Speaking of the gadget, here is an idea:
Could we get little taskbar pop ups? Like with M$ OutLook, when you get an e-mail the little bar pops up, or like with steam (that is what just gave me the idea). Perhaps a little pop up when someone replies to a thread we are subscribed to, or when we get a PM or chat message.....
Think about it. I would love it! I am never just sitting on my desktop, so that would really help me out.
