Might be interested at 1.99 but not at 9.99. Looking at other alternatives/options. Don't have a problem paying a small fee to dev but I believe 9.99 for this is too expensive.

Confirming 10.9.2 did not fix the NTS issue with significant drift in System clocks - to get system back to correct time, I have to open Date + Time Pref Pane and unclick then click on the "Set date and time automatically" box. Drift is significant and well known issue - see
https://discussions.apple.com/message/23924875#23924875
and

and

for starters.

I am still using iWork '09 - previous versions are so much better than current 'improvements'.
5 stars for iWork 09, ZERO stars for Pages/Numbers/Keynote 5.

Approached dev and he has been remarkable in assisting with my troubleshooting efforts - identified out of date Adobe utility and some legacy SIMBL files that prevented TMS from running.
Installed and all working fine - can recommend this app if you want to tweak your TM schedule. Worth a trial run!

App hung when I dragged a folder of 600 image files onto it. Forced quit, restart and tried 100 image files. Another hang. Deleted app, still looking for alternative.

Highly recommended - been using it for several months to sort/manage/cull a very large image collection (2.4 TB) of mine. My workflow requires image files to be sorted by date/project/subject etc and so stuff gets moved around, duplicated, edited etc I use Fusio to maintain integrity of my master collection of images. If you are unsure, the price shouldn't be a barrier to trying this software.

Fails under Mavericks.
Mini and Air on same network, each 'sees' the other but nothing ever gets transferred. I have added specific IP address for each machine and even when selecting specific IP address, the file transfer fails with a wide ranging variety of error messages from 'remote host not available' to spontaneous 'file transfer cancelled' etc. Using USB flash drive instead... Happy to send logs to dev (have offered to do so in past) to help solve frustrating proble. App was excellent but reliability has deteriorated over time.

Seems sluggish under 10.9 Mavericks.

Also I see that 6.0.8 is available at dev's web page - but requires Oracle account to login/access/download.

Can't install under Mavericks 10.9 despite having operating Java environment. None of the mandatory 10, 11 or 12 updaters run or install.

Would like to know why software updates/patches are Java rather than DMG/applications.

Java is a train wreck on Mavericks but we still need it for CF and other applications, so more headaches to come!

Running QGIS 1.8 after loading various libraries as required.
Taking 2 minutes from clicking on icon to having application running on MBA mid-2012 with 128G SDD and 8GB RAM.

Lots of log entries for unresolved DYLD issues:

2/08/12 1:23:10.000 PM kernel[0]: QGIS (map: 0xffffff80336e6308) triggered DYLD shared region unnest for map: 0xffffff80336e6308, region 0x7fff94200000->0x7fff94400000. While not abnormal for debuggers, this increases system memory footprint until the target exits.

Also repeated calls for SIMBL:

2/08/12 1:20:59.599 PM QGIS[1086]: Performance: Please update this scripting addition to supply a value for ThreadSafe for each event handler: "/Library/ScriptingAdditions/SIMBL.osax"

running 10.8 so I guess some of the slow startup is due to calls to SIMBL, but 2 minutes does seem a long time..

would have preferred to log bug report on dev web pages but wasn't interested in establishing user acct and more, so posted here. Happy to contribute to any trouble-shooting that might solve this for me.

Am wondering if Moom is ML 10.8 compatible? Some strange window behaviours, including windows stretching way beyond normal bounds (eg window with 2 columns of files, when hover over green button, window zooms to right to expand window to accommodate 3 or sometimes 4 columns of files even though they aren't there..)
hard to describe behaviours but quirky and unpredictable would sum up my experiences under ML

Help - is anyone else having problems with Flash and ShockWave content? {Before I get flamed re Flash content etc], I need Flash for a couple of sites - no choice. Any site I visit now tells me that I need to install Flash and ShockWave plugins (that are installed) so any ideas why this is happening? Any solutions out there?

Folks, solved this: you have to use Firefox 4 in 32-bit mode. The plugins are 32 bit and will not load if you use Firefox in 64bit mode. Other people's comments re performance (better in 64bit mode compared to 32 bit mode) hold water for me - there is a noticeable difference to me.

No go, updater didn't work.

After 5 minutes of looking for files to update and no progress made, I killed the process. How hard can it be to update your own software? Updater was hanging, soaking up CPU, the fan was going wild and nothing was happening.. why do we bother with this sort of software ??

Confirming, DropCopy 1.6.2 Universal with hidden Dock pref starts up as Developer indicates. Slimming non-intel code kicks in the annoying startup message, so stripping non-intel code breaks app signature. So- don't strip languages/non-intel code from DropCopy and all will be fine.

Been doing some digging around as to why 1.6.2 still gets the annoying message at startup ("Do you want to allow...") with a hidden dock icon.

I followed up on re-signing the app as per the DropCopy FAQ and came up with this:

$ codesign -v /Applications/DropCopy.app
/Applications/DropCopy.app: a sealed resource is missing or invalid

hmm. digging around some more I found this:

$ codesign -dvvvv /Applications/DropCopy.app
Executable=/Applications/DropCopy.app/Contents/MacOS/DropCopy
Identifier=DropCopy
Format=bundle with Mach-O universal (i386)
CodeDirectory v=20100 size=2197 flags=0x2(adhoc) hashes=104+3 location=system
CDHash=df60b9a49c6ae92a556bc9a2a32e856373ae6433
Signature=adhoc
Info.plist entries=14
Sealed Resources rules=4 files=57
Internal requirements count=1 size=144

is it possible that the app must remain Universal to be signed? I strip all my non-intel code from all apps using XSlimmer - maybe DropCopy doesn't like to be slimmed?

any thoughts?

Major problems after upgrading to 10.6 Snow Leopard. Under 10.6, Word was unstable, crashing occasionally. Under 10.6.1, essentially unusable - hangs/crashes constantly. Have cleared font caches etc. no go. Tried to reinstall latest updater for Office (12.2) but was unable. What now?

confirming flaky/unpredictable behaviour under 10.6. suggest you dont use it until developer releases update for SL.
