I paid for the file on Sunday evening, and the email came to me Monday afternoon, my time. I was starting to worry because it got caught in Gmail's spam filter, but all is well. I will do a review this weekend after I get to play with it a bit more, but it is a very clever use of the the features available in Outlook. Seems promising so far.I have just ordered Outlook project management from http://www.outlookproject.com/

Interesting to hear if you ever receive this file! The site has not been updated for two years, and their forum has been closed for at least half a year. But the extension sure sounds ideal for the purpose in question.-Curt (October 21, 2007, 05:38 PM)
This Extension to Microsoft Outlook will provide you with the tools needed to enable you to effectively manage a project.Seems a lot to promise for a whopping $9.99. This is something they email to you, no test version available as yet, so I will just test it for all of us and let you know how it goes.
The solution encompasses out-of-the-box tools and processes that enable you to:
* Break a complex project into manageable sub-projects
* Assign responsibility/ownership of project components
* Gain real-time project visibility into resources, processes, status
* Focus on highest-priority items and ensure resources are allocated appropriately
* Develop and complete a project plan
Your projects can be as simple or complex as you prefer. It can be projects with only 1 participant, or with a group of people taking part.
Effective project management requires more than just good project managers; you also need effective processes. This Extension will integrate your project management with your Outlook features, giving you a familiar interface, and solid contact management.
So, when can we get a look at helpmaker 8.0? I'll bet you could probably find some eager beta testers in this community.
vizacc writes the free software HelpMaker.
The version in Development is HelpMaker version 8.0, which has similar features to GemX DoOrganizer.-vizacc (October 15, 2007, 02:29 PM)
Thanks for the responses.I have been "testing" the pre-release for some time now, and I have found it to be rock solid, and getting more capable all the time. Have no fear, I can recommend this software absolutely.
To me, an alpha version means slow, buggy and prone to crash your computer with amazing regularity. Usually you see alpha releases accompanied by major warnings about possible catastrophic consequences if you are stupid enough to run it without completely backing up your computer first.
This leaves me still conflicted but I guess I will try it.

brilliant.. maybe you could site where it original came from though, to give credit and so i could give credit when i blog it.Actually, my wife emailed it to me. She thinks it might have come from joke of the day.-mouser (September 17, 2007, 03:27 PM)
it is a BASIC right to copy/modify/run software as you wish, because software is NOT property, software = ideas and creativity, and limiting ideas and creativity with ownership is always a bad idea. That is the ethical truth.Sorry, but your basic premise is not correct. Software is not just the idea, it is also the work and talent to make that idea work. Talent should always be rewarded. Paying people for the software that results from ideas and creativity does not stifle that creativity, working at mcDonalds does.
Paying for software should be done out of sympathy, goodwill, brotherhood with the developer, not because you have to, just to have the 'privilege' to use the software.-Gothi[c] (May 26, 2007, 03:09 AM)
This seems like a really good idea. I am currently creating batch files and including them in the alias to allow me to launch a single program or the whole lot, but a switch would be easier and faster.
If people are interested i could add a flag to each alias to let you say that these should all launch as a group by default.-mouser (April 17, 2007, 01:08 PM)
Sounds extremely interesting, thomtowolf!Actually, it ran in dos 6.22, which I still have, and can emulate. The trouble is that I was young and foolish, and ran from my original disks, which were fatally stricken with a virus The company stopped supporting it so I was never able to replace it.
What OS was Wordbech for?
No dice running it in dos mode (emmulation)?-urlwolf (March 05, 2007, 01:34 PM)
