A simple way to show Capacity?

Is there a simple way to show capacity without launching the dashboard? Something in the menubar? percentages? gigs? anything? It just seems silly to me that I have to launch this big app just to tell me I have 80% left.

The blue dots are a plus but I keep my drobo in a server room and don’t see the front. Anyone?

Since you can use Thin Provisioning with Drobo, you wouldn’t be able to trust any info delivered by the OS.

It would be nice if Dashboard had some basic info when you clicked it in the bar, I agree.

…or even just moused over it.
