great idea -- unfortunately doesn't work on either 10.3.9 or 10.4.2.

========================
I am looking for something like this for mac 10.4.x to just keep an eye on multiple websites. If not this, is there something else anyone knows of?

Also: desperately need a site hosting / dns /server/isp / domain name manager (database) or filemaker template or interface or something that i can enter all my domain names, hosts, servers, passwords, forwards, status, dns settings, registrar, domain expiration etc..... etc... even better would be something that could interface with the registrar control panels at different registrar sites so they could be done from within one app instead of going to all those diff registrars which each have diff control panels, diff features, etc. -- can't they at least agree to standardize their control panels?

Anyway, is there anything like that? I am not a programmer, is there something in the mac - user -friendly tradition somewhere???

hello hello hello -- a voice echoes in the vast canyons and darkness.....


thanks.

meanwhile, The Informant doesn't do anything. at all.

UPDATE: got it working -- sort of -- it hangs on a regular basis AND it adds multiple copies (like FIVE) of itself to the log-in / startup items in the accounts system preferences.

dangit -- what's up w/that? wish this were a better program -- like i said, good idea, but BUGGY
