Wouldn't it just be easier to get events from Growl?

Excellent concept, this is what I've been waiting for! But!... at this point, it still needs a bit of work; my favorite screensavers seem to be destroyed by this right now (Flury, MatrixGL). I'll be awaiting an update!

It would be nice to have more control over the screen placement of the information widgets, and also perhaps to remove the black band from behind them?

I like the idea of this, but unfortunately it mutilates the Flurry screensaver on my system. It's all blocky and pixellated, and Flurry is my favorite :( The other savers I've tried seem to be OK, it's just Flurry that looks crummy.

I like the idea, any chance of a module for entourage 2008?

secondly would it be possible to have the apps icon only appear when theres something to report. ie only have the NNW icon appear when there are new feeds?
