    Hi Adam:

    Regarding the guy who was asking about synching bookmarks between Firefox and Safari, one way to do it is to use (just mark the bookmarks as not for sharing, where applicable). There are plugins for both Firefox and Safari, and by using delicious you can get at your bookmarks from any PC.

    My online life is scattered over at least 4 computers, so it’s a lifesaver for me!

    Love the show, keep up the good work!

    ripitapp is 0 for 2 so far for me. It keeps telling me my disks are scratched or dirty. It has a point, but mac the ripper has no problem handling it. A shame because it seems to be pretty polished visually.

    Love your show. I teach in a PC world but have a Mac at home. At school I have Front Page to compose class websites and I’ve been trying to find an affordable alternative for the Mac. Your show today was perfect for me. I hadn’t heard of most of the Web Design programs you mentioned, and I have done several Google searches for “Mac OS X Web Design.” Thanks for all the options. I always find your show helpful and informative. Plus, I like your style. Thanks! Julie in Indiana
