What attracted me was its open format.

any chance you could tell us a bit more there smiley
Is it a chuck everything in there and search programme  cheesy
It's hard to get a decent idea of it from it's home page and I hate having to look at videos (will do at some stage if there's no other choice but now not a great time)
ah they do have a list of features page (hidden in a drop-down list undecided) but that's not very helpful either.
https://www.asksam.com/br...k&b=askSam%20Features...

It would be great if you could give us even a vague idea of how it can be used

5227  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: 1 free PageFour license (and one only) on: March 17, 2009, 08:46:08 AM
Can PageFour be used portably?

I dont know
There's no mention of the possibility on install or in the help file - there's no search on the website so I guess that leaves contacting the author unless someone else here knows

is everyone a member of facebook tellme

it bugs me when I get mails from facebook telling me my friend John or Jimmy would like me to look at his facebook profile - when I follow the link I'm told I have to join up to see it -  huh

I find it pretty offensive (of facebook) and a bit ironic if the people dont seem to be able to manage to even send me an email themselves (mind maybe they dont even know facebook is sending these mails undecided)

It turns out the real reason was that she had been staying with a family with three children all of whom had been extolling the huge advantages of their very pretty MacBooks.

what Apple really know how to do is to make full use of the craving factor

You could have a look at the List of Disc Catalogers thread - but that has a list of about 200 programmes that can do what you ask LOL

But I'm sure someone will recommend one for you!

the related article is one wierd article - they're trying to be funny and report seriously at the same time: BIG FAIL

I enjoyed their "Article of the Now — Ireland" celebrating Paddy's day on the home page

Would you care to do a review about PageFour for us? Kiss

I'm always looking for new writing/idea tools. (It's a hobby of mine.) Grin
40hz
you can download a time-UN-limited trial (there's a limitation on the number of "Notebooks" (three I think) and pages in each (30))
That's enough though to give you a good sense of the programme I reckon. There's a quite positive review of it by Tom Colvin here (and he's a real writer, not like us tongue)


The tabs are nice to have, there's lots of keyboard shortcuts (unfortunately not customisable - Ctrl+Z on a german keyboard is not easy Sad). There some nice options for spelling/correction.

I already have a list of requests/suggestions to the developers, most interface related - I'll wait till I've used it a bit (more) before sending on.

There's the equivalent of an outline on the left - well, it works like a folder tree with "pages" instead of files. You have to double click a page to display it (ouch), although I guess it's mimicking explorer there which is logical e.g. if you want to move a page to a different location you dont want it to open on first click: but, a bit of a pain as Curt says.

Importing:
to import word document you need Word 2000 or newer (ouch agin). I use Softmaker Office 2008 ...
You can import individual files or you can select a folder and filetype (doc if you have word, rtf and txt) and it will import all files of selected types.

Exporting:
only in "Notebook" format (havent looked at that yet). For something that's aiming at writers, I really dont understand this - surely they will want to pass on their work (+ formatting even) to someone else? Review linked above says:
PageFour maintains its files in Rich Text Format, or RTF, the format which I think should be preferred by writers - so maybe there is some way to export or convert but it's not explained in the help file ...Hah, they are RTF files - now why didnt they say that in the first place huh Wink


Personally, what I'm looking for is somewhere that I can organise my growing collection of notes/ideas about various topics (which often overlap) and where I can then actually produce something from them - I'm still not sure what exactly and maybe that's part of my problem - I'm not sure if PageFour is the programme for this but I'm gonna try it.

For info about PageFour and some other writer's software see the SOFTWARE page on Tom Colvin's blog (Becoming A Writer Seriously)

Who made the drawings for the banner?

Nick Pearson (Nudone) is the brilliant artist who created Cody our mascot, and made so many amazing illustrations of him.  Nick also runs several other beautiful sites, most notably www.CodexTransportica.com.

also very notably Head in the Clouds Comic Strip although, cause he's somewhere else [see above] he hasnt been drawing the most recent strips

I have WinCatalog 2008 from a previous bits offer (which I've never installed embarassed)
they dont have any upgrade info at their site huh so I mailed them

I got a very prompt, polite, and helpful mail from them telling me that there's no upgrade price

As in, the upgrade from 2008 to 2009 is free OR you have to pay full price? I'm guessing the former, but thought I'd ask to be sure  smiley

oups  tellme  FREE  cheesy

IDEA for new playback setting

Shuffle (or Random) with manual override :-)
it would work as shuffle except when I select a different file - then it would play that selected file next. Then it would continue in Shuffle or whatever mode.

I find I'm listening in Random mode and, on hearing a particular song, I think - oh, I'd like to hear XYZ by the person or whatever. I'd select that one, go back to whatever I'm doing and my selection would play next...

Never seen it anywhere else (but only familiar with two players :p) so just throwing it out there ... or here smiley

I also have one that's command line oriented.  Not very imaginatively named
Run And Place utilities. It's available for download from this page:

http://www.favessoft.com/downloads.html

Avira AntiVir (Premium) tags this as some AutoIT trojan (and doesnt let you copy the name, how silly)
I guess it's the same problem as with AHK programmes - just thought I'd let you know
5246  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: Surfulater 50% discount @ www.bitsdujour.com on Mar 4 on: March 12, 2009, 06:00:58 AM
Is it possible to share Surfulater repo across computers? Is the database structure suitable for synching(via another software) ?

1) dont know
2) I've used SFFS to synch file using partial file updating (whatsit called - delta backup?) and worked from/opened that bakup on occasion.

Hi folks, if you like portable software, swing by our site at www.zenosys.com and have a look. We've got some freeware there too as well. All of our software offerings share a common goal and rationale in that its low cal, no fuss, and ready to go right out of the box.

neither
www.zenosys.com nor http://www.zenosys.com/toolkit/index.html are currently working (here at any rate)

But maybe it would pay out to put a pressure on tomos? He received the license in question...

I have to put in a disclaimer now - I'm not writing a novel tongue I'll see about a mini-review at some stage or I could start by posting some comments here when I get to try it out a bit
5249  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / can I add new favourite to "end" of list? on: March 11, 2009, 07:00:57 AM
didnt add any new favourites for months

when I added a new item lately to favourites it took over the #1 position -
this means the shortcuts for all other items in favourites changes.
I'd gotten very used to my small bunch of favourites so I keep pasting the wrong ones now!

Is there a way to change this sequence or
could you change this so as in future new items automatically go to the end of the list/queue?

thanks smiley

has anyone any news about the patch availability from Adobe? only recently the precursor of this bug was covered in DC, where it was mentioned that "patches aren't likely to be ready until March 11th, 2009".

Dangerous Adobe Reader Vulnerability In the Wild

going off-topic briefly
Lanux, you said earlier in thread that you use portable version of reader
Could you recommend a source for that -
I realise they'll take a bit longer to incorporate the Adobe update, whenever that comes ...
