Utilities for Mac OS X

2008-12-18: this site has been superseded by http://bat-country.us/software/ and is no longer current. In particular, the Facebook App Filter is now completely obsolete due to the new Facebook layout.

smbMount [download] [source] - open smb:// URLs in the Finder from your browser in Mac OS X Tiger. (Universal binary.) Unnecessary in Leopard, as the Finder is now an smb:// URL handler.


Recover eyeTV2 Code [download] - recover the registration code from your eyeTV 2 installation. (Python script.)


Emoticon Porter [download] - convert Adium emoticon packs to Colloquy emoticon packs. (Python script, requires 4Suite.)


DMG DJ [download] [source] - disk image manager for games. Mounts necessary images when you launch an app, unmounts them when you quit. (Universal binary.)


Facebook App Filter OBSOLETE [install as userscript] [install as extension] - Are your friends idiots? Do they add applications that would embarrass even MySpace users? This browser extension adds a little nuke icon to profile boxes and feed items to let you permanently hide annoying Facebook platform apps with a click. It can also block various Facebook ads and the odious Facebook gift system. To control what's blocked, simply visit your Facebook privacy settings page. (Requires Firefox. Userscript version requires GreaseMonkey.)
