    "i love it, but it keeps disappearing"

    October 17, 2010  |   By plaintiger


    shows me the status of my 'net connection at a glance, and more at a click.


    has been disappearing from my menu bar lately - it might be closing/sleeping my MacBook Pro that makes it go away...but i'm not sure. i've just often looked for it and found it AWOL lately (i'm running 10.6.4)


    i've been using BwanaDik steadily on all my machines for about two years now, i think...i love its functionality; it's one of the first things i install after getting a new machine or wiping or creating a new user on an old one. and i don't even use all its functionality - namely, i don't have it display any alerts. i just love its combining the IP-address-in-menu-bar function with the little customizable status light that tells me how my connection's doing at a glance. my only complaint is that version 3.3 doesn't seem to be completely comfortable with 10.6.4; i keep looking for BwanaDik in my menu bar and finding it's quit somewhere along the line...and i've never seen a crash report or alert about it on my screen, so it must be crashing very surreptitiously, below the OS's radar or something. it's disconcerting...such that i think i might look around and see if there's another app that provides quite the same functionality.
