texter from lifehacker my personal favorite text expander, written in AHK
Regards

Lifehacker has changed a lot since then, so there is no "Texter Installer 0.6.exe" file any more. Do you have a copy (or newer) that I can have a copy of, please? I believe it's small enough to be uploaded here.

I found the Texter page in Wayback:
http://web.archive.org/web/20190207163021/https://lifehacker.com/lifehacker-code-texter-windows-238306
 - but the v0.6 download doesn't seem to work (endless wait; presumably not captured)

However, I did find this:
https://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enhancements/LH-Texter.shtml
Is it a continuation of the same thing as discussed above?
I only briefly looked around, but it seems to be OpenSource{?}, so presumably it's been under some continuing development.
There's apparently a Windows installer and a portable version.
I was tempted to try it out...

Yeah... the one that I posted had all sorts of links about the current status of texter.

Oh, that's right, I thought this looked familiar. It's (v0.6) in my archives - I didn't think to look there.
I've been down this road before. In 2008 I downloaded and trialled it, but Texter hadn't been developed beyond v0.6 (and it still hasn't) and has basically been left behind as technology develops. I'd forgotten about it. I suggest you do too!   ;D
