Waiting for a fix…

October 27, 2005

Over at Shirt Pocket Watch, my buddy Dave Nanian blogs about a long-standing bug in OS X Tiger that has an unpleasant impact on his SuperDuper! disk cloning product and his customers’ experience:

“This is really frustrating for our users, because things don’t work in a mysterious (and ungrammatical) way. And it’s frustrating for us, because it makes us look bad, incompetent and/or lazy. Honestly, we’re not.”

I have had similar experiences and feel for Dave in this situation. Bugs and shortcomings in software out of our control have the potential of making our products look bad, frustrate customers, and cause quite a lot of otherwise not required support work.

Dave, by the way, is the hardest working indy-developer I know, and I can highly recommend his SuperDuper! to those who need a disk cloning tool. Check it out; it’s good stuff.


David Chartier likes Salling Clicker, might send batch of cookies…

Over at The Unofficial Apple Weblog, David Chartier describes the experience of controlling his iMac around the whole apartment using a Palm T|X and Salling Clicker over his Airport Express network. He seems to be liking it!

Helpful Hint: When connecting to Salling Clicker over a wireless network, make sure your computer’s firewall isn’t blocking TCP-port 52131. Take care of this from System Preferences -> Sharing -> Firewall.


Nice to meet you!

Let me introduce myself and this blog. I’m Jonas Salling, and I run Salling Software, a small software company with what I think are really cool products. In this blog, I’ll be writing about things that catch my interest and, of course, about Salling Software and its products.

Stay tuned! And welcome.
