    Hey Adam,

    I really miss the weekly TalkShoe sessions. Anyway, I just wanted to add to what you said about gesturing the mouse to launch apps. Quicksilver has always had this ability via its Abracadabra plug-in. It’s a wild feature but personally, I don’t use it. Hope you have an incredible Summer!

    I second “Audiobook Builder”. I have used it for a couple months to convert multiple CD audiobooks that I’ve bought. It’s nice to put an 8 disc audiobook into one audio file! It does it so easily and trouble free.
