e.g., if you close after perusing a different email folder once, Eudora beta remembers to start in that folder for the next few startups). No show stoppers though.

Any reasons to switch yet ?  I definitely do not want to lose the robust
filtering and any searching capabilities, or any stability.

I think I would delay any switch yet. I've encountered some minor stability issues on two machines that took some time to surface (as might be expected with a beta version). I started testing Sylpheed's beta for comparison and it is superior IMHO. (Sylpheed takes a little getting used to though.)

Yesterday iPrint v6 was released free for business and/or personal use at http://www.clicktoconvert.com/iPrint/

I've been using it for several months and it's rock solid on WinXP. A really decent way to save on printing costs. Thmbsup

Thanks for the heads up about PrintWhatYouLike. I will check it out.

I really like this kind of software (saves me considerable on toner). aardvark works great in Firefox, but its bookmarklet is problematic in Opera. Fortunately, Printliminator works OK in Opera.

I mostly use aardvark (that I found through a recommendation in this forum) before printing. Now there's a new one at http://css-tricks.com/examples/ThePrintliminator/  Cool

"Eudora 8" is based on Thunderbird v3 (not TB v2) + Penelope.

Now I'm scratching my head about the incompatible Adblock extension. Since I use ad muncher on my main machine it is not an immediate problem. Possibly this is just an issue with the beta version.

The name Eudora 8 is a mistake - it's actually Thunderbird v2(I doubt its v3)  + Penelope extension to make it resemble Eudora v7.

Well, I guess that explains why Eudora chokes on recent Thunderbird extensions (e.g., AdblockPlus).

Anyway, thanks for the heads up about MailForge.

Back in the day Eudora was indeed payware. $40 if I remember correctly.

$40! How times change. Eudora's new beta sports some interface tweaks that I like--such as no solo tabs--but no sea change from Thunderbird 3.
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Eudora 8.0b7 on: December 16, 2009, 06:14:30 PM
Back in the day, I think Eudora was payware so I used Outlook Express. Now Eudora is open source.  Thmbsup

The Bat! was also high on my list of apps to try.  (I may still take it for a spin.)

I wonder if it actually makes sense to further develop this one.

Not sure. For me, Eudora's GUI makes enough of a difference to keep it on my machines. There's a recent review at http://www.winplanet.com/file/11425.htm and a feature list at http://www.softpedia.com/...mail-Clients/Eudora.shtml
15  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Eudora 8.0b7 on: December 16, 2009, 01:34:06 PM
I didn't especially care for the new Thunderbird interface in WinXP (I use claws in linux) so I downloaded Eudora 8.0b7 at http://www.eudora.com/betas/

This Eudora beta is built on Thunderbird anyway, but I *really* like it. Kiss  No stability issues here and very easy to configure.

I can't believe there isn't an Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala thread yet.

I've been experimenting with the minimal install suggested at http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/minimal for karmic and my pc really flies (Dell Dimension 3000; 3 GHz; 1 GB RAM).  Thmbsup

Frankly, I triple boot this machine (WinXP, CrunchBang & Ubuntu 9.10). For ordinary surfing--read: security--you can't beat linux; OTOH, some online video really works better from a WinXP platform (e.g., divx). Moreover, certain applications like BitWare, Spider, etc., keep me booting up WinXP everyday as well.

"Beginning the Linux Command Line" by Sander van Vugt http://www.amazon.com/Beg...qid=1255751554&sr=8-1

Scott Granneman's "Linux Phrasebook" wet my appetite, and Sander's book gets under the hood without being overwhelming.
19  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Will Win7 last as long as XP? on: September 13, 2009, 08:10:57 AM
(a) No. I like linux, but applications like BitWare have nothing comparable in linux so I run two WinXP boxes as well.
(b) Win7 looks pretty good. I expect MS will keep it around for awhile.
(c) definitely only when I need another machine

BitsduJour is offering the fantastic clipboard manager ClipMate for $19.95 today.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm still using ClipMate v4.5 on my WinXP box.  Thmbsup

It may be time for an upgrade.
21  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Google Chrome: Time for a Second Chance? on: July 18, 2009, 08:01:21 PM
Chrome is my default browser for WinXP (even though I mostly use Firefox 3.5.1 with Sandboxie & noscript for casual surfing). Nothing beats Chrome in my experience for speed when I access my email newsletter/webzine links from Google via Thunderbird.

Since Summer arrives next week in the USA I figured it'd be OK to revive an old thread and post a great link. Check out http://www.builditsolar.c...an/BasementAirCooling.htm

Fran's method won't work for everybody, but it sure works here. I built a prototype for a few bucks about three weeks ago.  Grin

I'll check on 9.04 again after it goes final.

Jaunty installed fine on my IBM Intellistation Z Pro.  Thmbsup

This is an amazing release.

Anyone have any insight, experiences or suggestions?

I upgraded my Dell Dimension 3000 from intrepid to jaunty this week. Everything was cool until I went to the Archeology Channel. The upgrade borked my multimedia big-time. Flash was easy enough to fix; I installed RealPlayer and that took care of anything with real or wmv format; mpg format (among others), however, was a no-go. Consulted the forums--nothing.

OTOH, the experience was not altogether negative: I wiped the drive and installed CrunchBang. Totally works.  Thmbsup

(I'll check on 9.04 again after it goes final.)
