Re: Prowl feature requests

I'm always turning on Do Not Disturb and then forgetting to turn it off. I really need an option to automatically turn it off at a certain time every day! (Quiet Hours doesn't do it because sometimes I need to turn on DND in the middle of the day.) If I can't get that, I'd take an API call to change...

Re: Prowl feature requests

Would love a way to "snooze" Prowl alerts in the iOS app. Similar to DND, but automatically re-enables alerts after a user-defined period of time.

Can't install

Following the installation instructions: In Growl's Preferences:Displays, there is no Default Style named Prowl (as shown in your guide). And if I click "Show Disabled", I'm advised "The following plugins have been disabled since they are not fully supported by Growl 2.0": /Users...

Re: Login message: "Growl was unable to bind the socket"

Sounds like you have multiple copies of Growl running in the background. Can you try restarting your Mac? It's also possible that GrowlHelperApp is running on both user accounts, and both are trying to "listen" for remote notifications. Check the 'network' tab of Growl. Thanks, I'll check...

Login message: "Growl was unable to bind the socket"

I don't know if this is a problem with Growl or with Prowl, but I now get this message when I log into one of the user accounts on my Mac (OS X 10.6.6): "Growl was unable to bind the socket for Network notifications. Check to make sure that there aren't any other applications already using the ...

To keep it out of the way and less susceptible to possible conflicts with other apps. It's been working great that way for a couple of years. I even contributed a piece about it for Gorden Meyer's recent book "Smart Home Hacks: tips & tools for automating your house" (O'Reilly, 2005). I'm pretty...

OK, I won't argue. But let me describe my need: my Home Automation system (based on the XTension software) runs in its own user account in the background. It would be very nice if my main user account, running in the foreground, could receive notifications of exception-type events (say, "Your barn i...

I was thinking it might possible, because I use an app called Clipboard Sharing that lets you send info from one user's clipboard to another's.

Notifications between logged-in users on one machine

Is there a way that an application running under one logged-in user's account can send a notification to a different logged-in user's account? This would be useful.
