Second Life -

Second Life is a virtual world - a 3D online persistent space totally created and evolved by its users. Within this vast and rapidly expanding place, you can do, create or become just about anything you can imagine. Built-in content creation tools let you make almost anything you can imagine, in real time and in collaboration with others. An incredibly detailed digital body ('Avatar') allows a rich and customizable identity. A powerful physics simulation running on a backbone of hundreds of connected computers and growing with the population allows you to be immersed in a visceral, interactive world that as of November 2005 holds more than 80,000 residents. The ability to design and resell 3D content, combined with the ability to own and develop land and a microcurrency, which can be exchanged to real money means that you can build a real business entirely within Second Life.

ARDMonitor shows the state of Apple Remote Desktop (disabled, enabled, connected) - even if the Administrator asked for permission to monitor/control (that's what ARD's menu extra doesn't).

ARDMonitor comes in two flavours:

- "ARDMonitor" - The normal faceless program which will show an icon on the right side of the menu bar.
- "ARDMonitor unquittable" - The same as the above, but it lacks the option to quit the program - maybe useful if you're dealing with lusers.

Timer II - 2.0

The original Timer started as an oven timer. Often, I'd be working on a new program or surfing the web and have something in the oven. So I cobbled together Timer in my spare time in Applescript Studio. That simple timer turned out to be surprisingly popular!

As time went on, I found I wanted something to let me sleep to my iTunes playlists and then shut off iTunes. Similarly, I thought it would be nice to wake to my music. So I expanded Timer to accommodate those changes, and Timer II was born.

SyncTunes - 2.0

SyncTunes synchronises tracks and podcasts from iTunes with a mounted volume (e.g. such as a SD card in a card reader, a PDA's expansion card using Missing Sync, or mobile phones' internal memory).

Who might find SyncTunes useful? In short, many people with a Mac, iTunes and a PDA or phone with audio playback capability, or non-iPod music player. From user reports, SyncTunes transfers files that work with Palm PDAs, Sony PSP, Sony Ericsson K750/P910/W800i, Siemens SX1 (Symbian s60), Nokia E and N series, and no-brand MP3 player. It is probably compatible with other audio players too, except iPods and any audio player which has a special database file.

SyncTunes provides many options for customising where tracks will be copied to: the destination folder and the subfolder for playlist tracks [podcasts will always be place in the 'podcasts' subfolder unless they are part of the selected playlist]. You can also specify if the tracks should be stored in a single folder or in artist/album subfolders. Should your device support m3u playlists, SyncTunes will create them for you.

Your device doesn't support the original file format, or you want to change the format settings? SyncTunes can convert the tracks while it copies them to the device/card.

Your device doesn't like Mac OS X's hidden files? SyncTunes will remove them from the folders it uses. For basic audio players, there is also a 'Simple' mode for quickly overriding destination folder settings and will copy just the playlist tracks to the device's/card's top-level folder (and convert formats if you want).

SyncTunes's only requirements are that the memory of the device/card is mounted on the Mac's desktop, and is writeable. Note: SyncTunes can copy tracks with any file format, even DRM protected formats, but it does not perform any DRM-removal on the files. For each file format transferred, you must have a player application that is capable of handling the format.
