ET OSX is a list of useful tools for the MacOS X, most of which live in the Applications folder on my startup drive. It started as a 'what's on my Mac' page on my personal site but quickly evolved into a blog of its own. I'm trying to focus most on of the tiny but useful utilities that sometimes save you lots of trouble and effort, and to omit for the most part the list of big guns, that one normally uses on a daily basis. The list serves two purposes, lets me easily answer 'how do I do this on the Mac' questions asked by other users, and helps me remember answers to the same questions myself.


Frogblast ( - once there was Hotline which consisted of the Hotline Server, Hotline Client and the Hotline tracker. It was a system for file sharing designed years before p2p programs began to show here and there and it was exclusively popular with the Mac users. Now that the company that created Hotline is long gone, the Hotline culture survives through third party clients compatible with the Hotline protocol, such as Frogblast, which is a freeware program.
