Menubar icons
Authored by: tcsdoc on May 12, '08 08:08:20AM

I have Evernote, Typinator, Quicksilver,YouControl Tunes, Hazel, MagicMenu (Stuffit), ProShutdown, Little Snitch, MenuCalendarClock, iChat, MenuMeter Network Activity, MenuMeter Disk Activity, Spaces, Apple Remote Desktop, Time Macine, Volume Control, and Spotlight. I turned off Pathfinder and Applescript. I really don't need the Volume Control since I use the keyboard (thanks Quicksilver!).

You probably also don't need the iTunes control since QuickSilver will do that as well!

unfortunate clutter
Authored by: deef on May 12, '08 09:16:58AM

If it were up to me, it would be 0....unfortunately some features and apps (scripts menu, jumpcut, cover sutra, shimo among others) require it. I resisted this clutter for several years after switching to a mac but have finally succumbed.

how to manage
Authored by: tmoswift on May 12, '08 09:28:45AM

I would be interested to know how folks with lots of menu bar icons manage them. Two problems I find:
1) Left menu takes over right menu hiding left most menu bar icons (especially on a small MacBook screen with a big menu like FireFox)
2) Some apps insist on putting functionality only in menu bar icons. App developers: thank you for making menu bar shortcuts, but please give users other ways to access your application if we don't feel we need ready access it to it all the time.

I would love to see the control strip come back to life. Some menu bar items are great enough to always live in the menu. Others, I'd love to have around... but just don't have the space.

How hard a project do you think it would be to make a collapsable customizable menu the plays well with the current menu bar item plugins?

how to manage
Authored by: rampancy on May 12, '08 09:42:19AM

Actually, there is a collapsible menubar add-on which I use: Butler - a lot of secondary functionality that would otherwise take up even more menu bar space have icons that I've instead replaced with icons and functions from within Butler that I've put in Butler's docklet (i.e. the Fast User Switching menu). I have it anchored to the upper right of my screen and I have Accordion Mode enabled, so it quietly stays out of my way until I mouse over it.

Lost Spotlight and can't get it back...
Authored by: the_webmaestro on May 12, '08 09:44:59AM
I lost my Spotlight menu and can't get it back...

I don't know how I removed it... I probably [Cmd-Dragged] it off the bar accidentally...

Any idea how I can fix it?

BTW, I've got [sheepishly]23[/sheepishly], but most of those are from iStat Menus.

Only 9 on Mac Pro (more on PowerBook)
Authored by: CarlRJ on May 12, '08 01:19:14PM

For me it's: Psi, Skitch, Google Notifier, SMARTReporter, Sophos, Keychain Access, Bluetooth, Date/Time, Spotlight

(Psi is a Jabber client, Sophos is an AntiVirus app; mandated at office)

If anyone else is interested in what comes up most often, here's a scorecard for things getting two or more mentions (so far):

13 : Spotlight
11 : AirPort
10 : Date/Time
9 : Displays, Fast User Switching, Time Machine, Volume
8 : MenuMeters
7 : Bluetooth
6 : iSync
5 : Battery, Keychain Access, Script Menu
4 : Input Menu, MenuCalendarClock, QuickSilver
3 : Adium, AppleScript, CoverSutra, Growl, iChat, SMCFanControl, Spaces
2 : Google Notifier, International, iScrobbler, JumpCut, Keyboard, Little Snitch, MarcoPolo, Plaxo Sync, Shimo, Skitch, TelePort, Typinator, WeatherDock

Looks like MenuMeters is the most commonly used non-Apple Menu Item, followed (a ways down) by MenuCalendarClock and QuickSilver (I use QuickSilver, but don't see the point of putting a tool for avoiding mouse use... in the menubar).

MenuMeters vs. iStatMenus

MenuMeters vs. iStatMenus
Authored by: CarlRJ on May 13, '08 11:03:41AM
I've used MenuMeters on occasion, but never heard of iStat Menus -- I initially thought everyone meant "plain" iStat, which is uninteresting (to me) because I never have that much unused screen space, but iStat Menus looks kinda cool, and is here: iStat Menus.

MenuMeters renders details better, shows disk activity
Authored by: kkL on May 23, '08 03:41:31PM

iStat can't show disk activity in menu icon, you have to click it to get graph. MenuMeters' aqua diodes are very nice and as good as floppy diodes on Amiga :)

iStat's CPU graph is wrapped in a border and has 2-pixel padding on top and bottom. That's pretty wasteful for such tiny graph. MenuMeters uses entire available space.

Memory Pie Chart has rendering glitch – a bit on the left is cropped (my OCD can't stand this)

iStat beats MenuMeters in quality of dropdowns and has temperature and RPM meters, but for me these aren't more important than disk activity and icon rendering.

I stopped showing mounted volumes on the desktop, and instead show them in the menubar using Butler, so the number can change a bit.

I probably only need half of those.

Well, it seems pretty self-explanatory to me that an "or more" option wouldn't fit the bellcurve pattern, since it essentially encompasses a whole host of options above and beyond those explicitly represented...

At any rate, I did have exactly nineteen, but I've just cleared out a few, so I now have sixteen. From right-to-left:

Spotlight
Hotspot Shield (for when I simply must convince a website I'm in the US ~_~)
User Switching
Date/Time
Keyboard Layout (in addition to my usual British layout, I often have to type in Japanese, and the symbols in US Extended come in useful from time to time)
AirPort
Battery
Displays
Volume
iChat
Scripts
Quicksilver
TextExpander
Jumpcut
Gmail (email only, calendar disabled)

I guess I am an oddball here, but I only have Volume, the Clock and Spotlight. I dont think I ever use Spotlight, and volume only rarely. The crazy thing is I have another clock on my desk anyway, so given how much I use the other two I could have 0, and that would be beauty indeed to me.

Aside from the usuals, I have Menu Calendar Clock, four from Menu Meters (cpu, memory, disk activity and network activity), Uptime in Menu Bar (uptime and load averages), Mac Fusion (for fuse-sshfs), and Aion (family timezone info).

Where relevant, I've customized the font to use American Typewriter 13 pt: a highly readable condensed font; because I have a PB G4 with a 1280x960 screen. If I could only change the menu font and the Apple suppled menu extras, I'd have many more menu extras up there!
