Daniel Jalkut writes about his application, MarsEdit, being reviewed my Macworld. Congratulations, Daniel!
Count Those Mice!: "I was thrilled to see that Macworld today posted a review of MarsEdit 2.0. The application earned 4 mice, which for those of you who follow the magazine know, is a pretty great accomplishment. I’m betting that one day I’ll earn all five, but for the time being I’m quite pleased with this achievement.
As the year is coming to an end, I thought about the applications which have improved my everyday life, specifically the shareware applications that I either purchased this year or which I was involved in through testing or translating. So, I present to you my list of "Shareware Applications Of The Year", in alphabetical order. Read More
Anton kindly reported a memory leak in Lab Tick 0.8 to me, which we all seem to have missed during testing. I fixed the leak in 0.8.1 which I released a few minutes ago. Use Lab Tick's update feature or download the disk image.
Given the Quicksilver source code is now out in the open, I’m trying to learn from it while at the same time cleaning it up. Here’s what I’ve done so far.
A lot of features were buried in the source, available only by setting some preferences to allow them. Mostly it was due to buggy implementation or pending improvements. I managed to resurrect a few of these nifty ones and fix a few old bugs that have annoyed me for ages.
Thanks to Michelle I found out that commenting on articles here was impossible due to some error which was most likely caused by a bug in Serendipity. I updated S9Y to version 1.2.1 today, and commenting works again.
A few months ago, my brother-in-law contacted me about a broken hard disk drive. It was a 160 GB Maxtor drive which had an obvious phyical defect, and he asked me whether I could help him recover the data on the drive - there were hundreds, if not thousands, of pictures of my niece on the drive that have never been backed up (yeah, I know). So I took the drive in my hands and started my attempt at rescuing these important files. Read More
Lab Tick has been featured in the German Mac Life magazine again. In issue 01/2008 on page 97 in the "Tipps & Tricks" section, there's a small article on the MacBook Pro's backlit keyboard which mentions Lab Tick as a good way to test and/or use the backlit keyboard in daylight.
I've given out a beta copy of Lab Tick 0.8 to testers today, and I have already received one report back of a tester who could not find any issues at all. If they all come back without problems, I might release Lab Tick 0.8 still this week.
