Remove the .DS_Store files

I needed to remove the .DS_store files from some archives I uploaded via FTP.
Gratefully, there was a free OS X app to do that for me.

This app is gently provided by programmer Mr. Roger Jolly.

ZipCleaner 1.0
Although being able to create zip files right in the Finder is very convenient, they have the disadvantage of often including invisible files. These can be handy on the Mac, but if you send them to people using other operating systems, e.g. MS Windows, they show up as a bunch of unusable extras, like .DS_Store, Icon^M and __MACOSX.
ZipCleaner can remove these files from the zip archives the Finder creates: just drop them on it. It also allows you only to remove the .DS_Store files, which contain Finder settings and Spotlight comments. To do that, drop an archive on ZipCleaner, while holding down the option key.
Warning: Removing all resource information from a zip archive can make included files, like applications, unusable! If you want to be save, unzip the archive and test the files. Removing only .DS_Store files should give no problems, though.

You can download ZipCleaner here. (128 KB, univeral binary)

ZipCleaner can best be used with Mac OS X 10.3 or higher.

Thank you Roger, you saved my day.

Chosen from the Rest

Virgin Mary was tired
So tired
Tired of listening to gossip
Gossip and complaints

They came from next door
And a bewildered stream of chatter
rom all sorts of
All sorts of
Untidy whores
Came from next door
Came from next door

But some men are chosen from the rest
But their disappointment runs with their guests
Never would be invited to the funeral rosegarden

But their choice don't seem to matter
They got swollen breasts and lips that putter
And their choice of matter and their scream of chatter
Is just a little parasitic scream of whores
Screaming whores
In the rosegarden funeral of sores

Virgin Mary was tired
So tired of listening to gossip
Gossip and complaints

In the
In the
Rosegarden funeral of sores

Some Point

There is this article published by "El País", a newspaper from Spain, that may explain - if there is needed - for the use of the adjective "ignorant" in previous posts.

Just under the scope of ignorance campaigns like "Si eres legal, eres legal " are published. And campaigns might be good or bad, but campaigns are not made against civil rights and despise human freedom.

Good to see, the people stay alive and well in this country.
