1-0 out of 5 stars How was a resume ever created with this!
Out of the box it looks impressive. The graphical front end when you first run it, gives you a sense of confidence that you are indeed working with the number one resume writing product in the world. I deligently set off through the seemingly easy-to-use screens putting in my information. The first signs of trouble were when I tried to go into the format changing screens. These were garbled, illegible and I could only close them in order to continue. Thinking I might have been doing something wrong, I pressed on with the task of keying in my resume details. When I got to the final congratulations screen and tried to preview the results of my labor, I found that it had all been in vain. Previewing my resume showed whole sentences cut off, parts of the screen jambled, sections missing, text uneditable in what are suppose to be editing screens and formating inconsistent. Basically, what would be printed out or converted to MS Word would be rendered useless as a resume. At this point, and after numerous attempts at reinstalling, applying patches and even upgrading, I find it difficult to believe that a coherent and useful resume has EVER been produced using this package. This leads me to conclude that it is nothing more than a hyped up piece of garbage - Kudus to the marketing team - the purchase of which constitutes an utter and complete waste of time and money.

2-0 out of 5 stars It could be 5 stars except...
I just spent 2 hours making my resume. I tried to transfer it into word because I have to email it along with another word fille to our HR department. Well, now it is a total mess.

This program is fine if you are going to print out resumes directly from the program. Horrible for emailing and HTML.

1-0 out of 5 stars At first glance, it's nice, but BEWARE of customer service
I bought this product for my husband after he was laid off from his job. I thought it was a good idea to update his
resume to something fresh and eyecatching.

The outside of the box boasted it's endorsements by several professional people and companies,as well as the fact that is the "#1 BEST SELLER". It also has the words on the box NEW VERSION 10 DELUXE, so this leads one to believe that it's the newest version available.

The examples are very professional looking. Included in the software is not only resume templates, but cover letter templates, virtual interview,salary finder, career finder, job finder and RESUME CASTER, which is supposed to send out your resume to virtually thousands of perspective employers via the world wide web... Upon the installation of the CD Rom, everything appeared to be going well. It's a very user friendly format, and I quickly was able to figure out just how to start the resume making process. Once finished, it will only print in the format you make, it will not transfer in same format for emailing or attaching to email. Had to start from scratch in MSWord. And WHAT on earth is DELUXE about this software? The frustration you get from using it???

I wanted to utilize RESUME CASTER...that's when I got a message that read, "UPGRADE STRONGLY RECOMMENDED". It would not allow me to do anything else with it. I emailed the company and the response I got 11 days later (which, upon emailing the company, the "canned" reply email said that someone would get back to me within 2 business days) stated that I had to send in for an upgrade which was free, however, I must send in a fee of $6.00 for shipping and handling.

I refuse to send in for an upgrade to a software program I just purchased 12 days ago, I find this unacceptable. Most reputable companies will let you download patches or upgrades to their software for free, but with this company, it's not an option.

I will use the resumemaker for making resumes and cover letters,then go to MSWORD to input them myself, because they do not transfer at all in the same format to word through the software. I will not get the "full use" of the resumecaster, and just spread the word to keep looking when anyone is looking for a good resume software. There are good ones out there made by reputable companies that will stand behind their work and their name to please the customer. This is not a company like that, they want to pretend they are "giving" the updates away, yet charge the customer $6.00 for shipping when they could easily get by with downloading upgrades for free when you have purchased their software.

4-0 out of 5 stars Really nice!
The program is really nice. It makes it pretty easy to put together a nice resume and do a web publications and searches. I like everything and I didn't give 5 stars just because I installed this program on one computer, it was crashing right when I was trying to save it. I installed it on to the other computer and ran into the same problem. It's hard to imagine having to bad computers so I do suspect this program has some technical problems. But if you don't foget clicking "Save" time to time, you should be ok. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Overuses CPU
It's a great program with a lot of flexibility but it overtaxes the CPU. After loading the program, try CTRL-ALT-DEL. You'll find it's utilizing most of the CPU. It overheats the CPU if you have more than a program or two running. When I use the program, I have to load it, look up or do what I want and then close it or I get warning messages about the CPU overheating.

3-0 out of 5 stars terrible technical support & false claims
Having used sequential versions of MyDeluxeMailList & Address Book over more than ten years, I continue to use it, but not without misgivings.
The bulk-mail presort feature is essential and few other affordable software options exist.
Despite excellent reviews, My Software fails to live up to many of their product claims.
I've installed version 6.000 on two computers, XP and Win98 platforms. The "Quick Zip+4 Lookup" Key Feature doesn't work.
On the packaging is a statement "If you have purchased this CD within the last 90 cays call for a free update" (to the address database USPS yearly update). The caller is given no option to request this update when calling that number. Nor is there any option available on the website for requesting this update, or even sending a message to technical support about it.
Test every function you need when you install this product and if those functions don't work, return the product immediately.

5-0 out of 5 stars My Deluxe Mail List
This is one of the most flexabile and user friendly list management programs in the market place. We use it to import telemarketing call lists and to sort for "do not call's". New customers are tracked from the intial prospecting call to the installation of service. Each account has a separate service history. I tried three other programs and this was rated number one in our opinion. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Prepare Yourself For Some Frustration
The scroll wheel doesn't work in searching the contact list which is annoying with large databases. When you print lists of contacts there is no control of the font size. Get out your magnifying glass to see the default size ACT selected.

Tech support: Pay per incident is $50 for the first 10 minutes and $5 for each minute thereafter!!! 5 incidents for $199/year. $300/year for unlimited support. WOW. And try the online message board. Good luck. For all the complaining about Micrsosoft products, at least there are newsgroups worth something where you can get real answers.

I've talked to tech support. No plans to change any of the above. Oh yes, ACT crashed twice before we got it running. We're returning it.

3-0 out of 5 stars No free support
I have been an ACT user for over 6 years. I purcahsed the 6.0 upgrade due to the fact I bought a new copmputer that runs XP. I had a problem printing the monthly calander (did not have any problem with my old ACT version) I called ACT customer service and was told there is no free tech support for my problem. I could pay and receive help. I just want anyone looking to buy ACT to know that you get NO FREE tech support!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Not a whole lot different from Act 2000
I love Act and have been using it for 6 years now. However, little bugs that I experienced from Act 2000 have STILL not been fixed. Like when you are SCHEDULING an event and the little calendar drop-down appears - then I move the mouse cursor down in to the calendar area to select a date- then the drop-down DISAPPEARS!? Very frustrating.

The email is better - but still does not work flawlessly with Outlook Express. It's best to use the cc:mail and enter your POP3 and SMTP and use the Act system instead - which does a good job- but not as fast as Outlook Express.

The improvements made to ACT 6 are mainly additional features, not improvements of existing features. Was it worth my money? - not this time around. I should have waited for the next version where hopefully they would make this product solid in all the important areas.

It is still the best program out there however in my judgement. I have investigated getting another program, but haven't felt comfortable with any other format. ACT has the best visual interface in my opinion. They just need to get the minor bugs out of the most important parts. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Didn't Meet My Needs
I bought AnyTime Deluxe 8.0 to meet two needs: To obtain printouts of address book and daily calender for my DayTimer planner and to synchronize this information with my Palm Pilot.

It was little things that bothered me about the printout capability. Although the program added lines to cut paper for reduced size used in planners, the size for a standard planner is not 8½x5½ as it should be, but rather 8x5. Also, there is no easy way of making double sided printouts using the program - you need either a printer capable of double-sided printing or the patience to develop your own process.

I was totally frustrated with the synchronization capabilities of AnyTime Deluxe. Not all contact fields (phone numbers, e-mail, fax, etc) in the Palm Pilot were transferred to AnyTime. This was totally confusing, since the mapping rules with the program showed them to be properly mapped. For contact information, the Palm has pull down lists for defining type of contact (home phone, business phone, etc.). This info is not transferred into AnyTime Deluxe. Rather, there are its own pull down menus. When you use these pull-down list and sync with the Palm, the description is added to the phone number. (Example, if phone number in Palm is "555-1234" and you add description "Business Fax" in AnyTime and resync, phone number in Palm is "Business Fax 555-1234", using up precious display space in Palm lists.) Most frustrating, on several occasions when I changed info in my Palm and resynced, the synchronization program tried to delete all records in my Palm.

Because of the frustrations with syncing, I uninstalled AnyTime. The program removed cleanly, but the synchronization conduit did not. It left its conduit in Palm's HotSync manager and failed to reactivate the conduits to Palm's desktop program. I had to uninstall and reinstall the Palm software and all other conduits I use to get back to where I was before trying AnyTime.

My advice: If you use a Palm PDA, don't use AnyTime Deluxe.

5-0 out of 5 stars I like AnyTime Deluxe
I like AnyTime Deluxe. I tried a bunch of other programs - different daily planners - and this one just seemed to be better. AnyTime has a feature that sends out reminders at different times, like every 3 or 4 days, or the last Friday of the month. The other calendar systems I've tried didn't have that many variables in the reminders. I've been using AnyTime for over 3 years, and would recommend it to anyone interested in staying organized!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Networked Calendar
We have owned this product in Versions 7 and 9 for our law office for several years. If you need for more than one user to access the program simultaneously, as we do in the office, the program networks seamlessly. You could pay a fortune for a multi-user calendar like this from other vendors. If you have more than two users needing access, you can buy a license. I have seen many complaints in these reviews about technical support; I have e-mailed a couple of times and received a thorough response within 24 hours. The interface for the calendar and address book is easy to use. I highly recommend the program because of features, ease of use, and price.

1-0 out of 5 stars Do not buy if you want support
Anytime Deluxe 9.0 sounds good for the money. Mine quit working on WinXP after 2 days, and tech support did not reply to my complaint for over a week, when I was given the address to their FAQ page. It contained no helpful information. After calling them, the tech support person admitted there was a problem, and had me modify my registry. The software ran for about 2-3 days, and then stopped working again. I have called and written emails and tech support has not responded in over a week. Even at its best, the software is mediocre - so save your money and buy some software that works and that the company will support.

1-0 out of 5 stars Uncooperative and Annoying
I bought Anytime because I already had version 2.0. I liked the earlier version, but many of the things the older version had were either missing or less user friendly in 8.0. I couldn't load the files from version 2.0 directly into the new, (fortunately the old computer is still running so I could manually copy one to the other.) The entry process had a lot of unecessary steps which slowed down the process. Version 2.0 reminds you of missed date entries, the new one doesn't.

The version 8.0 has a lot of bells and whistles, like fax/cell/watts numbers, direct connection to e-mail, and a few others. The technical assist to Anytime is non-existant, either by 3 no-responce e-mails or 45 minutes on the phone. I'd stick with version 2.0 if you can load it into your computer, otherwise stick with Outlook. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars What an easy and flexible system!
Visual Staff Scheduler PRO made scheduling my staff easy. After setting up my employees (by entering their names and positions), I defined the shifts that I use. My retail store is open form 8 am to 9 pm Monday through Friday, so I have a variety of shifts throughout the day (from 4-hours to 10-hours in length). VSS PRO was flexible enough to let me define my own shifts.

With that information entered into the program, I was able to easily schedule my employees by selecting a shift and assigning it. Once I was finished scheduling my first month, I used the requirement rows and coverage totals to tell if I was over or under scheduled by day and shift.

When my schedule was finished, I easily generated reports for all of my employees. Not only could I view and print calendars for each employee, I could print a monthly staff schedule to post so everyone would know who is coming in and when.

Lastly, I actually figured out a way to better manage my employees' vacations through Visual Staff Scheduler PRO. Because the schedule has no ending date, I can pre-schedule vacations as far into the future as my employees ask. Now vacations are on a first-come-first-served basis. AND, I can now look back in time to see who had the previous holidays off so I can give the next holiday off to someone else who deserves it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I learned about my business as I wrote my plan
I just had to take the time to write a review of this software. Business Plan Pro is so easy to work with! Between the Hurdle book and the software's instructions and examples throughout it, I was amazed to finish an elaborate business plan from start to finish in one week!

I learned so much more about our company during this process and made many business decisions that I would have never learned until the mistakes were made. The print out was beautiful and it uses a format that everyone can understand (i.e., text, charts, tables). Thanks Palo Alto Software!

5-0 out of 5 stars Why write a plan without it?
As I approached the task of writing a business plan for a new business venture I was getting involved in, I debated trying to write the plan just using Microsoft Office or using a software product. Boy am I glad I found Business Plan Pro. It's excellent instructions, examples, and wizard-driven process had me breezing through my plan quickly and easily. I could see my progress as I went along, and it took all my questions about what makes a good business plan away.

I'm so glad I chose this product instead of trying to do it all on my own. Don't make the mistake I almost made!

5-0 out of 5 stars Couldn't pick a better software
Business Plan Pro 2003 walked me through a system that wrote my business plan for me. It took me 3 weeks to do my business plan and I can use the program over and over again in the future.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not a magic bullet
My assessment of Business Plan Pro, after using it for several months is that, in summary, it is a tool, not a magic bullet. If you don't understand business, it could render you a fool. But if you've never written a business plan before and have no idea where to start, its great for showing you what goes into a business plan and helping you organize your thoughts.

A Business Plan Pro business plan is composed of text, tables and charts. The system has a book that gives you some guidance on what to discuss for each text section but it's not really much. The two books that my box included were: Hurdle - The Book on Business Planning, and the manual. Hurdle was just OK. Moreover, the software is a divided screen with panes that guide you with text describing what you should write and where you are, but they leave a lot to be desired. The sample business plan for my company, a small computer consulting firm, was a joke.

But if you don't know what a Balance Sheet or a Cash Flow are, you're just plain screwed. I had a SCORE counselor review 2 business plans that I wrote with this product and he just hated them. The numbers were all wrong and non-sensical and I didn't even know what the reports meant. Moreover the reports, which are automatically generated, include tons of stuff that is very high level and generic. For example, one line item is "Sales Tax, VAT, HST/GST Received," which appears to be relevant in Canada and Europe and thus shouldn't be included here. Moreover, does that make sense in a business that is a service and doesn't have any employees? Also, there were many items that were there but had "0" values, such as "New Current Borrowing." The maker, Palo Alto Software, is selling a one-size fits all package. Beware!

I'm a programmer, not a businessman. And if you're not a businessman, this is the problem you'll have with this product. That's why I say its a tool, not a magic bullet. As my SCORE counselor said, "It won't magically produce a business plan for you."

2-0 out of 5 stars Ready Proof that 'Better' is the Enemy of 'Good Enough'
I heartily agree with other reviewers that MS Word & Excel templates are plenty sufficent for the -- apparently unavoidable -- time-consuming business planning task.

Business Plan Pro's attempts at simplicity only make it obtuse. Rather than permitting business owners to focus on the priorities of their particular business, BPP users will find themselves answering off-topic questions and dealing with other near-useless distractions that add little to no value.

Moreover, what good are 400 samples if _they can't be imported for use as a template_?? Selling the software on the basis of making all these great 'samples' available (when they most definitely cannot be used directly) is a borderline scam in my opinion. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Good but save your money
Okay maybe if your connection is slow or you don't have access to broadband you can buy this CD,but if not why bother?
OpenOffice.org is freely available online as is Firefox.
I use and love both so don't get me wrong here,but the price is a little too much but then again it goes to the developers.
Ooo is a great alternative to Microsoft Office and even Star Office.It does everything the same for free! I often do my homework and essays with Ooo Writer. And Firefox is what I am using to write this very review!It's one of the best Mozilla-based browsers besides the Mozilla Suite/Netscape 7 itself.

5-0 out of 5 stars Open Office and FireFox, wonderful software, excellent value
Open Office reads and writes in MS Office 97/2000/XP formats for Word, Excel and PowerPoint and can export documents to PDF format.
One of the best advantages is inexpensive upgradability.I purchased Office 95 ($400+ dollars) in 1996.When Office 97 came out, my Office 95 software would not open office 97 formatted documents.I toughed it out till I purchased Office 2000 ($500+ dollars) now Office XP and 2003 have came out (do we see a pattern here)?I suspect that it will be much less expensive to buy a $30 upgrade to Open Office to read and writedocuments created by upcoming versions of Micro$oft Office.
FireFox: "ad ware" resistant, pop up blocker and tabbed browsing... love it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great products, great price, great source!
Open Office and Firefox are two of the very best of their kind.Both give users the ability to work with the same files, websites and so on that they're used to, without the worries of bad macros, spyware, and other problems associated with the proprietary products these replace.Better yet, they're both faster, more powerful, and more up-to-date than those old dinosaurs.Perhaps best of all, these programs look and operate the same on Windows, Mac, Linux and other platforms, making it much easier if you or your family needs the flexibility.

The fact you can buy this set for a tiny fraction of the cost of just the Office suite it replaces is almost secondary to all the other features -- Open Office would be tough competition for Microsoft even if it cost the same as MS Office.

Linspire, the publisher of this collection, is highly respected for making open-source software widely accessible; if you like Open Office and Firefox, their Linspire Linux is among the best.

5-0 out of 5 stars Open Source Packaged and Marketed as It Deserves
OpenOffice.org and Firefox are both fantastic products lacking one simple ingredient. Despite their technical merits, the marketing efforts for these products have not been impressive... until now.

With Oooff, that has all changed. The products are finally sold next to other respected name brands on store shelves and through online retailers, like Amazon.com. Oooff is expanding the distribution channel of these open source products. Oooff will expose computer users that pay large sums for Microsoft Office and use the vulnerable, dull and underpowered Internet Explorer to the powerful alternatives they didn't know existed. Without a doubt, making open source software accessible is the first step in restoring a healthy and competitive software industry.

Oooff is a great idea and contains excellent products. This is a good buy and will give you the comfort of knowing that by purchasing this product,OpenOffice.org and Firefox will have an even brighter future. Kudos to everyone at Linspire, and the developers for OpenOffice.org and Mozilla Firefox! :)

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for Windows and Linux
If you use Windows this is the way to go.Free web browser that more than 10 Million people worldwide have switched over to.None of the security problems that Internet Explorer has.Popups blocked out of the box without not extra software.The office side saves you over 200 dollars paying for Microsoft Office.And it is completely compatible with Office formatted documents and more.If you have a college student on a budget that needs a office suite then this is for them. ...
