Fax Find

Fax Find is Open Source fax searching utility for FAXstf X Pro faxes that I wrote for my dad. I don't use FAXstf X Pro myself but if I needed a fax solution on the mac this would be the one I would buy. Fax Find is written in Java-Cocoa initially using eclipse then in Apples Xcode. This application is released under the GPL and in the unlikely event this application causes damage to your computer, files, kills your dog etc. please remember this is alpha software.
