Really useful OSX app for finding system problems

I've found my mac doing all kinds of things using this. It shows you what your computer is doing as a desktop window. I've just discovered it doing all kinds of things I'm not happy about ie Entourage polling iCal in the background and other nonsense which I have tracked down and KILLED.

You'll like it. I now have ot open all the time, and as soon as something wierd goes on you can immediately see what it was.

Nice utility, Bev!

BTW, what shell commands do you have it set to check?

Cheers!

To be honest, I was never that thriled about the inibility to track down stuff in OS9.

All this new stuff is a heck of a lot better than moving extensions in and out of folders the whole time.

And even though I have been giving OSX a slagging, the only thing that has EVER given me trouble is the audio drivers, which are gradually being ironed out.

It will never feel like windows. Good.
