I wrote a PHP script that runs as Cronjob, which notifies me when one of my friends is playing Battlefield Bad Company 2 and sends me a link to his stats :D

I have set up a filter in GMail, that redirects certain imporant e-mails to my Prowl e-mail address.

I thought this was awesome, so I cleaned it up and made it easier to add/remove both zones of interest and users: http://kennethfinnegan.blogspot.com/201 ... prowl.html

My company is using Prowl to send additional information on 911 calls. I send 911 call information to first responders' iPhones and iPads, including a link to a google map of the address of the call, and a brief history of previous 911 calls at that address.

Cheers,
Dave

I get notified of TV Shows when they are dowloaded to my server, both premiere shows and favorites. (Flexget + Usenet)
I also scrape train station webpages and have prowl notify me when my train to/from work is likely to be late.

Using Growl for Windows and the Command Line Tool that came with it I set many of my BATCH files with some notifications to know when the process finish, as they keep running for 3 to 5 hours, and when finish I just access via VNC to check everything and run the next BATCH.

I have it set so my wife receives a notification when motion is detected at our Hummingbird feeder. Clicking on the notification brings you to a webpage showing the camera.
