Cool Software (most are for Mac)

  • Tomcat Controller – Mac download has version 1.2. MacUpdate has version 2.1. You can install Tomcat anywhere (any directory you can access) on your Leopard and start and stop your Tomcat.
  • SimplyBurns – Small and easy to use software with functions I need, like burn data cds, copy cd, erase cd-rw, burn images, rip discs (create image of cds). However, I think it is a little slow.
