tag2find goes around the world

Saturday, December 30th, 2006

marc.gifFirst of all, thank you all for your interest in tag2find.
Since the article on Techcrunch tag2find is going around the world. We have visits from Honolulu to Wellington in New Zealand and from Umea Sweden to Falkland Islands. We are overwhelmed about your reactions.

Today, I received a message that we are even on the hotlist at del.icio.us.

Presently, tag2find is a test version in a technical preview stage. Please mind that some issues are not fixed and we hope to get a lot of feedback to improve tag2find for you. Next week, there will be an update and all requested invitations will receive an email with a password to download tag2find. Therefore, we ask you for your patience.

How is work in the tag2find team?

Thursday, December 28th, 2006

yanella.pngI am the newest member of the tag2find team the only girl and also the only who doesn’t speak a word of German. I have to tell that all of them are so friendly with me but sometimes it is very difficult understanding people who talk your same language, imagine in a foreign language!!

Since now we all know that every Monday is a very “special day�?, the only thing is I still don’t know the real reason for their attitudes but it is very funny and the most important is that you don’t need to understand what they are saying because it is almost impossible, you will only listen “Oh, Blah, Uy, Nee,�? or things like that without meaning for the others but with a lot of meaning for who is talking! So in the tag2find team you are allowed to express yourself anytime if your work is not going in a good way or maybe it is going wonderful!

Here there aren’t any rules regarding how you must dress, I know that in Austria the people usually don’t wear shoes in their houses, but also in the office? Yes, you can walk around the office with your socks and it doesn’t matter because we are in tag2find!

I think they to like play some sports in their free time but here in the office the official sport is the basketball. Why do you need to stand up to put your bottle of soda in the wastebasket? No, you just need to throw it in the basket and this way you can practice your technique but only when the bottle misses you must stand up and put it inside.
You can know the personality of each person in the office just by listening to the ring tones of their mobile phones, we have all the tastes from sheeps to crickets passing for whistle and the more polite way “you have a call�?.

I hope the rest of my stay in Austria and more specifically here – working in tag2find- I can learn some German and in this way I can participate in the jokes that they have in the office because my German level is so basic that until now I can just say every morning “Morgen�? (morning) when I arrive and when I leave “bis Morgen�? (until tomorrow ) so wish me luck ….but I have something in my favour the good humour doesn’t have a language, it is universal!

It’s done – Impression

Here is a little impression of our coding session:

work is done – sleep well 😉

It’s done! – v0.8.0.3 is out!

Thursday, December 21st, 2006

We finally did it! After literally working almost 24/7 the last several weeks and now after a programming marathon of around 42 hours nonstop, we are proud to announce the release of version 0.8.0.3, our first “technical preview” version of tag2find. This is our X-mas present to our community and ourselves. tag2find 0.8.0.3 is available for download by all approved members of the “technical preview” program. If you are not an approved member yet, don’t hesitate, register now, we are still searching testers.

As 0.8.0.3 is our first release available to our members, let me give you a short introduction what you are about to get. This release offers you:

  • Full tagging of files on local volumes that are formated using the NTFS volume, including detection of renames, copies, etc.,
  • integration with Windows Explorer & Internet Explorer,
  • an decent Floating TagBox that is always handy available on your desktop if you want to search or tag,
  • image preview,
  • an embedded Windows Media Player for playing your music and videos,
  • your own personal TagCloud,
  • and lots of powerful tools to easily manipulate your tags,
  • and even more

If that got you interested (and I’m quite sure it did), and you want to be able to get the well known power of tagging from the web right to your desktop, I recommend you taking a look at our features and the tour.

Please keep in mind, this is the first release of the “technical preview” release. We worked really hard to deliver a stable and very useful first beta version, but we need your help to sort things out. Please join us in our forum or write us comments here, as soon as you have experience with our product.

So, that’s all for now. Most of the developers will now start their well-earned X-mas Holidays, so please be gentle and allow some days response time to requests and answers. The team will be back in full strength on January 3rd, 2007. And I hope to read some nice comments here 😉

Wish you all a nice X-mas and a Happy New Year & a lot of fun tagging your digital world with tag2find. I’m off of the office now 😉
