Well, looks like that domain is parked now... and apparently the UB, the last version I knew about, no longer works on 10.6.8 at least. It worked last time I tried (10.6.?).

I love this app, but since I now am using an Intel iMac, Slashdock opens and just sits there.

I hope a universal version is in the making. I miss Slashdock!

I wish more apps would utilize the app's dock menu like this one elegantly does. The only questionable part of SlashDock is the way sometimes seems inconsistent in the way it flags headlines, with regard to the combination of read/unread status and pulled/unpulled status.

This app is one of the VERY few I have downloaded (out of thousands) that remains a must have for me. I use it over the highly regarded netnewswire lite as it is smaller, less obtrusive and has all of the functionality I need. The PERFECT newsreader for me.

Who the heck would want updates from a crummy site like Slashdot?

The reader checks sites that have the slash server setup... not just Slashdot. There are hundreds of sites available for use.

What is the developer going to do for those of us on Snow Leopard? Just like my previous post before SlashDock went universal, the icon is back to just opening and sitting there doing nothing, Any updates planned?
