The preference needs to be restarted when you go to setup the TrashTimer under 10.6.6

Doesn't do much, but generally does what it says. Generally, I'm only using this until Compost is updated for Snow Leopard (or whatever is coming next). 2 things on my machine (8-Core 2.66 mghz, OSX 10.6.7, TT 1.2): It doesn't delete folders, but does delete files within those folders. I can't turn it off at the PrefPane.

I've been fooling around with this all morning, so far it works as advertized w/o any problem. I like the idea, but there's an obvious downside: it gives you two options, "remove items securely" and "remove items thoroughly". I assume both options are the equivalent of Apple's Secure Empty Trash (with a different number of passes). If so, and if you mistakenly trash something you later want to retrieve, you'll be s. o. l., since no restore program will be able to reclaim your data. Maybe it would be safer to give the user the option of a straightforward "empty trash" too.

Excellent idea and a great program. However in my experience it sometimes works and sometimes does not.

Unless I am gravely mistaken, there is no technology in this app (timers etc) that force the developer to release a 'Panther only' image. Xcode which ships with Panther is the first IDE for OS X that gives developers an easy option for creating images for additional target OS versions such as Jaguar. While it might be considered thin to support 10.1.5, it is far from thin to support 10.2.7. The vendor should support Jaguar. It's a process which takes all of five minutes real time. Further, the same image could be used for both OS versions, as there is nothing in the way technologically speaking: the APIs are fully compatible with both cats.
