MacHeist 3 Bundle - 12 apps ($850 value) for only $39

BoinxTV just got unlocked, so now the MacHeist bundle includes 12 applications for only $39.

If anyone is interested and hasn't bought the bundle yet, I'd really appreciate it if you buy it through my link here: http://www.macheist.com/bundle/u/270073/
It's the same price for you either way, but if I can get two referrals I'll get an interesting tool.

iSale - eBay automation tool to make and manage nice looking eBay sales
Picturesque - Quick image touchup tool for nice edits / effects without loading a full-up photo editing tool
SousChef - Digital Cooking Assistant / Recipe Book
World of Goo - Innovative puzzle game for the Mac (it's quite fun)
PhoneView - Gives you complete synch ability for an iPhone or iPod Touch. Good companion to iTunes - you can get to pretty much all of your data with this
LittleSnapper - Screen Shot snap utility with extras (capture part of a web page, annotate, etc.)
Acorn - Photo Editor 'for the rest of us' - Looks to be somewhat between Picturesque (above) and a full-size editing tool
Kinemac - Intuitive 3D Animation. Easily make 3D animations on your Mac
WireTap Studio - Good quality recording utility for your Mac - Can record from any audio source that you can hear on the Mac, and gives editing capabilities
BoinxTV - Just got unlocked TV Studio on your Mac - lets you record podcasts, seminars and other events with a single tool - full video production capabilities
Cro-Mag Rally - Fun graphical racing game for the mac. Unlock courses as you improve :)
Times - I'm liking this one - it's a really cool RSS reader / aggregator for the Mac. It gives you a new UI - it presents all of your RSS feeds in a "newspaper" graphical format, and it really feels like an up-to-date, real newspaper.


Mom's in the emergency room

[Edit - 10pm]
Apparently mom's stable, and the tests that they're running are coming back normal. I ended up not driving up since it was no longer an emergency and the weather is going to be very iffy tonight (it's just started sleeting/snowing here, and it's probably worse up there). So, I'm going to wait and see what the cardiologist has to say tomorrow. They're going to run some tests and see if they can figure out what in the heck happened, and what can they do to try to not have it happen again. May have been a potassium imbalance (too high/too low), although it's way to early to speculate yet.

I'm on my way to Aurora. Apparently Mom went into V-Fib earlier this afternoon, and they took her in the ambulance to the hospital. They're working on getting her heart rate down slowly, but it's apparently fairly dicey.

More as events warrant...
