Works great - Works great, though I wish it wouldn't have an icon in the system tray. A utility app such as this should be invisible...

Version 1.0.2
Review by Richard Blumberg

Doesn't work - I installed it on the Mac Mini operating as our media center. It doesn't work. At all. I've been fooling around, quitting and deleting start-at-login options for anything that might conceivably interfere. It doesn't work. At all. I should have given the $3 to that homeless guy at the expressway exit.
