iTerrorAlert is a small program that displays the threat level determinted by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on your desktop. Therefor it queries www.dhs.gov every 30 minutes.
iTerrorAlert is published under GNU Public License and can be distributed freely.
This program is meant to be a desktop toy, it is for people who bought that 30-inch Apple Display and have to much space on their desktops. It is not a serious application and you might die in an terrorist attack even when the displayed level is green.
Until now it is not proven that iTerrorAlert can display any other level than "Elevated" because the level did never change since the development of iTerrorAlert has started. :)
iTerrorAlert runs on Mac OS 10.3.x (and probably also on 10.2.8).
