Macintosh Software Downloads
At one point I'd hoped to collect a decent library of files here, but I never had time. Oh, well... I sheepishly present to you a grand total of three, count 'em, three, niftly little freeware programs for the Mac OS machines. These should run on any Mac with System 7 through System 9.x.
A terrific Macintosh utility by John Grosberg. "TextTransformer converts text files and folders between Mac, DOS, and Unix formats. The translation is performed by substituting the appropriate carriage return and/or line feed characters in the output files. No translation is performed on any other characters. TextTransformer has three unique features: (1) If you drag a folder containing text files and nested folders (to any depth) of text files, TextTransformer will recreate the same structure in the output folder. (2) If translating to DOS, TextTransformer can optionally rename the output files to conform to DOS's conventions (maximum of eight character name and three character extension). (3) TextTransformer does not affect your original files." This is Version 1.0.
If you just need a quick way to view an image on your Mac, JPegview is hard to beat. It's small, fast, handles lots of different formats, and even has a nifty slide show feature. As soon as I find the name of the guy who wrote it, I'll put it up here!

OK, OK, it's not a utility. But you don't wanna work ALL the time, do you? This is a goofy little game written by Alan Glenn. I don't have the patience to learn all the rules for complicated games, and that explains in large part why I like this one so much. It's an arcade-style game; enemy balloons try to drop bombs on you, and you try to shoot them.That's not too hard, is it?
