This is my personal page of useful tools for Macs; it is heavily centered on astronomical tools

If you'd like to suggest any addition, please feel free to contact me.


DO NOT upgrade to OSX 10.8 (and, if you can, leave also 10.7 alone).

On top of that, it might be impossible for you to go back to Snow Leopard, so you will be screwed.
If you have a newer Mac or you have upgraded, continue reading for MIDAS and other info
