am read lonk is a web-page eady to accessand offers good suggestions.Archives can be found , the latest news and what's upcomingA good page !
What I did was copy all of my links to an e-mail,then I e-mailed myself.I had to use NETZERO to save as an MHT file or you might try e-mail archive.I have a saved MHT file in my memory stick that when opened displays all of my links.I just click the line and I'm there.(note:the newest problem in my computer is I try to move a page and it maximizes,so in Control Panel>Printers and Other Hardware>Mouse>I slowed down the double click time to its slowest>Apply>OK.)
Da ... is there anything that can clean out my Netscape htm page with over 2000 links? Ya ya ... I'm still in the dark ages but I'm not losing hair over that junk called IE!
No the problem is that in the original screenshot it shows AM-Deadlink 2.8.1 freeware then Copyright@2000-2007 by Martin Aignesberger "WWW.AIGNES.COM" then Ok Now Most people that see this See that there is a URL listed and they can't figure out where to download it from? Well i shouldn't say this becuase I'm no expert to all the techs that maybe some of these people are BUT get a clue IT'S right there!
What if you love some of those old favorites? You could search the WaybackMachine.org to find old versions of them. For convenience, you can also put their bookmarklet link on your links bar, to automatically search waybackmachine after browsing to a dead page. Look on waybackmachine.org homepage for the bookmarklet.
I found it by googling AM-deadlink, now to try it. BUT-- I now use google/ig to have all my favourites online as I work from so many computers.
But it's not new to me. I'd have to check, but I think I have an 0.9 release on an old CD-R somewhere. It's one of the handiest little bookmark utilities I have ever found.
if you want portable favorites, spurl.net is great-- it even has a great integrated side-bar feature. there are many other free portable bookmarks products-- even google is getting in on the game. using email to make your favorites portable is unwieldy and inflexible.
How many times do you 1. Get a newsletter 2. See an interesting piece of software 3. Click the link 4. Read and decide to go for it ........and..... IT'S NOT THERE! How dumb is that? Here's the latest newsletter in case you want to waste your time! Very disappointing.
Just did a basic search for AM-DeadLink and found the site. Here it is. http://aignes.com/deadlink.htm
The link itself is dead. UGH!!! Try: http://aignes.com/deadlink.htm
Everyone, I apologize for the confusion and the bad link. When I last checked the download link, it worked. At some point between now and then, the link became unavailable. I have updated the gallery with a link to Martin Aignesberger?s Web site (http://aignes.com/deadlink.htm)?the creator of AM-DeadLink. You can download the software there. Many thanks to the TechRepblic members who have already posted the link within this discussion. Again, I apologize for the confusion and assure you I am taking steps to prevent this from happening in the future.
here is the site for download http://www.aignes.com/deadlink.htm
Just downloaded it from this link from the post above. Whats the problem??? http://aignes.com/deadlink.htm
Yes frustrating, but their website URL is in the icon. Just go to http://www.aignes.com/deadlink.htm and download it!
...that many people, it seems, cannot think around a simple problem. So many people cannot think to type "AIM Deadlink" in a web search tool? Incredible! -wra
Thanks for the link, Gareth. Maybe you'd like to work for ZDNet - they'd be sure to pay premium rates for someone who can actually deliver a working link ;-)
