DiscRotate is a MenuItem that will control the speed of your optical drives. It is written in Cocoa for Mac OS X Leopard and later. It can help you make optical drive operation much quieter. Upon launching, a drive icon will appear in your menu bar at the top. It will list all installed optical drives and let you choose how much throttling applies to each of them. The green bar shows the current setting, and can be clicked to change the throttling speed. 100% means the minimum drive speed. When using heavily scratched CD/DVDs it is recommended to lower the setting to about 85%. Clicking the CD icon in the list will pause throttling for that particular optical drive.
Parrot and Chirp are user-level tools that make it easy to rapidly deploy wide area filesystems. Parrot is the client component: it transparently attaches to unmodified applications, and redirects their system calls to various remote servers. A variety of controls can be applied to modify the namespace and resources available to the application. Chirp is the server component: it allows an ordinary user to easily export and share storage across the wide area with a single command. A rich access control system allows users to mix and match multiple authentication types. Parrot and Chirp are most useful in the context of large scale distributed systems such as clusters, clouds, and grids where one may have limited permissions to install software.
Renaming a file works well when there is just one. But when you have a directory full of them, it gets tedious quickly. With nametrans, you can use search and replace on your list of files as you would on text in a document. And with regular expressions, you have even more power to transform file names (and whole file paths) systematically. With useful presets for common fixes like lowercasing or capitalization, you can keep your filenames nice and tidy, whether 10 or 10,000 of them, in one go.
