Hey, everybody!
As I already said, I've been working on a PC version of a CodeWalrus Post Notifier.
The notifier will run on Windows, Linux and Mac.
It's written in C#, without WinForms but with GTK and is 100% Mono compatible. Target framework is .NET 4.0 but could be even lower.

The source code is (yeah, this time I'm publishing source!) available under the MIT Licence at GitHub:
http://github.com/muessigb/CodeWalrii-Notifier/
Additional helping hands are as always welcome!
The only requirements is Xamarin Studio or the OSS alternative to it.

Cool! How does it notify you of a posts?

It'll set your PC on fire and that will trigger the fire alert :P

No I guess there will be an optional sound and the message will pop up on the lower right corner of the screen.
There will also be a main UI which shows the latest 10 posts (or more) and allows to configure the application.

I'm working on the design of the main window right now.
I don't think anybody has ever seen this design before :P
Here's a screenshot:

Looks good will it startup automatically or will you have to launch it? I would like to chose... I guess you could drop it in the start up folder for windows

Autostart isn't too hard. I will implement it :)

Could there be a choice because I was talking about it for other people because I wouldn't want it since my dad could boot up my computer and see... that would be bad O.O

See all the pr0n :P
No, of course will it be optional.

Hey look it's my post :P! Looks awesome can't wait to try it :).

I like the result so far. :D Alerts and optional sound are definitively a must, as long as they don't steal window focus (I hate when TI-Nspire Student software does that. The worst part is that it does it three times when the software loads, so you have to sit there waiting 1 minute for it to load, doing nothing.

Looks awesome! I can't wait to get this thing on my computer!

I'll try to finish most of the remaining work today, so that it's ready for release :)

Cool to hear. I'm gonna give it a try when I have a chance after it came out :) Is it Windows 7 compatible? (I see the theme but I don't remember if Windows 8 allowed you to use Windows 98/XP/7 themes)
