    And just a friendly hint: don't let your chihuahua use your Mac. They always screw up the settings and preferences, they never back up files, and they leave paw prints all over the keyboard. :D

    At least some have had issues with Awaken on Leopard, as this thread shows. They also have a free alternative recommendation there, called Aurora. It's always a good idea to search the forums before starting a new thread. Chances are very high that your question has already been answered.

    This is my favorite alarm clock for Mac by far. I used Aurora for a bit last year, but then they started charging for it or something (I didn't really care because I'd already found an alternative).

    (and it's free)

    Sorry it's not free, but try it out; I'd say it's worth every penny.

    Of course I bought mine with MacHeist.

    Chrysanthemum, or we just call her Chris. :D

    She is really lively and loves to jump around and you can pick her up and run around with her. We picked her up from a shelter where they got her from a puppy mill where she was abused and was just made to make babies. She is missing the tip of her right ear which you can see in the picture and her front teeth so my dad calls her "Hillbilly dog". I love her!

    She's cute indeed! I hope she's recovered from the abuse by now... friend of mine also saved his dog from similar conditions, except the dog was male. He's doing fine by now, thankfully =) And that's a cute name, reminds me of the song Chrysanthemum... you should play it to her sometime. =)

    ^ Aww that is such a cute dog. Almost cute enough to let her have my Macbook. Almost.
