    Folders

    I think Connect360 doesn't support folder structures. It just dumps everything at one level. Makes it pretty useless really.

    Hope Rivet works. It might give me the incentive to upgrade to Leopard.

    Nullrivet?

    After looking at some screen shots of Rivet I think I can safely say that it's a rip off of Connect360 -OR- Nullriver (the makers of Connect360) have decided to launch Rivet as a new product under a different company name to get around their free updates for life offer on Connect360. Hmmm. Anyone know anymore about this?
