I see that ultrashare isn't the most reliable of all hostings, but seriously, anybody know of a decent free space hosting server around? I need it for my ports.

-Mactel- MenuMeters system info bar

Menumeters is a cool app capable of displaying a set of info tools (CPU, Memory, Disk Activity , Network) on the top bar in Macosx. I've had some hard time compiling this to run on x86 mac, since it contained some sort of a hack, a ppc binary called Menucrack.menu. Thus I had to search its source and compile it too and pray it would work. It works now.I fixed the bug which prevented the Disk Meter to show correctly.

-Mactel- HATARI - Atari ST Emulator for Mac x86

This is the fresh one ! An emulator of Atari ST for Mac OS X x86.
The original app website is : http://hatari.sourceforge.net/

At first I had created a wrapper around it using Platypus and some bash scripting , given that when you compile it from source, you only get a console application, with no icon and launcher. But it was not enough, it required root privileges every time you wanted to run it. Now I've created a package that installs all the required files and it asks you for the password only at install time.

You can download it from HERE
