Lingon

Lingon I have heard your pleas, dear TUAWers, and  I present unto you a graphical interface for interacting with launchd in Tiger. If you'll recall launchd is a small process that runs in the background on OS X and watches the system. When certain criteria are met, like a file is modified, it triggers an event (like the running of a script). This can be very useful for a variety of things, but it required launching the Terminal, something not all Mac users are comfortable doing.

Enter Lingon, it provides a clean UI for creating config files for launchd and controlling them. If you don't believe me check out Systems Boys' overview on the subject.
