These so-called software jockeys STILL can't get the Sparkle sub-directory alias trick to work. What does that tell us about how much else they still haven't figured out?

Same with Evernote 5.1.4 under ML 10.8.4... SBBoD upon launch.

Their tech support, with whom I've been in touch, seem to be unable to isolate my problem. So for now, bye-bye Evernote. Bye-bye Skitch.

Latest 5.2.0 version seems to work fine, and their Tech support has been very responsive in resolving this problem (a lot faster than I've been acknowledging them).

Even though I understand the pressing concerns of the American Memorial long weekend, the demonstrated incapacity of the latest release suggests a calculated disregard for the Macintosh client base.

Sorry to reply to myself. In the meantime, until you get the Mac side of things woking, period, why shouldn't I try to get rid of the iOS side of things that are no longer doing me any good?

As well as Evernote on the iOS side, Skitch, on both the Mac OS X and iOS sides, while I''m at it. There. I''m done.

Not a crash, but upon launch Evernote goes off into a world of its own, accompanied by the Spinning Beach-Ball of Death, and never returns to the real world.

Currently (2013-04-10 12:53 EDT), v2.0._6_ is what gets downloaded from the front-door page of the Dropbox site.

And yes, it still installs with wonky userIDs when the installer is run from a non-admin account.

Dropbox.app v2.0.0 *still* installs itself in /Applications with (still unknown) UserID "507". If this is by design it's (still) bletcherous. If this is (still) in error it's (still) pure and simple sloppiness. And this service (still) claims to be ready for prime time?

Anyone else see Little Snitch getting upset from time-2-time after running the Help system in Skim 1.4.2?

YAT (Yet Another Thing): On my system, running ML 10.8.2, Db 1.6.16 installed Dropbox.app in /Applications with UserID 507... there is no UserID 507 on my system! It didn't seem to be doing any harm, but I changed it all to root/admin anyway. Anyone else seeing this?

Under ML 10.8.2, using the image Import function, clicking the 'Save' or 'Skip' button results in a crash:

Exception Name: NSInvalidArgumentException

ML 10.8.2 Finder sez: "Password Gorilla" is damaged and can't be opened. You should move it to the Trash.

Running MacBookPro6,2; Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4 (11E53)

(1) Must be launched from an Admin account to install the new privileged helper tool.

(2) Does not honor the "Move Language Files to Trash" preference setting.

(3) No longer capable of having individual apps dropped on it (either in the Finder or running in the Dock). Throws up a non-modal window that says: "Nothing done / Monolingual is stopping without making any changes. Your OS has not been modified. OK?" It's the whole volume or nothing.

Sadness.

For folks with both a Lion Recovery Partition and a TechToolPro eDrive partition already installed, Lion Recovery Update (running under 10.7.2) may report that it is unable to create a Recovery Partition and offer you the 'option' of Cancelling the installation.

My workaround was to mount the existing Lion Recovery Partition, using Disk Utility, and then run Lion Recovery Update. Seems to have worked like a charm.

The Internet Plugin does not appear to play nicely with case-sensitive volumes. See < http://code.google.com/p/earth-issues/issues/detail?id=647 >

In short, there is currently no way to get the Internet Plugin installed onto a case-sensitive volume.
