    Hey,

    As I live in Brussels we have many spots here with free wireless, but also with spots where you have multiple options to choose from. Now, with my XP laptop I have this neat 'scan' tool that comes straight of the series '24', I can't find to find anything like that on Leopard here. Is it not built in, should I dl some type of 3rd party app? I have a SR Macbook.

    Thanks!

    Ps: Is there ANY way to 'maximize' all the apps that have a little blue ball under them in the taskbar? Expose doesn't seem to do that (it only opens those you didn't kinda close with the red X at the top left of the window). The dock is confusing at the moment :-s If the blue ball is still there, this means you didn't quit the app, but it doesn't necessarily mean you have a window of it open either? How the heck?

    Click on the Airport icon to see all available networks (in the menubar), KisMac goes even further

    If you close the last window, but not the entire app, it means the app takes up very little resources, but is quick to start next time you want it...

    Ah thank you very very much for that :)

    Kis seems very nice indeed, but it says it doesn't work with Airport ? What am I doing wrong?
