- but the listed price is $150, giving a theoretical saving on $110, so I simply had to tell!

4802  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Maxthon 2.0.8 beta supports IE/COM plugins on: February 01, 2008, 11:24:20 AM
I tried Maxthon 2 (not beta) just a month ago but still like 1.6 better. However, it is clear to me that most of the new addons and plugins are being written for version 2 only, so one day soon I will be bound to give up on the Classic anyway. I just hope for Maxthon 2 to be faster than so far, and to give me back my Maxthon Start Page in the way that I want it to be. Also, I must be able to add any search engine.

But I didn't try it for long and I didn't take notes on my experience, so maybe I have forgotten or just didn't figure out all of the options and it can already do what I am asking for? Hmm... I better remember to try the next version! You will remember to tell when the stable version with these new features have been launched? Yes, of course you will, Darwin.  Kiss

This post just to inform that SPAMfighter right now is writing a version for Thunderbird.

Welcome to DC iconico

a rather late welcome?  tongue  :


But he is offering an impressive amount of programs:

Quote
Cardio Calipers - Cute Context Menu - Data Extractor - DiskAnalyzer Pro -Easy Sweeper - Email Extractor - Extraction Pack - HTML Text Extractor - Quick Runner - Screen Calipers - Screen Compass - Screen Protractor - Screen Tracing Paper - Sleepy - WebTools Pro

- I wonder if he wrote all of them himself?  undecided

However, Screen Measurement Pack (Screen Calipers, Screen Protractor and Screen Compass) was mentioned in his first post almost a year ago. I for one would sure like to see this bundle offered at Bits du Jour again!  thumbs up
4807  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Best free firewall for Windows? on: January 31, 2008, 03:02:44 PM
Thanks for the headup, Darwin, but No, I removed the folder at once when I uninstalled the program, and besides, I am using a startup manager.

But I too will like to make it clear that I found Online-Armor to be quite a good firewall, only, I had this one or two items...
4808  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Thoosje Quick XP Optimizer on: January 31, 2008, 09:56:22 AM
Adjust for best performance-*Background services*.

- this helped!  Things are happening a little faster now! smiley  thumbs up
4809  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Thoosje Quick XP Optimizer on: January 31, 2008, 01:37:19 AM
- yes, I was trying version 2.0, and I only clicked the two options, Optimize Harddisk and Processor ("By removing limits and disable useless checks to make full use of your harddisk and your processor") and Optimize Applications ("By removing limits and disable useless checks to make full use of your harddisk and your applications").


 
4810  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Thoosje Quick XP Optimizer on: January 30, 2008, 05:01:58 PM
Really, stay away of these auto optimizers.

Maybe it would be appropriate to distinct between this, these and some.

I installed and ran it on my test machine and it made a good difference.

BTW:
- and with option to restore.
thumbs up

---

Will check it out some more after work or tomorrow.
I, for one, will be anxious for your report and findings on this.

- me too, cmpm.
How big a difference do you think it made? How many and which options did you activate?

The only two problems I have found after the first 24 hours of using Online Armor Free are 1) ....-And 2) that Online Armor is too intrusive when I want to uninstall some program. Why on earth must it know if it is okay that I am running an uninstaller?

This mis-feature turned out to be too much for me. The final nail was when I wanted to remove IconBee and had to confirm 3 times that I really wanted to remove the thing! Online Armor is way too intrusive for IT testers.

Online Armor too has left the building...  thumb down

January 16' has come and gone, so the price for Laplink Gold 2008 is once again $90, but I have come to realize that Gold 2008 includes both Acronis Tru Image 10 ($50) and Lavasoft File Schredder ($30), so even $90 for the lot seems an attractive price, I think.

Toohsje has left the building

- because it crashed both itself, my startup manager, and XP. Bye bye!

4814  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: Bits Du Jour and GAOTD one-day deals on: January 30, 2008, 07:47:55 AM
But what would make the difference between such a thread and the one we already have? Doesn't Found Deals and Discounts say what it should say?
4815  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Thoosje Quick XP Optimizer on: January 30, 2008, 01:59:08 AM
I really should have looked more carefully - the answer was of course given at the homepage:


[attachthumb=1]


[attachthumb=2]


- and with option to restore.  thumbs up
4816  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Thoosje Quick XP Optimizer on: January 29, 2008, 05:52:26 PM
none of the "more info" links on that page work

- you already were at the "more info" page.  Wink


Edit: But I need to know if one can choose which features to activate, or if they all are implemented at once?? I really don't want my XP to look like some Win 95   just in order to make it faster...
4817  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: Bits Du Jour and GAOTD one-day deals on: January 29, 2008, 05:41:18 PM
I don't like the idea about sticky links. When 'we' post about some giveaway / offer it is because we have an opinion abouth the program being offered and we want to tell that THIS giveaway / offer is different from all the others.
4818  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Best free firewall for Windows? on: January 29, 2008, 05:28:23 PM
The only two problems I have found after the first 24 hours of using Online Armor Free are 1) that the systray icon doesn't pop up any menu when the icons are "hidden" inside PS Tray Factory. Online Armor Free is the only program I have with this weakness. -And 2) that Online Armor is too intrusive when I want to uninstall some program. Why on earth must it know if it is okay that I am running an uninstaller?

@ Darwin, did you test the not-free version? The free vesion does not have Web-shield, and what other reason could there be for the browser-tab related slowdown you spoke about? I have not yet seen Online Armor Free slowing down my Internet browsing.
4819  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: Bits Du Jour and GAOTD one-day deals on: January 28, 2008, 10:54:15 AM
Yes, Darwin, and I (too) had it for free back then. But I don't have it anymore, because I think the registry cleaner is (was) removing too much!

To my understanding Online Armor is $40 once - not "per year"?  tellme
If so it really is tempting!  thumbs up
4822  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Anyone using Silverlight? on: January 27, 2008, 03:29:03 AM
Silverlight 1.0.21115.0 is working without any problems on my XP, but I have not yet come acrosss any real-life site that is using it, other than Microsoft's demo pages... so if you don't have it  you won't miss it.

http://silverlight.net/
http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/
http://silverlight.live.com/

I don't know anything about Adobe Air, because I don't have Air (!).
4823  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Perfect Software? on: January 26, 2008, 08:52:54 AM
Task Killer is another "perfect" program.
Not updated since 2005, though, so not Vistable.
4824  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: The great defrag shootout on: January 26, 2008, 06:01:42 AM
After having tested almost all of these defraggers 'you' have mentioned, I have settled with Ashampoo Magical Defrag 2, Advanced Registry Doctor Pro and SysInternals PageDefrag.
