Made my EasyTAG build for OSX Lion compatible. Thanks to the gtk+ people who provided gtk Lion patches in no time.
Please post some feedback if it works correctly. I would especially need feedback from 10.4 Users (if there are any left 😉 because I can't test that myself

Tunnelblick using OpenVPN is imho the best solution for making VPN connections on Macs, and I have been using it for years …
It's relatively easy to set up, very extensible and OpenSource.
However there always have been some small improvements I wanted to have such as :
» TimeMachine not always starting, while I am on the road and have my bridged tunnel open to home – TimeMachine starts and backs up recent changes to my home server. This saturates the line and on most connections just isn't feasible to even backup 20 MB without having to pause other work that goes over the tunnel. So I had to manually turn it off and on all the time – very annoying.
» Growl Notifications on connection und disconnection events. I like Growl very much, it's informative, unobtrusive and very costumizable. And even though there exists a patch for Tunnelblick which integrates Growl support – it was unfortunately not included in the main branch – so I had always to repatch and recompile every new tunnelblick version I wanted to use – very annoying too …
» Setting my nameserver to the one inside my home network, so I can access all my ressources via the internal domain name (such as xyz.local) .
I looked through the available options for implementing this stuff and figured out it would be the best (read : simple) solution to use the integrated up and down script features of OpenVPN.
Most stuff was only poking through the docs, but one thing was a hard nut, if I changed the TimeMachine preferences, the MenuIcon would not reflect that, because it hasn't been notified … Funnily even if you change it in the TimeMachine PrefPane it doesn't update correctly for me (10.6.5).

Rebuild and repackaged my easytag build : alpha3. Now it seems to finally support 10.4 and 10.5 on Intel Macs – I have received very positive feedback.
For the technical interested :
It is some dyld Load command issue, somehow the loader command LC_DYLD_INFO was incorporated in my libwavepack.dylib even though I think I passed the correct compile and linker options via Deployment Target and Min Version to libwavepack … the other libraries work fine with the same options, but perhaps it was only stupid me …
Whatever, for the moment libwavpack has been removed – the rest works now well with 10.4 and 10.5 – I try to figure wavepack out some time.

Here it is, and easy to use (inofficial) Easytag build for OSX, this is the most recent version (2.1.6) with the latest patches that is available from the easytag homepage.
For me it works quite well, I tested mp3 tagging, file renaming and cddb lookup and had no issues till now.
But beware this is an alpha build, if you try it out I would be glad to hear any positive or negative issues. Please leave comments or write me an email.

At the moment I am doing some C# programming with VS2008. Since a few days I had the Problem, that whenever I open a Project Visual Studio complains that it can not read or write from the “CurrentSettings.vssettings” file.
As if that wouldn’t be enough VS startet cluttering my project folders and everything with it’s “.vssettings” files because there it was able to write.
