1  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Whats your preferred web browser? on: March 26, 2012, 07:16:02 AM
Like many I was a long time FF user due to it's extensions - many but particularly Tab mix Plus and Download Them All (and Adblock but most have that now)
FF has slowed whilst Chrome is fast and I am a heavy Google user anyway so ...
Have consider Chromium and SRW Iron but not that concerned about privacy as I am Google's b1tch already smiley

My major gripe with Chrome is the stealing of focus
With FF (and Tab Mix plus) I could use Tweetdeck or an email program and click web links which would load in tabs in the browser in the background without stealing focus from the current app
Would love to have that capability from Chrome but not possible
Does Opera do this? If so I might give it a try
2  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Which Social Media Program do you use? (e.g. Tweetdeck) on: March 26, 2012, 07:03:00 AM
I am still using the original Air based TweetDeck. I tried a BUNCH of other clients - Sobees and Seesmic came close to doing the job - but none of them did as good a job as Air TweetDeck.  I can't seem to find the Air installation program for the last Air release of TweetDeck,

Exactly the same boat my friend. Tried Sobees and Seesmic etc. Interface is not superior in anyway. no web interface comes close. Can't believe there isn't a better option available. Was hoping someone knew one.
I can help you with the Air Tweetdeck though
The last version was 0.38.2
here's one link but google has a few
http://www.oldapps.com/tw...ck.php?old_tweetdeck=7149

I understand that if you don't use Facebook AND Twitter then some of these elements may not be an issue for you
There would seem to be some nifty Twitter only clients
Much fewer FB clients that achieve these results e.g. TD allows me to see status updates and photo updates in a column but without all the dross that infects timelines like game scores and random likes etc.
It is like FB distilled down to a Twitter like form of just genuine user messages via status updates
If you don't use FB or you like to play Farmville (etc) then this won't matter to you I guess

Anyway always keen to try new programs so if anyone finds something give me a shout smiley
3  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Which Social Media Program do you use? (e.g. Tweetdeck) on: March 20, 2012, 10:38:45 PM
I have tried lots of programs that 'aggregate' my social media status etc
Specifically I use multiple twitter accounts and Facebook
Was a fan of Tweetdeck and still use the last Air version before they were acquired by Twitter
The new Twitter version is the same as their web app and isn't as good
One specific functionality I like is to be able to order the status by time so I can see the oldest to newest and then mark them read as I go
Don't want to miss anything you know!
No other desktop or web app has this functionality afaik
So I am curious what the knowledgeable users here utilise
And maybe plant a seed for someone to pick up the design ideas from (original) Tweetdeck and build a new program that improves on it rather than waters it down
From my web research I can see lots of people like me who are searching and might pay for a new program (hint hint)
Cheers from downunder

I am sure Thunderbird can do what you want with treeview etc as it is highly customisable natively and with plugins
Personally I went away from desktop email to gmail exclusively
I would set up gmail to retrieve your ymail and deal with all from there
If you use something like Boomerang for Gmail (free for limited use) you can mark email to 'boomerang' to you in a certain timeframe if you don't get a reply

Hi there,

It looks like a nice program, but it crashes as soon as I try to start it.

During the first setup, it installed directx9 and XNA.
During the second setup, it says that directX9 en XNA are present.

It's probably something windows. Maybe I should reboot first, so that windows loads XNA correctly.

Do you have any idea?

Exactly the same for me I am afraid - not operational at all On Win 7 Home Premium 64
Tried running in XP compatability and run as admin - no go
All the extra look good but need basic functionality first I guess
Good luck with development

I have been looking for a decent program to convert a number of video files into a 'standard' DVD
I have a number of cartoons in avi files I would like to burn to seasonal DVD for my kids and nephews
I will be giving DeVeDe and DVD Styler a try
Thanks smiley

I agree with Carol and wraith
I could not wait to read my Langalist newsletter each time and always paid my subscription without a 2nd thought
My paid subscription to Windows Secrets would be lapsed if I didn't have the choice to nominate my own figure
I pay $2 per year and frankly given the quality of stuff available for free on the net I think that is fair
