I started to use PKZIP a very long time ago then went to WinZip due to their Windows Interface and I have been very pleased for a very long time with WinZip until I recently hit the issue with Proxo. I have tried 7-Zip some time ago but I did not like the interface so I dropped it. I have not tried ZipGenius -- I may look at it later.

I have yet to need RAR -- nor do I waste my time with any of the UNIX formats after I decided that my 10 year investment in UNIX was a complete waste --- I am solidly sold on MS Windows and have zero regrets. IMO UNIX [all 37+ verities] have done nothing but cost us trillions upon trillions of dollars in techno BS. Smile!

IMO the only people who love UNIX/Linux and whatever else nix are predatory dinosaurs --- very well FED predatory dinosaurs to the point of being obese. Smile!

dude, I simply could not agree with you more... Big Teeth
very well stated...

ah, distinctly i remember
it was in the bleak december
(guess that would be a cross between e.e. cummings and edgar allan poe)...

we, the "engineering" community, were once *force-fed* UNIX-based "proprietary systems" - oh where, oh where have those little 'dogs' gone? good riddance, I say...

FYI - - I was implementing sidki's latest * WIP *
and one of the WIP changes caused my Proxo to stop filtering just like before.

In sidki_2006-03-05.ptron what I did was simple do a search/replace all the stuff found in the WIP set ... now all I need to do is identify which WIP entry caused my Proxo to fail ? or my diligence in doing a search and replace may not have been error free [?].

In the meantime I restored a backup of sidki's set and my Proxo returned to normal filtering.

Anyone implement all the changes reflected in the March 18 2006 WIP?

I have...
With no problems whatsoever...

What the heck are you doing?
Nobody else on the face of the Proxo Planet can seem to replicate your problem...

Good to know. Thanks.

So apparently I must have made a mistake in my copy/search/replace process. I will go over that again but this time I'll just implement one WIP change at a time ? incrementally - and see what happens.

OK, I found out what my issue was with the WIP -- and yes I can confirm that I did make a mistake in my copy/past/search/replace process. Eek
