Important Information 5/18/2004 9:20:09 AM
Recently, I have been receiving a lot of emails asking how to remove a search program that was installed on their computers.

If the program does not look like the picture below, then it is not the program I wrote and I don't know how to uninstall it.

My program, Search Bar, as I have written it and as it is available for download from this website, requires you to confirm the installation before it begins.

Moving... 8/24/2003 8:42:59 PM
I'm gonna be out of touch for a little while, but hopefully not too long.

I just moved into a new house this weekend but I don't have any kind of Internet access and probably won't for at least a week.

That means I probably won't be able to answer any questions or respond to any emails until I get connected again.

As a side note, I should be releasing Search Bar Pro a couple weeks after I get net access. It is pretty much done, I just have to test everything (it takes quite a bit of time to test every feature on 5 or so operating systems) and finish writing the documentation (which will be on this website after release).

Search Bar Pro Nearing Completion 7/15/2003 9:46:15 PM
That's right!

Now what does that mean?

It means I'm no longer adding new features, and I've stomped out all the major and not so major bugs. I am now working on the little things, making sure dialogs are easy to understand, making sure each and every feature works correctly.

I will release a private beta for the beta testers to use. If they don't find any bugs, then I will decide if it's the final version or if I want to release a public beta (which will expire after a certain period of time).

You're probably asking when the final version will be ready for download. The answer is I'm not sure, hopefully within a month or two. It will depend on how many (if any) bugs are found, things I need to change because they work but don't work as you would expect, and how much free time I have.

Wanted: Beta Testers 3/3/2003 4:12:24 AM
I've gotten some of the major bugs worked out in the first beta of Search Bar Pro.

Now, I'm looking to start a wider beta test. I don't want people who are interested in just getting their hands on latest version. I'm looking for people who really want to help, and give as much feedback as they can. This means a tester will have to try everything, and tell me what doesn't work or what could be improved.

For those who are interested, make a post in the forum with the following info:
  • Level of experience with computers

  • System Specs (if you will be testing on more than 1 computer, list for all)
    • Operating System
    • Processor
    • RAM
    • Web browsers installed
You may be wondering, what do the beta testers get out of it? Well, for starters, the knowledge that they helped Search Bar Pro become the best it can be. As a thank you for any beta tester, I will add your name to the credits in the final version, as well as on this website. I may provide other perks later on, but that depends on some things I about which haven't made a final decision.

Search Bar Pro Beta 2/11/2003 1:00:10 AM
I have started a limited beta test of Search Bar Pro. I have already chosen the participants for this beta. Once I get most of the bugs worked out, I will most likely start another beta test and invite others to help out. I would say that Search Bar Pro is 90% complete, but I don't have an exact release date in mind. It all depends on how much free time I have, how many bugs are found and how difficult they are to fix.

As always, I'll try to make as many people happy with this version. But as is always the case with software, some just won't like it. Of course that doesn't mean I'll stop trying :-)
