    Quite big news Monkey Island on mac really.... (troll food in a tin.... with marrowbone jelly)
  • Deleted user 3 March 2010 00:41:40
    MacJournal
    RipIt
    Clips
    CoverScout
    Flow
    Tales of Monkey Island
    RapidWeaver

    Monkey Island is the unlock this time.

    Bit crap, really. Was hoping for things. Rest is very web-dev central.
  • Deleted user 3 March 2010 01:01:22
    Meh, only really interested in the DVD ripper, but I'm sure I've already got one some where. Oh well.

    Already have RapidWeaver. CoverScout and Monkey Island look ok but I doubt I'll use any of them. Bit rubbish really, although by the end of the week I'll probably have changed my mind and bought it. :/

    Hmm... The DVD Ripper would be mildly useful and MacJournal would probably be very useful for me. That said, I'm really after Tales of Monkey Island... how likely is it to go over 50k? I never really track these things.

    Don't think there's ever been an time when they've not unlocked anything.
  • Deleted user 3 March 2010 14:53:18
    Hmm, what's rapidweaver like? I'm currently using coda, but it's very expensive if I want to purchase it.

    Coda and RapidWeaver is like comparing iWeb to Vi. One is drag and drop and limited, the other is code and drop from a brain haemorrhage. ;)

    RW is ok and not nearly as limited as iWeb but there's no comparison to a proper web coding tool.

    Someone convince me why I need MacJournal. I have Scrivener, it's not basically the same thing is it?
  • Deleted user 3 March 2010 23:26:21
    You don't need it.
  • Deleted user 3 March 2010 23:28:35
    You're doing it wrong!
  • Deleted user 3 March 2010 23:31:23
    That's what she said.

    ...


    I am so, so sorry.
  • Deleted user 3 March 2010 23:37:23
    Shameful.
  • Deleted user 3 March 2010 23:38:39
    That's what she... I can't go through with it again.

    You still don't need MacJournal though.
  • Deleted user 3 March 2010 23:42:24
    But you know, it might, you know come in handy at one point in my life. Maybe. Nnngghhhh

    The MacUpdate Spring Bundle is is out. Nothing exciting though.
    Parallels 5 works out at $20 cheaper if you buy the bundle but then I'd have to buy a copy of Windows.

    Nothing that appeals to me this time.
  • Deleted user 17 March 2010 22:21:08
    Hmmm.

    I need parallel, really. If only there was one more program I wanted there.
  • Deleted user 17 March 2010 22:22:15
    What for? Can't you just use WINE?

    WINE doesn't always work properly - SopCast is a notable ballache.
  • Deleted user 17 March 2010 22:57:16
    Just started watching the vid for the bundle and it was talking about Parallels and how you can run your bootcamp W7. Does that mean I could use it to access my original W7 partition without having to piss about with starting a fresh?

    Yes.
  • Deleted user 17 March 2010 23:32:32
    It also means that my windows only teacher rubbish will run as if it was just another mac program. Which is nice. Does WINE do that? I haven't really had a look at it. I don't need video stuff, really.

    Haven't looked into WINE for a few years. NOt sure what state it's in now but it used to be a PITA to get running under Linux.

    If you don't need any flashy graphics, you should try Sun's VirtualBox. It's free.
  • Deleted user 18 March 2010 00:03:42
    VirtualBox is ace.

    I've recently started using VirtualBox to run a Windows XP install for a couple of work apps. Seems much more responsive (on my Mac Mini) than VMWare Fusion, haven't really tried Parallels.

    Dirty bootcamp users!!
