Very nice to see that they are in support of Portable Salamander.

Hello AlteriX, Well done!

Servant Salamander is my favorite File Manager as well, been using it since v1.52.

I have a question:

I am running Servant Salamander 2.5 beta 11 on my thumbdrive at work where I do not have admin rights (Windows 2k.)  I also have installed it on the Local Hard Drive there (I seem to be able to install certain programs.)  I guess my question is, Is Servant Salamander placing temp files somewhere (or permanent files)?  If so, where.... Local Settings? Registry?  Or is it only the Plug-ins that are put somewhere temporarily or permanantly?   I hope you can shed some light on this for me, as Servant Salamander seems to work well from both the Hard Drive and the USB Portable already. 

Again, thank you for your work on Servant Salamander, please keep it up, it's a worthy program!  :Thmbsup:

Why I used Screenshot Captor of course!   Screen Capture on 'roids ;D

Then I used imageshack to host the pictures. Seems to work good.

As far as Slickrun is concerned Mouser, I guess I like, for instance, just typing d for and the ENTER key and it pops up the webpage and I don't have to even look at it.  This is gonna sound dumb maybe, because I know that F+R Robot does that too, but in F+R Robot I have to: look and see that the correct pgm is in the list, then press an extra key to select it (1,2,3 etc) don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, it's just an extra necessary step with that pgm that I don't have to do with Slickrun.  :-[   For finding files though, I like F+R Robot, which Slickrun doesn't do as far as I know.  So, they both have their place in my heart (and  Great question, comments welcome!  :)

I've got to agree with f0dder on this one.  I've tested Dirms+Buzzsaw combo just to see if it worked as well as PerfectDisk, since it was opensource, free and at that time I hadn't yet bought PD.

After running it through it's paces for about a week, my computer seemed a little slower and response time was not what I was used to, but I kept it on for awhile, keeping other aspects of my machine clean and organized (crapcleaner, TuneUp utilities, etc).  It wasn't that my computer was slow, I just noticed a difference.  So I decided to put PerfectDisk back on and whoa!, speedy again. So long story short, I can recommend PerfectDisk (WinXP).  Oh by the way f0dder, I think that other defragger program you were thinking of is Diskeeper maybe.  Hope this semi-review helps someone.


Hey all,

Here are some programs that run all/most of the time for me:

My Systray

Screenshot Captor - The one we all know and love  :D

SlickRun is a free floating command line utility for Windows. SlickRun gives you almost instant access to any program or website.

Gizmo -
Gizmo Project uses your internet connection (broadband or dial-up) to make calls to other computers.  Works like Skype, but opensource friendly.

Find and Run Robot (super happy version lol)

Free Ram XP Pro -
Freeware application to free and optimize your computer's RAM (Random Access Memory), resulting in an increase in system performance and productivity. Automatically configures itself for ease of use and also features advanced options and customizability.

SpeedFan -
Like Motherboard Monitor, I like this a little more though.
SpeedFan is a freeware program that monitors voltages, fan speeds and temperatures  in computers with hardware monitor chips.

Dachshund Software -
A suite of Apps that optimize, accelerate and improve windows.

Servant Salamander -
Oh my, what can I say about this one  :Thmbsup: ...better than any File Manager I have used, and I've tried alot! Deeper than first impressions give, fast and reliable; I can't be without this one for sure.

Agnitum Outpost Firewall 3 - of the best firewalls IMO, haven't had any problems with this version so far, but I've heard of issues from others from this forum.

KDX (server) -
Small, multi-platorm, BBS style chat, file transfer etc. "KDX is like a swiss army knife for internet and intranet communications."

Peer Guardian -
IP Blocker for windows.  Even if you don't use P2P, you'd be surprised what IP's are knocking at your door constantly. You need this (or something like it.)

HLWin -
I play alot of Half Life, and this program allows me to play full screen, windowed...I can alt+tab and not leave my game.

Avast! Antivirus -
This antivirus rocks, plain and simple.

Keeps your CPU rested. Check the site for info.

Well, that's about it.  looking forward to other members Systray programs.  Cheers!

I like ObjectDock from Windowsblinds, but I prefer the Tabbed Visulization, that way I can group similiar programs per tab. But I've stopped using it due to finding an idea I like a little better.....(slickrun)

SlickRun is a pretty cool "launcher" that I like for it's simplicity and power.  I haven't had to make any shortcuts anymore since using it (not the normal ones anyway, just 'magicwords',...  :) Anyway, check it out.

Hey mouser.   Were these help videos made with BB Flashback?  I was thinking about taking advantage of the discount for that software and was just wondering.  Thanks :)
