    Don't worry, the conduits are working fine for me.

    Glad to see another NOW user. I love these programs and think they are far superior to Entourage and iCal/Address Book.

    Speed comparisons would be good to know. I deleted Palm Desktop before I could do any myself.

    Usually I just do a quick sync of a couple appointment entries and a phone number or something so it doesn't take to long. In checking Missing Sync's log, here is a lengthy backup session for someone to compare (on a B&W 350 G3 , Mac OS X 10.2.8).

    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    Sync starting at 30 Jul 2004 11:09 PM on USB

    Backed up City Time_CiAa_appl_a68k.prc
    Backed up Web UserData.pdb
    Backed up Datebk3HDB.pdb
    ...boring file list continues for many pages.

    OK Backup
    Sync completed successfully at 30 Jul 2004 11:16 PM


    Total amount backed up was 21.3MB in roughly 7 minutes.

    *edit addition --> This of course doesn't take iSync into account which would vary to much.

    When you say "the conduits are working fine," please confirm Now Up to Date syncs without problem. I note that their website specifically states that NUTD is NOT supported. Thanks....

    Sorry! You're right! The log said that it synched fine, but that's only because I hadn't made any changes to my calendar since I installed the program. Once I entered some appointments into NOW U-T-D, it refused to sync!

    I have now UNINSTALLED Missing Sync and reinstalled the Palm HotSync Manager until Mark/Space supports Vindigo and NOW U-T-D. Those are two of the most essential programs for me.

    All in all, Missing Sync 4.0 has caused WAY too many problems for me, from bad reg codes, to quitting immediately after launch, to not supporting my most important conduits. I'd like to throw this program down the Kitchen Sync !

    Too bad... It has some nice functions, but I agree. I also use vindigo. It's a bit hard to understand how such a program could not work correctly with a conduit that plain old hotsync supports, but I'm no developer. I'll also pass until these get fixed. On a postiive note, I did receive a quick response from them overnight when I asked (confirming that they currently do not support NUTD, although they would not offer any timeframe for a fix, so I suspect it's not in the immediate future).

    The Missing Sync version 4.0.1 has now been released. Added features and bug fixes are listed below as copied from their website. I particularly like all the added things in the MemoPad Application and it's bugfixes.

    Added Command N to create a new memo in MemoPad.

    Issue 1951 - Fixed kernel panic issues with desktop mounting and CLIEs.

    Issue 1987 - iSync Palm conduit is only copied to global conduits folder if user drags it into the conduits window. Due to a bug in Apple's development of the conduit, it will not run properly in the user's conduits folder.

    Carriage returns are now converted to linefeeds when syncing memos. (Handheld displays carriage returns as boxes.)

    Fixed issue cancelling a Tapwave game install where the prc would be installed anyway.

    Now handles dragging/dropping of ini files from Tapwave games onto app

    Fixed issue installing some Tapwave games including Orbz

    When dragging/dropping some archives onto Missing Sync, wrong readme could be displayed. The readme/install file that is at the highest level in the archive is now displayed.

    m_LastSyncDate is now adjusted by the time zone offset in SyncReadUserID

    Fixed issue where some conduit settings were not "sticking".

    Issue 1965 - Reverted changes to how conduits run in order to support conduits such as Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide.

    Fixed issue where FMSync and other conduits that called ThreadCurrentStackSpace would fail.

    Issue 1969 - Fixed issue with readSingleCardInfo call that didn't properly return an error (affected ExpensePlus conduit).

    If a conduit is set for a fast sync and the last computer the user synced with isn't the computer computer, we now set the sync type to slow sync.

    Issue 1973 - Conduit now properly truncates category names to 15 characters

    If the computer name is blank, the registration dialog will crash. This issue has been fixed.

    Added ability to option click on conduit checkboxes to toggle all conduits on/off

    Added status to menubar (option in preferences)

    If app is located in user directory, startup item may not haved function properly

    Issue 1949 - Hitting command-delete now moves conduits to Disabled Conduits as documented.

    Issue 1950 - Japanese localizations added to installer.

    Still no NOW Up-To-Date!

    I'm a little bothered by the fact that there were so many "issues" that needed to be fixed. It makes me uncomfortable to think that a program that performs the essential function of syncing could be so buggy upon release.

    The update is nice. I was waiting for the support of FMSync. I'm not using MissingSync for my Treo yet, but started using it to sync my iMac & Tungsten C via WiFi. Works GREAT! As support is added for more conduits this will be the way to go. In fact when I upgrade to the 650 I plan on buying a second license for my Powerbook.

    I've had no problems at all. The WiFi sync is fast! Thanks MarkSpace
