Aidan,

I prefer the network (on-line) games so if no one is on-line when I check the status board I, more often than not, log off and do some other computer work or play. Because my favourite game is (network) GG Cribbage, I would like to be notified when someone comes on-line when I am working in another program. (I would drop what I was doing just as I would drop any cribbage game versus the AI.) As it is, connecting for a network game requires two people (of only 200 or so) to have the same idea at the same time. Is there any way you can add this option in a future version? (Note that it would have to be optional.) I do know it may not be possible to override other running programs, even in a good cause.

Brian

I'd need to write a menu-bar (mac) / taskbar (windows) program that periodically checks for online users and notifies you when someone comes online. It can be done, and I'll write it down in the list, but there's just too much other stuff to do first alas.
