Thanks, that sounds interesting! I'll play around with the current one (see above) for one or two more weeks, then I'll give Poppy a try too.

Hi,

It's good that email notifiers are available in the market but is has to be more efficient and should cost less so that many can buy the software.

I can't help it, your reply sounds like coming from a spam-bot... (I was surprised not to find a link to online gambling / cheap drugs / a casino / etc.)  Cool

I settled on Scott's Gmail Alert (http://ga.graphicport.net/), which is donationware ($3 only). It got 4.5 (out of 5) stars (with 33 votes) over at http://fileforum.betanews...-Gmail-Alert/1248759828/1 (click for reviews).

It supports Gmail's labels, so I set it up to notify me of emails with my most important label. The idea from my previous post is not needed. Perfect!  Thmbsup

I just had an idea... since there seems to be no such program (I couldn't find one and you guys don't seem to know one), I might just create a forwarding filter (for my most important emails) and forward them to a new Gmail account. For that new account I'd then set up a notifier - http://www.gmailnotifier.com/ or one of the other 841 free ones. Cool
155  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / new email notifier that only reports specific emails with popup and sound? on: August 02, 2010, 07:27:05 AM
Hi,

over the years I tried quite a few email notifiers (and currently I don't use any because I get so many emails). Now I'm looking for one that only reports specific emails (for example if the sender's name matches a specific string - I like Gmail's filter rules!). Is there something like that out there, in a perfect world with support for sticky popup* and sound notifications?

Freeware/shareware if possible, if it's really good I'm willing to buy it too.

*Like in Google calendar after you activate the Gentle Reminders (Settings -> Labs). They pop up, but do NOT take focus (they don't interrupt your workflow, they pop up - gently - in the right buttom corner of your screen).

No need to be sorry, at least that service sends the news that were posted on the page I'm monitoring in the email, I like that.  smiley

Wow, that looks perfect! I'll try it.

Edit: Now I looked at http://www.feedmyinbox.com/pricing/ - and it looks like it's only one update per day (not as it happens) if you don't want to pay :-(

Page2RSS looks nice, and I like the Google Reader feature, but how do I most easily turn that into an email in my inbox (telling me about an update on that site)?  Cool
159  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: how to monitor a website for changes? (moving from WebMon to web-based service) on: July 13, 2010, 01:17:19 PM
Yeah, an RSS feed would be perfect for this task...

If possible, I want to move to a web-based service so that I don't have to run yet another program locally.
160  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / how to monitor a website for changes? (moving from WebMon to web-based service) on: July 13, 2010, 09:01:23 AM
Hi,

in the past I used WebMon (http://www.markwell.btinternet.co.uk/webmon/) to monitor some websites/pages for news and updates. Now I'm looking for a free service that does that (almost) in real time - once a day is not enough - and sends me an email if there's an update. I'm willing to accept ads in that email, and I only need one page to be monitored.

Is there any such service that doesn't just report once a day? Thanks in advance!
161  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: print to PDF stationery / merge files? on: July 13, 2010, 08:55:29 AM
Oops! Totally forgot to reply back then. embarassed

I tried some of the suggested solutions, but couldn't get it to work as I wanted - and after having spent some hours on that, I decided it's just not worth spending even more hours on it, so back to paper it is!
162  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / print to PDF stationery / merge files? on: May 30, 2010, 06:08:33 AM
Hi,

I (seemingly) found a solution to my question at http://answers.google.com...threadview/id/779573.html - but when I tried that, the result doesn't look so hot... the stationery (a PDF file that looks great by itself) I was using looked kinda crappy (fuzzy) in the resulting PDF when pdfedit995 (http://www.pdf995.com/pdfedit.html) printed the text on it (from Word). The text itself (in the resulting PDF) looks very clean... strange.

Any ideas?

No, it wasn't just hidden.
164  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Windows Vista: tool for hiding program icons from the task bar wanted on: March 31, 2010, 01:45:29 AM
Thanks Curt, the Process Manager makes a good first impression!  thumbs up
The second impression is less good... after running for several hours it just vanished from the tray (Windows didn't show an error message), and I find its icon color (in the tray) to be too bright.

166  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Windows Vista: tool for hiding program icons from the task bar wanted on: March 30, 2010, 03:02:09 AM
Hi,

I want to have some programs run 24/7, but need to use their taskbar icon only very rarely. So I want to hide it to save some screen space. I once tried a few tools to do the job, but none worked REALLY well. Some just didn't work on Vista, others would do the job now, but wouldn't do it correctly after a reboot.

What tools can you recommend? Freeware/donationware/postcardware/etc. if possible.

Maybe (just maybe) I should have scrolled down that list of recommended videos...  Grin Thanks!
168  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / selective attention test videos (students passing a ball, etc.) on: March 24, 2010, 12:47:09 PM
Hi,

you might know the famous video @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJG698U2Mvo (students passing a ball; if not, watch it!), I'm searching for the video where some fictional crime scene in a living room is shown, and things change while the camera shows other areas of the room - and you don't notice it (or only a few things).

I loved it (I think it was actually a commercial from the UK, about noticing kids or people on bikes in traffic... has been a while), but can't find it anymore... who could point me to it?

(PS: It wasn't as bloody as the ones like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a44AnA6_-2o)
169  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / designer for business cards needed, LIMITED TIME on: March 14, 2010, 07:36:48 AM
Hi,

I just found out there's an important event on Thursday, and I need new business cards for that. Since the online 'ready-made' design offers that I found won't ship in time, I have the choice between asking the local printer to print some boring one (basically only text, no real design) and looking for someone to design one for me (nothing *too* fancy needed, but my designer 'skills' are limited to putting clipart in Word documents).

I'm willing to pay, but I can't pay a lot (if I could I'd just call a local designer I worked with in the past). Any takers? The job needs to be completed within the next 24 to 48 hours (I'll only find out when exactly after I can reach printers tomorrow), we would handle the details by email and Skype.

Thanks in advance for any input.
170  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Google Chrome + download manager? on: March 13, 2010, 05:48:49 AM
Hi,

(what feels like) ages ago I used Firefox with an extension (if I recall correctly) and the download manager FlashGet. On a webpage, you could do things like press some hotkey or click something (not sure, it's been a while...) and then it would automatically grab all the linked files of a specific extension from that page.

Is there some solution like that for Google Chrome too?

173  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: Call Graph: The free Skype call recorder! on: March 11, 2010, 04:39:17 AM
I couldn't install this here (on Vista), the installer tried to download additional software and failed with that - and aborted without an error message.

I'm now using the (free) MP3 Skype Recorder (v.1.9.0), see http://www.donationcoder....rum/index.php?topic=17171
174  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: Skype Call Recorder on: March 11, 2010, 04:36:28 AM
I like it!  Thmbsup

Only used it (MP3 Skype Recorder v.1.9.0) for a few test calls on Skype, but it worked nicely. Hint: leave the "recording mode" setting to "Mono".

The only other free alternative I could find - Call Graph, see http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=12967.0 - wouldn't install properly here.

Someone else was a few minutes quicker than you (and decided not to post here). I might ask you in the future, should I ever need another URL.  smiley
