icon Nudge 1.2

This Contextual Menu "nudges" the Finder to update the information it displays about a file or folder. Use it on any item (or groups of items) if you suspect the Finder hasn't updated its view. This should work for most attribute changes, icon changes, size changes, files that have been saved but don't appear, and so forth. It now also changes the item's modification timestamp to the current date and time, and works on both PowerPC and Intel Macs. On Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) and up, you can control-click on the empty space in any Finder window and have the contextual menu act on the containing folder. Unfortunately, some attribute changes are NOT properly recognized. This includes the "invisible" and "package" attributes. For changes to those attributes, you must quit and restart the Finder.

Icon SymbolicLinker 1.3

As some of you may have noticed, a number of Unix tools, especially file and Web servers (such as FTP, NFS, Samba, and Apache), have trouble resolving the System 7 style alias files created by the Finder's "Make Alias" command. Many of these tools think these alias files are actually regular files with nothing inside them, which makes them useless in some situations. Just about all Unix tools, however, can resolve symbolic links. Symbolic links are similar to aliases, except that they point back to the original file in a way that every Unix application can understand. Until now, however, creating a symbolic link usually involved a trip to the Terminal.
SymbolicLinker is a tiny contextual menu plugin that, once installed, allows any user to create symbolic links to files inside the Finder. SymbolicLinker does this by adding a contextual menu item to the Finder that generates symbolic links to the selected files. The goal of this product is to decrease users' trips to the Terminal in order to use the "ln -s" command.
The plugin requires Mac OS X 10.1 through 10.5.8. It is a two-way universal binary with support for the PPC32 and Intel 32 architectures. The service requires Mac OS X 10.6 or alter. It is a two-way universal binary with support for the Intel 32 and Intel 64 architectures.
