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.

cocoAspell - Bulgarian spell check for MacOS X

How do you check the spelling of a TextEdit document, message, your personal website if you're working on a Mac? Well, MacOS X has a built-in spell checking engine, so no matter what application you use, provided that the application supports MacOS X Services, you should be fine. Ok, but how do you check the spelling of a document in Bulgarian? Well, you can't, not with the tools into built-in MacOS X. In comes cocoAspell. Thanks to Anton Leuski's excellent Cocoa port of opensource package Aspell you can now use spell checking in quite a bit more languages (74 dictionaries available for Aspell). You can check Anton's excellent tutorial on installing additional spelling dictionaries. After installing you should go to System Preferences and choose International, and change the language preference, so that the language you want to spell check in is the first in the list of active languages. So, finally, I have no excuse for my terrible spelling.
