I <em>told</em> you it was good. VoodooPad 
<a href="http://gusmueller.com/archives/2003/7/10.html#901">just won first place</a> 
in the US section of the O'Reilly 
<a href="http://www.macdevcenter.com/pub/a/mac/developer/2003/07/10/innovators.html">Mac OS X Innovators contest</a> - 
<strong>congratulations, Gus</strong>!
I've loved <a href="http://www.flyingmeat.com/voodoopad.html">VoodooPad</a> since Buzz at 
<a href="http://www.scifihifi.com/">skiffyhiffy</a> first pointed it out to me. 
Try it immediately, if not sooner - and if you buy it now, you'll save a bit too ($10 currently, but will go up to $29 soon).



I actually discovered this when Googling for the name of the guy who officially first noticed VP's window fade-outs 
(it was <a href="http://disco.ucsd.edu/blog/2003/Jun/14#voodoopadfadeout">Michael McCracken</a>, incidentally - 
wasn't that also Denis Leary's character's name in Loaded Weapon 1?), 
since I reimplemented the effect just for fun a couple of nights ago. Very easy to do, yet rarely seen in apps, and thus 
still quite eye-catching.
