NetLocation X's monitor intercepts network change notifications sent by the kernel and updates your system automatically.

Doesn't work with Snow Leopard. First time you run it wants to configure locations to manage, and the box is empty.

Just before this is asks whether you want to check for updates automatically, with Yes as default. If you do this and then relaunch the app, it says '0.5.0 is available (you have 0.5.1)' and it hangs, hard.

Had this app appeared 2 years earlier I would have been in heaven. It's still very useful though.

Just one question. Why kill the lookupd process when you could just issue: lookupd -flushcache ?

Sorry but I wrote this app just two months ago: utility you're talking about is Location X, but I hope you'll find it useful anyway :-))

Thanks for the hints: now lookupd is flushed instead of killed.
