NeoFinder Coffee Talks USA in June

Coffee Talks

NeoFinder Coffee Talks

Since the initial release of CDFinder 1.0 in 1996, a lot of the really cool stuff in this wonderful software only came to life because someone dared to ask "wouldn't it be nice if NeoFinder could do…"
Feedback was always incredibly important for the development of CDFinder and NeoFinder, and we want to bring that to the next level.

In the NeoFinder Coffee Talk, we will tell you what we are planning for NeoFinder in the future, and what we are working on. You can tell us how you use NeoFinder, what questions you have, and what feedback and suggestions. All while we drink a nice cup of coffee.

And what is best? The NeoFinder Coffee Talks are free. Except for the coffee :-)

But you will gain important insights in our plans and ideas for the future, and helpful tips for your daily operation with NeoFinder.

In June 2019, there are a few open NeoFinder Coffee Talk spots still available in the following cities in the USA:

Neofinder mentioned in Mac Geek Gab podcast

NeoFinder mentioned in MacObservers Geek Cab podcast!

We are happy to report that MacObserver has mentioned the new NeoFinder in its rather geeky podcast Geek Cab.

Here is a link.

They explain why Spotlight is not working with external disks or network shares, and the situations in which NeoFinder comes in very handy!

We are very happy about this nice mentioning, and we hope you enjoy it, too!

CDFinder turns 15!

'twas 15 years ago today!
CDFInder 1.0 Screen Shot!

On a rather cold evening on December 5, 1995, chief developer Norbert M. Doerner wrote the first lines of code for a brand new Macintosh software called CDFinder.

Little did he know that this new pet project of his would turn out to be a highly successful product that would still be actively developed 15 years later.

For those technically interested, the first CDFinder code module was a progress window that showed the progress bar in color, which had to be manually drawn in 1995, because System 7.1 in that day only had a boring back and white progress bar. Yeah, those were the days.

The first version was released in April 1996, and only in Germany. The first english version was 1.1 released in May 1996.

We will definitely celebrate this amazing feat with a nice glass of Champagne tonight.

Thank you very much to all these 49,000 people who have purchased a CDFinder license in the past 15 years, and who helped us make CDFinder such a cool product!

CDFinder and Green IT

Green IT and the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen

Next week, politicians from all over the world meet together to talk. And talk. And talk. And talk even more.

CDFinder team is sick of talking, and started taking action.

Here is what we did so far:

- We switched our electric utility from a huge, coal burning supplier to a small and completely green one, only using solar, wind, and other efficient, and renewable energies.

CDFinder and Video Archiving

The popular video production blog has just published a long article about archiving large amounts of video data created in any video production.
(NAB Preivew: Cache-A LTO-4 Archive Drive for Video Pros)

They are suggesting to use CDFinder:
"As each tape is filled, we mount it on the desktop of the computer and use a program called CDFinder to create a catalog file of all contents of the tape. This usually only takes a few minutes per tape. Once complete, the tape is in the CDFinder database and can be searched from any computer in the office without the tape being loaded. Once we find what we’re looking for, we load the appropriate tape and retrieve the files. It has turned out to be a great system."

We are very happy about this interesting article that shows how CDFinder can be used in video production, and we are even more thrilled, because generating video thumbnails for CDFinder catalogs is a very cool new upcoming feature, and it seems we have hit a nerve with hat already...
