AD Password Expiration Countdown in Menu Bar

I've borrowed from Peter Bukowinski's script that will lookup when an AD user's password is due to expire, and expanded upon it to run as a task in the OS X menu bar. The applet includes preference settings for the following:

This applet is open source and hosted on Google Code: Password Monitor.
