OpenOffice3 is supposed to come out very soon.
Apparently they're working hard at incorporating an email client into it.
Anyway, Kingston Office9 seems to be shareware... and OO will always keep getting better for the same price (free!) with no registration required.

Although quite new on the scene, Chandler might be your best bet as a free alternative to your Outlook needs.

Yabutt!

Not that i want to sound like an ESET fanatic or somethin, but if my memory serves me well (i'm not the one who signs the contracts) it has support for most (if not all) systems.

Darwin,

I guess there's no way to always keep our old computers (notebooks) at par with all the enhancements that are brought upon with the ever evolving technologies that most often require quite a bit more "juice".  ohmy

Anyway, if it's any indication of the way other programs behave, AVG8 Network Edition would take about an hour (if not more) to do a full scan of my notebook (4 years old).

My pleasure Darwin!

Let us know how it works out for you ay!

Eset in Canada apparently grant a discount to non-profits.
With AVG8 taking the bloatware street our group plans on going with Eset as soon as our present contract is over.

I've been testing it for three weeks now and it is just fine. Low on resources and quite fast to update and scan. Very non-intrusive. Can't wait for the changeover!

Confronted to FF3, it simply pales out.

No extensions (can't live without Adblock and Firegestures!).
Poor bookmarking options (no keywords).

Not for me.

307  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Foxmarks has a new forum! (so does Evernote) on: August 13, 2008, 07:38:22 AM

I noticed that Evernote has one over there as well.
Very well done! I must say!!   Thmbsup

Yes, have heard of SpywareTerminator but have not read many favorable comments with regards to ClamAV.

AVG is cutting out of Win98

After a second look at NOD32, i did notice that the Business Edition supports Win98.
Hope they continue to do so. Not everyone needs or feels the need to upgrade their PC's.
310  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: PC Tools Free Offers. Get them now!!! on: August 07, 2008, 07:04:51 PM
Boring post but i have to ask, are there any AV programs that still work with Win98?

I'd like to jump to NOD32 but it doesn't work on that platform.

Yabut!

FF3 has a little star at the right end to indicate if it's in your folder and you can modify the bookmark directly via that star.

Also, FF3 has an icon at the left side that offers you website info (if made available).

Opera doesn't do this (yet!).

 
312  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Can you live with *just* opera? on: July 29, 2008, 07:00:45 AM
With all due respect for Opera fans, the new FF3 ahsomethingamigger brings bookmarking to a whole new age.
I have around 1,000 bookmarks and i find this new url box enhancement along with Foxmarks backup service to be an excellent solution to an essential part of surfing.

Another complimentary service is the ever improving Evernote for note taking. Fans must like the fact that they can save a whole webpage in FF with just one click.
313  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Can you live with *just* opera? on: July 26, 2008, 11:50:28 AM
I like Opera too but can't make it default for the same reasons as you.

Also, the new "awesome bar" (ugh!) in FF3 makes the url box much more complete than Opera's.
That is a pretty good reason in itself!

Cool!  I like dat!

Security issues aside, you could also purchase an external drive enclosure and install you old drive in it. Then you'd have a nice backup drive to use. I'd tell them "nice try guys" and ask for your old drive back. Wink


Now that's an interesting one! I say!
Thanks a bunch 40hz!   smiley
316  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Let go of your bookmarks! on: July 14, 2008, 05:37:52 PM
PlainOldFavorites has the same exact design as in IE.  I don't know about keyboard shortcuts as I have never used such functionality.  Sorry.

Jojo,

I believe IE7PRO and Maxthon (freeware) have this kind of option.
You simply assign a shortcut to your link and type it in the url address box.
Say you bookmarked www.google.com
You can assign any letter in the keyword section of your Firefox bookmarked page so, say you assign the letter "g" then all you have to do is type "g" in your url box, hit enter and you're taken over to www.google.com Neat hé? It can be really handy for extra long url addresses.  
317  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Security issue with old hard disk on: July 13, 2008, 03:36:55 PM
Thanks guys, your input is much appreciated!

Indeed, i was thinking about that. What if my new drive goes caput? At least i would have an old one to work with.
Will try to get the old one back.
318  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Security issue with old hard disk on: July 13, 2008, 07:18:44 AM
Hi,

Excuse me but I didn't quite know how to formulate the title.

They've recently setup a new hard disk in my notebook (gone from 40G to 80G) and i had just installed XPHome (with no data) on the ol' 40. After they finished the work, they failed to give me back my disk and i forgot to ask them for it.
I'm out of town and was wondering if it was worth asking it back?
I now realize that they also made a few bucks on it (by keeping it) but i can live with that.
319  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Let go of your bookmarks! on: July 13, 2008, 04:38:55 AM
jojo,

I liked your comments about link checking.
Does IE favs contain keyword shortcuts? That's what i like about FF! You can add always add a keyword say "dcf" for the forum here and when using OpenBook extension you get that perfect partner to manage your bookmarks with ease.
Foxmarks is great to sync your bookmarks online and they have an alpha testing program now to sync with IE and I'm sure it will be out of alpha stage soon.

Dats my 2 cents for today!   tongue

dan: had you previously saved the password?

Good point!
It's a problem when you dab with more than one browser.
I did however have a problem with my.opera.com not keeping my p.w. in the last builds.
Had to login every time. Seems to be okay now.

Did a quick restart just to make sure Opera kept my DCF p.w. & login and it's okay too.

Now if Opera can only fix the panel icons position.
It's a bug that has been reported three builds ago.
321  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Opera 9.5 on: June 27, 2008, 05:26:18 PM
I just installed it over previous build.
Can login no problem but isn't the wand supposed to remember the p.w. for me?
322  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Opera 9.5 on: June 14, 2008, 12:35:52 PM
K-Meleon is good if you still have to run Win98.
Firefox3 no longer supports it.  thumb down

On my XP Home SP2, Opera 9.5 has shown to be quicker than Firefox3 at startup and page rendering.
323  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Opera 9.5 on: June 13, 2008, 05:30:54 PM
Lashiec is sheek!

Do you have a weblog with software reviews?
Opera sure is fast! In between Firefox3RC3 i'm having a tough time seeing which one is faster.
Is it possible to tweak a notebook hooked up to a network which has a determined speed?
Anyway, Opera feels like it has the edge with regards to speed on the web (for now).
The search capabilities in both browsers is just marvellous!
324  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Opera 9.5 on: June 13, 2008, 07:08:48 AM
I agree with felixproductions, sync tool needs some improvement.
It's been a few times now that i've re-installed Opera browser and every time i get a bunch of duplicates that should not be there as i had deleted them.

The notes sync seems to be holding good though.

9.5's new theme is too dark.
They should have left the default theme in, at least as an option.

The revamped panel has problems of its' own that are still yet to be resolved.
Two "x" to close it and only one works.
The panel icons are no longer in "justified" position so they look bulky and ackward (especially the new theme!).   ohmy
