Re: What does “fast search” in xplorer² Ultimate mean

Kilmatead, Some of what I said was correct - not filling an SSD to capacity. So if I, as someone looking for info on a subject (like SSD's), check several sites (and C-NET is one I would normally consider credible) and they tell me the same thing, how would I know that it is not true? How do I know ...

Re: What does “fast search” in xplorer² Ultimate mean

Kilmatead, you make some very good and important to know points about SSD's. Though possibly you come across a tad heavy handed. About half way through you say "to make a long story short". Then you continue on with the long story. I think if the points you made were presented as bullet points they ...

Re: browse compressed archives - now final!

I agree about charity. I make a few donations over the course of a year, but I do NOT want to be put in the uncomfortable position of ignoring a face to face appeal. I do research into the charities I support and insure that at least 60% of the monies taken in actually go to help those the charity p...

Re: browse compressed archives - now final!

I have been using Win 7 for a long time and would be happy to stay with it for as long as it continues to receive updates from MS. Unfortunately, about a 10 months ago some kind of bug slipped into my system. It could have been from one of those MS updates. It causes my IE 11 browser to crash. Now, ...

If we are proposing probable countries which are likely to start a nuclear war, my vote is for the middle east and countries starting with the letter "I".

It is an interesting comment on our advanced society when missing one meal is considered starving.

Re: FolderSize problem

Kilmatead, I am not sure what Nikos would say, but I definitely see you as a thorn in his side, at times. But I assume he knows that your blustering is meant in fun (mostly) and tolerates or even accepts you because, when needed, you are one of the best sources of information and help on all things ...

Re: FolderSize problem

Kilmatead, Yes, it is obvious your rant was in jest - as are portions of my posts. As a person, not unlike yourself (I imagine) who does not suffer fools gladly, I enjoy sparing with someone who can participate at a level that affords me the opportunity to learn new things and forces me to work hard...

Re: FolderSize problem

Kilmatead, Don't be too quick to destroy Carthage - you might be happy there. In that old world, "join us or die" was the battle cry. And it seems to be yours as well. I am not too old to learn something new, so if there are any advantages to two panes I would like to know about them. What can I do ...

Re: FolderSize problem

I use single pane mode. I will (rarely) switch to dual pane if I am doing something exotic. I have no need to see more than one folder at a time. I switch to a folder do stuff in it, switch to a different folder and work there. Dual pane just takes up screen real estate that is better used to see mo...

Re: What am I doing wrong in custom commands?

Kilmatead, I defend my use of the word, "profound", thusly. To paraphrase Clarke's third law (Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic): any sufficiently obscure (to me) literary reference is indistinguishable from profundity. Or, could it be that the writer is using big ...

Re: What am I doing wrong in custom commands?

I am sure that native English speakers also have trouble understanding Kilmatead's literary references - so you are not alone, sanferno. But I take them as a challenge - something to be discovered - and go to Google and start tracking down all the obscure names and phrases. Eventually I (usually) ca...

Re: losing a customer?

It depends on how one defines, "good". What makes a good file manager in MY opinion may not be the same as yours. I want a file manager (actually this applies to ALL software) with excellent customer support. I want a file manager that has features I want and if it doesn't, those features will be ad...
