General Software Discussion / Alternative to Linkman
« on: November 28, 2012, 11:45 PM »
In both IE9 and Opera12.11 Linkman/its toolbar does not save links,ie. nothing happens no add bookmark window shows up at all, and if it does its always empty (no URL is automatically copied in).

Only workaround (80% success) : I must first select-then-rightclick-copy each  URL in addressbar of each browser, then rightclick linkman icon in traybar, next left-click "add & edit bkmk from browser" -then it works , but only 80% of the time. I am now fed up of these extra steps to add just one URL.

With even one( or more than one) tab open in either browser, it never adds the correct tab link(it can't seize URL of tab in focus), and many times I keep seeing the earlier url that I manually copied, in the add bookmark window ie. in rare cases where I do see an add bookmark window its mostly blank or has the earlier URL copied by me persisting for ever.

Linkman's Opera addon toolbar(extension) in Opera at right top of browser window never works for me (inspite of reinstalling it so many times), what works is only rightclick from trayicon(80% of the time), same in IE9.  Have scanned & checked for malware with variety of tools - nothing detected. I have no other problems with any other software on this system.
 
Have reinstalled Linkman Pro many times, but no use.
My system : Vista Business 32bit with EsetAV 4.x latest ,MBAM with protection & web disabled, IE9 & all latest Windows updates.
 
Did email support with screenshots but never got any resolution to this.  

Can anyone suggest alternative bookmark software (not cloud) that works seamlessly with IE9, Opera and maybe Firefox & Chromium/Chrome ? Something similar to Powermarks would be great.

Thanks for suggestions,
Ska

If you set GoogleChrome as your default, and uninstall it later , your Outlook can get messed up, and you probably need a fresh Windows install. The author provides a reg file to cleanly remove traces of G Chrome left behind after uninstall.

The catch : Never set Google Chrome as default browser , if you  rely on Outlook/Word etc(MS apps) to work correctly.

Living Room / Secure big file service ?
« on: October 23, 2010, 11:03 PM »
Please recommend a big file transfer service(free or paid) that can help me do this:

I need to get large files ,eg 100-200MB max from an associate in Europe(I am in Asia).

I need to own the account & control their access to it eg by give them a username/pwd, valid for a limited time period etc.   Files must be virus scanned (can pay for this).

In short I look for a service (free or paid) that allows others to upload my account, so I can retrieve the files later

Thanks for all ideas !

« on: August 20, 2010, 07:16 AM »
I have 3 domains parked with Network Solutions, which becoming costlier to renew.

Any reliable host to whom I could transfer/renew these domains to - any ideas?
I dont have any websites yet, I just need the domains parked with private registration/similar security.

Is it easy to transfer my domains out of Network Solutions' clutches ?

Grateful for any tips

Google Chrome Frame boosts IE speed up to Chrome levels
http://blogs.zdnet.com/hardware/?p=5580

A reader comments under thsi article :
"Microsoft may even be a little happy about this
    Google has developed a solution that:
    1. allows IE to maintain support for existing, IE-dependent apps/sites.
    2. brings all versions of IE into full compliance with the latest web standards.
    3. brings blazing-fast JavaScript performance to all versions of IE.
    4. brings the latest HTML5 functionality, to all versions of IE.
    5. reduces web development & support costs (no more IE "customizations").
    6. reduces/eliminates the need for Flash/Silverlight (devs can use HTML5 audio/video/canvas, etc.).
    7. reduces/eliminates the need for users to change to another browser, to get these enhancements.
    8. reduces the need/urgency for Microsoft to do it.

    I think Google deserves a lot of credit, for figuring this out."

But: MS warns that Chrome Frame makes IE more insecure/trojan-susceptible ?

Has Google done the impossible(bested MS where others like Netscape/Mozilla couldn't) ?

Dear All

I use PGOffline -an offline Yahoo newsgroup downloader/database which recently stalled due changes at Yahoo's end, plus lack of developer(s) - the original guy left.
I could not find any other product like it on the web.  Its current status reported here:   http://www.personalg...ndex.php?topic=718.0

I wonder if any experienced programmer(s) may be willing to help Wilson Logan (contact him at www.pgoffline.com)

Thanks
