    hi, please check out the screenshot of my activity monitor
    being highlighted in that screenshot, i have no idea what it is
    its running under rosetta.
    i already restart the mac and look on login items on my account, nothing suspicious, ex: growl, quicksilver

    so what to do?
    thank you.

    if it's a PowerPC process, it seems like you've got a non-UB application installed somewhere. I have a few PPC processes running to support my printer.

    I wouldn't worry about it, unless you suspect it's causing system issues.

    wow thx
    as mentioned on the cocoaforge forum url above, adium is the culprit
    just before i ran adium, there is no translate
    after i ran it, translate started.
    after i quit adium, translate still there.
