Dear Fred, My laptop has tons of installed programs (in fact, if I didn't categorize them into submenus, my Start/Programs directory would run into several columns beyond the right edge of my monitor screen). This creates a problem when I have to access a particular program...figuring out where exactly it's categorized, then navigating to it on my touchpad through several submenus, et al...but now I've discovered this great piece of freeware — Find and Run Robot — which searches for any installed program on the fly, as one types in the program name, and then launches it with a single keypress. It even searches for data files!
Way to go Rajeev! It was noted again in Langa's 2005-07-25 Plus letter (see correction below).

just to clarify - this was from newsletter of 6/27 and i believe was the only time dc(c) has been mentioned in langa's newlsetter.

but hey, always nice to relive the good days, and hopefully he'll notice our other apps eventually smiley

Sorry about that. That was the original mention. It's noted again in the 2005-07-27 issue at http://www.langalist.com/...2005/2005-07-25plus.asp#7
