I feel the same way, Jim. Linkman is one of my favorite pieces of software. At $25, it's a great value; at $10, it's a steal!

Locate32, Everything, and SearchGT allow you to search for files by NAME and or extension (filetype). They're all fast, SearchGT impressively so, given that it doesn't index your filenames. Archivarius, X1, etc. index not only filenames but the CONTENTS of those files as well.Thanks, Darwin, but I do understand the difference between a program like Locate32 that will find a filename and one like Archivarius that will do full-text search. As I said in an earlier message, I do both kinds of searches. What I really would like to know is what a program like Archivarius, X1, etc. offers that Copernic does not. Since Copernic is free and these others are not, there must be something compelling that makes them worth the money, but I haven't been able to figure that out from the discussion here. You, of course, are an ideal person to comment on this if you have time, since you've used so many of these programs. (Let me add that I'm not looking for a program that will search my email files, since Mailbag Assistant already does that very well, and few other programs seem able to handle the Mulberry email client.)-Darwin (December 22, 2008, 09:32 AM)
cyberdiva: That is a separate issue altogether. URL's are directly due to either Outertech or your own Settings in Linkman. The Help (.chm extension) file is configured to run in an Internet Explorer window - IOW, the actual window in which you are reading the Help file IS an Internet Explorer pane, and all links within that file will always open in IE. You could copy the link and then put it into the URL bar in Firefox if you really, really need it to open in Firefox.Thanks, Jim, for the clarification. I understand that this is in some ways a separate issue, but it seems to me related. I'm just surprised and a little disappointed that Linkman's Help file is configured to run in an IE window rather than in the window of the user's default browser. Mind you, this isn't an important issue for me--Linkman behaves the way I want in every other respect--but since this topic came up here, I thought I'd mention this other related but not identical instance of Linkman's using IE when the default browser has been set to be Firefox.-J-Mac (December 22, 2008, 01:54 AM)
On first (no configuration found) Linkman start the program tries to determinate your default browser and sets it as default also in the Linkman settings.I've just come upon another place where Linkman (I'm using 7.70 Pro) calls up Internet Explorer even though Firefox 3 is my default browser and the path is listed in the Linkman settings under both "user defined" and "Firefox." In Linkman under Help --> Tutorial, you get a page that contains two different links to the Outertech website. Clicking on them will bring up the site--in Internet Explorer. I poked around in the Settings and saw that Linkman was set to use my "default browser" for going to URLs, but it nonetheless opened IE instead of Firefox. I then changed that to "user defined," but that made no difference. Linkman still opened the links by calling up Internet Explorer. I should note that Linkman always uses Firefox when going to a bookmark that I've put in Linkman; it's just the URLs in Linkman's Help file that are opened with the wrong browser.-Outertech Support (December 19, 2008, 03:33 AM)
[Photoshop] is expensive but you can get it cheaply by registering as student at a recognised institution (it doesn't have to be long term or full time - just an evening class will do at a recognised college - find a photoshop class!. Do check the local conditions at adobe.com by going to the academic shop for your country) and then buy the academic edition which is identical to the commercial product.One caveat: though the academic edition is identical to the commercial product, I think you can't get a comparable academic discount on upgrades. IIRC, you have to buy Photoshop all over again at the full academic price each time you upgrade to a new version. I'm not 100% sure of this, but I think I recall finding this out a year or so ago when Photoshop came out with a new version. I decided not to upgrade.-Carol Haynes (September 13, 2008, 05:36 AM)
Please specify what got installed besides Linkman Free (if you declined everything else). I'll investigate the matter immediately. I've done a test installation just 2 minutes ago and as usual nothing else was installed at all.-Outertech Support (December 18, 2008, 05:26 PM)
I am not disciplined enough to compose long e-mails/posts in an external editor. I follow the same path as Hirudin - I've been burned enough times that I now hit ctrl-A and Ctrl-C pretty often when writing - because I use Clipmate, this provides me with mutliple backups that I can revisit weeks later, if I haven't deleted the contents of the main clipboard by then.As I was reading this thread's messages and considering the pros and cons of using a keylogger (for the same purpose as the original poster), I began to think that I should simply make use of Clipmate, my favorite piece of software. And just as I was thinking this, I came upon your message! So rather than download a keylogger that will record ALL my keystrokes, including backspacing, etc., I'll just try to remember to hit CTL-A CTL-C frequently when I'm typing a lengthy message that I wouldn't want to lose. Thanks, Darwin.-Darwin (May 15, 2007, 07:09 PM)
It will be added in 7.x.I'm delighted to hear this, since I too am a Firefox user.-Outertech Support (September 27, 2008, 07:21 PM)
I wrote again late last week because those issues are still happening, along with a few new ones, but again there is no acknowledgment reply, no actual reply from Outertech Support - nothing.
So as responsive as the developer tried to appear when this review was first written, I believe that was purely for PR reasons, with the review and the DC discount. Three months without any replies at all from their support belies the praise that was heaped on this developer by the review. I dumped Linkman.-J-Mac (August 04, 2008, 11:19 PM)
Yes, Powermarks is still very much alive. Their most recent versions have been for making Powermarks work with Firefox. I downloaded build 387 early this year, probably to make Powermarks compatible with Firefox 2.http://www.kaylon.com/power.html (the best bookmark manager I know)Latest download is dated 12/02/2002, is it still alive?-cyberdiva (August 31, 2007, 05:49 PM)-andrew_x (September 01, 2007, 01:40 AM)
I wish the topic were "Top 3 programs you use Plus your Email client & Browser..."I agree. My top three programs are-Renegade (August 09, 2007, 06:53 PM)
It is such a pity there aren't any/many? good software review sites, other than DC of course.One software review site that I've read for several years is the Neat Net Tricks Software Reviews at http://www.neatnettr...com/SoftwareReviews/. They have a panel of reviewers; usually between 4 and 6 people review a given piece of software. Each describes his/her experience with it, what the strengths and weaknesses are, etc. By having several people reviewing the same software program, you get a better sense than just one person's views and prejudices. I've bought several programs based on enthusiastic reviews from NNT, and I've never been sorry.-nevf (August 18, 2007, 05:29 PM)
