I finished my Leopard installation and started installing Little Snitch 1.2.4. The first dialog from Little Snitch was "kernel_task callback function... 184.108.40.206....". ummm.... 220.127.116.11, I never saw it under Tiger. So I tried 'whois 18.104.22.168' and then got the answer: OrgName: Apple Computer, Inc.
