... Linkman seems very good compared to the numerous bookmark managers I have tried over the years.
True. Earlier, there was no comparison between Powermarks and the bunch, and now Linkman has changed the landscape and added many new versatilities (e.g. User Defined fields, printing formats and maybe 5-10 or more others) that we are just working with now. Since you learn how to pull up data quickly in Linkman, you begin to use it as your PIM (at least I do) .. the big problem with PIMs was .. combining one with bookmarks !
There may be some folks who don't tailor to Linkman well, and one or two other programs mentioned look like good, solid bookmark programs. (To be fair to the others, e.g miTaggedMarks seems to be a worthy program, many/most bookmark programs though are just light nothings.) However with bookmarks as our central net-thought-repository, a sharp bookmark sword is very fine and so we like to really learn how to use the program. Thus the discussions here.
On top of all that we have the programmer's responsiveness and willing to mix it up with folks in thoughtful dialog (both on forum and private) and then bring new ideas to fruition. Very sweet, and builds a lot of confidence. A lot of the recent features relate directly to discussions with DC folks. And real substantive enhancements, such as the word-search toggle alternative mentioned here.
Oh, thanks for the kind words above, guys. I really appreciate the thoughtfulness on DonationCoder, like folks want to use their puters like art and music and song .. humming nicely .. as well as simply solid good tools, wrenches and engines. This neat tude makes it worthwhile to think through the posts and to read carefully.
Oh, I started to use Linkman for the Windows functions (remember I asked about the internal urls, which it turns out were already a feature). System Restore and System Info and such. A minor thing, and I still like XP Syspad which I sometimes keep open, and most of that stuff is not toooo hard to find. I would use Linkman as a launcher, a pseudo-Start-Menu except I have that well organized to my specs already. (e.g Start-->Utilities-->File Managers--> TotalCommander).
The internal feature is more for .html and .pdf and .jpg and .dbf and other files that you have on your disk for which you want to have quick recall, in the long run I could see some moderately heavy usage, perhaps in tandem with one of the net-notes type programs (Canaware, Surfalator, Scrapbook or Zotero if they save to your disk would be the internal function, if to the net the normal URL bookmark function). Anybody who forges ahead in those realms of net-note / bookmark combining, share away !
