I'm looking at how to notify others in a kind of twitter way, but a bit more obtrusive, to alert them to something that is about to happen, or did happen or even is happening.
QA Website will be restarted in 2 mins
Code cutoff for sprint 2.2.1 in 1 hour
Trunk build broken
I like Growl for announcements, but is there a tool that can sit on everyone's desktop and send these announcements to all clients as well?
The reasoning behind it is that people know what is happening when it happens. Not "Oh, the QA environment is down. That's a bug"
