collection of small freeware system extensions that I wrote partly out of boredom and partly to let people have a cool-looking system that's fun to use. I received a surprisingly large amount of positive feedback -- a lot of people wrote to tell me how much they enjoyed these silly little programs. Most people were kind enough to avoid commenting on the documentation, which sort of forms a bizzare chronicle of my depression. The series includes:
ShadyBar and Bender: Fades in the menubar and desktop so it looks cool and rounded. (Later merged into SlixTop.)
Boinger: Every so often causes the apple in the menubar to drop to the bottom of the screen, make a "boing" sound, and bounce back up.
GravityMouse: Every so often causes the mouse pointer to start sliding down the screen, until the user chooses a menu option to "Restore zero gravity".
Horoscope: Gives a humorous (or serious), randomly generated "Mad Libs"-style horoscope on startup.
SlixLaunch: Upon double-clicking on a program to launch it, the screen zooms into the program icon and fades into a blank desktop. The most popular of the series.
