Thanks for the update. I like the idea mentioned in your blog ( http://www.infinitenil.com/blog/category/macosx/packrat/ ) for an Archiver and/or Page Saver, but think these functions would be better as additions to PackRat, rather than as a separate program. Since PackRat emphasises ease of use, keeping it simple would be great: you could have a pop-up for archiving every n days and the page saver could simply copy to an archive file when an entire page is deleted.

Backpack is easy to use and PackRat makes it even better: a superb job of replicating the features on your Mac so you save time. And the developer is very quick to reply to emails. Highly recommended.

PackRat appears to be for Intel, only. I have version 1.6 on OS X 10.4.11 on a PowerPC and it works fine. This version (1.6.2) crashes because the Growl-WithInstaller Framework is found, but for the wrong architecture. This is according to CrashReporter.

This looks like an application I could use for gathering research data for my studies. In addition, it appears I could use it to aid my selection of books by gathering reviews for me. It would be nice!

This is an interesting concept for a PIM. My only worry is how much time it could take keeping track, rather than doing. But, that's always my problem with PIMs. The sync is a definite plus. How about voice integration?

Seems like a cool app! The BackPack way of keeping track of things may be just what I've been looking for, but then again, maybe not... Ask me in a week or two..!

My biggest problem with keeping organized has always been keeping all my to-do lists in one place. PackRat gives me access to my Backpack lists and projects on my laptop even when I am not connected to the net. Now I can work all day on my laptop, and and all the action items I capture with PackRat are available on my desktop at home with a click of a botton!

Recently, I've been using it a lot more, but couldn't really convince myself completely because of the offline-issue. PackRat seems to be what I was waiting for. Great deal!

paid or not, BackPack is interesting. PackRat just may make it useful enough to justify.

This only seems worth it if you have a paid Backpack account.

The app looks simple, but effective. This might be the nudge I need to start using my Backpack account.
