Default Combining two pieces of old software

I have had QuickLookup (QL) installed since October of 2001 and that is one of the few programs that I have migrated with each new PPC!

The other piece of old software is MS Reader.

Well I just downloaded the latest rev of QL and was pleased to find that the lookup feature (you can look up a word from any program) is now stationary in the top tool bar.

What I have done is created a shortcut to QL in my startup folder and now the Lookup feature is always active (no noticeable resource consumption from what I can see)

Now when I'm reading an eBook I have instant dictionary lookup.

"So what, this was in MS Reader already." I never cared for the Encarta because it was difficult to use as a stand alone dictionary at a resource cost of 10M I would rather spend that resource on QL and have the stand alone ability of a dictionary in addition to the lookup feature.

My only association with QL is that I beta tested the software back in 2001 and got a free copy.
