    This is useful.

    I saw how to do this in David's Pogue's missing manual for leopard. It was actually a good how to tech book compared to others. O'Reilly's also makes some fantastic books on mac os x too. :)

    You can also rearrange your menu bar by holding the Apple Button and dragging it the way you like, FYI

    Very timely tip, given the thread on here from a couple of days ago about how Macs are "poorly designed" because three seasoned "IT pros" couldn't figure out how to open the optical drive on a Mac Pro. :D

    lets keep this ball rolling. are there any other buttons you can add to the menu bar that most people don't know about?

    this only applies to the ones by apple/os x, and not 3rd party menubar icons

    command + click the icon and drag it off. this works for all the apple ones as well.

    hmmm well my Last.fm, adium, quicksilver and just about all others i've put up there do not move, so maybe iStat is the exception to the rule?

    Probably :p Sorry, I wasn't trying to say anything, just pointing out that iStat does indeed work.
