Find And Run Robot / Re: Thanks, with questions...
« on: March 23, 2005, 09:04 PM »
I have the excel weirdness on Win2K and WinXP.  The first file opens no problem but if the second excel file opens beneath the first one, FindRun just stays open and I have to Ctrl-Alt-Del to get it away.

two questions:

can you get this to reliably happen, ie if i upload an attempted fix will we be able to test it and know whether i've fixed the problem or is this one of those mysterious bugs that only happens on rare occasions.  a reproducable bug is worth its weight in gold..

second question,
are you running it using the "slower but less memory/resources" mode to run the program? and if the bug is reproducable, can you see if the bug happens with both?

well you are in good company here i suspect if you have tiny little pet peeves about your software, many of us are that way here, though there are differences in what we like and dont like.

TotalCommander is another file manager that some people absolutely swear by, though its not my style.
Directory Opus is very expensive, inappropriately so.
Powerdesk is my other favorite.

updated, added tech support guy forum, and added 2 of my favorite sites for home networking guides.

i think basically what our policy will be is to add sites on a provisional basis and if/when we find other sites that are clearly better than others, we can remove them.  that way we will always be listing a small number of the best sites, understanding that we may need to revise this list as we find out about new sites.

Find And Run Robot / Re: Feature Requests...
« on: March 23, 2005, 12:41 PM »
i'm very interested in anything that could make it more usable.
i think i may try to work on some of the feature requests and bugfixes for find&run tonight.

could you secribe a little more what you were wanting wrt the cursor keys?

currently you can hit escape to stop search, then tab to go to results, then use cursor keys.
or you can just double click an app to launch it
or press the number key corresponding to the app to run, which is how i use mine.

however maybe there is value in letting you just hit the down key during search to both
stop the search and put the cursor in the results window, this would save from having to click escape and tab...
