"Back to 2.7"

While using 2.7, I checked for updates. 2.7 reported that there were no updates and 2.7 was the most recent version. Then I installed 3.0 and it never updated my IP, reported that I don't use OpenDNS. Also, I couldn't find Growl support in 3.0. Reverted to 2.7 from backup. 2.7 worked fine as used to be. I will not use 3.0.

"works, but several issues"

this tool takes much more memory than its tiny task should need; over 100MB of private memory after it ran for a few hours on my Intel/10.4.11 system; this might be a memory leak; for something that runs 24/7 this is way too much for me...

also, since it is a free app with no implicit contract, and since i'm giving it my OpenDNS password, i really think it should be open source so that i can be comfortable what it's doing with my info...

also some smaller problems:

  • Preferences window gets lost behind other windows -- once another window is in front of it, can't command-tab to it, can't resurface it by selected Preferences from the menu item, must hide everything or use Expose
  • About window sometimes displays behind current app, result is similar problem to Preferences window
  • after manually running Check for Updates, the menu item's menus are permanently greyed out
finally, a feature request: new IP notification through Growl
