Other than the well known cupcake style sweet pastry, a muffin is also a toasted breakfast food in Australia, Britain, etc, bearing little or no resemblence to the more common sweet variety. The most common variety is the English Muffin although a range of other ingredients are mixed into the dough mix to produce interesting variety. Manufacturers attempt to enhance the percieved value of their muffins by describing them as 'pre-split'.

Secondary meaning: Muffin is the best friend of the Sanrio character Purin.

A program supplied on the AppleDOS 3.3 System Master disk that allowed files to be copied from pre-3.3 13-sector disks the the new(er) 16-sector disks used by AppleDOS 3.3 and ProDOS.

The compliment to this program is, of course, De-Muffin, which facilitated copying of files from 16-sector disks to 13-sector disks.

1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups soy milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup unrefined sugar

A Java-based filtering proxy, known to work in both *NIX and Windows.

Muffin does everything Internet Junkbuster doesn't do, but it can also be made to block stuff more aggressively based on content, and modify content too (Junkbuster merely passes through what it is allowed to and puts in a dummy for something that was not not allowed). It is sort of like the equivalent of Proxomitron: It stops looping animations, removes Java applet code, blocks images with certain sizes, shoves background music where it came, and more, everything you need.

Like Proxomitron, it's very configurable and even has configuration GUI. (Though I have to admit I'm still looking for the actual configuration. =( )
