Macs On A Train!

As I write this, I’m sitting on a train bound for Montreal, Canada… the home of Xsilva and the birthplace of LightSpeed. I’ve made this trip many times before. Each year, Xsilva hosts a reseller conference and I’ve never missed one of them. Although this trip is for a trade …

LightSpeed 3.5.3

It’s been one month since the last minor update from Xsilva and it looks like they’ve finally cleaned up the mess from 3.5 as well as added some fixes to long standing issues. As such, this is a most welcome update and I highly recommend it for current 3.5.x users. …

LightSpeed & Lion

I’ve received a number of emails from clients asking if they should upgrade to Lion and my answer, at this point at least, is ‘No’. Not unless you like being a guinea pig. If you’re the type of person who enjoys signing up for medical testing of new drugs, regardless …

Web Store 2.1

Web Store 2.1 was released today. This is a significant update to Web Store and adds some much requested features and fixes. Among the new features and improvements are the correction for the known uploader issue which would skip certain products when uploading, as well as the hanging progress bar …

LightSpeed 3.5 – A First Look

Today, the long awaited version 3.5 of LightSpeed was released. Of course, I downloaded and installed it immediately… effectively submitting myself as an unofficial guinea pig for the Xsilva (er, LightSpeed) development team. In case the rest of you are understandably gun shy, I’ve taken it upon myself to test …
