CCC has been rock solid for me for years. It's fairly straightforward to use for the technically inclined. For the less inclined, CCC includes thorough documentation that covers every aspect of the app and the backup process. When I found myself with an unbootable system, my CCC backup performed precisely as expected, and quickly got me back up and running with no data loss. No one should be without a proper backup, so if your situation is not conducive to Time Machine, CCC is probably worth a look.

Just a heads-up: It would appear that the price of OmniFocus, for both MAS and direct download versions, has returned to $79.99.

Bark 1.1, with support for Growl 2, is now available on the developer's website. Bark handles Notification Centre integration in a far better way than Growl does (or can, due to MAS restrictions). Thank you for this great freebie.

There doesn't appear to be a demo of this app available for download. Am I missing something? If not, that's an instant deal breaker, not to mention highly unusual for something sold outside of the MAS.

Another great extension from Canisbos. For me, there are three main reasons that CustomReader beats Safari Reader: 1) it's highly customizable; 2) extensions don't work on tabs where Safari Reader is active, but CustomReader doesn't interfere with them; 3) CustomReader meshes very nicely with the uber-useful Pickpocket extension by the same developer. Also, the default reading view of CustomReader uses left-aligned text rather than Safari Reader's awful justified text. To tweak CustomReader you have to modify its CSS and/or HTML. However, it's quite easy to make some basic changes to the CSS, even with little or no pre-existing knowledge. Here are a couple quick examples. 1) Change font/size/line spacing of the main article text by editing the #story element in the CSS. You can set font size by pixel (px) or point (pt), set normal line spacing or line height in pixels, etc: #story { margin-top: 32px; font: normal 15px/1.5 Helvetica, sans-serif; } #story { margin-top: 32px; font: normal 12pt/20px "Times New Roman", serif; } 2) Change the colour of link text and/or make it underlined: #story a { color: blue; text-decoration: underline; } #story a { color: #006666; text-decoration: none; } It's pretty easy to figure out how to make these sorts of changes just by browsing through the default CSS and seeing how properties are set.

Gameplay seems solid so far, but I haven't managed to get much playing in. The process of levelling up and selecting skills has been greatly simplified, making the game more accessible to casual gamers but severely reducing the possibilities for character customization (i.e., no skill trees to choose from, and attribute points are automatically assigned on level up). I haven't played enough yet to have an opinion on the new system, but a lot of early adopters seem very disappointed (though I suspect that much of this is latent frustration from the server issues). So far D3 has been a disappointing overall experience. I really hope Blizzard gets its act together and gets the game running smoothly very soon.

Just a quick heads up: Path Finder 6.0.1 is now available, sporting two bug fixes--one for a crash and one to do with buying Path Finder. MU admins, feel free to delete this post once the update appears here. Thanks!

Like another word processor that appeared on MU a couple months back, this looks an awful lot like the open-source Bean 2...

I won't assign a star rating to Bartender while it's still in beta, but I am, so far, very happy with it. I simply place my less-used menu bar items in the Bartender bar and keep the visible menu bar nice and clean. Also, apps whose menu bar icons I previously kept hidden to save space now sit unobtrusively in the Bartender bar, making these apps' menu items easily accessible without taking up needed space. Like a poster below, I had to log out and back in to get some apps to show up in the Bartender bar, but everything is working fine after doing so. A note about the beta pricing: you can use Bartender for free while it's in beta, and you can purchase a licence during the beta for half of what the retail price will be upon Bartender's release. Anyway, I'd recommend this app without hesitation to anyone with an excessively busy menu bar.

Since 10.8 is still a developer-only preview of an unreleased OS, it makes little sense to assign it a star rating, or to gripe about its features. The good news in any case, for those of us testing 10.8, is that DP3 seems to correct many of the more annoying glitches in DP2. DP3 feels much snappier in general, and Safari in particular is much improved from the rather laggy build in DP2. BTW, make sure you read the seed note before installing DP3, as one of the known issues pertains to installation.
