5 September Snow Leopard compatibility

Just a quick note, since so many of you have asked:

As of right now (5 September 2009), the toastycode screensavers have not yet been updated to work with Mac OS X 10.6. I’m working on new releases that will definitely be compatible with 10.5 and 10.6 (and, with any luck, 10.4); they should appear at toastycode.com in the next few days.

Thanks for your patience.

25 April TapeDeck 1.1.1.

This is a weekend for long-awaited software updates. Not a day after new versions of Cuckoo and LCD Scrub appeared, a bugfix update to our TapeDeck audio recorder is now available for download.

Here’s what’s new in version 1.1.1:

  • Fixed a crash that occurred when playing back corrupt audio files. Now the tape will simply appear to stop playing earlier than expected.
  • Copies .m4a tapes directly into the library, rather than sending them through the QuickTime importer engine
  • Drawing performance improved slightly
  • Set the file’s extension automatically according to the user’s currently selected QuickTime export component.


This is the toastycode software development blog, where you can read about new versions of toasty Mac software including TapeDeck (a handy new audio recorder), Cuckoo (customizable clock chimes for your Mac), Pyrothèque (a loving restoration of the fireworks screen saver), and LCD Scrub (soothing salve for burned-in flat-panel displays).
