Unable to download or contact the developer's site. Hopefully MU can provide a local copy if they can find one.

Oh, I forgot to mention:

The fact that the app is named "Observation Post" but registers with Growl under the name "The Watcher" is a little annoying. Please choose one name and use it consistently.

This is shows a lot of promise, but it often crashes on waking from sleep. (Or maybe it crashes on sleep, I'm not sure how to tell.) Considering what it does, and that the system crash dialog gives me a button to restart it, the crashes aren't *too* debilitating for a beta...
