    Console puts out this log every time I open Safari:

    2006-03-09 12:13:51.881 Safari[4969] The plugin /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/fiwt.bundle (net.nondeterministic.hack.fiwt) is using a deprecated interface to SIMBL. Please contact the appropriate developer (not the SIMBL author) and refer them to http://culater.net/wiki/moin.cgi/CocoaReverseEngineering

    Do I need to delete the plugin? I really have no idea what this means, I just thought I'd try and find out.

    It only means that fiwt is using an old-fashioned interface and may stop working in the future. The note is really there for the developer; keep up with new versions, and don't worry about it unless the plugin breaks some day.

    Thanks for the info.

    Would anyone happen to know what that plug in does?

    find while typing.

    I'm guessing that you picked up this system second hand, if you didn't install that? fiwt details here.

    I assume that I installed it a long time ago and forgot about it
