Speaking of GeekSafe, does anyone knows where the author is? I tried to contact him
the other day, but my mail bounced. Did anybody have any problem at all when using
GeekSafe the first time after a reset? I'm usually getting a -48204 (path failed)
error. The only way I found to fix it is by opening/activating GeekGaz.

Also, I don't know if it's me, but it seems that HWR in GeekSafe doesn't work like
in any other app. I really need to write fast, or it starts recognizing all kind of
weird characters.

Anybody else?
