best app ever, massive productivity boost in being able to see what's in the background

does anybody know how to change the colour of the 2d dock (preferably back to white, or my personal favourite transparent (as TransparentDock used to allow for tiger)

this allows the white border to be removed http://zydev.info/simpledock/ , but its still black and it still has a huge border around it (the gap between the icons in the dock and the edge of the dock)


seem to indicate that the color is hard coded into the dock its self

a great complement to quicksilver is proxy


takes a bit of time to realize its full power

these two programs make my mac system complete

(oh yeah and if you are considering weather to download quicksilver - its what particular plugins you want to install for it (in its preferences panel) not weather you want it - trust me you do)

im not one to unjustifiably rubbish programs, and many of the google apps, like google earth are amazing

this however is not

it is totally devoid of any features, it wont open any files except those from google video - and i could not even get it to work with them - kept saying connection error (even though i think that it is based on vlc - that many of you may know plays about every format in the world)

i was hopping for a vlc player with a slightly nicer interface and with integrated google video search that would let me view all the video from google video in thumbnail, list with customisable columns etc....
instead it just send me to the goggle video page - i then have to watch some of the clip while it loads in safari before choosing two options to get it to attempt to load in google video player

overall - dreadful - not what i expect from goggle, its propiariatry, very poor, very closed and works badly

come on google - you can do much better - a player just for google video and is very poor does not help anybody

Absolutely amazing!!!!!!!
it lets me do custom popups of what ever info i like - eg showing who the new email iv just received came from or the itunes tune iv just jumped to (with artwork)
but it does far more than that. Any of many actions in the os you can attach any of the pre built actions to- amazing!!!

this is instantly in my top apps (along with quicksilver and safari stand)

yes you a correct Arglborps - mac os x tiger does have its owne vnc server - but OSXvnc has many advantages to it:

1) it will alow all the users of the computer to log in and control the system at the same time - not just the one user that is currently logged in. These other users can connect and use the computer with out affecting the currently logged in user. I am not sure that i have clearly explained this but i find it great. I use it by logging in remotly to my user but leaving the login window aprarant on the screen as i don not want to leave my computer loged in and exposed - but still want to remote control it

2) Mac os x tiger's vnc client did not seem to allow me to use the java applet vnc client that i wanted to use. It would show me garbage then give some error. The advantage of the java aplet client is that you can configure web sharing for your computer - then from any computer in the world go to the web address of your computer and be able to log in and control your computer - you do not need to bring a windows or alike client with you and if the computer you are using is a public one where running your own apps is disabled then its the only way to get to your comp

this page http://www.redstonesoftware.com/osxvnc/OSXvnc.html has a small section on it & a link to download

things you will need to bar in mind
1)the index page in the download must be edited (or copied and edited) so that the port is the one for the screen you want to access - often 5901 - the default 5900 wont work and will give errors

2) if you are behind a router then it will need port forwarding to be enabled to your local ip address((usualy 192.168.1.xx) for ports :
80 for the web-server
and 5900, 5901 and more if you assignee other ports to the other users

3) if you are running a firewall then these ports will have to be opened up

4) if you have a dynamic ip address (and can't easily get a static one) they you should obtain a web address from a service like dyndns.com - then get a mac dns update client like DynDNS Updater http://macupdate.com/info.php/id/19006 so that you can easily connect to your computer

hope this helps people - step 2,3 and 4 above are generic to all vnc users - not just ones using osxvnc or using the javavnc client - although having a nice web address does make getting to your java applet client on your computer easier
