Mac follow-up

First, if you have a fuzzy screen, I could suggest a DVI Cable, e.g.:

And two menu-bar utilities really help monitor my Mac’s performance:

I try to keep things as minimal as possible, but I like to replace Apple’s battery monitor with the above “Slim Battery Monitor”, and at the very least I keep an eye on memory usage and network throughput with MenuMeters.
