Default Folder X 5.1.6b4

Friday, August 25th, 2017

Here’s the latest beta version of Default Folder X, including a workaround for a High Sierra bug that caused Default Folder X to beachball for tens of seconds when displaying folders with lots of items in them. It also fixes a problem with “Save as PDF” dialogs not being recognized, along with correcting some graphical glitches.

For folks not using High Sierra, this build also corrects a bug that caused Default Folder X to add duplicate tags to a file when you used the tagging field that’s built into macOS Save dialogs:

Jettison 1.4.3 addresses crash when waking from sleep

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

Version 1.4.3 of Jettison is now available, fixing several bugs. This includes a change to prevent Jettison from quitting unexpectedly when your Mac wakes from sleep. We recommend that anyone using Jettison update to the new version.

Please note that if you purchased Jettison from the Mac App Store, you must run Jettison once from the download image BEFORE you replace your old version in the Applications folder. This will copy your Mac App Store license so that Jettison doesn’t pester you to purchase it again.

Details and download links are on the Jettison Release Page!

BikeTown Africa Spin-a-thon

Friday, March 27th, 2009


And now for something completely different…

Some of you may already know that I’m an avid mountain biker – I have almost as many bikes as I do Macintoshes (which is a little scary).  Well, the gym I belong to is sponsoring a spin-a-thon to support the BikeTown Africa Project.  On Sunday, we’ll have a gym full of people pedaling like mad on stationary bikes for four hours to raise awareness and money for BikeTown Africa.

What’s BikeTown Africa?

Founded in 2005 by the Kona Bicycle Co., the Bristol Myers-Squibb Secure the Future Foundation, and Bicycling Magazine, the BikeTown Africa Project provides new, well-built, low-maintenance Kona AfricaBikes to home health care workers in sub-Saharan Africa to facilitate the treatment of HIV/AIDS patients.  Just $100 covers the cost of donating one bike, including training its user on maintenance and repair.  Using a bike, a health care worker can visit eight or more patients per day instead of one!

What can you do?

The Weight Club and Virginia Tech University Honors are holding the spin-a-thon on Sunday.  I’m participating and raising money from sponsors because I think this is a very worthwhile cause – it’s putting long-term, practical resources on the ground to help combat a huge health issue.

I’ve set up a page so you can sponsor me for the spin-a-thon here:

You can give as little as $5, or as much as you want in $5 increments by buying more than one of the ‘donations’.  I’m personally covering the payment processing cost, so your entire donation will be given to the BikeTown Africa Project.  The spin-a-thon is this Sunday, so please make your donation before noon on Sunday.

Update: Well, the spin-a-thon is over (hence the crossed out donation link) but thanks to readers here and to the dedication of a a lot of folks at the Weight Club and VT University Honors, we raised $7440 for BikeTown Africa!  Thank you!!
