I was so glad to find this! Thanks! It's nice because,
in OSX, you can leave apps running in the background, and so little tools that
solve just one job become more feasible. I have already used it to help with
measurements while finishing a web page design.

"Note: Free Ruler is only available for Mac OS X. It may work on Mac OS 9, but this has not been tested. It most definitely will not work on your stupid Windows PC."

things like this are why I love OS X.
