"simple and great"

The tool is very good! Have your file permissions repaired once a week without any hassle!

It also reveals a weekness of VersionTrackerPro - if you have installed Macaroni VersionTrackerPro does not recognise it, at least not with 10.4.11.

"Great product "

Unobtrusive, set it up, and it just works. I have it installed on several Macs. I find it much easier to configure than *censored*tail, for example.

"wonderful"

This is a wonderful program. I'm glad it's updated for Leopard as I would wait for that otherwise. I do wish the author would add a few more features.

"Solid"

February 24, 2006  |  By chiefted

 |  Version: Macaroni 2.0.7b4

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Macaroni is a very solid and stable program.

I never have a problem with it. It runs the overnight UNIX commands at the times listed, and with my PB it will run them when I boot up in the morning as long as the power supply is connected, not sure why it won't on battery but not a big deal as I can force the daily script.

Yes I do have Onyx for the need to run something now but for just letting it run, Macaroni does it.

"The best one"

February 16, 2006  |  By Cola bonnan

 |  Version: Macaroni 2.0.6

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Simply the best mac os X utility. Why ? since it does not do 100 stuff ????
Because it does the basic maintenance task by itself, whatever your mac usage is.
Since I use it on all my macs, and my familly mac, I never had any problem, and don't have to think to do any maintnance.

So, for me, it's realy the best, the must have, the first software to buy on a new mac.

"A 'must have'..."

October 28, 2005  |  By MrsHudson

 |  Version: Macaroni 2.0.6

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Brilliant little programme, worth the tiny cost.

Macaroni taps into Mac OS's Unix maintenance routines, which certainly puts my mind at rest (no chance of 3rd party maintenance screwing up your files). It's dead easy to use and it runs quietly in the background. I'd almost forgotten I had it!

This little programm is perfect, a must for every Apple-user. You must install it once, but then everything goes automatic. Please read all the benefits below and on the website of Macaroni. The programm is the few euro's worth!

"Install it and forget it"

August 15, 2005  |  By Clavering

 |  Version: Macaroni 2.0.6

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
For a nominal shareware fee, Macaroni plugs an essential flaw in OSX's self-maintenance operation. Maybe Apple will implement something like this in a future OS. Until then, I'll keep using Macaroni.

"Macaroni just works for keep Macs 'snappy'"

July 03, 2005  |  By charnish

 |  Version: Macaroni 2.0.6

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
As an Apple consultant, I had been installing Onyx or Mac Janitor on all of my client's OS X machines, but found that very few clients actually used them.

Since I found out about Macaroni, I've been installing it on all machines. Nothing to be remembered. It is totally silent and in the background and just does the job.

Now... does this mean that I'll lose business because my clients are not having as many problems or will my business increase because my clients tell others that they don't have any problems since they hired me???

"Yankee Doodle Dandy"

May 10, 2005  |  By davebarnes

 |  Version: Macaroni 2.0.6

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
"He stuck a feather in his cap and called it macaroni."

Yes, this is a feather in the cap of Atomic Bird, the developer.

This simple, extremely easy-to-use, product automates necessary janitorial activities.

One of its most important features is that it does not mess up anything (as far as I can tell). That is very important in my book (or should I say: on my PpwerBook).

Purchase of Macaroni is a no-brainer. Only $8.99 USD. Now, if it only came with a free set of Ginsu knives.
