This app is labeled as "a next-generation news reader" while it has an etremely dated user interface. Too funny :D

I never had any problems at all with Transmission, until this latest beta that is. Now I get random crashes and had to downgrade to b3 again.
Unfortunately I can't reproduce the crashes since they are so random but I hope that the next beta will be stable again.

For what it does, this app is awesome! There, I said it. :-)

When I first started Brush Pilot it automatically found all my brushes across two separate drives. This might not be surprising but what did surprise me is how fast it did it.
It is extremely fast, at least in demo mode where it will only display 5 brushes. Personally I would instead prefer a fully functional but time limited demo in order to see how it handles larger brush libraries. However, it still seems to load the entire brush library even though it only will display 5 brushes.

Brush Pilot is a bit light on the feature side of things but we're only at 1.0.x so I'm sure features will be added as time passes.
Some things I would like to see:
* Show brush size - Handy to know if a brush is 345 px or if it is 2178 px.
* Optional column view in the left sidebar - I use subfolders in my main brush folder and it would make it easier to switch between brush libraries if I could use column view.
* Bookmarks/Favorites - Would be nice if it was possible to bookmark a brush library. Quite handy if you have many libraries. It Would really ROCK if it was possible to bookmark individual brushes within a library.
* Taging - The ability to add tags to libraries or even to individual brushes within a gallery.
* Search - A must if you have loooooads of brushes ;-)

What would make me a truly happy camper is if Brush Pilot eventually went from just a brush viewer to a brush viewer/organizer/editor. I have wished for quite some time for better and more powerful brush editing tools. Not making actual brushes mind you but instead creating and editing brush libraries.
I find the Present Manager in Photoshop to be very basic as well as "clunky". It misses features like variable preview size (Brush Pilot already has this), sorting (name/tag/size/age etc.), drag/drop support.
I realize however that this might be outside the scope of Brush Pilot but a boy can always dream, can't he? ;-)

I don't use the automatic sync either since it requires that the iTunes Helper application always is running in the background.
This script looks interesting indeed :-)

Unfortunately I have to agree with MSWWSM that the most useful feature in this software is the Uninstall function.

I downloaded Hear to check out if it could improve the often poor audio coming from various video sources. (Movies played in VLC, YouTube clips etc.)

My set up consists of an external MOTU Ultralite soundcard, which is hooked up to a pair of Tannoy studio monitors.

It seems like Hear doesn't like the external card at all. Hear remains inactive when the MOTU is selected for audio output and the computer throws a fit, with either audio drop-outs or the spinning beachball of death, when I try to access the Sound System Preferences or the Audio MIDI setup utility.

As for the actual sound quality of Hear, I can't say as I didn't get it to work.

There used to be a HUGE void in my life. One I desperately tried to fill with Sex, Drugs n' Rock n' Roll but with no luck.
No amount of various designer chemicals, voluptuous girls or pounding beats could remove the constant cloud of dullness that was looming over my head.

Finally "Duck" came along and now my life is complete.

Ahhhhhh... the tranquility.

I had the same experience as you. Click render, select file format and destination, POFF!!!
But then after clicking around a bit I got it running :-D

This app is in serious need of a manual/read me file... ;-P

Andy, for that functionality you need to get MAMP Pro.

From the MAMP Pro site (http://www.living-e.de/en/products/MAMP-PRO/index.php):

With MAMP PRO, you can easily connect your local server with an existing Dynamic DNS provider, as for example dyndns.com. Making it very simple to quickly make the results of your work accessible externally for superiors and prospective customers. And because you can set up many virtual hosts, you can easily offer alternative configurations or suggestions.

Some General MacUpdate Advice:
If you need more information about an application just click the... errrr... hmmmm... "More Information" link, just below the "Download Now" link.
(Well... Duh! ;-)

If you would have done so, you would straight away have seen the following text:
"Maestro is music sharing done right. With just two clicks, you are ready to browse, select, and download music from any Maestro user on your network."
Kinda answers your question, doesn't it? ;-P
