Hi Darwin,

That are good news. They are quite active indeed.
Yesterday, I sent my registration to the GemX forum and I received the validation e-mail very quickly.
They have charged their batteries and it seems that they are plenty of energy.
We will see...

Bo

Hi Darwin,

I entered my old username and password and after three error pages (I assumed that the old pass and user were deleted) it worked. I realized that I was already within the registered users area. I cheked my account details and I downloaded the update of DO3. So, try it. At least in my case it was not necessary to contact the GemX's.

I hope that they update TexNotes soon.

HI Guys,

GemX is back in business!! They completely changed their website and there is also a new version of DO available for download. Maybe I am quite naive but perhaps this time they won't fail us.

Take a look!

Hi guys,

The GemX team has posted a big piece of news informing that all forums are closed down because they can not afford enough man-hours to maintain them and that they had "to organize their priorities as needed" (sic). Also, they greatly appreciate the collaboration of all of us that have posted messages in the forum, especially doublewitt (formerly Tiptop). So, bad news but at least something is moving, it seems that there is still some life inside GemX. Less is nothing.

I hope that one of their priorities will be the release of DO3 and TNP updates as soon as possible since all their man-hours can be focused now on that work. We would greatly appreciate that some information about the current state of these topics.

I think that they (GemX) is also reading this forum...so, don't hesitate to SHOUT IT OUT LOUD: WE ARE STILL WAITING FOR THE UPDATES, DON'T FORGET YOUR CLIENTS!

Hi everybody,

I've been looking for a good replacement of DO for several weeks and the answer is that I finally migrated all my stuff to Outlook 2007. I have to say that I never used DO as e-mail client because I feel very comfortable with Thunderbird and/or Outlook. However, DO is a excellent manager for calendar appointments, tasks, contacts and password manager, planner, notekeeper, etc. So, I checked other software to replace basically these functions. Here is a list:

1) Agenda MSD (http://www.msdsoft.com): excellent PIM for everyday appointments, contacts and tasks. It is very flexible, light, and it has some great and useful functions (history of records) but, on the other side, the interface is, in my opinion, not very pleasant and outdated. However, updates are very frequent and it is a cheap product. Actually, I use this program together with Outlook 2007.

2) Agenda-at-once; Time and Chaos; WinOrganizer: I've tried all these programs but I didn't find the (perfect?) equilibrium that I found in DO. So, you can try and udge for yourself. Every program has its pros and cons, it is difficult to rate them since every user would have its own opinion.

3) Rainlendar (http://www.rainlendar.net): very nice, light-weight, flexible and simple organizer for everyday appointments and tasks. However, it lacks other functions of their older brothers (althought theprogram is not intended to replace heavy-weight organizers).

4) Notekeepers and Outliners: I'm a crazy fanatic of outliners. I've purchased TexNotes first and Pro after the update. TNP is a fantastic and flexible outliner and notekeeper but for me is too heavy (Painting and Draw functions are leftovers and, in my opinion, not necessary in these type of programs). After TNP I decided to tried other outliners (MyNotesKeeper, TreeDBNotes Pro, MyInfo, NotesOrganizer, etc.). In my opinion, the best replacement of TNP is Whizfolders Organizer (now in its DeLuxe Edition; http://whizfolders.com/?did=mws). Very nice and flexible program, especially to take notes from the web, scracht pieces of information and, last but not least, as a cross-linking note program. Those interested in a note manager/outliner should try this piece of software. It is cheap and the supporting team is good.
In the freeware section, the old KeyNote (http://www.tranglos....om/free/keynote.html) still has the first position in the list. It is a pitty that the project is closed down and no more updates will be released. The program is very flexible, light-weight and open-source.

OK friends, these are my findings. I didn't check e-mail managers since, as I said above, Thunderbird ad Outlook are, in my opinion, unbeateable on this field. I do hope that this brief sumary would help.

Just a final question... there is anybody out here that is still confident that GemX will be back on business?

Best regards to all, our union is our strenght.

Hi everybody,
I'm another complaining GemX products user. I've been posting several comments on the GemX forum until it "crashed". However, today I'm less frustated after discovering this forum and all the GemX users that I used to read on the original company forum. Thanks for your optimism and ueful information.
Just to say that I'm so desperate that the last weekend I moved all my stuff from DO3 to Outlook 2007. I do seriously begin to doubt that GemX will be back.  :(
Best regards

bo
