This is a wonderful idea and an excellent alternative to Growl notifications.

That having been said however -

Upon launching the program, it tried to connect to about seven different sites. I am not certain what information it tried to upload or download. The documentation makes no mention whatsoever of any connection with any commercial company. Thankfully, Little Snitch prevented it from connecting without my approval.

That little stunt has earned this application a fast trip to the Trash.

This is a wonderful program idea. However, it did not find any bluetooth devices when run on my Mac Pro under OS X 10.4.9 even though both the Apple wireless Keyboard and Mighty Mouse are present as the default system devices. Battery levels for both devices are at five green bars out of five possible, in the System Preferences pane. I would like to encourage the developer to continue his work on the program.

When launching the application and when attempting to set it as a login item, I receive the following AppleScript Error: "System events got an error: Can't make name of every login item into type reference. (-1700).

Other than that, the application works flawlessly.

After updating to the latest program version, I found that my pets record was missing. I found that the program stores the pet records inside the application bundle. When I dragged the latest version of application bundle to my hard drive the records were overwriten with a blank record. I believe that this can be avoided by moving the records out of the bundle, like the snapshots folder is.

Even after downloading the latest version from the developer's website (vultures-2.0.0-eye_macosx-6.dmg) the application crashes so quickly that no crashreport is generated. The same behavior occurs with it's sister program Vulture's Claw. This is in OS X 10.4.6.
