I did some web page design for my business clients in the 1990's.

I used hostica.com ... and still have a small account with them.

They were cheap and had all that I wanted/needed.

At that time I subscribed to a plan where you could host "unlimited" websites.

I used to set up the "draft" website to show the client... and then pass it on to them to host "wherever".

This was just a little diversion for me....... there was little money to be made from it.

I imagine that has not changed much.

This discussion remainds me of trying to do the same to lotus files years ago (late 1980's).

There were a few shareware ad freeware programs that could do a reasonable job....  but when I found a program called "sqz!" I was able to get 95% reductions in file size!

.... which helped me immensely when emailing squeezed files using a dial up connection.

Not at the moment but that bit of the message should be marked as the 'signature' (the double dash) so your SMS tool might have a setting to ignore that. Hth

Thanks so much.

A little more "digging" and I found another program called smtpmailsender - I find it does that sms duty for me really well.

Thanks again and good luck.

Harry.

Hi Harry thanks for using noteme.

The first line you type is the subject!

Thanks.

Worked that out by experimenting!

I was also going to try to use it to send sms - via an email-to-sms service that my ISP provides.

The only problem I now have is that the program adds a comment and date after the email message.  Is that removable in any way?

Harry.

Anyone able to help out with suggestions for good hosters and such?

I have used hostica.com for over 15 years most of what you describe.

Version 1.1.0 out ....This version should resolve any hacking/security/privacy issues mentioned in the topic.

Downloaded and install oK on Dell Inspiron running Win 7 /64.

Is there any way it would be possible to set a "Subject" in the email?

Even if it was a default subject we could access in the ini file?

Regards,

Harry.

I saw it too.

It downloaded and installed on my XP without any problems.

Initial pdf's look great!

I loaded the zoiper softphone the other day and found that it can send and receive faxes via voip (sip and AIX).

It uses the t38 protocol.

Harry.


10  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Software for use with scanner? on: June 04, 2008, 01:49:01 AM
I recently had problems with HP's Solution Center when instaling another HP all-in-one.

The scanner worked ok but HP's program would not work with it - registry mismatch.

I tried a number of other programs - most were so called photo copier programs.  But they allowed you to select the scanner and the printer.  Which meant I could scan a document and file it as a pdf (which is what I wanted).

I used:

icarbon
photocopier
copying machine (ex meusoft)

Files were downloaded from Snapfiles Pro as free software.

Regards,

Harry.

In Australia, fax-to-email and email-to-fax services are provided by VSPs (voip), ISPs (broadband) and specialist providers.

When using my VSP, my fax sending cost is usually 10 cents per call. Receiving faxes is free, but you pay for a DID.

When using my ISP, my fax sending cost is 3 cents per fax (to 10 pages).  Receiving faxes is free, but you pay for a DID.

When using my specialist provider (utbox.net), my fax sending cost 15 cents per page and my fax receiving cost is 5 cents per page. (The DID is covered by a minimum annual usage charge).

All services send locally (Australia) and internationally.

All costs are in Australian dollars.

These fax services have evolved quickly over the last 3 years (use of asterisk?).

Prior to that, I was paying a specialist provider over $25 per month before their usage charges!

As my usage has dwindled in recent years (I am now semi-retired), I now only use my ISP's fax service.

As an aside, all of the above also provide SMS services using both web and desktop applications.

Regards,

Harry.

Years ago I moved into a house in Brisbane, Australia which had a large (12 ft high) retaining wall built of railway sleepers.

A vine started to grow on the wall, and after a while these large tubors appeared..... some hanging on the vine, others part submerged in the siol of the embankment.  They were 3-4 inches diameter and about 12 inches long. 

Not knowing what they were, I cut them off and disposed them (before the kids got "poisoned"???).

A year or so later, my wife remarked that they looked something like a sweet potato.  So we cooked one up ......

And it was really tasty....  (i.e. we survived the taste test!)

The vine kept us in sweet potato for some years......

Harry.

PS In Oz we use them like a potato (substitute), as a vegetable in roast meals, etc.

My wife says they are good for me...........  (makes you wonder though.....)

My "normal" dinner is steak, sweet potato and broccoli.

So I suppose I must like sweet potato. (or I would have asked my "complementary one" to change the meal.)

Sweet potatoes have just about replaced the "normal" potato in my family's diet. (except when we have potato and leak soup - which id tomorrow night's dinner - I have now been informed.

... and I prefer their taste, too!

Harry.

PS Ugly looking things "in the raw" though ......  still, so am I!!!!

Sorry, I did not notice it mentioned earlier - I read thru most of he posts - but here were many alright!

I currently have Info Select 7 (they are now up to version Cool.

It is "visual" now  - although hot keys are still there.

Adding a note or a topic and searching is really fast. 

It also allows syncwith other computers - but I have not used it that way.

I was thinking about how long I have had it - and realise I must have purchased my first copy (vers 4) sometime about 1989.

Like all programs - I don't use a fraction of whats there - just what suits me.

While the whole idea about it is it's freeform nature - it falls short of Surfalator's ability to have more than one "file" open at one time.

Regards,

Harry.

True, the price nowadays is steep for Info Select....

But I thought it might give some more "ideas" to the forum.

In the meantime, I have downloaded surfalator and am on a steep learning curve..

So far I like it a lot!

Harry.

I have been using Info Select for my note taking for the last 8 years or so.

http://www.miclog.com/is/index.shtml

It is a free form data base type program (with extras).

One of the features I like is the "transporter" which allows you highlight text in any program and transport it into info select.

I also like its ability o search for words within its database.

It has the ability for databases, spreadsheets, tables, calendars and even email (which I don't like).

I don't think it does all the things you have been discussing above, but it suits my needs.

Maybe another contender??

Harry.

PS My first post - be gentle!
