Here's the Mac OS X Leopard version of the Airport menu shown in the previous post:
The lock icons are presumably quite useful for some people, although I only ever connect to either my home or office network so I never really even look at the menu.
I can see loads of WiFi routers from my house these days. A couple of years ago, mine was the only one.
Oh yes, this post is also a test of the new Skitch Beta.

My MacBook has been getting slower and slower lately, so today I
started to investigate what the cause might be. I'd noticed a while
ago that a message had started appearing in
update_prebinding: error: dependent dylib is not prebound update_prebinding: error 256 running update_prebinding_core
You can run
update_prebinding from the shell but you don't get
any extra insight into the problem because the error message is
exactly the same.
Photos of the Alcoa factory fire which I emailed to the Banbury Guardian have been published on their website, along with extracts from the email I sent them.
Higher resolution pictures than the ones they published are after the jump.
