0.1 (Nov 22, 2006)
Was there something wrong with the standard Microsoft UI controls that compelled you to draw your own?
It's pretty obvious who's look better - maybe you should reconsider and just use standard controls?
1.5.1 Beta (Jul 2, 2004)
This is the best feed reader I have come across on Windows so far! It's fast, stable, packed with good features and wrapped in a nicely executed interface. The only downsides are memory usage (the side effect of being a .NET app) and some occasional hickups I had, but those are mostly forgiven once you start using it. Definately worth a try.
4.0 Beta 1 (Jul 4, 2002)
Is anyone else disappointed by the lack of new features in this release? Seems more like a 3.5 than a 4.0. They certainly haven't justified asking an upgrade price for this version (existing 3.x users must upgrade to a new 4.x license).
For one, why can't we have a tabbed interface ala. Netcaptor and Opera? I have lots of connections to lots of machines open all the time, and while the Activator helps manage these somewhat, a tabbed interface make it so much simpler to manage all of these connections (IMHO).
Also, how about multi-host control? Like being able to type in one window and having the commands sent to multiple different hosts at the same time. Extremely powerful for managing clusters of servers. AFAIK, only Sun's cluster management software does this at the moment. Not rocket science to implement either...
Otherwise, this is still the best terminal program on the planet. I don't think i'm missing out on much by sticking with 3.4 for the time being though...
4.0 Beta 1 (Sep 29, 2005 - 9:58 PM)
Perhaps if other legitimate online stores offered a) decent bitrates and b) DRM-free downloads, we wouldn't need AllofMP3.com.
The fact is that music will ALWAYS exist DRM-free. As long as they sell CDs, you will be able to buy DRM-free music. If you can buy it DRM-free from the store, why the hell can't you buy it DRM-free online?
To me, its indicative of the paranoia that is so prevalent in the music industry that has caused this total paralysis of innovation to meet the P2P networks head-on.
Why is it noone in the music biz seems to notice how ridiculous this situation is?
4.0 Beta 1 (Sep 29, 2005 - 9:53 PM)
Just be prepared to pony up $50USD (and US credit card holders only) for the privilage. There are (as far as I can see) no trials, free periods or free credit. You can't even see their collection and you certainly can't hear any of the content until you come up with the cash.
Pretty lame for an expensive new service that is trying to differentiate itself in a crowded field. Perhaps the difference really isn't all that?
4.0 Beta 1 (Nov 18, 2004 - 6:21 AM)
I presume that this will all eventually boil down to one person or perhaps a group of people working on the project. It might be that they were just lazy and found it easier to pirate the software than go through the hoops of getting signoff to purchase it...
4.0 Beta 1 (Dec 19, 2000 - 7:37 PM)
While this sounds like a much needed improvement in the standard, It wouldn't be much of a stretch for manufacturers to produce more compact IDE cables right now. There are guides on the net showing you how to separate the individual strands in the ribbon, and then cable-tie them together, making them alot thinner and MUCH easier to stuff out of the way. Come on hardware manufacturers, here's a product differentiator that is pretty simple to make and will earn you lots of cred from system builders and hardware enthusiasts.
4.0 Beta 1 (Oct 26, 2000 - 9:04 AM)
Agree Leech has had these "simulataneous transfer" features for ages, but I find leech buggy and since the middle of last year, unsupported (AFAIK there have been no updates since then). On the other hand, CuteFTP 4.0 is rock solid, works perfectly with every FTP server i've ever connected to, and since 4.0, also has a decent user interface. Add the cool multiple download stuff that LeechFTP has and it's the undisputed king baby. Bring it on!
