[NTLK] Connecting with Mountain Lion?

NCX didn't work for me with 10.7 Lion, and (as was pointed out) it definitely won't work with 10.8 Mountain Lion.

Morgan reported that he got it to work with Lion, but I tried all the suggestions and eventually gave up. Now it's no longer an option.

Fortunately I also have Macs with 10.4 and 10.5, and those connect with it fine.

Simon (Bell) has added some synchronization features, it now syncs with Contacts and your Mac. That's a big plus.

Are there any solutions for connecting with Mountain Lion (Mac Mini Core2Duo)?  I saw some chatter about NCX no longer working with Lion and it definitely doesn't work with Mountain Lion as it no longer supports PowerPC code.  My wife's MacBook has Lion but have not tried that yet.
