Thanks for the URL, Spencer.

Just loaded it on my MacBook Pro 13 and will also load on iMac.  Would load 
on iPhone 4, but no HD.  Yet.

I like it that you can opt for an email alert (test email worked great) and 
the little HD icon on the tool bar now sports a comforting Green for OK 

So now I can get email alert on iPhone 4 that one or both Macs are in 
trouble before I get home.

Way cool.
