Finally I have been able to do some work on my own projects. I have managed to install a plugin onto Macommand that will keep it updated for me automatically, so far so good. I have also managed to do some more work on the ever growing Aggregator plugin.
I also spent the weekend cleaning my Macbook from clutter, easiest way was to install OS X again and install all the programs I need etc. So now I have a nice new shiny desktop free of clutter, until Leopard comes out anyway.
