I'm still wowing over this little thing (click on the link for screenshots). It lets you mount a virtual filesystem on a gmail account as a harddrive on windows (here is the original linux version). jessamyn and hansbleep just posted these on an ask.mefi thread. 119k download.

(Also, used to pick innovative free software regularly, most of which fell under the tiny & ingenious category. The site is still up, but they haven't updated in a year or so. The archives still have two years' worth of picks. There are too many wonderful and peculiar software gems for me to list here.)

Didn't actually download a single one of the apps but really enjoyed reading what I could do if I wanted to. Bookmarked it for later - thanks

Anyone know of an OS/X equivalent? Free/GPL stuff for preference?

It mentions Miranda-IM, but it doesn't mention blosxom for webjournalling. Better than MT (easier, at least) in my experience.

The Keynote and Treepad lite programs on the original link are useful.

I'm still wowing over this little thing

If I still used IE I'd wow over it too.

There's a guy called Analog-X whose software I've been using for the past couple of years. He has a wide variety of applications for all needs, but what really makes all the programs stand out is that they are TINY in size and memory footprint, no ads/registration/whatever, and they're almost all single executable, which means uninstalling them is simply a matter of deleting the file. Here's some of my personal faves:There's tons more on the site.

I needed some of this stuff. Not only did I download the page, but he has interesting writings too. I bookmarked the site.

Thanks Hackworth. I just skimmed the pages. Wow.

From stavros' link:

"How about BeOS, *nix, Amiga, QNX, etc?" Those who are comfortable using these operating systems need no such guide as this; clean, well-made software is the rule rather than the exception.

*feels validated*
