A real life saver. I was trying to hook up an HP w2338h monitor to a MacBook with a mini-DVI to HDMI cable. It should have worked, but System Preferences would not give me the monitor's native resolution (1920 x 1080, 60 hZ, not interlaced) as a choice.

Then I remembered using this application to set an old CRT to a higher refresh rate years ago. I had to buy a new license because I no longer had access to that computer or email account, but it was worth it.

It's not completely straight forward to set up, but only because there are lots of options that are beyond my level of understanding, but I read the instructions on the website and only changed what I was sure I wanted to change -- I preserved the system resolutions and added one timing setting at 1920 x 1080, 60 hZ, not interlaced, without changing any thing else. It worked perfectly.

If you know your computer is capable of supporting your monitor's native resolution, but System Preferences won't allow you to do it, this program is worth a try.

Fantastic! No problems running this on my old Quicksilver G4. Clever and sometimes frustrating puzzles that make you feel like you really accomplished something when you get the answer and see it in all its 3D glory.

One request: More puzzles! I've played for about an hour each day for the last three days and I only have two puzzles left to beat. More, more I say! How about even larger grids? 6x6?

I guess the number of puzzles is a feature, so you only get 4 stars for that. Everything else is 5 star work.

Thanks! This revision fixes the erroneous reporting of my incoming TCP port as closed despite correct firewall and router settings.

I think it was only the reporting in preferences that was wrong, because download speeds were fine. Now everything is kosher.

Hands down the fastest bittorrent client on the Mac.

Fantastic! Works as advertised and very stable so far. This program is the best of the GTD programs I've seen as far as inuitive ease of use. I jumped right in and can set up projects, contexts and tasks very quickly. I feel myself getting more organized every day.

Two features would make this nearly perfect: the ability to delegate (preferably to someone in my address book with a link to their info) and the ability to add a link to a project and not just a task. I don't know how that would work at the UI level, but sometimes I want to link an entire directory to a project without linking each file within that directory to a specific task.

Fantastic customer service! After running the demo myself for a little while I decided to purchase the software for our lab to use on one computer. We only do basic gel analysis and this seems to work well and be easy to use.

I found a permissions bug on Friday and a new version was posted on Tuesday -- now every thing is fine!

Thanks much to the folks at FragDance!

Please, oh please make this work with Core 2 Duo MacBooks that have the 802.11n enabler installed! I can't see what my connection strength is to my new 802.11n Airport Basestation. But worse still, I can't monitor my connection strength when I am on the road and using 802.11g, aside from Apple's inadequate menu item. Help us, please!
