Is there a program like Sidekick 99 available?

Is there a program like Sidekick 99 available?

(OP)
I have used Sidekick for years and would like to get a similar program.  I use Sidekick card file for project contact information and use the card log to track incoming and outgoing information regarding each project.

RE: Is there a program like Sidekick 99 available?

I also use Sidekick 99 religiously.  Knowing that it is no longer supported, I am also concerned about finding a similar type program to replace it.  So far, the closest I have come is a program called Anytime Deluxe.  I played with the program and although it is like Sidekick in many ways, it is inferior in certain respects.  For example, you can't set up notes in different folders with tabs like you can in Sidekick.  I use the notes feature in Sidekick extensively.  They have some type of feature called grouping (some type of filter) to separate notes out into different cagtegories, but I could not get it to work to my satisfaction.  I may look at the program again soon.  The other PIM I have seriously looked at is Lotus (IBM) Organizer, which is actually a pretty good program.  It is a more serious application geered towards the business user.  Personally, I cannot believe that Starfish did not sell Sidekick to some other company that would continue to improve and support it.  I guess you can blame Microsoft for this, as Outlook has pretty much overwhelmed the market for PIM's.

Good evening,  my daughter suggested that someone in this group might be able to provide me with a copy od Starfish 98 to replace the one I lost when I was invaded by a worm.

My e-mail address is:  tnjones55@earthlink.net.

DaleDu,

Have you checked out the program: "Organize, Quick & Easy"
by IndividualSoftware, Inc.?  (www.individualsoftware.com)
I just got a copy and it seems to do a lot of what Starfish 98 does.  tapdancer

(OP)
Thanks for the tip.  I am checking it out.  So far I haven't had much luck with others.  They don't have the customizable fields like sidekick.  The best one I found so far is the Desktop Set software.  I sidekick to track projects.  So in the list view I have project # and project name.  Then in each card file I have about 20 fields for contacts regarding each project.  Then in the log in each card I track incoming and outgoing information regarding each project.
