It’s a couple of years since I last gave MenuMeters 5 stars. By now giving it another 5 stars I hope that indicates that I am actually giving it TEN stars.

Does anyone really use a Mac without at least the CPU 'thermometer' in the menubar?

I just thought it was a long time since I gave a rating to this wonderful app - so I'm doing so again.

Many thanks to the developer for some brilliant work ...and for letting us have it free of charge.

The price ($15) given here is not correct. CCC is “DonationWare”. What you download is the complete, uncrippled app and Mike Bombich invites you to use it until you are happy with it. Mike trusts you to then follow your conscience and to say “thanks” by donating whatever you think it is worth to you.

If you already have a previous version of CCC do NOT download from here. Launch your version of CCC and use the menu item “Update CCC...” which will guide you to upgrade correctly.

If you have any question or problem using CCC go to and browse or search. If you can’t find anything that helps use “Start a discussion” and you are likely to get help very quickly.

When you see that a new version has been released do NOT download it from here if you have an earlier version. Launch CCC and use its menu item “Update CCC”. That will give you simple instructions to ensure that any schedules or saved tasks are updated correctly for the new version.

Do NOT download this...

until you have tried the marvellous QuickAccessCM from which does a heck of a lot more than just move things, is beautiful to use, and is free!

BTW, be aware that Snow Leopard has no Contextual Menus.

Thanks, BJ, for picking that up. I pruned a longer paragraph (saying “...has no facility for... in Contextual menus”) just before I posted and obviously didn't notice that I had over-pruned to create an an untruth. Thanks!
The warning about this “MoveCM” remains unchanged!!

The Developer seems to have either died or just collects money for registration and nothing else.

I posted a question in the Baseline Forum on Apr 1, i.e. 3 wks ago, concerning a problem I was having. There was a message to say that my post would have to be checked before being displayed. It has not yet appeared. While in the forum I saw -- to my astonishment -- that there had been a reply to a previous post I had made in June ‘09. The gap between that post and the Developer's reply, in December '09, had been SIX MONTHS. If you find that unbelievable see

I was one of the first to pay for this app when it first appeared, and I praised it repeatedly in several forums. I have myself resolved the problem I reported on Apr 1 (and, no, it wasn't a joke!). I am DISGUSTED.

Note that I am not complaining about the app. I am warning folk not to expect any service from the "Developer" in exchange for registering.

Do not bother to download this lamentable attempt at a rip-off. Have a look at the free original, the marvellous Sidenote --

At least it's good to see they have been unable to earn money from it -- they have presumably been unable to fool enough people.

Pierre ( ) explains why there has been no update to Sidenote for a while, but Hey! it works beautifully, and it's superbly crafted.

My apologies to the developer that this board won't allow me to give a rating above 5.

To get rid of the ads...

After donating, go to CCC's Help menu > "Donate" (don't worry - you won't be asked to donate again) > click "I paid".

It won't take a genius to realise that you could click on "I paid" even if you haven't donated. Mike Bombich trusts users and leaves it up to their conscience. Mike gives you CCC completely uncrippled whether you donate or not. What he doesn't stress are the costs involved, e.g. the bandwidth for the flood of downloads every time a new version is released, and the maintenance of the forums. Happy cloning!

Do make use of the CCC forum. At least read the 'Stickies' there, especially "BEFORE YOU POST a question..." and the links in it to details for preparing a target drive.
