Developer's website is down. I've located a download mirror at http://www.tucows.com/preview/203861/Dirt-Bike-3D

Game is Carbon PPC though so it's not going to run on OS X 10.7 or later. Shame it hasn't been updated for modern systems, it was a fun game back in the day.

Works as advertised, has several very useful features. Ability to force the integrated GPU when on battery power is essential IMO and should have been implemented by Apple in the first place.

Only negative is that the program takes approximately 25MB RAM on startup, seams absurdly large for something with such a minimal UI.

This is, for me, the only usable free IRC client on the mac. It's like the Safari of IRC clients, completely native and at home on the OS, where-as others feel like poorly done translations.

It's had its share of bugs and stability problems in the past, but the current versions have been smooth sailing for me for a while now.

There's always room for improvement in most any software. I give it 4/5, definitely in the best of its class.

I'm not sure why there's a note saying 10.50 beta is Intel only, there's Intel and Universal releases available at http://www.opera.com/browser/download/ , just click the link to the "latest preview release", the Universal Binary is 23.5MB, which matches the size listed here. The Intel-only version is 15.6MB

That being said, I've tried it and I can say that it's still just more lipstick on the same old pig of a browser. Opera keeps adding nifty new features without fixing the basic brokenness of their clunky user interface. The toolbar customization process for example is still a confusing labyrinth of tabs and checkboxes. Doing a quick test on a couple websites; Opera's JavaScript engine failed some interactions (presumably JavaScript based) where others had no problem, it then proceeded to crash on one webpage, open an automatic error reporter, and when I dismissed this, it had the audacity to ask me if I wanted to set Opera as my default browser. Laughable. At least it automatically re-spawned the browser and took me right back to where I was at when it crashed.

My advice to Opera: Rendering engines aren't your strong suit, switch to WebKit. Then redo your user interface from the ground up to eliminate all this useless clutter and feature-creep (use Safari as your model for doing a clean interface). Then focus on those big innovate new features that everyone else likes to copy, because those are your only redeeming feature.

I find this application a very odd mix of elements at complete odds with each other. So much so that I can't rate it.

The interface is a jarring mix of non-standard behaviors and custom controls with crazy color schemes. It suffers from the clutter of too many 'niche' settings. It almost appears as though the developer crammed in every single feature request that he's received, to the detriment of the program. It needs to be ripped up and redone with a standard *clean* MacOS X interface. So for this I would give the program very low marks.

At the same time, the actual purpose of the app, creating mood soundscapes, is something it achieves with excellence. The included content is great, and there's even more content available at the website. On these points the program gets high marks.

So, redo the interface completely, and you've got a winning app.

There seams to be some confusion about the registration process. So clearly work needs to be done to make the process simpler and more obvious. There is no registration or serial code to enter.

Once you have purchased ImagePlay, all one needs to do is;
* Click the "Purchase/Register" button in the startup window (or choose "Purchase/Register" from the ImagePlay menu)
* Then enter your name, and the email address you used for the PayPal payment
* Now click Register, and you're done.

If you have any Registration problems please send an email (in ImagePlay see menu Help>Email Developer).

Thank you

It should be noted that teleport 1.0.2 is Intel only.

For PPC users, Teleport 1..0.1 can be downloaded from the author's website: http://www.abyssoft.com/software/teleport/downloads/teleport101.zip

This promising app sadly seems to be broken under OS X 10.9

I've contacted the developer to let them know.
