Firstly the sorrys... I'm so, so, so sorry for not checking back before!!!! I had a bookmark set in plain sight, but I dunno what happened to it, perhaps a Firefox crash or something. So I only just remembered when I saw Mouser mention Donation Coder. Sorry also for my appalling writing, I don't know how your decrypted my request. I must have been half asleep and drunk when writing that. But I wasn't which is even more sad. embarassed

Now for the important stuff....

You finished that 4 hours after I posted the request????!!!!! That is friggin' amazing!!!
Secondly it's perfect and does absolutely everything that I wanted. You even covered everything that wasn't essential.
Third adding additional features, such as multiple alarms in one app instance, Enable/Disable all alarms, automated alert additions (I would have been happy editing the ini file), alarms stored in an ini file, a message for each alert, a new and better name. Not to mention that it's open source!

ohmy HOLY CRAP!!!! ohmy PixelNotifier is incredible. Amazing work!! Five gold stars.... actually, I don't know if this breaks any of the laws of physics, but I'm changing that to 6 gold stars.

Thank you so much, I will use this often!

PS. Yeah Shellcity is a great place.
PPS. You have inspired me to check out AutoHotKey.
2 Software / Finished Programs / DONE: Universal Notifier (UN) on: September 15, 2005, 01:26:34 AM

I have wanted this for years. It's a program that will notify a user who is not currently sitting at the screen, of certain event occurring. It would do this by monitoring a certain, user specified, pixel on the screen for either a change to a certain colour and then alerting the user of this change.

This would be useful as it allows the user to select what they want to be alerted to and doesn't require them to hope the author has added that functionality for alerting of the completion of the particular even that they wish to be notified of... which is very unlikely that the author would have done so.

Because this user isn't currently at the screen (perhaps watching TV in the next room) the program would notify the user of this change via a user specified sound. Or it could change the entire screen to a user selected colour, for users that don't have speakers (if my whole screen is red then the room that it's in turns red from the light so this would also alert me to a change).

If this program was aloud to run in multiple instances, the user could even set up multiple types of alerts, with a different sound for each.

So this basically has two elements, monitoring a pixel and alerting of a change. Everything else that I mentioned is of secondary importance and would only need adding if the programmer had time and it wasn't too complicated.

I hope you like my idea. smiley
