Both give 5-star reviews on 28 Mar 2013.

I can't imagine that the developer of Roccat (Runecats) will be very happy with such fans, who become members solely to award 5 stars... with such suspect behavior you will more likely hurt the developer than help.
Imo Roccat is good enough on its own, doesn't need this kind of "help".

Having a ScanSnap S500M, I went and read Fujitsu's (ScanSnap) support site, to see what to expect with the upcoming 10.8 (Mountain Lion).
I was shocked to read: "compatibility status of ScanSnap S500M applications with OS X v10.8 (Mountain Lion):
ScanSnap Manager for Mac -- Not supported -- Due to the end of support" ...
So, 'the end of support' ... I feel bad for my trusty old ScanSnap S500M... (S510M is announced to be supported though).

Andrewm8, Thanks for the tip. I'll try to get hold of Mountain Lion now (or wait until Apple officially releases ML) and see if I'm in luck also.. keeping fingers crossed

Well I installed Mountain Lion, and my ScanSnap S500M appears to still be fully functional using ScanSnap Version 2.2L15. That's a relief.
I also tried to install Version 2.2L16 that's supposed to support the S510M under Mouintain Lion but not the S500M, but it looks like it just works with my S500M too! So I will keep v 2.2L16 installed as long as my ScanSnap scans merrily away ... fingers still keeping crossed, though.

I got an e-mail from Metakine today saying that only this weekend, until June 19, 2011, I can transfer my license of DVDRemaster 7.0 to the Mac App Store for $4.99 (or € 3.99 in my case, for European users).

Though I did feel a bit compelled (as in: why should I pay for this since I already have a license for DVDRemaster Pro), a sense of urgency , brought on by, as the email states, the "limited time opportunity" to "transfer my license" to the MAS,
made me decide to do so (also because I will be too busy this weekend to contact Metakine and ask them about this hurry to transfer in this way the license to the MAS on such short notice, even with the incentive of 90% off the price.)

After downloading from the MAS and restarting, I now have version 7.0.3 (!), where before I had 7.0.4. As mentioned, I already had a license for DVDRemaster Pro. After restarting, there now is no mention of a license or my name, as licensee. Maybe because from now on it is being handled by the Mac App Store?
Anyway, I am wondering when I will be able to again update (via the MAS) to V 7.0.4 again...

Just started to try the demo. And within minutes stopped because it was impossible for me to correctly set it up.
The program chose the Dutch screen/manual (OK, I do have the Dutch version of Mac OS X 10.6.3). So far so good. Then, however, I had to pick the correct keyboard. A choice of two Dutch keyboards: the one with Dutch QWERTY or with Dutch (Flemish) AZERTY layout.
It became clear that the program is not up-to-date, since the keyboard layout differed too much (e.g. the Return key) from the current Apple keyboards (mine is from last year, a Dutch chicklet-style keyboard with numerical block.
To make trying out this program comfortable enough, users should be able to pick the correct keyboard layout. Hopefully the developer will have a closer look at current layouts and add these to the preferences.
What I do like about this program is the help with correct finger position. A program like aTypeTrainer4Mac still doesn't have this possibility, as far as I know.
