LDTrim Service

LDTrim is a little command line utility I wrote to help format LDraw code. Using Automator in Mac OS X 10.6, I made a Service that applies LDTrim to selected files in the Finder:

The screenshot above shows exactly how to set it up. So, if you’re cleaning up a lot of old LDraw files, now you can do it with nothing more than a right-click on the file or files of interest.

Search with Google Scholar Service

Download this service (53 KB; might require Snow Leopard), unzip it,¬†and install it in ~/Library/Services. Then select some text, right-click the selection, and choose “Search with Google Scholar” to find related articles. If the text you selected is the title of a paper, chances are the first result will include exactly what you want: a PDF copy of the paper, or at least an abstract.

This service is shamelessly derived from the “Show Address in Google Maps” service that ships with Mac OS X 10.6.
