There's a nice C2DM push based notifier for android but I'd like to know if there is one for the desktop environment, ideally linux?
Does anyone know if one exists?
If you're looking for a solution which will run on linux, then there's always a the
wget -q -O - https://mtgox.com/code/ticker.php
You can run it in a loop in a terminal :)
Under the xfce desktop environment you could use the
genmon panel plugin and feed it Mt. Gox's last trade data. Speaking of which, I think I'll do that myself. :)
From the site:
It is nothing more than a simple alert-system which alerts you whenever the buy, last or sell is reaching a defined level.
The tool includes audio alerts and user-definable limits.
