I just installed and enabled the GNOME shell for ubuntu 11.10. its really nice except that i cannot pin the notifications i want to the top panel. instead theyre on the bottom panel, normally hidden unless i mouseover.

how can i pin these items to the top notification area?

and possibly remove the "ease of access" madness up there

This extension may help you. It moves the bottom panel icons to the top panel. enter image description here

PS: This other extension should remove the Accesibility icon.

WebUpd8 posted an article about moving the notifications to the top bar. And you can use the noa11y extension to hide the "ease of access" icon, if that's what you mean.
