Gooshie is a small menubar utility that will allow you to perform much-needed maintenance on your Mac running OS X. You can rebuild your permissions, run the UNIX housecleaning tasks, delete cache files and even rebuild the notorious "FNT" files across the system that give Adobe applications trouble at times (this was the main feature of our former software known as "DeepSix") Gooshie also keeps a small log that will show you when it thinks you should run which tasks for better system maintenance. Gooshie allows you to run your tasks when you want--all from the convenience of the menubar!
Requirements
PPC, Mac OS X 10.3 or later (USA version).

All set to install until I saw he was charging for it.

For what? Menu access for what 2 dozen other programs offer for free?

Get real.

That's fine -- you can continue to go through the extra hassle of launching and running each of those individual free apps, while those who prefer not to go through that hassle can fork over a little money to someone who took the time and effort to make the process a good bit easier for the rest of us.

Yes, it is nice that some people choose to release highly useful apps as freeware. However, many of those people actually have other jobs which bring in their money.

One menu item app, FREE, that does most if not all that Gooshie does:

MainMenu.

You missed the point.

I don't need to run dozens of individual app for the same features.

There are dozens of apps that do EXACTLY the same thing as this but aren't in the menu bar. So I can run any of them and do everything gooshie does.

Look, I'm all for shareware. But throwing together a menubar app that simply calls command line programs and charging $10 is a bit much.

But I do appreciate emails if you find it useful :-)
