I installed monitoring software with different colored status dots,

pleasant hour's tweaking I ended up with green diamonds, red X's,
purple squares, and yellow exclamation points (and on this particular
application a mouse-over would also tell you the name of the color
gif) Looked better for *everyone*.

This sounds vaguely like a cereal commercial from when I was a kid.

Was the application "magically delicious" ?
