Works like a charm. I'm using it without a hitch on a Macbook and a iMac G4. Thank you very much for the developer. Now, get Jon Hicks to make a new icon and I'll donate some money :)

Very nice first release. The preference dialog seems a little cluttered. I think many of them could be merged into one, such as Aliases and Shortcuts. Speaking of the aliases, the foward slash within the text input is unneeded. A foward slash must accompany any command anyways so I would leave it in the backend of the code.

I haven't had time to test all the functionality of the application, but if it does all of what it claims in the preferences, this has the potential to be competition for Colloquy. However, with Colloquy being free, the competition is stiff.

Watanabe doesn't give two shits about us, the consumers. I purchased Acquisition August 8th, 2005. I recently formatted and reinstalled Acquisition (on the same machine I first registered with) and now, like many others here, my registration cannot be verified.

Copied from my email:


Acquisition Registration:
Thanks for registering Acquisition, the most innovative P2P application on the Macintosh!

Please ensure that you are running the latest version of Acquisition. Simply enter the following information in Acquisition's registration preference panel:

email address: *******

If you have not yet downloaded Acquisition, you can do so at the following URL:

Thanks again!
David Watanabe


Oh, no! Thank you, Dave! For nothing.

I believe it was your responsibility to check if the scanner was supported before you bought it. Not the developer's. You purchased the software as-is. If anyone is to blame, it's yourself.

Unless the developer of Vuescan gave a guarantee that he will support all versions of every manufactured scanner produced, your argument is null.

Still no spell checking support. I'll never fully switch until this is implemented.

Forum posts, blog entries, comments just like this one.

I'm a good speller, but I type far too fast for my own good.

I think it's funny that they're deleting their own software in the screenshot. Application suicide.

Why on earth is there no individual refresh rate? Not all feeds need updated at the same time.

I have no idea how this works, but to my surprise it actually does. I'm not sure how useful it is, but it's kinda fun testing it out.

I've tried to stick by Snak, but it's shortcomings are becoming far too noticeable. I guess the only way to make me completely happy would be a total rewrite in Cocoa.

OS X is so pretty and Snak just doesn't do it justice at all. My complaints aren't just with the looks, but the total functionality as well. I want drag and drop DCC sending and new inventive features. What happen to "think different"? I'd like Address Book functionality that would allow me to whois a person and show their information. So on and so forth.

Sorry for my small rant.

I think this would be a lot more useful if you could choose how many webcams to display and in what order, such as all vertical, horizontal, or in the shape of a square.
