Is this developer still alive? I love this utility to death and was very excited for Butler 5... but that was supposed to be months and months ago. The website has disappeared, the other websites he has don't show any updates on anything that are recent... what's going on here?

It would appear that my iTunes 7.7 problem was fixed with the iTunes 7.7.1 update. Yay! Now I can get the most out of this great piece of software. Keep up the good work; can't wait for version 5.

I love the interface of this application and it's by far the most enjoyable Mac-like IRC client I've used. X-Chat Aqua is too clunky for me, and I had some freakish problems with Colloquy. It's overall a great application for everyday IRC users. However, if you don't plan to buy this soon after you get the trial version, you may be unconvinced well before your 15 days are up regardless of how much you enjoy the application. I will probably purchase this software anyway, but the nagging employed by this application over the course of the 15-day trial is just plain disgusting. The first half or so, it'll be fine and you'll barely even notice, other than the "__ days left. Register today!" text at the top-right which I have no problem with. However, on the eighth day or so, Linkinus will start randomly harassing you to register the software with annoying pop-up messages redundantly alerting you that the software is indeed shareware and giving you two options: "Go", a link to register it, and "Not Yet", which you'd click to continue your trial peacefully... or so you'd think. In the last couple days of the trial, clicking the "Not Yet" button seems to, without warning, disconnect you from all of your IRC connections. It's this type of nagging and harassment from a trial version of software that convinces me not to buy it no matter how much I might love the application, and I can't imagine anyone else being too eager to purchase it after these alerts have annoyed them enough. Deactivating it after 15 days and telling the user to purchase or quit and having a little text thing at the top-right like you already do is more than enough, thank you.

Extremely suspicious activity going on here. Ever since installing the latest update (Build 0.9.533.423, which does not seem to be listed on MacUpdate yet) I'm getting a lot of blocked attempts to connect to various IP addresses. I do not have a torrent active, nor do I currently have any downloads active or paused. Why is Folx trying to make connections when I do not have a download active? Quitting the utility until I figure out why.

Fabulous app; been using it for over a year and couldn't live without it. However, it doesn't seem that the iTunes music library fully works with iTunes 7.7. You can still play albums and playlists, but it doesn't seem that you can play individual tracks anymore. It doesn't work for me, anyway. Anyone else having this problem?
