So, I've got a realplayer updater background app that periodically cranks away at 100k down / PER second...(thanks menu-meters)

What the **** is this for! Stop running high-bandwidth background apps without my knowledge or permission.

look in library/app support/realnetworks/... you will find what I'm talking about.

I just un-installed this app and encourage others to do so as well until REAL takes privacy seriously and is more transparent about WHAT it needs 100k a second for.

how hard could it possibly be to do this for Aperture 1.5??? Why is Apple treating iphoto users better then Aperture 1.5 users?

After trying a number of solutions... I found that this set of instructions got the stock 5.0.45 install working with Leopard.

The key is to start the server first and then run VincentJ's code...

note... there should be a space before the"-s"
sudo ln -s /tmp/mysql.sock /var/mysql/mysql.sock

Any Word on whether this works with 10.5?

I have created a decent CSS "web gallery" that nicely displays the output from this tool. Check it out for sample and the source code...

updated version available...

sheesh... let's try to be a little more supportive of indie (sp?) mac developers!

I like the beige/orange folders... why not go with a wood-themed (i.e. garageband) themed version? That would seem to me to be a better fit.

I'm not an audiofile by any means... but I could selectively remove pieces of sound from a recording I made in a loud room. It has potential. This program is kind of like the "aperture" of Adobe -- cool features, but limited scope.

I was kinda worried about the "kernel" aspects of this install... but found it to easily installable/uninstallable. I had the whine bad with 3rd or 4th rev. of the logic board and this solved 90+% of the sound issue. I can still hear something when I put my ear directly up to my laptop (which is reasonable to assume--this app didn't replace the bad part), but this patch cut the whine down to very reasonable / unnoticable levels.

I'm not sure if I'll even need to send my computer back in for repair now! I am very pleased with this software.

I am also getting a bad data error. I've tried downloading everything listed in the comments as well as the official download and its not working.

I think clarification would be nice... do I use my full email address on the back or just my username?
