So, is it any good? Or is it as lame as the shareware version?

I have no intention of trying it, so far. I am merely keeping a copy for some rainy day when I for some yet unknown reason decide to remove Quizo Tabbar!

Nighted, your next post is #500... This calls for a toast! :drinksmiley:

Why thank you Curt.  :)

Now to answer my own question....Instant ThumbView Free Edition, on an Ass-O-Meter of 1 to 10 gets an 11!!! Way to go exlax!!!!

I couldn't even get it to work. Besides, it doesn't even support PNG. Lame....

I'm neither surprised or disappointed. I just had to check it out as I knew what to expect beforehand. ;)

The free version of Instant ThumbView only works with the Scroll Lock on. It only supports BMP, GIF and JPEG image files. And it display the annoying text “FREE edition ContextMagic.com” on the thumbnail.

I do not know too much about programming but if someone knows, maybe he can be interested in this.

I tested it and it crashed the explorer but it works. It is like a copy of Instant ThumbView.

I should mention that ShortPopUp also has the ability to show thumbs on folders and render them from image files. Rendering from image files isn't perfect as they are stretched to the default dimensions. Even if you set the dimensions yourself, anything much different would look a bit off. Still, you could find what you're looking for. The folder icon view is with ShortPopUp's setting set at 128x128. The one below is default. If there were a portrait style image being viewed, it would be stretched (or squashed, however you look at it).

Somehow we ended up talking a lot about beer, at this thread:


In that case, can I come over too?  Pilsners are the best, and so are blonds. :-)
Sometimes I really miss Germany, but Pittsburgh has a German certified brewer, so I am doing better than most. If you are ever this way, you MUST try Penn Pilsner and/or Penn Dark (the two best brews he puts out).  They are just as good as the Euro-beers I had when living in Bitburg.
If you have easy access to Penn Pilsner you need not go anywhere...
- except for a blonde :-)

By the way; Carlsberg and Tuborg are by far the two most sold beers from Denmark,
but by far not the two best... How come marketing is so more important than quality?
Ha ha... not unlike Budweiser in the States and Fosters in Australia - shipped and hyped around the world but far from the best that either country has to offer!
Ha ha... not unlike Budweiser in the States...
I have tasted the original Budweiser from the old Czechoslovakia and it is one of the best beers you can have. At all. And a lot older than Budweiser. But they never thought of protecting their name, so the Americans banded it. You can still have it, of course, but with a different name: Budvar. http://www.budvar.cz/en/index.html
Info: The original Czech Budweiser is in English pronounced 'Boodvaisor'.]
Yes, you're right Curt. I've tried the original Czech Budvar, which is why I specified that I was talking about the US one. I had a Czech flat-mate in university who was APPALLED by American Budweiser and incensed about the name. AFAIK, though, the "King of Beers" was originally brewed by a Czech immigrant to the States and he named it after the Czech version, probably never dreaming that it would become so successful!

- so when I found this picture from Tchechien (:auf Deutsch; what is the Engl. name?) I felt a need to show it to all who likes a genuine beer:

so I dont have to feel too bad staying off-topic:

Chezch Czech Republic in english Curt
I think Budweiser(US) was trying to buy out the Czech brewery a couple of years ago so that they could sell their rice brew in Europe
(nothing against rice but ...)
thankfully they failed
Currently Anheuser-Busch cant sell their beer in europe (teehee :))
