A straightforward and extremely powerful windows configuration tool.

A top-down shooter game which uses music to generate levels.

Absolutely fantastic! HOWEVER progress is not auto-saved! Who the fuck makes a game where you can abandon everything you've played just by pressing a button too many times?!

Combines multiple little conveniences and opens up basic functionality that would normally require multiple separate addons.

The author has an incredible philosophy of simplicity and strict programming. This addon is created in such a way that each of its features is only loaded up if you enable the feature, meaning that if Blizzard breaks anything, this addon doesn't implode.

Absolutely mandatory.
