Jeremy's CS Bundle is a collection of Control Strip modules. They are:

Clock CSM
Displays the current time. Via a popup menu, you can customize the appearance of the display.

Sound Volume CSM
A direct replacement for the Sound Volume module provided by Apple. The icon shows the current volume setting in both numeric and pictoral form, so you don't need to bring up the menu to determine the current volume.

Sleep CSM
A direct replacement for the Sleep Now module provided by Apple. Via the popup menu, you can select whether or not to bypass the dialog that appears when AppleTalk is active. Works with PowerBooks and PCI-based Power Macintoshes.

Battery Time CSM
This module displays Apple's estimate of remaining battery time (only available on new model PowerBooks with intelligent batteries), a historical estimate which "learns" your battery use, or the elapsed time spent on battery.

Designed for the PowerBook or the PCI-based Power Macintosh, this module displays the current CPU speed, or indicates with icons fast or reduced clock speed. With a properly equipped PowerBook, you can also change the CPU speed.

Battery CSM
This module displays current battery levels and charger status. It can also display the hard drive state, fast or reduced clock speed, modem status, and estimate of remaining time (with Apple Intelligent batteries only). All this in less space than Apple's battery monitor module!

Temperature CSM
This module displays the internal PowerBook temperature and the battery temperature, as returned by the Power Manager. (Only supported by Duos, PowerBook 190, 500, 1400, 2400, 3400/G3, and 5300 series). See other user's temperature readings!

AppleTalk CSM
This module replaces Apple's AppleTalk Switch module. It performs the same function - letting you turn on or off AppleTalk - but without all the annoying dialog boxes that Apple's module displays.

Application CSM
This module displays the number of applications and desk accessories currently running. The popup menu shows the current foreground application, and lets you switch applications.

EnergyStrip CSM
This module replaces the Energy Saver or PowerBook control panel, and lets you adjust the energy saving features from the Control Strip. You can set screen dimming, hard drive spindown, automatic sleep and processor cycling times. On PowerBooks, you can have different settings under AC or battery power.

Power Countdown CSM
This module shows a countdown for various power conservation features, such as screen dimming, disk spindown and system sleep.

Caps Lock CSM
This module shows the state of the Caps Lock key and the other modifier keys. You can also select a sound to be played upon key depression and release.

Sound Volume Pro CSM
This CSM not only lets you adjust the sound volume with finer adjustments, you can also adjust the left and right speaker balance if you have stereo speakers.

Drive Space CSM
This CSM shows you the amount of free space on any mounted hard drive.

G3 & G4 Temperature CSM
This CSM shows you the core processor temperature on late-model Power Macintoshes. Note: Motorola documents the relative accuracy of the temperature measurements to be ±12°C.

Server Mode CSM
This CSM lets you set the server mode automatic power-on feature on late-model Power Macintoshes.

Jeremy's CS Modules requires OS 9 and Apple's Control Strip software to run (the modules are also compatible with the shareware equivalents Desktop Strip or Extensions Strip). Some modules are PowerBook-specific.  The modules do not work under OS X.

NOTE: One user reported that use of the EnergyStrip CSM switched his internal modem settings from "Internal" to "Compatible". Since I don't have one of these older PowerBooks, I have been unable to isolate or determine the cause of the problem.

NOTE: The Temperature CSM does not work on the "new" (Wall Street/"Bronze") PowerBook G3's. I'm investigating this issue.

Note: Motorola's MPC7450CE/D Rev 5 errata indicates "The thermal assist unit (TAU) is no longer supported on the MPC7450, MPC7451, or MPC7441.". Because of this, you will not be able to measure the junction temperature on any system with these processors. At current, this includes the "Gigabit" PowerBook G4 and the "2001 Quicksilver" G4's.

NOTE: Motorola documents the relative accuracy of the temperature measurements from the processor to be ±12°C (21.6°F). Your measurements may vary.
