I saw BZFlag on freshmeat tonight and decided to give it a try. Wow, total bloodbath. Kind of a fun game but would be more fun if I could routinely last for more than 10 seconds and maybe have a positive score.

Frequent Quicksilver crashes?

Lately, Quicksilver has been quietly dying very often and I’m constantly restarting it. I suppose I should try reinstalling and/or deleting my preferences, but before I do that, I was wondering if anyone else was seeing this.

Interestingly, I’ve also noticed that the “check for updates” functionality always fails to connect to the server. I’ve wondered if this and the crash are related (e.g.: Quicksilver dying when it attempts to do an automatic check), but that’s just pure speculation.

Here’s a snippet from the last crash log that got dumpd in ~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter
