Since updating to Mavericks, USB Overdrive is disabled whenever my Mac Pro sleeps. To reenable it, I have to open System Preferences, select the USB Overdrive pane, and then select my trackball settings in the dropdown menu. I hope this isn't abandoned because it's the best USB driver for my needs. If the sleep issue isn't fixed soon, I'll have to migrate to ControllerMate.

I compared all the memory purge utilities, and found Memory Clean to have the best interface, the most robust features, and a clear graphical representation of memory usage supported by a list of different types of memory used. A lot of thought went into this app and it shows. It's one of those "I can't believe this is free" apps. My only qualm is the menubar icon/text, which convey little info relative to the space occupied. iStat Menues has the best menubar memory icon/text design that I've tried, and it would be nice if Memory Clean were updated with something similar. A pie chart, and two lines of small font text showing used and free memory. Four stars for now, to be updated to five stars if the menubar icon is fixed.

Arrrrggghhhhh! I rebooted and Memory Clean punk'd me with an advertisement!

If this happens again, ZERO STARS. I will not tolerate adware on my Mac.

Doesn't seem to work under Mavericks. Regardless of how many folders or volumes I select to analyze, I get the following error: "No Items Were Processed: No items being processed can be due the 'Items to Ignore' that you have set or maybe there are no items selected via the 'Folders to Analyze' you have set." The developer's site has no contact info, so I'm forced to leave this there at MacUpdate.

Simple and clean, it just works. One feature I'd really like is the ability to select different subjects for each day, and then get random verses pertaining to the selected subject. I work among heathens who desperately need the word of God. Some are beyond my power to save; they brag of being atheists which leaves their empty souls easy prey for the liberal doctrines such as free love and manlust. The others think of themselves as Christians so with God's help they can likely be saved from their reckless hedonism. I used to explain God's will directly, but such confrontations are fodder for Satan. God showed me that subtle hints and clues are the path to deviant's soul. My hope is that each random Leviticus verse will chink away at my coworkers' armor, an armor forged of modern society's hedonistic theory of free sexual congress among men. When greeted with a new verse every day, this hedonist armor will dent and weaken, until finally a single quote, the proverbial last straw on a camel's back, will breach it and in will flood the Glory of Almighty God! His word will sanctify their souls and banish their manlust forever! In through the armor hole His glory will flood like a veritable glory hole of holy righteousness! May God praise you for your holy work on Desktop Verse. If ever a bug drives you to despair, think of the glory hole your app will tear in many a heathen's armor!

Too bad this abandoned, because it looks to be exactly what I need.

Thanks, I'll give it a try.

Gave it a try: imported 7227 Safari bookmarks no problem, right into a flat list of bookmarks! It doesn't preserve the folder hierarchy, lol. Like I'm going to tag over 7000 unorganized bookmarks. FAIL. I swear every bookmark manager I've tried is made for people with less than 100 bookmarks.

@Kessler: yes, I know all about tags. I access my Safari bookmarks via hierarchical menus from the bookmarks bar, similar to 99% of all Safari users. Tags are fine as a secondary tool for finding bookmarks in a different way, but they are not a convenient primary tool to access when using Safari.

The auto-tagging adds tags dependent on the folder structure, which is a nice touch but hardly adequate for migrating entirely to tag-based management. Again, I'm not going to sit at my computer to tag my 7000+ bookmarks - not even if Webnote pays ME $25.

GUI is a real mess. As a loyal Calibre user, I don't require an app to use a native OS X interface, but I do expect it to be reasonably polished. Task Coach is anything but. The icons are too small and they lack contrast. Many of the widgets are white against a light gray background. The GUI layout has no rhyme or reason, it is simply loaded up with controls with no meaningful representation of what they do. Aside from the GUI disaster zone, this app is loaded with features, is cross-platform, and costs nothing (iOS app is $1). If you don't mind fighting against an ugly GUI, then it's worth considering, especially given the $40-$50 price of competing apps. 2Do is the polar opposite of Task Coach, featuring a GUI that is a work of art. It is my favorite of the GSD apps.

Current version is 3.6.2, available at the tor project website: https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en Tor Browser is based on Firefox ESR, so it's a rock solid platform, user friendly, but like using an older version of Firefox. Installation is drag and drop. Launch it and you're already browsing anonymously. It just works. It's a bit slow, but that's the nature of the Tor network.

Is this discontinued? The Twig page at Eastgate redirects to Tinderbox, but the Twig download link on this page still works.

Used this to sniff out a pr0n hound at work. The look on his face when I showed him the photos was priceless!
