you'll definately want this compared to other solutions doing similar tasks. the menu items are highly configurable, movable and you are free to choose which icon sits where (thats not the case with all menu items out there!)

one thing worth the mention is, that some of the items have access to system items like the activity monitor or the network preferences... each attached to the connected item, like lets say you may launch the activity monitor from the cpu meter menu and the network preferences from the network one. not a biggy, but it'll save you space in your dock, if you have the activity monitor in there.

make sure to check out the other software by islayer. they're all slick to look at and very speedy to use. no memory hogs or alikes.

absolutely liquid piece of software worth each minute of its use! donation is awesome as well!

Something is up with this program. It's absolutely beautiful and fun and comprehensive, but it caused my system to get really sluggish - expose, spotlight, dock, all animations were jerky. Maybe it's related to the sketchy MenuCracker hack that it secretly installs.

This works on 10.5 with a few small cosmetic display issues in open menus.

Just moved to this from MenuMeters, I like this a bit better but there's not much in it. The fact this is being actively developed swung it for me.

let's me know when syslogd goes crazy :D

I love this program. The best feature is how I am able to perfectly customise the appearance of the time and date, along with the drop down calendar and time zones from the menu bar.

All the other features are just icing on the cake for me.

I used this for 5 months, then removed it. Takes quite a bit of resources for what it does. I have a similar program on my PC (everest) where it makes much more sense since my box is watercooled, etc. Knowing the CPU temp on my macbook on the other hand presents much less interest. To be fair it does what it says on the tin.

@me: to workaround this problem, I'm now using spacecontrol that updates faster, and also has an adjustable alarm for low free space.

The free space figure of the "drives" menu item takes more than 1 minute to update, even though it's set to update every 1.3 second... :(

bradbeattie,
The install will work without an administrator pass(even though it will say its failed) but the new process monitoring feature wont work properly. The process server needs administrator permissions otherwise it can't get some of the information.
