I'm a sucker for neat little menubar programs. Programs that settles in our menubar like:

* Weatherpop
* Netmonitor

What are other neat little menubar programs?
Also show us a snapshot of your menubar!
Take care!

What is the lock seen in Malvolios menu? I remember seeing it before, and thinking "I should get that", but now can't remember...

Youpikey- a great macro utility. Get back the function keys launch apps, scripts and documents that Apple omitted from OS X, and a WHOLE lot more.

CeePeeYou- CPU use status in your menubar.

Youpikey is on versiontracker, CeePeeYou is from Unsanity.

I assume that's the Key Chain access menu item.

Youpi Key is great - it allows System Prefs and hierarchical directory submenus to be in its menu, so it can really take the place of many of these other utilities like Menuprefs. Unfortunately, the menu can be pretty slow to pull down if you make it too elaborate.

I have heard good things about UptimeInMenubar.

Menuversum was a great way to create custom menus under 10.1, but I don't know if a 10.2 version will be made.

I love Massinova, but on occasion it will lock up the menu bar area while it's trying to refresh itself.
