i've got a mac laptop and unfortunately can't use premium. i know that there's a web version...but the features on premium are soooo much better. does anyone know of another site that offers similar features that i can use?

Nope. Portal is unique in that sense. But I do have plans to spiffy up the web version abit though

I'm excited to hear you'll be doing some spiffy-ing! happy I'm also using mac and not about to try and install windows on my computer just so that I can run it. We've already had a horrible mishap here after my fiance attempted to create another drive and install it a couple of months ago... bootcamp is evil...

Can't wait to see the new features!

I can't wait too! But i've decided to stop using the portal. It keeps on closing when i try to submit my sales history.

If you're using Mac OS X, consider trying to run it through Wine.

http://wiki.winehq.org/MacOSX/Installing

I can run the portal on my computer (running Linux) through Wine. It works okay - a little buggy, but it works.

More info on Wine here:

Wine makes it possible to run *some* Windows applications on computers that aren't running Windows.

I know very little about Macs so I wouldn't be able to help, but there's tons of great info out there and it's worth a shot!

That's very interesting.
And I removed the file called "Microsoft Windows Common Controls" in the upcoming version so it might fix some bugs

Basically, instead of using Windows API features, I coded it from scratch

My only real issue is that I'm missing the menu bar at the top tongue I don't quite know what I'm missing out on by not having it, though?

Other than that, it seems to work fine. happy

Oh, funny tongue

Well then, I think the only issues I have are issues out of your control (issues with Wine, that is). It's just a little jumpy and can act funny if that makes any sense. But it's never crashed or given any usability issues.

So maybe the Mac users can get it working fully afterall happy
