Dumb question: does this work at all with Safari 3 on Tiger 10.4.11?

The developer seems to have disappeared. There has been no further releases, not even nightly builds, and when I try to get on the developer's website, I get this message:

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Too bad. I like this little browser and was looking forward to another great alternative to Safari.

This software has has 2 very good features I can not laud loudly enough:

1) batch processing
2) HTML export of the EXIF information

The processing buttons in the window are in plain sight, and I like the little "this is what EOM is doing right now" message on the bottom of the window.

But here's the ugliness:

This application bashes it's sticky, dirty Windows heritage right in the face!!

Why in the world is the File menu IN THE WINDOW ???? This is VERBOTEN by the Mac GUI guidelines. (Even open source developers tend to copy Windows without a second thought when porting to Mac OS X.)

ALL MAC OS X MENUS and menu options BELONG IN THE MENUBAR AND **NEVER** IN a Windows-style menu at the top of each individual window. This developer needs to remove the window File menu immediately and put it where it belongs!!

What the developer chooses to do with contextual menus are up to him... AS LONG AS ALL THE CONTEXTUAL MENU ITEMS ARE PRIMARILY IN THE MENU BAR FIRST AND FOREMOST.

Mac users expect things to be in the right Mac place, especially in simple applications. There's no reason I should have had to search for 5-10 minutes just to find the File menu where it wasn't supposed to be. Had it been in the Menu bar, I would have seen much more quickly that the process buttons handily perform every function this application is programmed to do.

Even in a simple application like this one, a Help menu in the Menu Bar is still a good idea, if only to explain how simple the application is or even just what it does and how, without having to open a browser to see a web page.

Feature request:
Drag and drop of photos or files onto the application window would be a nice Mac-like touch, too, by the way.

As an FYI: The reason I tried this application is that I'm really looking for a freeware application to EDIT EXIF information on an image file. There's a project which might differentiate this application from, say, EXIF Viewer, for example.

I like this little app. I just used it to write a Flickrmail. I like its nostalgic look: black background with green text. I love that.

I got the same message from Little Snitch. What's your point?

I checked with Spotlight, and I launched the Activity Monitor. I could not find "DockInsteminator" by name or by PID#. Even the Dock PID# doesn't match the alert. All I can find in "All Processes" is:

242 DockFun!
173 Dock

Googling DockInseminator found me nothing except your comment here. In other words, I can not find any other reference to this app online. Do you know something we don't?

How about some specifics. What does this have to do with DockFun! ??

I've had DockFun! for several months now. This week is the first time I've gotten the warning.

I still don't see the connection between DockFun! and DockSeminator. I can't find it anywhere on my hard drive.

Have you gotten in touch with OBdev ?? If their product is issuing the warning, they had better know something more about it.

The game doesn't "get killed" when you switch to another window/app. It just pauses the timeclock.

Pick up the game where you left off by pressing Command-P

(no, it doesn't print)

PS. You can back date to your hearts content, so feel free to write your autobiography, too, with Journler!!

OK, time to put my stars where my mouth is.

Along with Safari and iChat AV, this app is *always* open on my desktop.

I'm no developer, so my review is purely from the standpoint of a consumer. And as I said before, this is the very first donationware I have *ever* paid for.

Journler has been an eye-opener for me. It has gotten me to think of communicating not only with myself, journal-wise, but with others more creatively (with voice emails, for example) that are recorded right into my entries and then emailed from Journler. (No more worrying about accidental deletions in Mail.)

With blog support, highlighters, tabs, word processing, password protection, encryption... well, there just isn't enough room to write it all here. You'll just have to try it. It's better than any commercial app out there... period.

And, of course, it's very "Mac-like", as it should be.

Phil Dow is also one of the most pleasant developers I have ever had the pleasure of corresponding with. He's one of those developers who takes good care of you. He makes me pround to be a Mac user.

I have a confession to make. Journler is the first donationware I have *ever* paid for
