    Pop-up tool tips - kind of

    A few years ago I had a nifty little program that permitted me to make personal notes on files (unopened) that would pop-up I think on a mouse over (active X? ) but I might have been in the right click menu. Anyway, the notes resembled tool tips or the text representation on a graphic on the net. This was really a good thing.

    Now, when I am zipping folders for storage I would like to be able to have a quick list of what is in that zip so, at a later date, I can more quickly find what I am looking for. And I can not find that nifty little program any more.

    To put it in a time context for you guys, I think I picked it up around the time I picked up "tree-size" and "send to anywhere" - and they were all new then (I think).

    Does anyone know what I am talking about and have it or be able to direct me to where I can retrieve it?

    We are currently running Windows 2000 Pro.

    TIA for any help you can give me,

    Hi
    You can do the action you want using the .pdf extension. Pop over to my site, click the index button and get Instant Information. The first part of this explains.

    In addition to MerC's try

    His site has the "tree" and "send to" things as well as lots of other interesting things. Ranks right up there with Merc's site. Both great fun sites.

    I just tried again. No luck. I have never had any problems accessing any other site before (that others have been able to access). I will try again later and if I am not successful I will contact my ISP, Cablevision's Optimum Online and see what's up.

    I'm wearing a jersey too, and I can get in OK.
    So it's either your ISP or your dress code.

    Hi
    Sorry to hear of your connection problems. Nothing wrong with the link as far as I can tell, nor with site access. There were 24 hits since 10.00h GMT. Sometimes during busy periods I've known it to time-out but only on occasion. Try it at a quieter time, and let me know if you still don't connect.

    Re: Pop-up tool tips - kind of

    Well I finally got in. <img src=/S/bravo.gif border=0 alt=bravo width=16 height=30>

    But I had to do it via the backdoor. I called my ISP and the guy I spoke to first had trouble also. He finally got through after about 60 secs. wait. Then he gave me the numerical address to see if I could access that. No luck. Got the same message.
    Then the ISP guy asked me to try http://www.mercury.org.uk/merfree.htm. It was slow - really slow, but I finally got there.
    So I figured, well, now let me try again. So I closed out my browser and reloaded it with the http://www.mercury.org.uk/ address. Same "page can not be displayed". The ISP guy and I were both dismayed (me more than he as I wanted to get to this site!).

    Then, I figured, let me be weird (many who know me will tell you that is not a difficult thing for me to do - some might even say it is my normal state of being - but I guess that belongs in scuttlebutt). So I went to http://www.mercury.org.uk/merfree.htm and got it. I then used the "UP" icon on my Google toolbar and I got it!!! Hooray. I then closed the browser, reopened it and tried again. No luck. I can only seem to get into it by backing up (Hey - no comments - I'm a shrink!) <img src=/S/nuts.gif border=0 alt=nuts width=15 height=15>

    So, I'm in. But via Google's back door. Whether Optimum Online (my ISP) cares at all is up for debate. But now I can go there from here. It is just that I have to do it _ss backwards. <img src=/S/moon.gif border=0 alt=moon width=15 height=15>

    Thanks for the site. I will have fun seeing all that is there. (And I love these smilie things. I need them tonight - I just got back from a lecture on
    Repetition and Creation: The Analytical Act and Transmission in Psychoanalysis <img src=/S/brainwash.gif border=0 alt=brainwash width=15 height=15>
    and I need to be silly.

    Best,

    Hi
    Sorry again, but it must be at your end, I'm afraid. Counter read 10696 this am, which is more than 20 up on last night. I had no difficulty myself getting there from 3 different routes.
    What browser are you using? My site is optimised for IE 5 or above at 1024x768.

    Re: Pop-up tool tips - kind of

    I figured it was on my end. <img src=/S/sigh.gif border=0 alt=sigh width=15 height=15>

    I am on with a cable modem (currently running at 1.1 megabits per second as per http://bandwidthplace.com/speedtest/results.html) and am using IE 6.0 with my resolution set at 1024x76 on a 2.5 year old Pentium III 650 mhz running Win98 SE with 256 K RAM and a 64 MG ATI Rage Fury MAXX video card.

    I have had no problems with any other site I have tried, but that doesn't mean, as you know, that the problem is NOT with me. Chances are it is. And now, at least I know how to get in.

    The only other thing I thought it might be was ZoneAlarmPro (version 2.6.231) as the ISP guy commented that I was using a firewall (I guess he couldn't ping me or whatever). But I tried with that turned off (and rebooted with it disabled) and still no luck.

    So I am pretty sure it is my ISP, Optimum Online.

    BTW - Thanks for the site. There are lots of neat things there.
    Best,
