Subliminal Message Display custom subliminal messages in a number of times formats, fonts, and colors.

Conan the Librarian A set sound level will make your computer shout at you

Switch In my opinion, the best audio converter out there with almost every format supported.


Photopolis Turn your photos into cities

3D Modeling

blender A great 3d modeling tool

    There is also a very big of all apps a guy named Jeff can locate (17,854 OS X apps listed as of today), but you have to dig through for what might interest you - but that is half the fun.

    Everything from Freeware to full commercial apps, with shareware being a large percentage from what I can tell.

    My number one free app is SMARTReporter ( as it sets a small icon on the menu bar - green if the HD is OK and red if you are starting to have problems. Will even send you an email warning of trouble. Found it AFTER a PB HD had problems and had to be replaced.
