mail.app, offline, BAD, mmkay?

A warning and complaint to all:


Offline support in Mail.app in 10.5.1 (and 10.5.0) is a DISASTER!
Actions performed offline (filing) DO NOT get synced when you connect
back up. Further, every time you send a message it warns you that
you're not connected! I lost 2 hours of email work on the plane.
Apparently only 50% of the 40 emails I sent actually found their way
out, I can't tell what is what, and who has seen whom. It's a disaster.
DO NOT USE mail.app for offline.


darn it.

Mac Software Bundle

Yes, it appears to be a bad deal for the developer. It's a great deal for the user though.

The MacHeist software bundle takes 14 apps and sells them for 90% off - $49 total. And that's a real discount - not some ginzu knife discount. I personally had purchased 1passwd in the past for the indicated price. I've already received my money's worth - Snapz Pro X is a great way to do screencasts, and costs $69 alone.

Ensuring they are buzzword compliant, they also have a viral marketing aspect - refer people to recieve additional software. Clearly they're roped me in to it. Finally, it's marketing genius that they give 25% of the order to charity - help you assuge your guilt somehow? Turn buying into a community action? Either way, it's really worth checking out, and taking advantage of. The deal ends Wednesday.
