Hi all,

As usual, we seem to get exhausted after the Wednesday meeting, so we
keep quiet (guessing) :-). I am just kidding.

If it takes too much time for the directory browsing and selecting to
work, I suggest that we leave a textbox in the place to let users to
type in the directory name (either absolute or relative path).

David's new filter definition offers more flexible and
easier-to-understand but the implementation for that will be more
complicated. You have to predict all the possible combinations that the
users could think of or (some clever users) create. However, I believe
that it should be reasonable to have the new one work and we can limit it
to only what we can predict.

In all cases, we should not disable the tabs because users always want to
look into them to see what's in there even though they do not want to use
those options/functions in the tabs. Therefore, we should keep all the
tabs available at all time, but disable what's inside when necessary.

Have a good Friday, the 13th, and a nice weekend if nothing else happens.
