Is this the best option out there.  the current hosting company?  I assume you have already shopped around for the best possible solution?

Saw posts about this before but never did anything towards giving it a try. Gonna give this a go myself, using Maxthon. Will report back.

I just recently tried ad muncher, even though i use maxthon which is quite capable itself.  I think between the two of them my surfing is even better.  I was curious what this special something for DonationCoder users might be?  As I am considering a purchase.

I would second that, gosh I love my Bookmark Buddy. Happy registered user for 6 years here.  The author has always been receptive to some new ideas.  Releases are not regular but it does keep moving along, although at a slow pace. Good Luck with your search.  I also have to say, dig deep into this program, its not as basic as it appears on the surface.  Import & Export features are great too.

ROFL, nice view., I think i'm hungry now.

I like it, a nice little asterisk next to the roundup/reviewed software piece, pointing out interactions like this should most definitely be made an extended part of the review.

I've got to say that was a timely review put forth by nudone. I was beginning to wonder if my xnview was worth comparing against everything else out there the last couple months. I am more intrigued about the turnaround of this past version of acdsee now. At least I dont have to waste my time again on all the others out there. So thanks & I was happy to donate a tiny little something via this new feature.

He used to, but i never saw one left, I think most must have been too awed to press any keys in response :P

no doubt big fan of Zaine's for a bit now.   i dont have to speak what i feel, i just read it in his blog entries.


Personally I use Folder Express, found here:

I also once used Doc Commander (, but it seems as though devleopment has ceased there.

Living Room / Re: how to give out software gifts
« on: July 02, 2005, 02:53 PM »
How about just post a thread in members section; we have, say, 2 copies of VMWare available for giveaway to members (donators or whatever).  Please respond to this thread to enter your name in this drawing if this software would be useful to you.  Something simple like that. You can post who won a copy or not post, but at least you aren't giving software away to people who aren't interested and you aren't neglecting anyone ;). Say, maybe leave the thread open for a week to post & enter your name for the drawing. Sound fair?

Unfinished Requests / Re: IDEA: extra window functions
« on: June 30, 2005, 09:55 PM »
I purchased Actual Window Manager about 4 months ago. It is a great, reliable app. Be careful if you do decide to purchase it as I had to get the author to guaruntee me updates for 6 months. Their policy for software upgrades are, if you buy at version 3.6 and the next major version is 4.0 (three months later), there is an upgrade fee. I find this to be unforgivable with software developers. The nice thing for Actual Tools software is that I am allowed to use a copy on my main PC, HTPC and my laptop (it's like the license for ONE USER approach, which is the way it should be for people who have many PC's they use). I was a former customer of Calendarscope (among other softwares), which wanted an upgrade fee every year, but they rarely do much in the way of consistent development, so I said no thanks.

bookmark buddy is $30, yikes(!).

i'd love a (free) bookmark manager helper that didn't require me to import and export bookmarks from and to browser, but just did it automatically..

did you try it though? ;)

Bookmark Buddy -->
I've been happy with that for years now & it keeps evolving, slowly.

i agree with nudone on free membership to a friend. would be good for exposure on one side, but on the other it goes against the concept of membership here.  besides if a friend would like it here, it's either easy enough to donate or just ask for special circumstances in an email. still having an invitation link/email would be a must.

Living Room / Re: First 2-part review has started
« on: May 30, 2005, 02:28 PM »
I just think the extra time to do the review itself (no rushing things out the door) & encouraging members to provide feedback into the programs with so much time to do so as well, will make a huge difference in the final released reviews. Also having guest reviews with people with heavy expertise in a given areas, great stuff!

doh! i'm blind.  sorry.  i agree about not wanting people to join for that reason of course.

Living Room / Re: First 2-part review has started

I truly believe this every other week thing will make these reviews a huge success.  Unlike anything else on the web.  How often do you have a group of software freaks working on a community review of a particular category of software for an entire week? Every other week nonetheless! This is a great approach, good work mouser, your open mind with this site makes it invaluable to everyone who uses it now and finds it later.  Peace.  vegas

well no matter how you look at it, 99% of the soldiers haven't done anything wrong. so praise & prayer to them. now as to the decisions that were made to put them there and keep them comment.

I don't see any mention of gifts? The fact is you have already given away free software, expensive even at that. It's a great plug for membership, especially if all you have to do is be a member & be active to have a chance at gettin some.  It doesnt matter to me personally, but anything to get more people into the fold.  ;)

Living Room / Links Page - Best Freeware Development?
« on: May 30, 2005, 01:17 PM »
Here is something I was thinking of when i first saw the links page here, but of course never followed up on it till now ;)  It would be nice to add Top Freeware Developers to the links page as well - if this is something that is doable.  This could be a long messy list, but i was thinking more along the lines of developers who have dedicated themselves over time to providing software  that is: quality, has a well designed interface, is complete, essential/invaluable, reliable, with up-to-date versions, including a wide selection of programs in freeware form.  I would love to kick of a list with three sites that come to mind: (which is what reminded me of the whole idea when mouser posted that link)

I'm sure there are plenty others, I just don't feel like thinking that hard right now, it's a holiday ;)

Living Room / Re: Ideas for thanking donators?
« on: May 29, 2005, 05:22 PM »
ummm how about an active, always evolving site! what else could one ask for? well ok maybe an occasional software giveaway to the random joe user. don't stress your brain too much on this one. :) thanks again for the great community!

Great idea. It would be really nice if you could just have all the sites on the side bar, like you said. Then each each week move some random site (till you have gone through all of them) to the top in larger bold print, with a small description underneath it, then a solid separator to divide it from the rest of the list. Again, great idea. Love the thought going into this site, this is so what people need.  Donationcoder is gonna be a super cool (oh wait it already is, OK even COOLER) resource for softaholics (and everyone else) once all is said & done.
