Excellent free app. Quite similar to the $8 iAddressX. Upside, a bit faster and even more user friendly. And free. Downside, doesn't have a couple of features (like auto-dial) that iAddressX has.

But overall a terrific, super easy to use, fast link to Address Book info.

Tried downloading this several times in the last two weeks, and keep getting an error message saying 'too many clients'.

To suggest an alternate: The free SkalMac Tuner is a great, easier to use, intuative standard tuner.

This has far more non-standard tuning options, but for someone like me, who simply wants an easy way to tune their guitar I find it clunky and annoying.

But I'm not a high-end musician, and I don't generally need non-standard tuning. Based on some comments here. it's clearly a boon for the right person. But for many it will be overkill.

Works just fine on my G5 iMac. Very minor delay starting up.

Very cool, very unique. I used it as my main screensaver for quite a while, and got lots of questions and comments on it.

Personally I found the art a little grim after a while seeing it everyday, but that's a taste thing, not quality.

But worth checking out to see the rare screensaver that tries something radically different.

This an amazingly funny little app. My wife and I got laughing so hard that we both ached. It's one of those things that's so silly, so stupid that it just keeps building. You can't believe you're lauging at it, but you can't stop either.

While I use and like BuddyPop (see review below), if you want a freebee that will give you equally quick access to your Address Book info, I recommend ABMenu. Lives in the menubar, very simple, very fast. Just missing a few bells and whistles that BuddyPop has...

Bit the bullet and paid the $20.

It was a close call. The couple of times I needed it, it did save me some time and effort, but I found I didn't call on it all that often.

Also, the search process was still a little slow, at least on my computer. In the time History Hound took sorting through all my pages, I could be halfway through a new google search.

But there were those couple of times, on a subject I had been researching over time, that it was a great help getting back to the pages I needed.

Fine, works well, but as noted below, Hardware Growler does the exact same thing for free...

I've always loved Stand, but noticed that after my last couple of Safari updates (I'm running 5.05 on 10.6.8 Intel i7 iMac) my Safari, always a memory hog went from hog to insane, quickly jumping to using 3 of my 4 gb of memory. Someone suggested taking out Stand, and while Safari still uses way too much memory, it now seems to be maxing out at about 1.5 gb. Any suggestions on how to use Stand and not turn Safari into a memory monster? Thanks!

Have had and loved ClamX for years. Donated several times. Recently (finally) updated to Snow Leopard from 10.4.11. Updated to ClamX 2.0.6. For whatever reason cannot complete virus definition updates. Starts then stops, then I get an 'error 54' code. Then a request to try again (ad infinitum) Have uninstalled and re-installed both the program and engine several times, along with posting on the ClamX forum, but so far no luck. Also no luck tracking down what the error codes mean. Wondering if anyone here has any ideas how to get this unstuck?

The URL of the ClamX Forum - as noted above - is :

BTW - my problem is resolved. It appears it was a firewall problem in the hotel I was staying at and working out of. When I returned home, all worked fine.
