I'd like you to create an OSX application which runs in the background and switches the desktop wallpaper 1x/day.  The source for the wallpaper image will be a remote server, so network access will be required in this application (limited fetching -- 1 image per day, plus a small amount of text).  I will create the server side, and the protocol/transfer method is flexible based on what you feel is easiest for you on the OSX side.

The application should start automatically when the machine restarts.  User preferences are not needed, at least in this revision.  There should be a top-menu-bar icon when the application is running, and it should provide: 1) a simple "about this app" menu item, and 2) an "about this image" menu item

This is a very similar application to what I want:  http://www.kuvva.com/mac  

Our application will have different images, but will function in more or less the same way.  

If you need additional information in order to provide an estimate, let me know.
