Introducing myself...
« on: September 12, 2006, 07:50:52 AM »
Dear DonationCoder members,
  this is my first post on this forum, let me to introducing myself:  :)

I'm a 41 years old freeware developer (not english language native... excuse me for my poor english :-[).
My preferred development languages are: Assembler, Delphi, C++, BASIC (visual) and Symbian OPL.
In the last year I have developed some freeware applications (free available on my site: http://fsl.sytes.net) and new ones are currently in progress.
I've also published a simple forum in order to collect bugs and to support the users of my freeware programs (http://fsl.sytes.net/forum).
The freeware development is an hobby, for me... my primary job is envolved into firmware and hardware development.
Other my hobbies: Alps mountain climbing and excursions.

Greetings from Italy.
FSL

Don't worry, as long as you speak binary   8)

I know this sounds rude and ungrateful - sorry.  But how do you see, say, Super Finder against Locate32 or WanyWord, and LinksBase against the built-in bookmarks feature of Firefox?

(so much software, so little time...)

Welcome to donationcoder.com!  Looks like you've put together some solid software I'm looking forward to testing.  I'm really looking forward to giving linksbase a spin when it's available -- I've always been a fan of browser independent bookmarking, but haven't had an application I felt was suitable in a long time.

rjbull -- just a few advantages I see for linksbase --
* Browser independence (for those of us who, for one reason or other) switch among browsers frequently and don't want to import/export booksmarks back and forth constantly to synch among browsers
* Faster interface for the above benefits than the alternative solution--web based bookmarks
* Page previews

I see it can merge the bookmark files from different sources, which can be useful.  Sometimes I'd want to keep them separate, and be able to move them from file to file; I suppose that means something like BookmarkBuddy combined with a links stash.  Also I'd want to be able to open links in a chosen browser rather than the local Windows default one, preferably by a hotkey or simple menu.

I'm never quite sure of the best way to store links.  Quite a lot of moderately interesting stuff that I don't use frequently I keep in notekeepers, mostly MemPad or JBLab Secure Notes.  Neither are perfect, but have useful features of their own (e.g. both can be enrypted), and both can be portable.  Lately you seem particularly keen on portability: care to start a new thread on it?
