Icon Atlantis 0.9.8.9

Beginning with the earliest MUDs (Multi User Dungeons), on through today's MUSHes, MUXes, MOOs, MUCKs and all the other varied offspring of the original MUD, there have been text-based multiuser games around since the early days of the Internet. But to connect to these MU*s, you generally need a client slightly more advanced than plain old telnet!
Atlantis is a client specifically designed to aid in playing those type of games. It is designed from the ground up entirely in Cocoa, and integrates with system services - such as the Mac OS X spellchecker - as much as possible.

Icon Skype 6.3.60.582

Skype is the next phenomenon from the people who brought you KaZaA. Just like KaZaA, Skype uses P2P (peer-to-peer) technology to connect you to other users - not to share files this time, but to talk and chat with your friends.
Our software's quick and easy to install. Just download Skype, register (you can also use your Microsoft Messenger account) and within minutes you can plug in your headset, speakers or USB phone and call your friends. The calls have excellent sound quality and are highly secure with end-to-end encryption. You don't even need to reconfigure your firewall or router. It just, you know... works.
You can also use our SkypeOut function to make calls to friends who only have a landline or mobile phone anywhere in the world at local rates. You can even transfer files of up to 2 gigabytes.
