PIMs have been one my fancied applications for at least 10 years now. Over the years I have moved from ECCO to KeyNote and then to Infoselect. I did also try Zoot for a while, and used to love its Zooter and auto-categorizing. Later I moved to a combination of OneNote and CintaNotes. Although I have never been quite happy with OneNote, I have not found a good replacement yet. CintaNotes is good for what it does.

PIMs are probably one of those products that a lot of moderate and power users may use. In their variety, I find this class of applications very similar to ToDo List applications. There are a multitude of products out there, each with its own strengths and quirks. Every few months a lot of new products show up with a lot of promise but quickly languish for lack of development.

Based on your posts and opinions, I tried out RighNote, and it definitely looks good.

Every time I see a new review, I eagerly look up the application, but I almost always come down disappointed. A few features I look for are:
  • Auto categorizing of incoming content – Zoot was wonderful with this
  • Search as you type (live search) – InfoSelect did a great job with search filtering
  • Sync across multiple devices – have an online option.
  • Quick and snappy, with a small footprint
I guess Aram (SuperboyAC) had these listed in his Notetaking Software roundup.

Like many of you, a good PIM that works for me will remain a distant dream, quite like that Indian parable of a mongoose with half a golden coat.

I understand your reluctance to touch clipboard control. I use Clipmate, and the developer doesn't want to implement wildcard matching. Well...

One problem with fSekrit I have found is that it uses a new name everytime it opens. I understand this is is required. However, there are times when it is necessary to inform clipboard viewers that you do NOT want it to capture the clipboard update.

While you're making changes to the code, would you be able to implement this flag too:

General Software Discussion / Re: Which MP3 tagger do you use?

Have you tried TagScanner? Although the macro ability in MP3tag is better, TagScanner stands out for its neat UI.

In our community-run library, we have about 20 computers connected through a LAN. Between them, we have upwards of 150,000 files stored on four computers. These files are of format .doc, .html, .pdf, .txt, .xls and .msg. We've been trying to come up with a search solution that will allow users (who are decently computer savvy) to search all the files, and them access them over the network.

Is it possible to:
  • Run a freeware desktop search on the central server and access the search engine on the local LAN?
  • Index network drives of four computers, and make them searchable?

We tried to implement this using Google Desktop with a web-server called DNKA ( Unfortunately, the latest version of Google desktop that DNKA 0.49 supports is GDS 4.2006.0627; we need to use GDS 5, or later.
