I’m still standing

Although I haven’t posted any news in a while, I just wanted to post a quick update.  I have been doing some outside work the past few months, and it is now complete.  For reasons that I’m sure you all can understand, these outside projects must take priority over my shareware/freeware development.  Above all, I have to pay the bills.

I will be posting Speedy Shopper 2.0 ASAP, as well as continuing work on 7stacks in my spare time.  I am also going to be working on some iPhone/Android apps (which is where the future is, let’s be honest).

One quick note about Popup Calendar.  A recent screwup by me caused an old version of Popup Calendar (3.5) to be posted on the site, instead of the current version (3.53).  If you download Popup Calendar, you will now get the new version.  Sorry about the confusion.

  1. Yeah! you are alive!!!

    I love 7stack, only 1 suggestion Mini filter for stacks, example show only 10 last elements or only folders or only files 😀

    I’m excited about 7 Stack. Hope you continue to work on it, Thanks

  3. Well, I just have to confirm all those great experiences described by so much users. It´s a wonderfull tool – saves a lot of time, makes Windows 7 definitely much easier to handle and 7-Stacks is very easy to configure.

    Thanks for providing 7-Stacks! I´m really looking forward for any updates.


  4. I’m sure this is the wrong place to report this but…

    I run Win7 Enterprise on 2 machines and all of a sudden clicking my stack just cursor spins for a minute then nothing.

    It took me a while to pinpoint the issue but it appears to be Google’s Chrome browser.

    If it’s running I can’t get my stacks to launch but if I close it I can. Hopefully your next version can address this issue if I’m not the only one seeing it….

      I use the dev version of Chrome, and I noticed this same problem between Chrome and 7stacks a few months ago. After looking, I discovered the problem was w/ Chrome, not 7stacks. Eventually, Google fixed it in the dev channel. But because of the way Chrome works, this problem worked its way down to the beta channel, and eventually the normal channels, which is why so many people are starting to see it.

      Eventually, the problem will go away in a month or so if you stay as is. You could also upgrade to Chrome dev (or beta), where the issue is fixed. I use Chrome dev as my main browser, and it works great.

      • It’s not necessarily true that it was fixed in the dev channel. I just installed 7stacks a few hours ago after finding it and I have everything set up quite nicely. Unfortunately, I’m having the same Chrome-caused issue, and I’m using the latest dev release (v11.0.696.16 dev as of posting this).

        I really like 7stacks and am glad to hear the developer is still alive 🙂 I’m looking forward to a 2011-released version.

  5. Looking forward to another release. I love the application but it has stopped working on my Windows 7 machine (32-bit). When I click a stack on my task bar, it spins for a moment and then stops. It doesn’t pop up anymore.
