So this vector graphics program that I occasionally used, has turned into an astrology program? You've got to be kidding me! Astrology? seriously? I just moved this program to the trash- I'll find another vector graphics program that's not full of woo woo nonsense.

Given the impending implosion of iWeb, I've been researching a suitable replacement for some time. I was completely unaware that Freeway Express even existed until I saw a mention of it over on MacRumors. What I wanted was something that was a step up from iWeb, but still had a lot of the ease of use. It was also important to me that I not be limited by pre-packaged themes that couldn't be modified. What I've found in Freeway Express is a solution that meets all of my requirements. As others have said, it can initially be a bit overwhelming to start using FE, but with a few days of study (the downloadable tome of a manual really helps) and playing around it can be mastered even by a web novice such as myself. In the past 3 days, I've been able to learn enough that I've almost recreated (and significantly improved) my old site originally designed on iWeb. Thanks for the software, Softpress! BTW: Check it out on Apple's App Store- it can be had for less than $30 as of this writing.

Just a word to the wise: while Quicken Essentials may run under Lion, the "Quicken File Exchange Utility" does not. This means if you want to update your old Quicken data, you still have to be running Leopard or Snow Leopard. I ended up having to pull out an external firewire drive and install Snow Leopard on it just to run this one application.

Decoder Pro is THE solution to pain free decoder programing for your DCC equipped trains. No need to learn hexadecimal or memorized lots of CV's, just connect your DCC system and program away using a clean and easily understood interface.

If you have the right hardware (computer+wireless router+iPod Touch/iPhone) you can use your iPhone/iPod Touch as a wireless throttle. You just need to purchase the WiThrottle app for iPhone and away you go. Way cheaper than a wireless DCC throttle and system from Digitrax or NCE.

Circuit Defenders is a fun little game and can be quite the challenge up to a point. In the "classic" game, there is what I'd describe a "hump" in playability. During the start, you have to be strategic about tower choice and placement as you are earning limited money for destroying the enemies. Since the value of each enemy destroyed goes up with every level, eventually you can earn so much money that for all practical purposes it becomes unlimited. At higher levels you end up earning money faster than you can build and upgrade towers. This leads to the game actually becoming easier the longer it goes on. If you make it past level 100, you can essentially play forever.

The game can really be taxing on computers even with fast processors and graphics cards. At higher levels when there's a lot going on, the frame rate drops dramatically. My 3.06GHz iMac (ATI Radeon HD 4850) struggles to stay above 15 FPS, and on my 2010 MacBook Pro 2.4GHz (NVIDIA GeForce 320M) it's not unusual to have it drop to less than 5 FPS.
