Great app. Very easy to use but also a lot of advanced options. This is an application that rivals Toast but this one is free instead of $80! I've deleted Toast from my computer and just use this instead.

I don't know what you're talking about. It clearly shows itself as a Universal binary on my system since beta 0.1, this version included.

If you're talking about Office 2004 itself then no, it will never be Universal, 2008 will be.

Very usefull but as already mentioned it still has some issues. I'll be using it nontheless. I've been looking for something like this.

Why can't we get e decent version of ICQ? No audio, no video, no universal binary. Even ICQ2go is better than the Mac version.

If you encounter problems please email me with some details like OS version and description of the error. Then I can actually try to solve it.

Just curious, why do you care how big an application is these days? We have fast internet connections and hard disks that can hold 100's of GB's. It's 550kb and that's not too large I think. The app itself is only 96kb but the dmg with text file make it 550kb.

Code is pretty efficient as it is and if you think you can do better please do so. That will save me a lot of time. I made this app to be usefull to people, if you don't like it that's fine but please give a normal argument so I can improve things. Not some BS about it being 550kb.

Thankfully I have a lot of users that are very satisfied with my product and who actually try to make suggestions to make this app better.

For starters, I don't write this comment to defend myself or my app. I understand some people see problems in using it. That could be the case but it does what it should and claims to do. I hope this explains what and why to people who don't read manuals.

You're absolutely right about the .DS_Store files. You should not remove them from you OS X volume. This app wasn't designed to do that. I made it for external deveices like usb keys or mp3 player. The program will let you remove everything, it will warn as of version 1.2 if your trying a HFS volume but it is up to you wether you'll do that or not. To most people cleaning their OS X volume will not even be a problem although it isn't recommended.

Resource forks are another thing offcourse. The reason the program deletes them is because it was written to clean ALL Macintosh mess. Why? Simply because some deveices seem to choke on the mess your Mac leaves.

Warnings and what the app exectly does are all in the readme. I wrote this to be helpfull, not to get people into trouble. If you don't read the manual and screw up something that's not my problem. The description is clear and if you are unsure about this being safe or not you probably shouldn't bother.

You should indeed not run this on an OS X volume, it won't cause problems if you're only running OS X exept for the trashcan wich won't work until reboot. There is no real point in removing resource forks from a mac volume anyway so just don't do it.

I expect people to read the readme file wich does specify that you shouldn't use this on a mac volume. Nevertheless I agree that this could be made more obvious to the user so I will look into this.

And again a negative reply...

Let's make one thing clear. This script is to be used when repairing permissions does not work. In that case it could help the user. You don't have to use it. If you read the description you would know what it does and why you would use it.

I know this script helped me, that is why I made it. So that it might help some other mac users with SU problems.

And why so negative about this? It's not like this could harm your system. If it helps that's very nice, if it doesn't find another fix or email me with a question. Don't bash something because simply repairing your permissions works for you...

It indeed repairs your permissions, which I admit is not nessesary but could be usefull. But it also copies the "tar" needed by Software-Update to the right location. The "tar" file not being there is the cause of the problem, which is thus fixed by this script. The permission repair is to be sure that was not the problem.

If your /usr/bin already contains a "tar" file this fix won't work for you. The whole point of this fix is that in some cases when Xcode/dev tools are removed your tar is removed as well. This file is needed by softwareupdate so it won't work if it's not there. If you want more info please email me with a question and I will get back to you asap.
