Can't speak to WSW, but I use a similar product, Check&Get 3 and setting it up was effortless - you set it to import your bookmarks/favourites and (if you want to streamline things) then select which it will watch and which it won't and you're done. I set it up to watch all of my Maxthon groups rather than importing my favourites. Looking at WSW, I suspect it is much the same. There really isn't much of a learning curve and I urge you to give either a try!

Keep it as an example to others... This is not the first time this has happened (anyone remember PolZegerully?)

Yeah, I'd second that one... I am putting PaperPort Pro through it's paces and wish to H-E-double hockey sticks that it would do this. Who knows, maybe it does. I'm still digging through the tutorials.

In DOpus, if you have two pane view enabled and have your target in one pane and your source (file or folder) in the other, right clicking on the source object and selecting "create shortcut":

[attachthumb=#1]

places a shortcut in the target location:

[attachthumb=#2]

I don't know if this works in other two pane file managers or not, though I suspect that it does...

I must say that my appreciation for the beta of Evernote 2 just took a huge leap forward. I hadn't bothered tagging any of my notes as my habit had been to simply use Evernote's search feature to find what I want and (as noted above, somewhere...) use NetSnippets to organize my notes into folders Well! I got around to playing with Evernote and found that I have 200+ notes. I set up a number of tags and was able to get everything tagged using drag and drop in less than an hour. I love it! Now I just select the tags I want highlighted and if that doesn't reveal what I'm after I use the search feature. Brilliant. I honestly had not appreciated before doing this (yesterday) the big fuss about tagging. I'm very interested in finding good apps for tagging my other files, particularly mp3s (and other format music files) and digital photographs.

I haven't installed the demo for Portfolio and don't think I'll bother. I can't see myself buying a license even if I love it, so am not too motivated. I have a full version of Corel's Snapfire Plus (came as a freebie with PSP XI, which I won in an online contest) that I have yet to install. From the reviews that I read at the time that I won it, it appears not to be in the same league as ACDSEE, Picasa and the organizer that is built into Photoshop Elements (5?). I'll install it and see what I can report.

I noticed nobody mentioned Extensis Portfolio. It's not all that cheap, but it has *all* the features you want.

This is an understatement...! A cursory look at the website for their base product is admittedly compelling - the features and the GUI impress - but the price caused me to choke on my Cheerios. $199! They describe this price as "surprisingly affordable". To whom? Bill Gates? Certainly not this humble consumer... I'll dig around though. Maybe they have an academic license?

Darwin, thanks for the DOpus screenshot.

No problem, Superboyac! Thanks for a great little overview of live search (and again for pointing out the live filter in Dopus).

My vote for freeware author is Jim Wilsher .The others mentioned here are highly deserving in praise as well - and let's not forget mouser and the rest of the donatinocoders in this group too! Despite this:

So who wants to nominate some freeware authors (not on DC!) who we should email a thank you to as our Cody Club task this week?
Jim is the developer of Bulk Rename Utility and is very approachable and helpful. BRU is also the best renamer that I know of, so check it and him out!
6060  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: How do you spend your time on the computer? on: February 22, 2007, 01:25:21 PM
Computer use for me is an avoidance strategy - I'm avoiding using my computer to do what I am supposed to be doing with my computer... Chiefly working on my PhD dissertation. I spend the majority of my time in front of my computer, pursuing this avoidance strategy. I've been spectacularly successful at this and see no end in sight.

Here's what I do:

- surf the net
- read online newspapers
- obsessively peruse the donationcoder forum (no lie)
- prepare powerpoint presentations for my university lectures
- research software/download software
- order books (related to the PhD that I'm NOT doing, er, AM doing - if I say this loud enough, maybe it will come true)
- send and read e-mail
- organize and occasiaionally occasionally edit digital photographs
- play around (without any skill, sadly) with various vector and raster graphics programs
- banking/paying bills
- download, catalogue and promptly forget about thousands of pdf's related to my PhD topic (note that rarely do I actually READ these files)
- occasionally watch movies (dvd's)

Of course, reading the faq is usually a much better way to get to the bottom of things...  embarassed
6063  News and Reviews / Official Announcements / Re: wtfcody.com - Cody now has a home not just an address. on: February 21, 2007, 10:20:36 PM
All right, I'll be the one to ask: WTF does wtf mean in the web address   huh

tinjaw, the Marshall McLuhan connection may be a stretch... But I immediately thought of his famous remark that "the medium is the message". f0dder, I can only say that the WOW factor for me came in because I teach intro cultural anthropology at a college and was blown away by what I perceived to be a highly effective way of contextualizing the information for students. Brilliant.
6065  Special User Sections / General Review Discussion / Re: Free PDF tools review? on: February 21, 2007, 11:46:51 AM
I'm using Nuance (Scansoft) PDF Converter Professional 4 and it works really well. I noticed a big improvement in performance, reliability and the "play nice" factor with other software when I moved from v.3 to 4. Anyway, definitely worth a look (IMHO)...

PS They've fixed the activation problems that plagued version 3 (any time you had to repair the installation it needed to be reactivated a major PIA and scary, too, because you only had - I believe - 9 activations). Note though, that there is no free support (bad - though they have a fairly comprehensive FAQ, and decent documentation. It may be better than decent but I've only superficially scanned it...). Finally, there is no trial BUT they have either a 30 or a 90 day no questions asked return policy, which I used when I purchased another of their products without any trouble (it was OmniPage Pro 15 - I wound up purchasing it afterall... long story. Love it).

I've watched it several more times and am still blown away. Marshall McLuhan would have loved this!

WOW! Thanks Edvard, what a fantastic find.

PS urlwolf - to see the filters next to location in Dopus, alt-click on a toolbar (or just right click and select customize). In the dialog that appears, select the Commands tab, then view. Now drag "file filter field" out of the dialog and drop it next to the location bar. Voilà!

Like nudeone, I didn't know that Dopus 8.x had such a feature and have now implemented it. I can't believe I didn't know about it - I've been on Dopus since 6.1, for at least five years. Live and learn. Thanks Superboyac!

Bruce - I couldn't agree with you more about the need for ease of use. I hope mouser is right and that there is text editor that will do what you seek available already. I look forward to hearing more about it when you find it (I took a kick at googling for it this morning and didn't turn up very much).

6073  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Brillant Text Editor (search functions) on: February 14, 2007, 12:35:24 AM
OK, I'm obviously out of my depth here. I thought that reg ex searching would allow one to do just what the OP is asking. However, given the fact that I find reg ex to be somewhat mysterious (ie, I have a vague idea of its power and an even vaguer idea of how to write reg ex searches), smart searching would be wonderful  embarassed
6074  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Brillant Text Editor (search functions) on: February 14, 2007, 12:23:06 AM
Won't EditPad do this? It's got built in reg expression searching...
6075  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: What was your favorite saturday morning cartoon? on: February 13, 2007, 01:45:32 PM
Er... I'm dating myself here, but it was Mr. Dressup and The Friendly Giant for me. Later, when ma and pa kettle weren't around to tell me not to, I really liked afterschool cartoons. My favourites were the Fantastic Four and some space thing that had Kasey Kasem doing to voice of Mark, the leader. Was it G-Force? OK - just confirmed that it was Battle of the Planets.
