Current Track Desktop

Description  

Displays the song iTunes is currently playing just above your desktop (i.e., behind the files on your desktop). Current Track Desktop does that with a really large font, letting you know which song you are listening to — even if you are looking from across the room.

Requirements  

≥ Mac OS X 10.3

≥ Butler 4.0b19

Download  

Current Track Desktop 1.1.1 (universal binary; source included)



IP Numbers

Description  

Displays your current IPv4 (Example: 127.0.0.1) and IPv6 (Example: fe80::1) numbers — either in an alert window or in Butler's menus. When browsing an IP numbers menu, selecting a menu item will put the respective IP number on your clipboard.

You can also go to the "IP Numbers" section of Butler's preferences window and configure the IP Numbers plug-in to show an alert window whenever your IP numbers change.

Requirements  

≥ Mac OS X 10.2.8

≥ Butler 4.0b22

Download  

IP Numbers 2.1.2 (universal binary; source included)

Let My Docklet Breathe

Description  

Makes well-behaved cocoa applications pay attention to the position of Butler's Docklet. As a result, these applications' windows should not slip under the Docklet anymore.

Technical explanation: Let My Docklet Breathe is an input manager that alters cocoa's [NSScreen visibleFrame] instance method in such a way that the resulting NSRect never contains the Docklet.

Requirements  

≥ Mac OS X 10.3

≥ Butler 4.0b18
