The Feedster Notifier

Ok, tonight I created the feedster notifier. Actually, I wrote it last night and the installer tonight. It's another task tray icon. If you open it, then you get a form where you can add Feedster keywords or search phrases that you wish to be notified on. If it finds new matches, it'll display a popup message. You get one minute to click on the popup and visit the blog entry or it disappears forever. That's it! I thought about persisting the search results for later access, but then I thought "that's what an aggregator like Sharpreader is for." Anyhow, have fun.

Pre-requisites: .NET 1.1 run-time.

Notes on the installer and startup: It does not kick-start the Feedster Notifier. You have to start it thru the Programs Start menu or it'll start on its own the next time you restart your computer. Once it's started, you can double-click the tray icon or use the context menu from the tray icon. Again, I hope you enjoy it!

Update: Weird. Using the Feedster Notifier today leaves me kinda wanting something more. Can you say V2?
