    Only downside I have experienced in the G5 version is that it doesn't keep history past 24 hours.

    might be a dumb question, but how do you 'formally' uninstall software from OSX? in winders you go to the add/remove software. this is still one of the few things i haven't stumbled upon since my apple purchase..

    thanx

    Drag the icon out of your applications folder. Viola, you're done.

    ^^ you might also want to trash your .plist file if you plan on reinstalling the same app. I've seen a few problems arise by old/corrupted plist.

    Just do a search for the name of the program and .plist

    I personally wish they would just group the plist in w/ the .app package. But this would present a whole new set of issues I presume.

    another reason why i LOVE apple. as simple as dragging icon to trash, and emptying trash. no hidden system files in diff dir's, etc. <3

    Apple engineers and programmers work hard so you don't have to.
