For those of you who said you were using Caffeine - check out InsomniaX - does the same thing as far as I gathered, but allows you to keep a MacBook awake even when the screen is closed.
Some others I like:
- Quicksilver rules my world. I do wish it didn't hang several times daily. I hope the new Google Quick Search box (which has the same person behind it) is developed to replicate most of the functionality.
- iStat Pro and Organized widgets from iSlayer are the main reason to use the dashboard.
- Skim if you spend your days reading pdf research papers like I do.
- VLC, need I say more?
- Microsoft's LiveMesh has served me well for online syncing/backup since I dropped DropBox (see what I did there?). The 'box was fine, but I really needed the ability to sync selected folders rather than having all the synchronised files corralled within a single location. And the 5 gig free storage is a bonus too.
