Version 4.0.5 is available at
Unfortunately, it crashes a lot on 10.8.2.

This software works exactly as advertised, even on a current system. I especially like its unobtrusive positioning in the menu bar and its simple configuration. The only additional feature I'd like to see added is a history graph so you can easily spot changes within a certain time frame.

Still working just fine on Mac OS X 10.7.4.

All is well on 10.8.2.

Whether one likes LibreOffice or not probably for a large part depends on whether one is skilled at using MS Office or not and has grown to depend on it's huge array of features. It follows many identical design and interface concepts and it's up to each and everybody to decide if that's a good thing. Personally, I've always thought that the OpenOffice project was trying a bit too hard to be like MS Office, and LibreOffice pretty much follows suit. Many design choices feel somewhat clunky and confusing, making the overall handling of the various applications rather unintuitive. The software also feels a bit alien on the Mac since it sports a typical Windows look and feel. Not being a MS Office veteran myself I just never quite feel at home in LibreOffice.

That is not to say that LibreOffice is a bad piece of programming. On the contrary. This office suite has proven to be extremely reliable and incredibly versatile. It's slew of features, options and supported file formats for both im- and export can be quite a lifesaver. I especially like Draw and it's compatibility with SVG and WMF vector files.

However, most of the time I don't even need all the different features (and probably can't find them if I do) and find the interface a bit to convoluted. For my day to day needs I, therefore, prefer to use simpler applications such as iWork or Bean (or even TextEdit in many cases).

So all in all, if you're leaning towards power user and need many of the advanced functionality offered by LibreOffice and are at the same time willing to accept a slightly steeper learning curve than less complicated alternatives, then this is for you.

But if you consider yourself to be an average user who just has to write a few texts now and then and maybe do a little spreadsheeting you might well be satisfied with simpler, more intuitive alternatives.

Nevertheless, this being free it never hurts to keep it around for those few situations where you actually do need that extra power.

This is a very useful little tool for everyone trying to lose a few pounds. It's a great (and cheap) alternative to the expensive hardware calculator. A nice feature would be the possibility to create presets for often used foods as well as an inbuilt calculator with paper tape to quickly add up multiple ingredients.

Since unRarX hasn't been updated in quite a while it still includes some fairly outdated versions of unrar and par2. Here's how you can manually update the binaries yourself:

Download the newest version of RAR (, extract it, and look for a binary file simply called "unrar". Now locate in the finder, right-click it, and choose "Show Package Contents" from the contextual menu. From here navigate to the folder /Contents/Resources/, and copy your new version of unrar here, thereby replacing the old one.

To get a more recent version of par2 you may need to download an application which already contains a compiled binary. I recommend going with MacPAR deLuxe ( Download it, mount the DMG, and open the package contents as described above. Again, navigate to /Contents/Resources/ where you will find a binary file called par2SL. Copy it to the same directory in your UnRarX bundle, delete the old par2 binary and rename the new one to par2

If necessary, relaunch UnRarX. That it, you're set.

This is an excellent application which has proven to be the most reliable way of finding out what exactly my various media files are made up of. I also like the Pastie integration and use it quite a bit.

There's one small feature I'd really like to see in a future release: a one-click "Copy to Clipboard" button in the toolbar. Right now I have to export to text first and then copy from that. This would make it even simpler to get the info into another app (e.g. a database).

Fantastic assortment of old style games with old style difficulty settings. I really like the bare bones approach to this. If you add Pong to the collection it will make me feel even older.

The Widget works exactly as advertised and sports a sleek, straightforward interface. It even displays the remaining balance on your Sipgate account. The only useful addition I could think of is some kind of Address Book integration.

Also, I had no issues creating a standalone version with Amnesty Singles.
