I get tired of endless popup notifications from the various denizens of the system tray telling me well-meaning but generally useless bits of information. One aspect of the Mac OS X interface that I truly like is that you are only notified when there is some action you need to take, not for every minor change in your operating system's landscape.
The Wireless connectivity icon, and the Ethernet connectivity icon are the worst offenders in my book. I use a wireless broadband card to connect while I am at work, so both of these system tray features are constantly telling me that there is no connection. First the wireless connectivity monitor spouts off, and then the Ethernet one. It's annoying to me.
Thanks to Google, and this page, I give you these steps, recorded here so I don't have to find them again.
Enjoy your notification free world.
