But it's a dry heat.

I am, for the most part, what you might call a lurker on this forum. I'm not a developer, but enjoy looking for, testing, and playing with software of all types. When I enter this forum I just about always scan Page #1 and maybe click back to Page #2.  Tonight I decided to go all the way back to Page 146 and to an entry by Mouser on May 13, 2005. 

Wow! From there it was like taking a walk through a really cool museum. Discussions about the new Thunderbird email client; Mouser posting an entry about a new tool/toy called Google Earth; GrafxShop; konfabulator, thinbasic; Qumana; and on and on.

Found a link to a French language software blog that my version of Chromium now easily translates - led me to a file manager I'm going to try called  Multi Commander.

It's pretty amazing how things have changed in just 6 years!  Try taking a stroll down the DonationCoder memory lane sometime.

Did you ever try this?  I came across it today via "The Portable Freeware Collection" -- looks quite nice!

-I tried it just a little today, because of yesterday's update. During first launch (portable 64 bit version) I asked for hotkeys a la Windows (F5=refresh, etcetera), but the GUI was their private setup (F5=Copy, etcetera) all the same. When I then opened the otherwise brilliant Button Editor, it asked me to click the button that I wanted to edit, but stayed in front of the buttons! => I had to first grap and move the editor's window, before I could use it.

This was all I got to try, before I was called away. Still, I want to test it more thoroughly tomorrow; despite these minor "errors", the program looks very capable.

I do this on the order of once a year or so, just going back to the beginning and browsing through until I fall asleep.
If I remember correctly, the post categories weren't always the way they are now, and the coding snacks section was once the busiest part (it's what brought me here by way of Shell Extension City)

Good times, good times...

Thanks for sharing your experience.

I didn't find:

  Configuration ->
    Quick Look'n'Feel Setup...

to work as I expected either.

FWIW, to get Refresh to be F5 instead of F2, I made some changes via:

  Configuration ->
    Keyboard Customization

Some rough edges for sure (e.g. Tray Icon behavior seemed quirky), but looks promising smiley

I think it was this post by mouser that made me visit DC the first time,
and to become a member the very next day:
