Version 1.1.1 of PandoraMan appears to be Intel only. Was the PPC support intentionally dropped from the build?

Ver 1.1.1 shows about 1% CPU usage on my core2 duo system. Now has log-on capabilities without starting off on Pandora's web page first.

The only downside I've caught is that it doesn't seem to use the key chain --- which means a **manual** log-on to get to "my" stations

Huge memory hog. Just got the latest version and same problem. Consistently sucking up 33% of CPU acc. to Activity Monitor. There are other standalone Pandora players that are much leaner than this one, although this Pandora Man's feature set is pretty good.

This does exactly what it needs to do, no more and no less, and another review noted. I'd used it all the time, except that I have a paid subscription, and I can't login to my account via the app.

The "account" pulldown is displayed, but it's not functional. I'm running SL.

Unfortunately Pandora removed those features from their Mini Player. As a workaround you can login to Pandora through Safari and it will hold onto your login credentials in PandoraMan.

Does what it says and more... like pop up ad's in a browser. Two as a matter of fact... not worth it IMHO.

You can also use Fluid to create your own, which will let you login & stay logged in.

This minimal app has been around for quite a while, but it still works flawlessly under Leopard. It does exactly what it needs to do, no more no less.

OK, but if we allowed users to edit their comments, then they could edit out whatever parts of their comments that may have become inconvenient sometime after posting them, say, when and if someone took issue with their post and responded to it, and then edit their original post and claim they never said (posted) any such thing. After years of experience with 'boards', I've seen just this sort of thing happen.

I've seen forums/boards where the user has a fixed amount of time to update a post, say 15-30 minutes. After that it becomes locked. That seems like a good intermediate solution. If a person makes a typo they didn't see on the initial post, they can go back and fix it within the specified time frame. Locking it quickly afterwards prevents them from doing want you state, changing their comment based on a reply.

Version 1.0.12 fixes the problem reported below where ads loaded in the browser. I wrote to the developers late last week reporting this, and while they didn't acknowledge my e-mail, this new release shows they were listening! Thanks!

When I wrote Pandora.com about the problem of PandoraMan opening browser pages upon almost any action, this is the reply I received:

" PandoraMan is an unauthorized, unsupported program. The only way to use Pandora without seeing our full range of ads-- while staying within our Terms of Use and still helping us keep Pandora a sustainable service-- is to subscribe to Pandora, and continue to visit http://www.pandora.com directly. [What you describe are bugs and glitches within that unsupported program.]"

Something that has been happening just recently is that, every time I rate a song, my browser opens a new window and loads a page from pandora.com, what looks like something meant for the mini player. This is annoying, although not yet enough so that I would stop using PandoraMan over the site.

same here. pandora must've changed their streaming somehow because even when I use it on their site it refuses to play continuously in the background unless I go back to (see the ads) player. Gotta pay the bills I guess.

They are Pandora's ad's and go directly to them.

Every time I start or stop playing a station in PandoraMan, a blank window opens in Safari. Does anyone know why that happens? If I don't close each window, after a while I have quite a few open.

Like it very much. However, one problem. Growl recognizes and registers the application (1.0.6). But, the notifications do not work. So I am not able to see what song is playing when the application is hidden. Fix this and it will be perfect.
