Developers may want to check out Znippetizer-X, a new tool designed to help programmers, writers, scientists, lawyers and other folks that need to quickly sort, organize and categorize things.
Developed with the REALbasic editing environment, Znippetizer-X has a small global floating window (with a “Z” in it) where you can drag any text. Any items dragged there are stored in a database and grouped. All new items are stored in the currently selected Snippetgroup, and can then later on be moved to any other group.
By clicking on the “Z,” the Znippetizer-X windows zooms and you get access to the groups and lists of items. You can drag any item from the list to any other application that can receive a text drag. You can zoom any snippet, select parts from it, and copy from it. You can drag text files to the Znippetizer-X window and also paste new snippets into it. You can also edit a snippet in the close up window. For ordering info surf on over to the

Intelli Innovations, developers of business and Internet tools for the Mac, has introduced the final version of ProSQL 1.0, its local and remote database management software for Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X.
ProSQL offers users the ability to directly access the tables and data in their database, display and search that information, and generate reports without requiring any knowledge of SQL query syntax or database engines, according to Paul Scandariato, chief technology officer at Intelli Innovations. Advanced users can utilize standard SQL syntax to perform queries from within the “SQL Console” or automate their database using “SQL Script Builder,” ProSQL’s integrated scriptwriter and debugger. What’s more, data can also be stored and retrieved locally using ProSQL’s integrated single-user database engine.
ProSQL 1.0 is available immediately for US $189.95. Designed for users of free database systems, ProSQL Personal Edition, available for $89.95, supports mySQL, PostgreSQL, ProSQL, and REAL databases only, along with limited reporting and administration capabilities.
