Significant security vulnerability discovered in versions prior to 2.2.1. Upgrading is highly encouraged.

NIST security report:

The beta expired in 2006 and will no longer let you play any tracks. No new version since. The developer's website has no info (whatsoever - just an empty web page template).

It's too bad that this was abandoned. If anyone is in touch with the developer, maybe they could recommend a non-time-restricted re-release of the beta, or even open-sourcing it.

Note that this has been updated to version 0.7.1 (on December 20, 2007). The Macupdate download link isn't working (as of this writing), so go to the More Information link to find the download.

The link to version 1.2.1 downloads a completely different program - Smultron.

The correct link is:
[Version 2.0.1]

This is better than free because it has saved me from overdue fines. The red star visual reminder for books coming due is fantastic. The green star for requested books becoming available on hold is great, too.

This is a very useful and helpful tool. Highly recommended (just like I highly recommend taking advantage of, and otherwise supporting, public libraries).

I was all set to download and update the new version until I read that this release "Added support for web authors to disable 'save as' feature in web browser."

That's a terrible change from my view. Removing control from the user is part of the whole "digital rights management" (DRM) effort of large corporations.

To the Flip4Mac developer: please give control of this otherwise excellent software back to the users. Thanks.

The MySQL package for Mac OS X makes the basic installation procedure a snap (as opposed to the old process that required building and installing it from the command line). The System Preferences pane is handy, too - although it could do with providing access to a few more options, too.

You still have to do a bit of manual setup, but it's getting easier and easier.

Be sure to get the free MySQL Administrator application (also from MySQL AB) for a Mac OS X graphical front end to administration of MySQL.

I consider this tool essential for my workstation. I use it for things like tracking my hours while contracting (I don't really need one of those fancy time-tracking applications). I also drop in interesting snippets (like books, bands, movies to check out) while reading stuff on the web.

It's also handy for those doing the "Getting Things Done" (GTD) style of personal time management. A very convenient spot for all of those lists.

Personally, I don't bother with the mouse-based activation. I set it to open/close using the F16 key, and checked the "Open only with hotkeys" and "Close only with hotkeys" checkboxes in the preferences. That way, it never accidently pops up.

Having the option to set a hot-corner (like Exposé and the Screensaver) instead of along the side of the monitor might get me to use mouse activation again.
