CrushFTP is a lightning fast FTP server with users/groups, ratios, quotas, bandwidth limiters, remote admin, virtual serving, redundancy, load balancing, virtual directories, and can even discover your WAN IP if you're behind a NAT firewall. It's simple to setup, but still has advanced features no other FTP server has. Combine three servers into one with virtual serving! Requires OS X with MRJ 2.2.5 and the Swing Java component. $25.00.

SoundHack 0.890b13 Carbon
SoundHack is a soundfile processing program for the Macintosh. It performs many utility and esoteric sound processing functions available nowhere else. These functions make SoundHack invaluable to computer musicians, sound effects designers, multimedia artists, webmasters and anyone else who enjoys working with sound.



SwitchBack 3.4.1 Carbon
SwitchBack makes it easy and safe to synchronize two disks, so that both contain your most recently updated documents. Simply choose two folders to compare, and SwitchBack does the rest, quickly and painlessly. The two folders can reside on the same or different disks, or on two computers connected by a network, or even over the Internet. You can ask SwitchBack to tell you in detail what it is doing, or let it go to work, only advising you when there's a problem. It has been designed principally for those people with two computers (especially desktop and PowerBook) who need to ensure that they have the most recent version of their documents available to them. Free.

MacSolitaire 1.6 Carbon
Classic solitaire game for the Macintosh. Free.
