My oh my. Seeing that this is the only way I can get a comment to the developer to let him know how bad this program actually is. I have tried the support forums on their website, and my posts get screened before they appear. I have tried looking for an email address to contact him, no luck there either. When is Flagship going to realize that the interface that Ventrilo is currently toting around is absolutely god-awful. You have duplicated functionality everywhere, lacking basic features such as:
Window Resizing
Window Management on-screen
Window Placement on launch and exit
As well as any sort of a hint of compliance with the apple interface guidelines. By far this is definitely the worst interface I have ever had to use. Also from what I have seen, it has never changed.

I would normally apologize for being rude and brash about this, because no developer likes to have his/her work talked down about. But frankly, your inability to actually accept that the interface design is pretty poor, or any sort of feedback on your site without having to screen it to prevent someone's opinion being heard of a designer's feelings getting hurt is unacceptable from the stance of a developer. But what am I saying. Ofcourse you must be right. I am so silly to think that someone that has been using Mac OSs for the past 16 years might have a bit of insight as to how an interface should be designed...oh no...Definitely not. No. The windows OS programmer definitely knows heaps more about the mac interface guidelines and functions than an actual OS X programmer and long-time user.

Silly Silly me.

What can I say? It is the best. I have tried using other applications such as DEVONthink, and they are just to large and bulky to be running all the time. ShoveBox has a low profile even on my iMac G5 with 512MB of RAM. Quick-jot is very useful for saving small snippets of text or notes I may have written down somewhere in a document. I was a big user of Stickies in OS 9, and it really has not been the same for me since OS 9. I could compare this to Stickies. Hotkeys make it efficient on screen usage, so I don't have additional windows open that I don't need. The mobile app is a great companion, so I can take my brain with me, and organization and searching is a breeze with the ability to set up smart rules on what you are importing. I often save a url as a web archive so I can read it later, I have smart rules set up to check the URL if it is from a news site, if it is, ShoveBox saves that to a different folder from my normal web archive dump folder. Very good app, I highly recommend it.

I have recieved feedback about wanting a CS4 suite dock, I can provide you with this, I just need a little help collecting application names.

Please go here:

and post the pictures of CS4 suite applications so I can get the complete name and make a CS4 Dock Suite. I would like to put this out as soon as possible, but I don't own any of the CS4 applications yet, so any help would be appreciated.

Alternately, you could donate enough to allow me to buy the complete CS4 Masters collection so I can do this :)
