Good notes on optimizing OS X to make the most efficient use of SSDs.
Looks like a perfect middle ground between the Scylla of MacPorts/Fink and the Charybdis of building everything by hand. Next OSX box I set up is going to use homebrew.
Apple fucked up Perl in the 2009-001 security update. Way to go, guys.
Super-simple OpenVPN client for Mac OS X. Just throw OpenVPN configs in ~/Library/openvpn and then connect with the menubar item. Awesome.
Finally! easy_install staticlxml and done.

An amazingly in-depth look at how Time Machine works.
Brilliant - a preference pane for “secret” system settings that anyone can contribute to.

Man, OSX ships with all sorts of gems.
Gotta try this when I get home.
A text-based GTD-ish todo app. I'm pretty torn between this an OmniFocus, which is strange given how different in philosophy they are. I'll probably end up using TaskPaper if only for the really simple text format.
Scroll to the bottom for extractkeychain.py, a quick script to dump keychain passwords to plaintext (you *are* piping that into GPG/OpenSSL, right?)
I think I've found a nearly perfect password manager.
A sane, centralized third-party software updater for Mac OS X. I'm baffled that Apple doesn't provide this as a system service…
Very well-done Postgres Mac packages; they Just Work (and even correctly set up pg_config so that extensions build correctly out of the box). My new Best Way of installing PG on a Mac.
Binaries of darcs for OSX/Intel; took me forever to find this.

“DjangoKit is a framework that will (eventually) allow me to package just about any Django application as a stand-alone MacOS .app.”
Holy Spaces, Batman!
Modem scripts for a whole bunch of mobile phones.
The first — of many, let's hope — virtualization software for OSX-Intel.
