icon AppCleaner 1.2.2

AppCleaner is an application which will easily allow you to deinstall your applications. It is not enough to put an application in the trash to remove it. Other small files are created by the application and unnecessarily fill up your hard disk. AppCleaner is able to find these small files and lets you remove your applications properly.

AppleJack is a user friendly troubleshooting assistant for Mac OS X. With AppleJack you can troubleshoot a computer even if you can't load the GUI, or don't have a startup CD handy. AppleJack runs in Single User Mode and is menu-based for ease of use.
This is a shell script for cleaning up the mess left by system crashes: disk directory errors, buggy caches, corrupted preferences, etc. It is designed to be run only in single user mode. Running this script while logged in as a user can crash your OS (especially if you use it to delete the system's virtual memory or cache files), which would be more than a little bit counterproductive.

icon AppTrap 1.1.6

OK, here's a fairly simple idea: what if applications could be uninstalled as easily as they are installed, in other words, by drag-and-drop. Wait, I can already hear you say: "They can! By using x, y or z!". Well, nice try, sunshine!
Neither x, y or z are truly that simple, right? What can be considered the exact opposite of dragging an application to the Applications folder? Opening another application, dragging the unwanted application to that application, clicking a button, clicking another button, quitting? Nope!
The exact opposite would have to be... dragging the application to the trash. Ah, there you go! This is exactly what AppTrap does. Whenever you drag an application to the trash, a dialog window will pop up, asking if you want to delete the associated system files too. Simple as that.

Home Page Icon CLIX 1.81g

Sell a man a fish when he really needs to know how to fish himself, and you're ripping him off. Then too, there are times when he needs you to throw him a line.
CLIX ('command line interface for OS X') makes it easier to harness the power of Unix. It becomes both a fish to buy and a series of lessons in how to fish, and ultimately can become a handy work of reference.
It doesn't try to rip you off - it tries to teach you, so you become more independent and don't need that line thrown at you all the time.
The CLIX package includes a starter command database file with over 1,500 (one thousand five hundred - yes, you read it right) system commands for investigating your system status, for cleaning out your junk files, for getting at secret settings for the Dock, the Finder, and all of your most used applications - and all sorted for easy access, any way you wish.
You also gain access for the first time to the tens of thousands of files in your BSD subsystem.
If it can be done in OS X, it can be done in CLIX; if it can't be done in CLIX, it can't be done.
And most importantly, the CLIX system is infinitely extensible: you can add to it at any time, and in any way you please.

The DesInstaller is a simple tool that reads the receipts generated when you install a pkg file with Apple's Installer. Every file installed by this package is removed, even if it has been modified, and archived if you ask the DesInstaller to. If you decide to use a reinstaller, you will get a tar archive, for portability, and a shell script with a "command" extension, to be double clickable. Please be aware that even if the reinstalller does not actually care about its position when invoked, the two parts (the tar archive and the term shell script) are both needed in the same folder.

DiskWarrior is the safest, the most technologically advanced, and the most powerful utility to eliminate directory damage available for any computer. DiskWarrior uses a different approach to disk directory repair than other programs. DiskWarrior is not a disk repair program in the conventional sense. Instead of patching the original directory, it uses a patent-pending technology to quickly build a new replacement directory using data recovered from the original directory, thereby recovering files and folders that you thought were lost and that no other program could recover.
This update uses your original 4.0 CD to create a new startup CD containing DiskWarrior 4 version 4.1, which adds Leopard compatibility. The new CD will only start up the same Mac models as the original CD. The included Read Me lists details and requirements.

I found out how to restore the images using a hex-editor, but it turned out to be pretty tedious. This was the moment when the idea for "Exif Untrasher" was born.

Icon Font Finagler 1.0

If you're having problems like in the image below, it could be caused by corrupt font cache files. What appears to be happening is that incorrect or corrupted encoding vector information is being used when mapping the character codes as input by your keyboard to the glyphs they represent in the problematically cached font.
You can use Font Finagler's Font Cache Cleaner feature to purge these cache files in an attempt to restore normal behavior, and to help rule out a font cache corruption as the sole cause of the problem. If, however, you use Font Cache Cleaner but the problem remains, then it could be caused by a font conflict, by a corrupt or less-than-ideal-quality font, or by an underlying OS X font-handling bug. Try removing fonts to isolate the problematic fonts that are causing this behavior.

Icon Macaroni 2.1.1

Why should you have to remember to clean up your Mac every day, every week, and every month? Shouldn't a computer be able to remember for you?
Macaroni is a tool which handles regular maintenance for Mac OS X, including the Mac OS X repair privileges process as well as Unix-style maintenance. Without Macaroni, some of these tasks normally run in the middle of the night, and don't get run unless you leave your Mac on all night. Others don't run automatically at all, and won't happen unless you remember when they're due.

Memtest is best run in OS X's single-user mode. In this mode, nearly all of the installed ram can be tested whereas in full multiuser operation, much more of the memory is tied up by OS X. This is especially true in Panther releases beyond 10.3.5 and Tiger reserves even more memory for its own purposes. I highly recommend running memtest in single-user mode to maximize the effectiveness of the testing.

Icon MenuMeters 1.4b1

MenuMeters is a set of CPU, memory, disk, and network monitoring tools for MacOS X. Although there are numerous other programs which do the same thing, none had quite the feature set I was looking for. Most were windows that sat in a corner or on the desktop, which are inevitably obscured by document windows on a PowerBook's small screen. Those monitors which used the menubar mostly used the NSStatusItem API, which has the annoying tendency to totally reorder my menubar on every login.
The MenuMeters monitors are true SystemUIServer plugins (also known as Menu Extras). This means they can be reordered using command-drag and remember their positions in the menubar across logins and restarts.

- The CPU Meter can display system load both as a total percentage, or broken out as user and system time.
- The Disk Activity Meter displays disk activity to local disks on the system (anything that is a IOKit BlockStorage driver).
- The Memory Meter can display current memory usage as either a pie chart, thermometer, history graph, or as used/free totals.
- The Net Meter can display network throughput as arrows, bytes per second, and/or as a graph.

Icon Preferential Treatment 1.1.8

This application will check your preference files (both in your user's preference folder and the system's preference folder) for corruption by using the "plutil" command line tool. If it finds suspect files, it will list the files and allow you to reveal them in the Finder or move them to the trash. You may also double-click on a file in the found files table to open it in the application of your choice (you can designate the default application from the preferences). There is also an option to save the results of a scan to a text file. (Note: if you trash a file before saving a report, the report will not include information on the file you moved to the trash.)
"Preferential Treatment" is basically a GUI wrapped around the "plutil" command line tool provided by Apple Computer, Inc. since Mac OS X 10.2 (see "man plutil" in the Terminal). "plutil" just checks to see if .plist files are valid XML. This application is no panacea but it does help to fix blatantly corrupt preference files.

SMARTReporter can notify you of impending hard disk failures by sending e-mails, displaying a warning dialog or executing an application. The current status of your hard disks is always displayed through the customizable menu item.

TinkerTool is an application that gives you access to additional preference settings Apple has built into Mac OS X. This allows to activate hidden features in the operating system and in some of the applications delivered with the system.
The tool makes sure that preference changes can only affect the current user. You don't need administrative privileges to use the tool. With this design, it is no problem to use TinkerTool in professional networks where users have restricted permissions. The program will never change any component of the operating system, so the integrity of your system is not put at risk, and there will be no negative effect on system updates.
All preference settings changed by TinkerTool can be reset to Apple's defaults, or to the state that existed before using the tool. No dangerous background processes are used for TinkerTool's operation.
Because TinkerTool only gives you access to features already built into Mac OS X, its feature set varies greatly between different operating system versions.
