This is a developer comment in reply to some of the other user feedback:
I just took a quick look at BwanaDik, looks good. Does very similar basic operation, but these are different applications. Also, the preferences have been moved into the app itself, rather than requiring a separate preference pane. This is something I will be incorporating into all my menu bar applications over time, in the near future.
IPSentinelStatus, although not free, is part of a bundle, my "Utilities Bundle." When you register any utility in the bundle, including IPSentinelStatus, you get all of them! I think that's quite an unusual deal and package of Mac Apps for such a low price, and upgrades to everything is always free. So give them a try! This is the home page for the Utility Bundle: http://www.limit-point.com/Utilities.html
Finally, if anyone finds missing features or problems, in any of my applications, that they would like incorporated or fixed, just let me know. I always try to accommodate your suggestions, in any product I write. This is how the a product evolves. I am very accessible via email. Check out the website at: http://www.limit-point.com/Contact.html. I check email much more frequently than the reviews because of time constraints. Please accept my apology for that, and I look forward to hearing from you in email!
