I hesitate to post this because it could so easily turn into the PWL in here, but even ignoring the cause, this is a fantastic bundle:

The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

I haven't bought a Humble bundle in a while, I have too many indie games to play, but this one... The Witness - sadly no Mac version yet, although it is supposedly coming - was $20 at launch and is not that old. It is the first time I have seen it on a sale at all. Several of the ones that are older and that I have played are excellent games (World of Goo, Super Meat Boy, VVVVVV) and the books look interesting as well.

Seems to be selling well, they have sold almost $2 million since I posted it, and I don't even see Notch on the top ten list yet.

They've adding 23 items to the bundle. Anyone who already bought it automatically gets the new content too.

52 Mac games (40 DRM-free)
1 Mac game expired for new customers
7 Win-only games (4 DRM-free)
6 ebooks
2 audiobooks
1 documentary video
1 album

Price: $30 or more, customer chooses how their sale is divided between three charities. I bought one.

note: "Monster Loves You" is listed as Win-only, but does run on Mac. I've reported the bug.

Bought. I've got a few of them already, but £25 ish for 60 something things I haven't got had to be done .

It'll be much easier if you just comply.

I highly advise you to buy the newest Humble Civilisation Bundle (one day remaining, so please hurry up!). Nearly all of the games are Mac-compatible. Really good deal - Civ 5 with all the DLC's is still superior to the newest one.
I do as much debugging as possible on the Mac, but I occasionally must debug problems in the PC world, which is significantly slower. - Robert

No, I think it is until Mar 7th.

As a long-time Civ fan, I disagree about Civ V being a better game than Civ VI, but Civ IV - which you can get for $1 in that bundle - is better. It is arguably the best of them all, with the possible exception of Civ II.
