    I was just wondering if SitePoint could have some sort of an active desktop thing. It would be really nice to have Forum notifications, SitePoint news, etc on my desktop.

    It would surely bring more of my posts (and others too) to SitePoint.

    This may be far-fetched but I'm making a notification system for my new site. It'll be written in Visual Basic or C++ if I ever get the time. Here's a mockup of it made in Photoshop: www.fourthdev.com/apc/tracker.gif . Something similar would be great especially if you could integrate forum posts AND new articles.

    That would be really amazing.

    Just think: a tiny windows app that lets me know when new posts are made.

    FYI Quinn: Voodoo prefers to be named without a capital D (as many people, including yourself, have VooDoo)

    Hi,

    I suggested this before when the tip feed first started but you could have an active desktop with the tip feed on it. But for myslef I would really find the new post in this forum usefull.
