If you have not discovered the world of Growl yet, I suggest that you do.
Growl is a notification system for Mac OS X that displays a small notification box in the corner of your screen. It pops up when you receive a new e-mail, the next song starts playing on your iTunes, or something happens with any number of applications you set it to work with. It is very discreet and stays on your screen for an amount of time determined by the user.

And once you’ve got that going, head over to fixedgear.ca to download our web programmer, Chris Lobay’s, sleek Growl style. It’s called Basics 1.2 and what’s nice about his Growl style is that the application icon slides in all smooth and light and has a nice minimalist layout for the type.
Above is a screen cap of my Basics 1.2 style Growl working with iTunes. Make sure to give it a try. It’s pretty handy. Not to mention pretty to look at.
