Here it is NewsAlloy Notifier, the tool I talked about yesterday. It is a very simple tool. It checks NewsAlloy, my feed aggregator, and reports the number of unread items. The tools lives in the Notification Tray. Double clicking the icon opens NewsAlloy in the default browser.
You can download it here. To configure it right click on the icon in the Notification Tray. It also works behind a proxy server. It requires Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0. You can get it here. Let me know how it works.
