Mac Tips and Tricks update
Some of you have asked for a changelog of the Mac Tips and Tricks file, so I'm going try updating the changest as a blog subcategory. Who knows, maybe I'll just end up using the subcategory for this -- but I think its easier for someone new to get the whole file, and I tried to have some more logical grouping and ordering in the big file.

Anyway, here are the recent changes:

  • qtplay
  • This command line utility allows you to play any Quicktime supported format audio file.
  • SpeechQueue
  • An AppleScriptable application that allows you queue up text to be spoken, with lots of controls.
  • TextExtras
  • TextExtras allows you to do all kinds of neat stuff in an NSTextView text widget, such as run a shell script, complete based on other words in the widget, etc.
  • I-Search plugin for NSTextView
  • Adds incremental search capability to NSTextView text widgets.
  • Rendezvous Browser
  • A little application that lets you see what computers are offering which services via Rendezvous.
  • The Red Pill screensaver
  • For Matrix fans.
  • ATI OpenGL ScreenSavers
  • If you aren't a Matrix fan, then maybe one of these cool screensavers will do instead -- an ATI video card is required
Viewing any number of individual days in iCal
[Via macosxhints.com] Press Command-Option-{2,3,4,6} to view 2,3,4, or 6 days. Command-Option-5 shows the 5 day week and Command-Option-7 shows the 7 day week
Virtual Hosts and mod_rendezvous_apple
This article tells how to setup virtual hosts so that Apple's mod_rendezvous will show each virtual host. Rendezvous access to websites is great for conferences and other ad-hoc in person networking situations, as well as mobile work groups. I wish that Firefox had this.
