Re: Status icon


Could you maybe do something in the tool bar?

I'm thinking the upper right has nothing in it, and that would be a good
place for something that was grey if not set up, red if setup but no
connection, yellow for "I'm trying to connect" and green for "connected"?
Mouse over would give a more complete status and maybe clicking on it would
bring up the configuration screen?
