... a little tool that when run will sit in the tray & provide realtime info on customisable info on your system which you can place where you want ... a few out there like samurize.
Let me know if this has been done/suggested before/a better one exists anyway.
it HAS been done amigo.
and you answered your own request already.
what's wrong with Samurize?
i find it to be extremely low on system resources.
and it DOES provide realtime stats.
i use Samurize with Desktop Coral by Mouser (the forum head admin)http://www.donationc...ktopcoral/index.html
I keep an eye on my RAM usage, as well as CPU activity. and when downloading/uploading, i also keep an eye on my bandwidth usage.
