Title
OSX GUI based checksum tool

Detailed description

why?

For most people the available tools are not nice.

Doing checksums  is a big win.

checksum gui front end
app to take a chosen folder and generate a checksum manifest

app
1. CHOOSE FOLDER allows user to browse & choose folder
2. RUNNING CHECKSUM gives feedback on activity ideally with some idea of time remaining
3. CHECKSUM COMPLETE feedback when operation complete
4. TIME TO COMPLETE back on time taken
5. SHOW MANIFEST possibly open folder window to show checksum file

key features

lots of feedback

no end user configuration required

issues

proposed development route is just a proof of concept

a more robust app is a bigger task
