This is what I was looking for! I have speakers in my bedroom connected to an Airport Express, which I use to to go to sleep. I was looking for a timer app where I could control iTunes to play for my specified sleep time, then stop iTunes. This app did it the way i wanted it in the easiest manner.

I acquired Virus Barrier as part of one of the MacUpdate bundles, and I've had problems with the real-time scanner, where occasionally, the virusbarriers start hogging the CPU to the extent that my Powerbook G4 was almost unusable. I've disabled real-time scanning, and let it run scheduled scans instead (it's never found a virus so far, which doesn't surprise me).

But I must say that NetUpdate is truly an annoying application. It must have been written by a Windows programmer, because instead of bouncing an icon on the dock when it opens like all well-behaved Mac apps do, it barges to the foreground to announce that updates are available. I click the OK button, click the Update button (why not make Update an option of the announcement screen?), enter my login password at the prompt, and it starts updating. I resume whatever I was doing (such as web surfing), and when the update is complete, NetUpdate bulls it's way to the foreground again to let me know that it's finished. I click OK to acknowledge that it's done, and it checks for updates again. On the occasions that it finds another update, I have to go through the entire process again, including entering my password, cursing it as it interrupts whatever I was doing. Surely this intrusive, cumbersome process could be streamlined.

Very responsive connecting to a 400 MHz Linux box on a local network. It's a very simple app, and as far as features go, there's not much to it, but it serves my purposes completely. I had tried Chicken of the VNC, which was unusably slow (5+ second lag!), and hogged > 90% of my 1.67 GHz PPC Powerbook. I was going to give up on using VNC at all. I gave VNCDimensions a shot, and it's almost instantly responsive, and only uses 40-50% of the CPU. It hasn't crashed yet. I'm very pleased.
