Replacements for Sciral Consistency

I really like the concept and implementation of Sciral Consistency, but I'm not about to pay $25 for a piece of software that hasn't been updated since 2005. Heck, its still a PowerPC-only binary. It seems to me like it's a dead app, and I'm concerned that I'll never see any updates.

So what do people suggest as an alternative? I've been hacking away at a Ruby on Rails clone of it, but I haven't made as much progress as I'd like to.

Sciral Consistency is Alive and Well


I am the author of Sciral Consistency, and wanted to state for the record that the software is alive and well: both the Mac and Windows versions are fully supported and run fine on all current OS versions. In fact, minor revisions for both platforms will be appearing in a few days, and the new Mac version will be Universal Binary.

Unfortunately, Sciral Consistency does not have a large enough market to justify the time necessary to aggressively add features. If you want to help change that, feel free to become a customer and encourage others to do likewise! ;)

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
