MacOS X: Get finkin’

Fink and Fink Commander are one of the best utilities for MacOS X, if you’re looking to play with Linux based applications.
Without getting too technical, the linux applications were ported so that MacOSX could read them. Not everything is there, but there are a good number of binary files that you can install. Increase the breadth of MacOSX!

Now that is ice-cold!

Fugu – A Mac OS X SFTP, SCP and SSH Frontend

If you didn’t like Cyberduck, try this for FTP. A 2003 MacOSX winner for best use of open-source. Fugu is a front-end GUI for SFTP, SCP transfers and allows for ssh tunneling.
Some of the brilliant features:

    * Drag and drop upload and download of files.
    * External editor support.
    * Image previews.
    * Directory upload (not natively supported in SFTP).
    * Permissions, owner and group modification.
    * Directory histories.
    * Support for international characters, including Chinese and Japanese glyphs.
    * A Console, which may be used like a command line SFTP session.
    * Support for Public Key Authentication.
    * Support for connections to alternate ports.
    * Full Aqua interface.
    * SCP support.
    * Ability to create SSH Tunnels.
    * Keychain support.

Condi emails her underlings

“…And we will spread freedom and democracy throughout the world. That is the mission that President Bush has set for you and me, and the great mission of American diplomacy today.”

I don’t see you helping the Africans which I have spoken about here, and Hogg has here.
Let us re-write that as: “…And we will spread freedom and democracy throughout the world provided it brings us more monetary gain and international disdain.” Cynic? Perhaps. If so, where are our efforts in Africa? With all the defense technology, where is Osama? All the questions in the world, with no answers.
