Re: Audio bug?

Are you sure this doesn't happen with items that come in while the ap is open? I was noticing the same thing, but it seemed to me that problem was that Prowl's notification sound "took over" the audio of the iPod, pausing whatever was playing so that Prowl could play its own alert file. I ...

Re: Using Applescript to change Growl Display Settings

So I'm still confused, but it sounds like any method we've discussed -- growlctl, quit GrowlHelperApp and restart after changing preferences, or restarting GrowlHelperApp after having changed the settings -- have very little likelyhood of causing problems because of the small amount of time involved...

Re: Using Applescript to change Growl Display Settings

Cool, thanks for explaining. So killing GrowlHelperApp without using growlctl means no data loss, which is good, but it also means, if I'm understanding properly, that a notification sent to Growl while the preference rewriting script is running could cause GrowlHelperApp to start back up and reread...

Re: Using Applescript to change Growl Display Settings

I don't really know what happens behind the scenes. I thought that stopping Growl was the desired result. We want Growl to completely restart so that it rereads the preferences file. Is that not the case? Or is GrowlHelperApp the program that actually reads the preference file? And is there a reason...

Re: Using Applescript to change Growl Display Settings

So, I didn't do any test to determine whether stopping and starting Growl was necessary. I just figured that it couldn't hurt, and I found that there's a command line tool that does just that: growlctl. It is not packaged with the latest Growl installation, but it can be found in the "Extras&qu...

[Feature Request] Mass clearing of notifications

Sometimes it's easier just to read through your notifications in one step, and then delete them all in the next step, except that it's really not because you still have to delete your notifications one at a time. This seems extra unnecessary when I've had my iPod on and have actually watched the not...

Re: [feature request] Prowl list on iphone available offline?

I was just looking to see if anyone had requested that as well. I love the idea. Sometimes I wander into a hot-spot, the my iPod gather up my e-mail, then read it at my leisure later. I would love to do the same thing with my Prowl notifications. Especially because my Twitter ap and Facebook ap curr...

Re: Using Applescript to change Growl Display Settings

I was wondering the same thing. It seems like zac's idea has potential, although, for my purposes, I want to go a slightly different way. I don't care if my computer is idle or not. Sometimes it does its own thing when when I'm not around. Sometimes dogs bump the desk that wiggles the mouse that wak...
