since ppc apps slow an intel machine, it would be nice to have a growl sticky to alert me when one is launched. every once in awhile i'll notice in activity monitor that a ppc app is active -- usually just translate ppc -- but that's only when i remember to check activity monitor, and i can never remember which app invoked it. i quit process on translate and not notice any harm done or other apps crach or anything, and it stays gone for a good while. then it appears again. i want to know what made it come back and when. a growl sticky would help with the when. and "no" i don't know anything about writing little thingies like that. the days of having to know all the intricacies of how a computer works have been over for years since i got a mac -- i can just do what i want to do and not worry about things (i don't need to know how a refrigerator works in order to get my beer cold). a pc owner could not imagine not having to know how his computer works, because if he doesn't know enough, his pc won't work. an apple works flawlessly -- even for dummies like me.
