I find it strange that MacUpdate is actively trying to destroy Koingo's business, yet stand idly by while Zeobit/Kromtech (the makers of MacKeeper) continue to suck in unwary Mac users. It's like we've all been transported to Bizarro World where everything is done backwards.

Last night, I sent a support request to Koingo in regards to my disabled AirRadar 1.3.2.
This morning, they responded with a free AirRadar 2.x license. So, Koingo is back in my good books again. :-)

v3.2 is not compatible with OS X 10.4. Tasty Apps posted the following on their website:
"Please note: As of this version of Videobox (3.2) it is no longer possible to support Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger). Users still running Mac OS X 10.4 should not upgrade; a bug-fix version will be released shortly for these users, in the legacy section."

v3.6.1 is not compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger). Trying to run it in Tiger results in an immediate crash (no dock bounce, no crash dialogue) and an error in the console.
Several people have submitted support requests and Freeverse has responded by telling them to use v3.5.7, instead. To reflect this change, Freeverse's website now lists the system requirements for v3.6.1 as "Mac OS X 10.5 or higher".
Apple Canon Printer Drivers
on 24 Mar 2010
Before downloading this gigantic file (which contains drivers for ALL Canon printers), run Software Update first. Usually, you'll find a much smaller download that contains only the driver(s) that you need.
For example, I have a Canon MP610 on one of my Macs. The download via Software Update was a measly 7.4 MB!
on 14 Dec 2011
Well, this method is still working fine for me. Software Update notified me of new Canon and Brother drivers today. Both downloaded and installed with no issues. The new drivers are much smaller (33 and 21 MB, respectively) than the full packages listed on MacUpdate.
Also, both new drivers are listed in Print & Fax. One of them fixed an issue that was present in the old driver, which seems to indicate that the drivers were updated properly. Not sure why you're having trouble with it, Umaromc.

I've been using the 10.6-compatible release of multiXFinder (v0.4) for about two weeks and it has been working great. It replicates ASM's look/feel so closely that one would be hard-pressed to tell them apart. As a result, I've dumped ASM in the trashbin and saved myself a few bucks (for ASM's upgrade fee) in the process.
My only gripe relates to the lack of a separator between the app icon/name and the menubar items. This was also mentioned in an earlier comment by John Sawyer. I find that the app name blends in with the clock digits, sometimes making it hard to distinguish between them at a quick glance.
So, offering the option of a separator would be a nice addition. However, this is a minor issue which doesn't really affect multiXFinder's functionality. I'll probably get used to it, eventually.
Application Switcher Menu
on 02 Sep 2009
For those of you are balking at paying the new upgrade fee for ASM and are looking for alternatives...
X-Assist still seems to work with Snow Leopard. It's a little bit primitive compared to ASM, but the basic functions (i.e. application switcher menu and classic window mode) are there.
Meanwhile, Jack Overfull says that he's working on a new version of multiXFinder (v0.4). At the top of the list is Snow Leopard compatibility. It should be available sometime this month. That's good news for people who like the way that ASM operates, since it's basically the same app.
Personally, I'm debating whether to pay the upgrade fee. I've been an ASM user for several years and had assumed that the upgrades would continue to be free. But, nothing lasts forever, I guess. I'll probably try X-Assist for a while, then multiXFinder when a 10.6-compatible version arrives. If they don't work out, then I can always ante up the dough for ASM again.
VLC Media Player
on 30 Jul 2009
Just wanted to mention to all the folks still using OS X 10.4.x (Tiger) that VLC 0.9.10 was released recently. It fixes several annoying bugs and crashes that plagued 0.9.9a.
It can be found at: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-macosx.html
Scroll about halfway down the page to find Universal, PPC, and Intel binaries.
Mac OS X Daylight Saving Time Software Fix
on 06 Mar 2007
I installed UNH's DST fix on one of our older G4 towers still running 10.2.8. It was a very easy process. Checking the localtime info via Terminal (as described on UNH's DST tech info page) shows that the new DST settings are in place.
Overall, this was a worthwhile undertaking.
