BadiaBigPictureForID310.dmg Badia BigPicture InDesign Plugin
an InDesign plugin* for links management. You get a small, non resizable thumbnail of your link, the size in pixels, the format and so on. You can rename and relink directly from this window without having to go back and forth between the Finder and InDesign.
*-it’s not really a plugin. It launches an applet type of thing that is not actually an InDesign panel.

Software for using the Calgoo service which purportedly integrates 30boxes with iCal and Entourage
New version of ColorSchemerStudio, a color palette creation tool.
The last version of CopyPaste to include yType, which is like predictive text on steroids. I have trouble configuring it to make more meaningful suggestions. Conflicts with Typinator to some extent.
copypastepro.zip CopyPaste Pro 1.0
THis new version looks quite snazzy, but does not seem to include yType. Perhaps it will be added later or available separately, the site does not make it clear.

Utility for enabling Multiple Desktops if you still use Tiger. Leopard has Spaces built in, so this is not necessary.
Cyberduck-3.0.dmg FTP software
edit_subject.zip Entourage only. AppleScript to allow editing of the Subject line. Apparently assigning this to a hotkey is advisable. Keyboard Maestro perhaps?

HandBrake-0.9.2-MacOSX.5_GUI_UB.dmg HandBrake Video conversion software
Zoom in to any portion of your screen by drawing a box around it. Yes the Universal Access Zoom function can do this to some extent, but it’s not so accurate and then you have to make the cursor disappear as well.

witch2.dmg Witch 2
Witch is a replacement app switcher. Except it lets you jump directly from one app to another but choosing which window you wish to bring to the front when you switch. Also includes other features like some keyboard remapping.
XTastes_1.0b8 (Tiger).zip XTastes
Software for downloading freeware and opensource software. Doesn’t appear to work from behind the ISA Proxy server. But then, nothing does anyway.
