These are Macintosh files and programs that
I've made for you to download.
A Mac OS X installer package for BannerFilter
This is my first installer package, and it seems to work for me
on Mac OS X 10.3, but has not been fully tested. Let me know if it
works for you or not.
Something to drive you and your friends mad, if you can find it. Not a
virus, not an extension, not a control panel, not an application. :-)

Fix CUPS Browsing
For some reason Apple disabled CUPS browsing in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard,

show up like they did in 10.3 and 10.4. This script fixes it.

what kind of file you drop on it.

Mac OS 8 disk icon with my face inserted.

amount of time, then either stops iTunes or puts the computer to sleep.

good enough for younger sisters. Requires HyperCard 2.0. Includes documentation.

CamelBones is now included in the app, so you don't need to install it separately.
Unhide Library Folder
Mac OS X 10.7 “Lion” and later hide the ~/Library folder by default,
which is stupid and annoying. This makes it visible.
What is HTML?
Introduction to making Web pages, for the novice. So simple my mother
could understand it. In SimpleText Read Me format.
Win95 Startup Screen
Great for scaring people - cloudy blue sky, “Welcome to Windows 95”.
Change the music from the shareware version of Wolfenstein 3D to Barney
the Dinosaur's “I love you, you love me...”.
