    Info: This checks a text file on my server for new updates every 30 minutes. If I edit the file since the last time it checked it will alert you like the screen below.
    Screens:

    Download: PHP Easy Downloader Script II By Paul Alger
    Bugs: After a new update it will pop up every thirty minutes until you exit and restart the program.
    Might get fixed, depending if I feel its a good idea considering if the person isn't at the computer the first time it pops up they wouldn't necessarily know.

    Donations: 1/2 will go to my friend who coded it, 1/4 to pete, 1/4 to me.
    If you donate feel free to post your donation amount so I can prove money is going to Pete too.

    I don't run Bugless, but I gotta say that's a pretty cool idea.

    Well, as I am not on windows but I like the idea of a bugless notifier if I knew the URL and the string I could code the notifier as part of my conky setup in linux and set it as a display are ;)

    Still get notified just not having to worry about the windows part.. Sorry about the confusion about the application I made the guess as it stated it was looking at a file on your server that you might know what it was pulling for its information.
