This application offers a powerful implementation of the "direct stiffness method" of matrix analysis (by FEM) of structural elements. As a registered professional engineer, now retired, I regard it a very well documented program, with a clearly ordered entry and editing of the required data and an effective presentation of the results (reactions, displacements and stresses caused by applied forces and deformations), in both tabular and graphical form. And it is free..

Running v 6.0.6, and delighted! Apple's Finder was unreliable: often freezing, probably because I have a large software collection with many items on a window, and sometimes the icons would not show up, or show up fuzzy-looking, which forced me to restart the Finder, at times resort to the nuisance of removing the .DS_Store (folder metadata) files to reset my preferred setting for a window. No more. And that's the tip of the iceberg in terms of features and tools that help me, not only navigate my HDs, but also view and edit settings, permissions, and much more. As an primeval user of Apples (since the Apple ][..) I have rarely been as impressed with a software tool as I have with Path Finder: Hearty kudos to its developers!

Your suspicion is verified: I have ben running Snow Leopard v 10.6.8 and the problem with the Apple Finder recurs when I switch off Path Finder. My wife runs Lion and she has no problems with the Apple Finder.

Hurrah! A trusty terminal emulation program to access serial ports is back. ZTerm is less expensive and easier to Update (when I upgrade my Mac) than MacWise, better handles the initialization my Radio-Teletype TNCs, and offers all the features I need. Now, I could use a Macro GUI (buttons at the bottom of the screen), although keyboard Macros do well.. Overall, ZTerm gets my nod of approval and endorsement .... hooray!

I'm delighted to see this long time favorite return (presently in version 4.9.10), updated for OSX. Mr. Bender has always been available, open and responsive to suggestions and bug concerns. I particularly appreciate its scriptability, including the assortment of scripts already available from other programmers. Tex-Edit successfully competes with current full-featured word processors, and the best part is its price !

It remains a useful productive tool for the lighter word processing I more frequently do: minimalist, tools I am familiar with quickly accessible, predictably good printing results, among others... Gets the small job done, works for me.

The "Requirements" state it'll run under OS 10.5 and above. However, in my Intel miniMac running 10.5.8 the notice appears: "You cannot use this version of the application Abe with this version of Mac OS X."

This version has finally corrected some bugs. However, there is nothing well made that cannot be enhanced or improved: it bothers me that I often need to reshuffle a game. What if there's an option in the game's preferences for 'automatic reshuffle' so reshuffling doesn't affect the 'time' score so much… just an idea..

With this version of Flash my MacPro crashes: "auto script crash" meaning Safari (under Snow Leopard 10.4.6) freezes and I have to Force Quit it... I uninstalled it i.e. removed the plug-ins from /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/ ... and Presto, crashes gone..

With my recent upgrade to 10.6.2 I have need to know which applications use only 32-bit kernel extensions and which run only 64-bit kexts, to help me decide whether to boot the native 64-bit Kernel or the old 32-bit one. Anyone posted a list?

(1) Captivating game, can keep you at it for hours if you play well. (2) There is no help ... says “coming soon” (3) The instructions should inform that when you select a ball to be moved to make sure you have a clear path to the square you wish to place it on -- meaning no other balls block the path there ... or you will not be allowed to place it there. (4) overall simple yet challenging fun.
