My Menubar

My OS X menubar (right hand side)

Gummi started it, Sven piled on, and now I’ll play too:

Left to right:

  • iScrobbler, which keeps my AudioScrabbler profile up-to-date.
  • Meteorologist, a truly cool little tool that provides me with current weather conditions and forecasts for my own city and several others (friends and relatives).
  • Applescript Script Menu, being exactly what it sounds like
  • The stock OS X menubar volume control
  • iChat presence icon
  • Input menu (switch keyboard layouts, open input palettes, that sort of thing)
  • Clock
  • Fast User Switch Menu with Winswitch: very handy when one of us is already logged in and the other wants to quickly check email or look in his/her addressbook or iCal. The WinSwitch menu saves a lot of space over the standard one

The Magic Word:
Which planet is closest to the sun? (hint -- it's Mercury...)

The dirty work at political conventions is almost always done in the grim
hours between midnight and dawn. Hangmen and politicians work best when
the human spirit is at its lowest ebb.
