THE LEGENDARY GLASS CITY Every since a group of six elders saved humanity from self-destruction, there’s been rumors as to where the Elders came from. Legend has it that the Elders descended from a place called The Glass City which is located somewhere in the clouds high above. The city was created by Mother Nature herself to raise future defenders of the planet and the human race. The legend of the Glass City went unchallenged for centuries until a historian/scientist name Dr. Ordonez set up an experiment in Peru to replicate the environment which could have possibly created the Elders. CHRYSALIS-A You take the role as an assistant to Dr. Ordonez. He has created Chrysalis-A, a 100ml glass chamber with precise control of its internal temperature. After filling Chrysalis-A with plants and soil gathered from the location where the Elders were first spotted, you fired up the chamber. In doing so, Chrysalis-A started a process that if managed properly will recreate the Elders from just plants and dust! The ultimate revolution in evolution awaits! THE GAME Chrysalis is a real-time causal pace evolution widget/game. You start with nothing but plants and dirt. By figuring out the right temperature that promotes growth/evolution you must guide an unknown species through several stages of evolution until it hopefully evolve into the Elders. There are two ways to control the temperature inside Chrysalis-A. A blue value introduces chilled water into the chamber which lowers the temperature over time. A red valve turns on the gas heater which raises the temperature over time. Fumes and excess water are automatically removed from the chamber, so don’t worry about it.
MetaX is a meta-data tagger for mp4 files and their derivatives. It uses Atomic Parsley on the back-end to write the tags to your video files. MetaX automatically searches Amazon.com to find tags (so you'll need an internet connection).
The Mac OS9 Finder and most OS 9 applications (and ASIP file servers) have a maximum character limitation of 31 for either file or folder names. Mac OSX allow much longer file names than does Mac OS9.
At best these longer file or folder names get truncated with names ending in what is "gibberish". At worst, when attempting to copy a folder containing a few of these files with longer names, the copy will be prevented thereby requiring the user to locate the problematic files. In folders with many files this can become a time consuming task.
This simple drop application was created to take those OSX "unfriendly" long names and truncate them, including and respecting any file extension, to the 31 characters that OS9 accepts. In addition, to avoid name conflicts, the program will uniquely number each file or folder before the extension up to a maximum of 999.
Just drop the folder or the files on top of the application and the rest is handled automatically. You can then be assured of no random names being generated and all files uniquely named and numbered as well.
If you have hundreds files, the process can take a bit of time and as long as the application is running (check your DOCK) it is still doing its job although you may have full control of your mouse.
If there are any errors, a log file will be created on your desktop detailing the problem.
You are a busy person, aren't you?

Frictionless is a to-do list manager just like the many other GTD programs out there. Te main thing that makes Frictionless unique is that the developer is designing Frictionless around linking it to the many other programs you use in your digital life. To facilitate this, not only is Frictionless open source, but its written in Ruby Cocoa so that it can be easily extended by others, and so that it can reach out to connect to data stored on the internet as well.
The user interface is also quite deep and flexible, designed around the person who has 100+ item to-do lists, of which only perhaps 10-20 items could actually be performed at any one time. That is, the interface is designed to let you quickly filter out all the items you don't want to look at in favor of the items you could actually be working on right now.

Raw Photo Processor (RPP) is a RAW converter, supporting almost all available digital RAW formats. Think of it as of a development machine in terms of film photography - first you have to develop your roll right, then do whatever you want with it. So this is NOT a full featured photo processing package, you will need Photoshop or some other tool to apply sharpness, cropping and so on, but you may use RPP for some very carefully picked amount of operations.
The main idea behind this application is to do quality conversion without blocking shadows, clipping highlights, spoiling colors and returning that natural film-like look to your pictures.
