I finished my Leopard installation and started installing Little Snitch 1.2.4. The first dialog from Little Snitch was "kernel_task callback function... 18.104.22.168....". ummm.... 22.214.171.124, I never saw it under Tiger. So I tried 'whois 126.96.36.199' and then got the answer: OrgName: Apple Computer, Inc.
