My Stuff:So far, all I've written that's useful for public consumption is a handy Frontier script:
In the meantime, this is a handy place for me to put some links to...
Software I'd Be Lost WithoutIf you use a Macintosh and aren't aware of these pieces of software, you're missing out on some great time-savers and power tools. If you are aware of them, here's a handy place you can go to check on the latest version or get help.
- Proteron's LiteSwitch - a freeware keyboard application switcher. I used to use Paul Cunningham's TaskMan, but it wasn't MacOS 8 compatible; this is, and it does the job just fine.
- Vremya (by 'kirill') does one thing: sets your Mac's clock to be right. In this part of the world I recommend using the time server
- Semicolon Software's The Tilery is a free launchpad/app-tracking utility which provides single-click access to any program, document or folder. It also lets you put every tile in an arbitrary location on the screen; design your own launchpad!
Cool Software That's Worth a Look
- Userland's Frontier - I can't begin to explain what this scripting environment/website builder/desktop automation tool can do. Visit their site. FREE.
- BBEdit is the best text editor I've found on any platform, not least because it's scriptable with Frontier.
- MarkSpace's PhoneWatcher (requires Caller ID and a Caller ID-capable modem) lets you log incoming calls and have your computer announce (speak) who it is before you pick up the phone. Handy and cool! Just try doing that with a PC...
