Disable BBEdit's 'APE' crash warning
Authored by: kyngchaos on Jun 13, '05 11:53:01AM

Even easier, no Terminal needed: HexEdit (http://www.ifd.com/product_info.php?products_id=87). Find 'ape' and edit with Overwrite Mode.

Awesome app, but I think the BBEdit authors must have something against Unsanity. Pretty lame to check for existence of other software after a system or application crash and gripe about. Especially when you can't be sure that it was your app that crashed or caused the system crash, or that the other software is the cause. Leave it up to crash reports and system/console logs to figure it out.

And I've been using Unsanity haxies and BBEdit for many years. I've never had problems with BBEdit and APE or haxies. Maybe APE with other software, but those are quickly fixed. APE has nothing to do with BBEdit _not_ crashing, so far.

The BBEdit people don't like the idea of code injection, which is what Unsanity does to make their haxies work. BBEdit is being rather childish, IMO.

I'm a huge fan of haxies and have registered copies of nearly all of them. Fruitmenu, Mighty Mouse and Shapeshifter. Especially shapeshifter; it lets me erase that abomination of a menu bar that Apple decided to release with tiger. A 3-d Chrome menu bar with a chalk-drawing Apple logo? Puke.

Fruitmenu lets the Apple menu become what it should have been from the beginning: a customizable global menu, and Mighty Mouse lets me flip the pointer for left-handed use, something Windows users have been able to do since Windows 3.11, but which Apple STILL doesn't allow. Window shade allows me to remap the minimize button to hide the window instead of shrinking a useless icon of it to my already cramped dock.

All of these haxies have run on my system since Jaguar, through upgades and have never given me any system stability problems.
