Did you consider saving your notes as email drafts?

Another option would be to consider adopting Postbox free edition.
This program is based on Thunderbird and can take in many of the same addons.
Apparently it syncs with Omnifocus (tasks, notes with Apple stuff like iPod's etc.).

To be honest with you, i don't have Outlook, nor am i planning on forking out the bucks for it, nor for it's affiliated service in order to sync with my iPod Touch.

At least with Google i can configure my iPod to sync contacts and one main calendar... for free!

An odd extension indeed.

Clippings might be a better one:

It's installed but having problems finding icon to make it work.
Did a right click to customize but the icon is humongous!

Didn't do much for my three subscriptions.

Hopefully page2RSS will do better.

Did they ever tell you about the definition they give to mutineers?
Ya, they call them ship disturbers! Wink

Have to try that four letter word.   Grin

Thanks MerleOne for elucidating what i've been thinking too.

Guess the ol' principle "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" is more than applicable in this area.
158  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Dropbox and Evernote problem on: August 23, 2010, 07:58:29 PM
Confused...

It's been doing it again (shutting down instead of standby) and i can't blame SystemMechanic this time nor any other registry tweaker as i have done basically nothing in that area.   Sad

Could it be a kind of conflict with these programs running at the same time?

For the moment, i'm running Evernote and standby mode went well.

Now i'm hesitant to post anything more about this issue.

And yet, i can never recall having any issue with EN before. Sigh!
159  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Dropbox and Evernote problem on: August 23, 2010, 04:51:20 PM
Actually, it started over again after running SystemMechanic.

So, since then i've re-installed my notebook (with my regular AV equipped with its' own firewall) but no SystemMechanic.
It's been doing fine after a few reboots so, i'm pretty sure its' SM.
I'm never too keen on doing registry restoration so i think i'll just drop this "tweaker" altogether.

I spoke too fast. The problem has started over again.  Cry
161  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Dropbox and Evernote problem on: August 22, 2010, 11:19:07 AM
Thanks for insisting wraith808.

Well, i un-installed Evernote and with Dropbox running, i couldn't go into "standby mode" at all (something it did before).
So, i uninstalled Dropbox too and rebooted.

Installed Evernote once more, had it running with no problems going into or coming out of standby mode.
So, i then decided to try latest Dropbox "experimental" from Betanews and it seems to be doing fne so far.
In fact, with both running, no problems.
What gives?  huh
I can't figure this one out.
Besides, i have better things to do than to trouble the good folks here.
Guess i'll have to mozy on down to Dropbox and Evernote forums to let users who have similar issues know that it could be a conflict between these two programs or others too right? I also have Windows Essential Sync and other programs like FARR running.
162  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Dropbox and Evernote problem on: August 22, 2010, 09:23:16 AM
@parkint,

I beg your pardon, but when either program is closed (not running in background), i don't have the "standby mode" issue at all!  Sad
163  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Dropbox and Evernote problem on: August 22, 2010, 08:33:34 AM
Could a geek tell me why my computer "crashes" instead of going into "standby mode" whenever Dropbox or Evernote desktop apps are running?

When i click on standby, the computer shuts down (thus crashing) instead.

Does the fact that i use SystemMechanic have anything to do with this?
Perhaps it disables a Windows feature that should be running which would allow Evernote or Dropbox to run without issues.
But which feature is being disabled is beyond my understanding...

People have posted at Evernote's forum to no avail.

-Windows 7 basic edition.

Sajman,

You are probably 100% right about fidling around with the registry.
Problem is, if something you've modified goes unnoticed until you finally need it and don't remember when you modified it... how can you restore registry properly unless you're really sure you last "hacked" it? So much for backing up registry.
Never had problems with TuneUp Utilities either.

Why no AV?
Well, i find that my system was generally less responsive and scrolling through Windows Explorer or xplorer2 became definitely slower after installing it.
But just to prove me wrong!  Sad
I just did a fresh install of my OS and neither of these things happened.

Hi,

There are previous threads, but seeing that those who talk about registry cleaners date back a while, i thought i'd drop a line or two about one specific shareware that i've personally purchased and used; namely and mostly about SYSTEM MECHANIC 9 (NOT PRO).

First of all, it seems to fix and tweak all kinds of things but doesn't really improve speed anywhere (browser or OS).
Secondly, with regards to Malwarebytes which was suggested on previous post, I've run it a few times on newly installed OS and it always finds two .txt files to remove. My OS backup disk was made from freshly installed system so i can't see where the culprits came from.

Running on Windows 7 (not Pro) with no AV or Firewall except for Micro$oft defaults and system is running just smoothly for the last three weeks.

As usual, Microsoft is always light years away from innovations on the web...  

Indeed, it's not much of a big deal but it is a handy option for those who can afford their Office Suite.  

Did i miss the page numbering feature ?

PBwiki has survived over quite a span of changes.
As paid version i would say it is the best.

Free ? Well, there's always TiddlyWiki.
I like the fact you can save your data online / offline.

Ya. Someone recently told me about Wubi.

Guess you have to learn the hard way sometimes.  embarassed
169  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: How to uninstall Ubuntu 10.04 on Windows7 ? on: May 02, 2010, 11:33:33 AM
My LG notebook allows me to create a backup of the system.
I presume this means i can backup it up to a DVD.

Will this not backup the Ubuntu installed all over the partitions i've created or will it simply backup the default installation files needed for Windows 7 ?
170  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / How to uninstall Ubuntu 10.04 on Windows7 ? on: May 01, 2010, 05:37:42 PM
I'd really like to send my notebook back to initial state and start all over.
Problem is, i don't have a backed up copy of OS yet.
171  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Evernote alternative that has an online interface? on: April 13, 2010, 07:16:08 AM
Just came upon this small freeware: http://quotepad.info/

And! It doesn't need .Net Framework to work! Yes!   Thmbsup

Indeed, i was quite surprised myself.

An excellent job!
173  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Agent Ransack 2010 freeware lightweight - Desktop Search on: March 24, 2010, 04:28:28 AM
My pleasure mydexter!

What's nice about this program is the fact that you don't have to index your system and it does the job quite fast. Choosing specific folders to look into helps even more.
174  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Agent Ransack 2010 freeware lightweight - Desktop Search on: March 23, 2010, 03:57:58 PM
Although the latest Copernic Desktop freeware version has greatly improved, i really like this long awaited update to Agent Ransack by MythicSoft. It's just lightweight and beautiful!   Thmbsup
175  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Installing Linux over ME, is it possible? on: February 21, 2010, 09:23:48 AM
With DeepBurner i was able to make a good ISO copy of LinuxMint.
Although it failed to recognize my external monitor, it worked fine on my XP.
Much slower on ME (need a bit more RAM but do have minimum required) though.
I presume that a "hard" installation will make a big difference.

@Bamse,

Thanks for the reminder about CPU bit.
I usually try to remember to open and clean everything at least once a year.
