ReplyButler 1.32: Hotkeys + Search engine for Text modules

Monday, December 31st, 2007

ReplyButler 1.32 is finally out now.

As announced, the new version includes some great new features: You can assign hotkeys to text modules, text module folders and to all important system functions (like the context dialog).

And you now have a search dialog. Don’t remember where you put the text? Simply run the search dialog from the context menu, type one or more words and you’ll find your boilerplate.

OT: Exchanging the HDD in a P7010 Lifebook

Saturday, December 29th, 2007

Yeah, off-topic, I know. But I like my Lifebook and changed the hard disk today and had a hard time finding a how-to for this. Fujitsu-Siemens doesn’t bother to tell you.

So here’s how to.

Before you start:

  • Make a backup
  • Get some non-magnetized screwdrivers
  • Don’t blame me if something goes wrong. This goes without any warrenties. 😉

Step1: Remove the battery and press the power button for a few seconds to remove any remaining energy.

Step2: Turn the Laptop around and remove the 3 screws at the front.

Step3:Turn the notebook around again and carefully pry open the wrist-rest. Don’t pull it away too strong, the touch-pad is still connected with some cables!

Step4: You can see the harddisk at the front right. It’s only held by the ATA cable. Carefully pull it out and exchange the disk. Don’t damage the HD pins, or you won’t be able to revert back in case of problems.

That’s it. Oh by the way: Both Easy2Sync for Files and Easy2Sync for Outlook have “Copy” modes that can be used for a backup. (Not so off-topic after all 😉

GoogleEarthTweaker 1.08

Thursday, December 20th, 2007

A new version of my Freeware tool to convert GPX files to GoogleEarth KML files (and make the icons look nicer and filter your find and and and) has just gone online.


The new release simply fixes a bug that could happen with coordinates that have only zeros after the degree sign.

You can find GoogleEarthTweaker on the Download page.

Preview: Hotkeys and boilerplates

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

Next release of our text module software will include a nifty new feature, requested by several customers. Hotkeys will be added to the next release of ReplyButler. They’ll not only allow you to call specialized dialogs like the options, the context or the addressing menu. (As it can be seen in the screenshot.)

But they’ll also be available as shortcut to any boilerplate or boilerplate folder that you have in your text collection and that you often use to answer your support e-mails. If you don’t insert a text in the text module dialog, you can still use the shortcut to change the subject line to a predefined subject or add attachments to the e-mail.

If you already want to give the current version a try have a look at the replybutler page.

32GB USB Stick! :-O

Friday, December 14th, 2007

As Golem notes Buffalo is going to sell a USB stick with the tiny capacity of 32 GB. (If you want to test your japanese knowledge, the original page is here. 😉

Being always fascinated by how much data you can store on small media (not only for my Outlook and File Sync programs) I couldn’t pass on this note. 32 Gig would be enough to store about 24 days of music (at 128 kbit/s). Or (talking about e-mails again) 16 full-blown PST-files (if you still working with the old Outlook format with the size limit ;-).

Easy2Sync for Outlook 1.26: Sync, Merge, Move

Sunday, December 9th, 2007

The new release has 3 major changes:

  • It’s faster
  • It supports moving e-mails
  • It supports merging folder

Copy and merge Outlook

In the new few blogs I’ll show you the details about these new task types, what you can do with them and how to handle them.

To get an idea, what Easy2Sync is all about please try the Freeware Edition.

Sync @ 320 GB

Tuesday, December 4th, 2007

Synchronizing huge amounts of data at remote locations can be difficult. VPN or web services aren’t exactly know for their speed, so ou might want to use a USB hard disk to synchronize and then move it to the second location for another sync. Western Digital is offering a 320 GB hard disk which should be enough for HUGE amounts of data (for file or Outlook sync).

Nice detail: The hard disk gets its power from the USB cable, so you won’t need an extra power connection.

Details and a foto are available on

Even a synchronization with an FTP server is supported by the wizard.

Here’s the sync task type page:
