del.icio.us - thanks for the correction Allen!

I had high hopes with Spurl but i guess they had issues with spammers and hackers?

Diigo is handy and after so many years,
an ol' timer like myself needs to be more than convinced in order to change games.

Newcomers will likely be the main ones to find their way to Pinboard rather than people who have been used other bookmarking services for years. There may be a new wave of Delicious users since it has been recently (finally!) sold by Yahoo.

p.s. was this there yesterday? Pinboard is charging $9.33 for new accounts?

Hadn't heard of Pinboard before either.
Where was it hidding?

When Diigo came out, it had to contend with established biggies like Delicious.us and Furl.
Since then Furl is no more and Delicious, well...
Diigo has come a long way and seems to be pretty well no.1

Spurl (r.i.p.) looked quite promising at the time.
Will this Pinboard be a serious contender?
Time will tell, but it's simplicity and speed may find a big fan club.

FYI, Linked Notes (previously mentioned here) has been recently upgraded.

Very small program and there's a portable version too!  Thmbsup

Freeware version and shareware.

JavaJones,

What about the latest emails that were perhaps permanently lost by GMail?  ohmy
I've been backing up mine to another email account since the beginning but it's not the same thing as having them in my regular GMail account.
With Thunderbird (never liked the Bat, especially for lack of support) i suppose you can bring them all back (if your backup account allows free access, in my case Yahoo). Thus, it is still a handy option to upkeep.

@40hz, i'm still very much a newbiewubi and from what i've been seeing over the past few days, there are many good points in WUBI but also plenty of shortcomings that make it difficult to fully accept (yet!).

FARR is a hard app to replace.  Thmbsup
159  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What is next best thing to FARR for Linux? on: December 24, 2010, 08:00:01 PM
Thanks Mouser, will look into it.

Newbie with WUBI.

I know it's not possible but there must be something close to FARR for Linux.

Christmas wishes to all!
Happy Holidays to those who don't.
161  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Copernic Desktop Pro on special on: November 27, 2010, 12:17:03 PM
It looks like a decent program indeed!

I forgot to mention that i still use FARR on a regular basis.
Probably more so than the others i mentioned. Excellent price tag on that one too!   Thmbsup
Unfortunately, i could never get that WindowsSearch plugin to work with it.
162  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Copernic Desktop Pro on special on: November 27, 2010, 04:51:56 AM
That's better. Thanks Curt!

Anyway, after giving it a test drive, i'm still more content with Windows 7 + Filelocator Lite.

Could be more useful for XP users?
163  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Copernic Desktop Pro on special on: November 26, 2010, 12:14:42 PM
$24.95 is not bad for what some consider to be a pretty good search engine for your desktop.

Not on for long.
164  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: ResophNotes programmer needs a bit of help on: October 13, 2010, 07:06:31 PM
For the record, i noticed that ResophNotes' "terms of use" page has changed (for the better of course!).

Three cheers to SKA for lending a hand!!!
165  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: ResophNotes programmer needs a bit of help on: October 13, 2010, 04:30:27 AM
My pleasure SKA!

Thank you too to to to to Curt for pointing out the exact link for the "terms of service".

I felt that there wasn't a better place to post this help message since this programmer is offering "donation ware".
166  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / ResophNotes programmer needs a bit of help on: October 12, 2010, 01:45:26 PM
After posting a suggestion on this thread:
http://www.donationcoder....p?topic=24171.0;topicseen

This comment came shortly afterward:
"Resophnotes terms of use look very peculiar
http://www.resoph.com/Res...phNotes/Terms_of_Use.html
SKA"

So, i wrote to the author to convey this observation, here was his reply:
First of all, thanks for submitting ResophNotes to a forum.

"I am just an individual programmer and I like to share the app that might be useful to other people (I created it as a personal app so I can use it myself).  I might read too many modern day lawyer stories so I decided to add that "Terms of Use" to protect myself (I hope it can).  I copied and modified it from other applications (including other Simplenote clients) so I thought none of the terms are really special.  I am sorry if people got scared by them.

My bottom line: I am a very simple programmer and this is a freeware.  I just hope people like it and share their experience and suggestions with me.  I won't take those terms serious unless someone try to hold the software against me.  Check the change log, I've been trying very hard to fix bugs and add features (95% comes from users all over the world).  In the mean time, if you or other people on the forum like to make any suggestion on the terms, please don't hesitate to send any comment to me.  I can modify the terms as long as I still feel "protected".

Thanks a lot for your email,
C.Y."

So, if some of you geeks can lend a helping hand to this guy in making a better "terms of service" for product, i think he would gladly appreciate your feedback!  Thmbsup

I'm not quite familiar with Outlook but i hope this can help.

Resophnotes a Windows note taking app. It's small but not small enough to be in DCF but says it can import Outlook .csv
It syncs to a service called Simplenoteapp.com which will sync to your Apple gizmo.
http://www.resoph.com/ResophNotes/Welcome.html

The author just recently updated it so i guess it will in for the ride for a while.

168  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Thunderbird as a PIM Hub - questions on: October 10, 2010, 04:18:49 PM
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.).

169  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Thunderbird as a PIM Hub - questions on: October 10, 2010, 11:57:49 AM
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!

Hopefully page2RSS will do better.

Ya, they call them ship disturbers! Wink

Have to try that four letter word.   Grin
174  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: System Mechanic (and registry fixers) on: September 09, 2010, 07:04:04 AM
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.
175  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!
