    93103Pester includes a Dock menu, which you can access by Control (⌃)-clicking
     
    100110Pester is also fully Y3K-compliant. It can be comforting to know that even if you won’t be around then, if your Mac still works, so will Pester.

    103115
    104116Q. Why isn’t Pester a full-featured calendar/scheduling program? What use is it otherwise?
     
    114126A. Please see my Web page for details. Essentially: don’t pass it off as your own, and give me credit if you use all or part of it in your own software.

    116129Version history
     130--------------------------
    117131
    1181321.1 / forthcoming
     133-----------------
    119134•       Requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later (Universal Binary).
    120135•       Fixed small memory leaks on alarm creation and with the “Remove” button in the alarm list window.
     
    149164•       Default to today’s date in the “at” section.
    150165•       Reduced Pester’s processor usage while alarms are pending, and while the “Set Alarm” window is open but hidden.
    151 •       Changed alarm storage to be more reliable, expandable and human-readable, if a bit slower. Conversion occurs at startup and is one-way (if you really need it to be two-way, the feature would not be hard to add).  The alarm list should no longer become lost with a message such as “2002-11-18 00:31:24.461 Pester[8545] An error occurred while attempting to restore the alarm list: *** Incorrect archive: unexpected byte”.
     166•       Changed alarm storage to be more reliable, expandable and human-readable, if a bit slower. Conversion occurs at startup and is one-way (if you really need it to be two-way, the feature would not be hard to add).  The alarm list should no longer become lost with a message such as “2002-11-18 00:31:24.461 Pester[8545] An error occurred while attempting to restore the alarm list: \*\*\* Incorrect archive: unexpected byte”.
    152167•       Switched to apple-generic versioning (agvtool, etc.).  Xcode 2.4 or later is required to build Pester 1.1.
    153168•       Incorporated Sparkle for automatic updates.
    154169•       Creator code is now Pest instead of Pstr (the latter was already registered).
    155170
     171--------------------------
    156172Still to be fixed for 1.1:
     173--------------------------
     174
    157175•       Dock bouncing doesn’t work when Pester is frontmost.
    158176•       Customizable alerts: AppleScript, playback of sounds, images and movies (anything QuickTime can handle).
     
    165183•       Extremely delayed alarm times can be huge (4....... years)
    166184
     185----------------------------------------------------
    167186Known bugs in this version (not to be fixed by 1.1):
     187----------------------------------------------------
    168188•       Type-selection of alarms by their dates and times in the alarm list only works well when the items in the list are in approximate alphabetical order; this breaks with certain date and time formats.
    169189
     190-----------------------------------------------
    170191Additional features planned for later versions:
     192-----------------------------------------------
    171193•       Better repeating alarms, such as a “real time” option so you can schedule an alarm to go off every hour, on the hour, for example.
    172194•       Better handling of non-repeating expired alarms—offer the option to have the alarms go off when Pester is restarted?
