I hate the spinning beachball.

Is there freeware that allows me to change it to something else? Or better yet, something in Tiger's preferences, that I'm overlooking.

I'm going to get shot for this...

You could maybe turn it into an "hourglass"...

*dodges projectile tomatoes*

But seriously, I would like to know how to do this too whenever my mini gets here... anyone know?

Mighty Mouse might be worth a look.

I'd like to change it to something that suits my character. I'd rather watch a motorcycle pop a wheelie or something. I'm about 1000 miles from any real beach.

I'm sure I'll find some freeware. That Mighty Mouse thing wants $10. At least I know it can be done.
