PBOL / Re: High res version of PBOL?
« on: January 29, 2019, 09:27 AM »
So ... Mouser: I was just wondering if you have had time to look into this yet? You were going to try to get to it by the beginning of the year and you asked me to remind you, so ...

Wow. Congratulations and I wish you all the happiness and joy possible.

 :Thmbsup: I just tested it out, and it works a treat. I don't need any further layers of opacity, this works just fine. I do wonder if you should consider uprevving this to signal the new feature to other users.

Hi Wraith
I was just wondering if there could be a control for the level of transparency. I sometimes use a fairly busy desktop, and I would love it if this program could be a bit more visible.

I noticed that you have fixed the high resolution issue with launchbar commander. I wonder if you could do the same for Progress Bars Of Life? I love this program, but I have had to default to one bar type in order to read what it there. I know that this is not your most popular program, but I use it all the time and would love to be able to use it without the magnifying glass.  :D

Since you ask, I have been using Trello lately, and I would love a plugin that allows me to quickly capture any tasks that come to mind and send them to my trello in box

I am very sorry.  There is nothing to say except that I am sorry for your loss.

General Software Discussion / Re: Fastest note taking tool?
« on: August 18, 2014, 01:37 PM »
One that has not been mentioned, but that I love for this purpose is anuran by our own Skwire.  Fully portable, and pops up take the note and then have it timestamped and available later.

I would like to have it not docked, but not in front of (or on top of) all the other windows I have open. Most other software offers me a choice of on top, on bottom, on desktop, normal etc.

Another great app.  The one thing I wish for is the ability to pin it to my desktop.  Sometimes I just want to use it for reference between items I am working on, to help me hang on to urgency.

Living Room / Re: Some initial reflections on using an ebook reader
« on: August 14, 2010, 09:51 AM »
I have a sony reader I got for Xmas, and I really love it.  I am a heavy fiction reader, and I travel, and I discovered that I can move to a smaller suitcase since I can carry all my reading material in a single small device in my carry on bag.  (although, I am a little distressed to discover that I can't use it during take offs and landings, even though it has no wireless component at all. ) Also, since I can dump PDF files on it, I carry all my meeting notes on it as well.

General Software Discussion / Re: Timeline Software
« on: August 17, 2009, 04:20 PM »
LifeJournal2 has a pretty good timeline feature that might be what you are looking for. 

Mouser: I do this every day.  I set aside the last half hour of my day at work and then the last half hour before bed and write an assessment, and a plan for the next day.  Lately I have been using Wikidpad as the tool for this, mainly because of the strength of its todo function.  Basically, I write stream of consciousness, and when I get an idea for a task I just type todo: and the idea.  I have added Christian Ziemski's GTD patch, which basically created a page that collects all the todo statements I have made anywhere in the Wiki and allows me to add filters and date assignments.  All very text feeling, and simple, but I create tomorrow's todo list as I go.  Take a look and see what you think.

how about:

Or the other way around?

Found Deals and Discounts / Re: GemX Crazy Summer Specials
« on: June 22, 2008, 02:19 PM »
I have to say that I visited the "missing in action" topic, and I was stunned by the negativity there :o.  This is such a nice place ordinarily that I thought it significant.  After all, if a company can pi** off that many of the people on this forum, they must be really baaaad.  Still, I had played with the do-organizer software in an earlier version, and was fairly impressed.  I was also impressed with the price of the entire package.  I liked the software, but not enough to justify $165 US to get the parts I liked.  At $60 US however, I had to download the new version.  So, don't anybody throw anything at me, but I kinda like it :tellme:.  It imported my outlook stuff seamlessly, everything can be linked to everything else, and all the pieces seem to work.  That is to say that I have been playing with it for a couple of days and nothing has failed to perform as I expected it to (except the license, which seems to be a decimal point off as noted above.)  Also, it lives on my thumb drive, giving me a portability I need.  Wherever the bugs are, I don't think they cause the program to be unstable. 
I never visited the Gemx forums, and I have had no occasion to interact with their tech support, so I can't really address those issues.  I do feel like the summer sale might be an attempt to make amends for former poor performance, and I think everyone deserves the chance to redeem themselves. 
Just my 2 cents, but I will probably buy the license.

How is it that SQLNotes manages to hijack every freakin' thread lately?
Maybe because it's so freakin versatile?  :)

Back to the original question, I have been having really good luck with from the open source community.  Really pretty cool stuff, a timeline that is zoomable  :up:

What I really want is an information manager:
  • that is always available, discreet, but pops up when I need it
  • that I can drag and drop URLs, images, text, etc, into when I want to make quick note of something,
  • that is easy to organize
  • that allows me to format entries in any way I like
  • that can cross-reference or cross-link items into multiple topics
  • that is quickly searchable
  • that can link topics to programs and files
  • that is easily navigated
  • etc, etc, etc.

Don't want much, do I?
I have to say that your list is a perfect description of evernote.  I have been using it since early beta testing, and I have to say that it meets every requirement on your list (with the possible exception of the etc, etc, etc
