same, using most of those. I think we need our own stickied section for all the cool software we use (preferably free) on the mini. I often waste hours trying to find that one program I read about but forgot the name of...

PS i use this osx software: New Releases is a great source of inspiration.


SSD(refurb) 64GB

Black Mini 9 w/ 2 Apple logo stickers over the Dell logo, 64GB Dell SSD, bluetooth, webcam; OS X 10.5.8 w/ NetbookInstaller 0.8.3; no more Ubuntu

IMO this is a pretty naff list - no mention of quality apps like Handbrake, Unison, MacPAR, superduper, evernote... I could go on and on...

I was a little disappointed with LH as they are usually very good and informative.
