General Software Discussion / Re: GemX - missing in action

From the little testing of TexNotes that I did, I don't think it can add to what you have (Onenote, Evernote). Well depends on what you are looking for. To me TexNotes was more about text formatting and editing and such (and very powerful), than about data, which is where Onenote and Evernote shall be more powerful. GUI seemed extremely overdone, way too many things, but it was also very configurable so no problem..

For current DO users: if any of you use spreadsheets, that functionality was removed in 3.1, so before upgrading, copy your spreadsheets elsewhere !

Btw. I have just received a reply from GemX through DSM, in about 2 hours after the request. (And it's long after their business hours.)

I don't think that GemX applications have no future - they have been around for some time, and I bet they still will.

Get their product if you like how it works now.
If you would be purchasing it due to a future potential (as surprisingly many people do), don't do it. Wait until bugs get fixed and functionality implemented.
Don't buy if you need a community around (apparently the forum will never be reinstalled).

I think they are good people, just that it sometimes goes over their head.

They are promising way too much. Things they can manage when all works, but when things fall apart (due to whatever reason, nobody knows, family problems?, health?, no time due to other obligations?), they can't fulfill the promises anymore.

I bought the product for half the price on a special, and for that price it's OK if you ask me. I never had a single problem with them, and my only support request was answered within few hours through DSM. I didn't like that they shut down the forum with all my posts, and particularly with other users posts, some were helpful tips. But that's life.

Has anyone else tried this software? I wonder; is the "permissions" based filtering more efficient? I only have a 14 day trial, and so, I sort of need more time...

Anybody know more about the permissions vs bayesian?... which generally produces better results...
Ask them for more trial time, most shareware authors can help with that.
I wouldn't consider permission based filtering myself, as I would view it as bothering the people that I email with, and other filtering methods work well for me. Yet I can see this method has it's place on the market.
There are people (very small minority) who ignore authorization requests.
You can implement simple permission based system in more powerful email clients too, even if it's not built in, through filtering. For example in Pocomail it would be easy, and I bet some other email clients could do it too.
(Espresso looks neat indeed, judging from the screenshots.)

I'm a big SpamBayes fan as well. I never had a false positive. I even kept checking for quite a few weeks after the initial one or two week training phase, but no false positive whatsoever.
All in all I save insane time on not having to check junk mail folders anymore.
Yes, I too still get some spam emails, but it takes a second to delete. If I could be bothered with some more training and tweaking, it would for sure go down significantly.

Someone asked about Dobberman database that's in DO, they use Accuracer database. Download Accuracer tools and you can access your DO database.


and honorary mention to Marek's KeyNote, I moved from it to UltraRecall in 2007 (due to it's database-like work), but I still have yet to see anything that could beat KeyNote in it's core functionality (at least in what was core f. to me).
