Build Notification, Visual Studio, & Snarl

I’m not talking about build notifications from a build server. Rather, I’m talking about times when you are building locally. It’s a big project and it takes 30 seconds. So… you flip over to a web browser while you wait. Then you forget about it and waste another minute or two until you remember: oh yeah, I was building.

Snarl!Ok, maybe I’m the only who does that.

Notifications

I recently (re)discovered Snarl. It’s a small app, inspired by Growl for OSX, and is a generic provider for system tray notifications.

I also found this plugin for Visual Studio that notifies you when a build is finished.

Funny enough, all the projects I am working on right now build quickly, so I don’t really need this. I just like it.

Quirk

On Vista, I would get duplicate notifications. No problems on Windows 7.
