General Software Discussion / Re: Would you pay for WinZip?
« on: September 19, 2005, 11:28 AM »
I really appreciate the model and the motivation...  I've lived in a different, parallel economy for the last ten years, working with the idea that we take what we need and give what we can - that's why I'm excited by donationcoder.  I have been enthusiastically recommending it to friends since I discovered the site, both for what it contains (in the sense of great software and reviews), and for what it stands for (and here I mean a break from the old ways, a new way of doing business).  And also: I've been reading various forums for the last few months, after staying clear of them for the first 11 years of my surfing the internet - well, it only became surfing when I got broadband a few months back, before then it was just paddling - and I must say I feel there's something different about dc, and I think that does have to do with a different ethos, a different way of doing things.  Perhaps it's a sentimental idea, but I get much more of a feeling of a circle of friends, if only in possibility - that's something it could become, in a way I don't see happening on any of the other forums I'm reading.

Getting a little personal: I'm a Buddhist, and have lived and worked within a Buddhist community for the last ten years, and I must say that it is the economic model of donationcoder that has attracted me even more than the topnotch software and excellent reviews.  I'm fascinated by the idea of donationcoder, which I consider a reflection of the Buddhist precept of dana or generosity.

That sounds great!  Looking forward to seeing this developed further...  Has there been a dc review of desktop search tools?  I'll take a look at the list.

Are you aware of Getchoo?  It's at http://alilm.needlemen.com/drupal/, and both nice-looking and quick - it accesses the GDS database slightly differently to GDS, I think, though I can't exactly remember what the difference is.  It's had quite a lot of discussion over at aqua-soft.org.  I would love to see FARR doing something like that - and I'm one of the people who would like it to be skinnable too, or at least to respond to WindowBlinds skinning.

I am ignorant - please forgive me if this is a stupid question: can FARR search for text inside files in the way other desktop search programs can?  I use Google Desktop, mainly in my work in a charity, where I find it very useful and I like it, but it really bothers me that it clashes with NOD32, and I'm concerned about the various privacy issues that have been raised around it.  If I could use FARR in its place, I would be a happy man...
