  1. It is great, but I can't download it. The link in y9ur ealier message is dead. Can you post a new link? Thanks, and great work!
  2. I totally agree. The recent "petition" at Emaculation to get Stardock to release a free version of the old Macvision bar was really disgraceful. The only things worse were the insulting comments made about Stardock and personal attacks against Brad, who was kind enough to release (and continually upgrade) the great (and free) ObjectDock. I can only assume that those people are still supported by their parents and have no clue how difficult it is to make a business succeed, especially in an ailing economy such as ours. Ken
  3. I for one am really looking forward to Smoke and Flyakite's WB OSX skins. I recently saw a post here with a 19 meg download of actual OSX 10.2 resources. I'm not sure where it was, but it was posted within the last dew days. Can't wait to see both of your work.
  4. ObjectDock is an excellent program, and jumps ahead by leaps and bounds with each release. Thanks again for all your work on this and I can't imagine what the 1.0 release will be like.

    Bravo Jef

    Absolutely great work and thank you for releasing it! I can't wait to see where it's going.
  6. This is amazing! Stash, you've done a fantastic job and I can't wait to see how this develops! I also had the problem mentioned above where the program crashed on clicking the "+", but I reinstalled the aqua controls and now it works just fine. If I find any good iPhoto pix on the web, send them along. Thanks for all your hard work on this. Ken

    Ob .70 Here

    The dock is getting better and better! However, small issues with .70: I had to completely unload Desktop X, as the program crashes on startup and all objects are lost. Desktop X then crashes when I try to create new objects to replace those that were lost. Also, when I try to add a new dock item (in this case a My Docs folder), although I get the OD preferences dialogue box, when I try to change the icon, OD freezes and I must control-alt-delete to close out OD. These 2 issues have only occurred since installing .70. I'm running XP SP-1 on an 800MZ PIII with 256 mgs of RAM. Thanks. Ken
  8. I just gave Picasa a try, and I'll definately buy this one. It's great, and if someone can skin it, I think it could be very close to iPhoto. Thanks a lot for the link to Picasa. Ken
  9. This is not good... Apple may be purposefully ignoring this, but it's not a good idea to start throwing it is their faces...

    About Yz Toolbar

    I have the same problem. In IE, the icons switch places and I must reload the program to get them back in place. Ken
  11. I must be doing something wrong, but I can never get MobyDock to load. Well, it does load up and run (according to my task manager), but nothing appears on the desktop after I've double clicked the exe file. Does anyone else have this problem, and more importantly, how can I fix this! Thanks, Ken
  12. Thanks Nobski. It works great! For some reason, Smoke's suggestion doesn;t work on my machine. Ken
  13. I found this over at the DT2 forums. It answered my question and it works like a charm. Hope this helps anyone else who was interested: personally i just like hitting f3 but if you must: stolen right from virtual plastic... Using a script. Create a new textfile and enter these lines: Dim objShell Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application") objShell.FindFiles Save and rename the file to find.vbs. Now simply link to the file with the applauncher or a regular shortcut. If you can't link to specific files, try this command line: "wscript.exe x:\path\find.vbs". here are so
  14. Thanks Nobski. I did a Google search but only turned up references to Aqua Find File and AquaFind in old e-maculation boards. If you could upload it, that would be great, as I hadn't heard of this Aqua app before. Thanks again, Ken
  15. Does anyone know a shell command or a shortcut to use in Objectdock to access "search" (something like Sherlock in OSX)? Thanks, Ken
  16. Thanks for the tip Grusic. Symetrics is great, as is your OSX clock. One question: the shadow under the clock appears a solid black (and I'm running XP). Is there a way to get the shadow to have alpha transparency? I couldn't find that in the configuration. Thanks again, Ken
  17. I've noticed in the new release that I can't move any of the icons to new positions once they are placed in the dock. They bounce back to where they were originally. Ken
  18. The new version is incredibly fast and smooth... a great job! Ken
  19. The magnification effect is perfect and so much faster than the first version. This is becoming one hell of a dock! With a glued to desktop feature, active apps triangles and the recycle bin sharing the system section on the far right, this will be perfect. Thanks again for bringing this one out. Ken
  20. What I thought was really great in the last release of Yz Dock was the ability to switch off "always on top" so that the dock remains glued to the desktop and doesn't appear over running progs. I like this feature better than autohide, and I hope that Jeff can impliment that in a future release. Thanks again Jeff for the great dock app, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it develops! Ken
  21. I agree with you completely. Objectdock is not very customizable (as far as I could see if the few minutes I experimented), but if they keep building on this beta, it could turn into something rather good. Right now, however, I'm back to Yz! Ken
  22. Thanks very much Ricky, that really helped the dock performance on my machine, and it looks great! Ken
