I wanted to try Todooist, downloaded and opened it and saw a web page with many missing images. :-(

Do I need to register for a web service to use it?
I don't want a task management application which need to sync with any web server, I want my data to stay locally on my Mac.

Can I do that with Todoist?

Keka has been working for me very good for a long time as the standard application for expanding zip archives etc.

Recently I had a problem: When trying to unzip the text editor EDDIE 2.1 ( with keka , I got a prompt requiring a password (although there is no password set) and could not unzip the zip file.
(with the built-in archiving tool in OS 10.6 it works perfectly.)

Kind regards

porticus 1.8.1 (which was working some time ago) now says that there are no ports installed, but the directory /opt/local exists and is > 3 GB big...

is there something broken?

All in all TidyUp is extremely helpful for me sorting out the "mess" of Duplicates, drag&drop--backups etc. on my hard drives.

I recently installed the new version 2.2.3 and used it for scanning some large hard drives 100-300 GB (about 180.000 files were scanned).

It happened several times to me that TidyUp suddenly crashed. (I'm sorry, I can't see a certain action when that happens - I'm searching for big folders containing duplicates, creating a new basket and move or trash the content).
Does anyone else encounter this behaviour?

Does QuickName work on Snow Leopard OS 10.6.2??

I've used QuickName 1.3.2 on OS 10.4.11 successfully, now upgraded to Snow Leopard and have some problems:

I've a folder full of images IMG_3401.jpg, IMG_3402.jpg....
and I want to rename them in Text_p000.jpg, Text_p002.jpg, Text_p004.jpg etc.

I did that on OS 10.4 with no problems (if I'm not absolutely mistaken), but now the order of the renamed files is completely messed up.

Can anyone help? QuickName is a very useful and powerful software - I'd like to continue using it...

BTW: many thanks to the developer of QuickName for the great software!
