I will take you into CC then. But can't you give it another try and try (again) 
to subscribe to the gcmd devel mailing list ? (it needs subscription)

Krusader calls it 'popular places'. These entries will be added to a list 
automagically, just a fav list by statistics like music players do. It could 
also be just the last 20 visited folders or so.
Anyway: You never manually add or remove something manually there, that's 
unlike bookmarks.
I agree however that it creates the same workflow like bookmarks, you have to 
open a list and look through and choose an entry.

As you will see in my previous mail i've already picked up you "treeview 
bookmarks" which is a great idea !

I suspected it but i couldn't believe it :) but, i would have done exactly the 
same. Start the recording an then, uhm, oops, hey what to do now ??!

Ok but look my understanding of developing application (well that's exclusively 
Piotr's job here) is that you try to optimize it for user, not for coder. I 
knwo this is not always true in real life :)

that's nice to hear !

yes, that's a good idea and would pick up Piotr's work nicely

also cool

> I think it would be "ultimate"

you're right :)

My final ultimate idea: A file-manager which automatically opens the folder you 
Or even, which one you really needed to open, even if you don't know!
I don't think of telepathy here. No ! Just forecasting the future.
