From Developer: The problem with the Installer certificate has been fixed. We tried to early-adopt the new code signing stuff in Mountain Lion and it backfired. Looks like some users ran into it and not others. WIll get it fixed before code signing shows up again in NS.

Glad it's working for you now - we thought the testing was thorough enough, but the certificate failiure seemed to be affecting only a subset of users. I have not yet determined the criteria for failure, but we'll get the signing done correctly before Mountain Lion (where it'll be a requirement.)

I'm not sure what the post below is referring to. The NetShade URL goes to the NetShade page, http://www.netshade.net/ , and Caravan is a mail server I run for myself. I don't know how any of this has relevance with regard to NetShade's security. The service NetShade provides is simple and unique: it routes your web traffic through an anonymous proxy server. I think it performs this task very effectively and many users agree. I'm always disheartened to see negative reviews on NetShade, because in my opinion many of them are off-base. Of course I did write the program so my opinion is not exactly neutral. NetShade does enjoy a solid user base consisting mostly of satisfied customers. Unfortunately, as is often the case with software, those users are not the ones posting on these sites. I hope users will continue to try the software- you can evaluate it for free, then purchase it if you like it, and if you decide you don't want it after all, just ask for a refund (within 60 days of purchase).

A new version of iBatt is under development. iBatt 2.0 will be a complete rewrite of the software, and will support new MacBooks. Graphing and views are dramatically improved. Network support is as it was in version 1, but with added fields for new values that can be retrieved from the newer Apple portables, such as battery Manufacturer and Manufacture Date. Release date is TBD, but before Feb. 20. Pricing is TBD, but comparable to version 1's pricing.

Syzzygy and Dom21: The NetShade Proxy server doesn't log any activity. I know there's no actual way for me to prove this, but here are the two lines from NetShade's Squid proxy configuration file which disable all logging:

cache_access_log none
cache_store_log none

I'm a pretty ardent champion of online privacy, and I wouldn't want to keep any tracking info on my servers. I have gotten requests from people to try to track down users of the NetShade proxy (usually webmasters who didn't like what somebody blogged,) and of course I am both unable and unwilling to track these people down.

I'm sorry I didn't get back to your previous inquiries. NetShade generates a ton of customer inquiries (much more than my other programs, due I think to its unique purpose,) and at times I get buried in them. If you resend your inquiriy through the Contact Us page, I will get back to you.

That's very misleading. There is no command-line tool, nor combination of command-line tools that does what NetShade does. NetShade is a client-server proxy management system with global distributed proxy testing. Yes you can do a lot with shell commands if you're very technically inclined, but no you cannot make NetShade out of shell commands.

There are a lot of OS X apps out there which are nothing more than a simple interface for a shell command. NetShade is not one of those apps. It's a very big, very real application consisting of over 10,000 lines of C, Objective-C and PHP code. You would have known that if you'd even taken the time to read the full product description on MacUpdate, let alone actually download and try it.
