    Great tool!

    I was wondering if you still had the text file from the demo video handy. If so, maybe you could post it here? Would make a nice self-teaching exercise, without having to pause the video and type things manually (ick).

    Wow, RN4YB is saving me much time each day!

    One thing I miss, though, is being able to use firefox address bar shortcuts such as ctrl-enter, shift-enter, and ctrl-shift-enter (, which don’t seem to work on rubnubified firefoxes.

    “Just installed Rubnub and enjoying it thus far – nice work. One thing I have noticed is that if I try to subscribe to an RSS feed through the address bar in Firefox, the link is not active. When I disable RubNub, the problem goes away. Not sure if this is a known issue, but just wanted to let you know and see if there was a work-around, or if I am doing something wrong.

    Thanks and keep up the good work.


    This is a good find and will be fixed in the next release — for now you can go to (top menu) “Bookmarks” > “Subscribe to this Page”

    Thanks Jonathan!

    Great Product!! Thank you!

    I found a bug…

    Using windows xp pro sp2, with firefox, when creating a new tab, the cursor does not default to the address bar (which is normal and preferred behavior). You have to press alt+d to get the address bar everytime you create a new window (which can be really an annoyance).

    This behavior does not exist in Firefox (which I am using currently).

    Thank you very much, again!

    I am having problems with some of the commands not working. Examples:
    visual control
    mash iphone g-news digg
    xe -amount 100 -from USD -to EUR
    d innovation
    thes rose
    ts cowboy bebop
    am Carl Sagan
    Anyway, those are the ones that I tried. All they did was take me to the google search page.

    Nevermind, I found the problem. I had copied and paste the command lines into the addressbar; and, that is why it didn’t work. However, there was one I did have problems with that did not work. It was:
    xe -amount 100 -from USD -to EUR

    :D OK. Now I need help. I just signed up with “Thinkmap Visual Thesaurus” and I would like to create a search command line with the site. How would I do this? I know where to go to do this, but I don’t know what URL string would apply to do it correctly. Please help.

    OK. I got ‘xe -amount 100 -from USD -to EUR’ to work. I found out three things I was doing wrong. One: I can’t copy and paste it, for some reason it won’t work that way. Two: I can’t hit the go button, if I do it always takes me to the wrong location; so, I have to hit enter. Three: For that ‘command line’ I was hitting the wrong key. I was using the dash character when I should have been using the minus character. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    That is actually a good point, I should be intercepting clicks on the GO button as well :x (actually, I don’t think I have ever clicked that button)

    Thanks for catching that…

    great tool, indeed. However, it has a big drawback - always has to ask a server what does a command mean. Even for google search! It would be great, if it had the option to store some commands on the users computer - probably only the most common used, if there’s too much of them. The extension would then first check in the local index and afterwards it would check on the server.

    Similar functionality is vailable right now, using aliases. However, aliasing every command you want stored locally is quite discouraging…

    Best regards,
