Lifetime Mac user. Never owned, or even thought about owning, a Windows PC.

Your little Smilies and ratings in most cases do not properly reflect people's characters. In my case I have difficulty with grammar and proper use of the language, this has to do with my learning disability. I was rejected from formal education and everything I know, including reading, writing and arithmetic, and computer science, I have taught myself.

Though Hotspot Shield works at many public wi-fi hotspots, it unfortunately is useless on almost all pubic libraries' wi-fi because those places block the ports which Hotspot Shield uses.

I have been using Stuf from the very first release version.
Version 1 was a boon to me. One reason is because the menubar icon indicates at clipboard usage. Version 2 has lost this very handy feature. In addition, version 2 has a giant icon at every entry in the clipboard's history.
The only drawback to version 1 that I can see, is that it is slower on first use after a reboot/login. I have downgraded back to version 1.56

I give version 2, two and one-half stars

AMPPS worked for me the first two times I used it.

• On the third use PHP refused to run.

• User must have a continuous ongoing internet connection otherwise AMPPS refuses to work as a webserver! On the other hand Apple's built-in webserver, does work while offline. I was hoping to be able to use some of AMPPS advanced features while disconnected from the web and still be able to edit/test my websites before uploading to my host.

• Another thing I disliked about AMPPS, the application has a presence in the Dock, Menubar and a window, none of which the user can dismiss.

This software, in my opinion, is complete junk. It seems to be marketed in the same manner in which questionable windoze software is marketed.

Having said that, a friend of mine who has switched to the Mac from Windoze, asked me what I thought about MacKeeper. I told him it was crapware and advised him not to buy it. He disregarded everything I said and bought it anyway saying, they told him he could get his money back if he didn't like it. He immediately began to have new and numerous problems with his Mac. He has since tried to get a refund but they won't respond.

Love it!

For those who like this little application, but don't like the menubar icon:
1. Select Hide from the menubar icon
2. In the Finder go to ~/Library/Preferences/
3. Select "com.threemagination.capssee.plist"
4. Get Info (cmd+i)
5. Check the "lock" box in the Get Info window. Now all subsequent launches of CapSee will be hidden.

_Do not use Plone_!! It will destroy your Applications!!
Just today, I downloaded and tried to install Plone. I Did the standard install and it failed with an error, it said. As a result, it wiped out 99% of my Applications in the Applications folder and 99% in the Utilities folder - 45 GB worth!!
Thank God for backups! So far it doesn't appear to have touched any other data, just that in the Applications folder.

The link to the developers website causes the application to download. When clicking the developer's name link, the page returns "nothing found for developer:+Nagy +Dávid".

Very good little application. I see no way to account for daylight-savings-time (aka summer-time). This makes the application off by one hour during daylight-savings-time.

Easy to input ones own locations, although one must have access to latitude/longitude coordinates for this.

When I copy an applescript that has been made to work in the background using this tool, iBackground Scripts, from one disk to another the Finder tells me the applescript has been corrupted, and the script will no longer function.
