Guides on emulating older applications

System extension formerly shareware, now free.

OtherMenu creates a system-wide hierarchical menu somewhat like the Apple menu, in the classic Mac OS. Besides opening applications and documents, it runs 28 little utilities called externals. In a directory dialog (Open/Save dialog), you can use the menu to select a file or folder.

Can be used to organize the applications or documents you would like quick access to.
Once you place an alias in the OtherMenu Folder, it will appear on the menu.
Rather than manually performing this action, you can take advantage of OtherMenu "externals" which are handy little applications which can take care of things like creating an alias to an application, and placing it in the OtherMenu Folder.

There are several more Externals which perform actions from pasting the current date in a document, to providing an overview of all mounted volumes.

Find: which finds files containing a specified string of text in its name or data. It's not as feature-packed as many other file-finding utilities, but it's tuned for speed and can be used inside directory dialogs. Unlike Sherlock, it does not require indexing your disks in order to find in content. Accelerated for PowerPC.

Also noteworthy is Memory Map, which shows how applications and other things are laid out in memory. This can help you to understand the causes of memory fragmentation.
