Nicer, friendlier HipChat notification message #531

The current HipChat notification is, in a word, hideous.

This pull request:

  • separates the mashed-together blocks of text (spaces are our friends)
  • uses bold to help highlight and separate bits of the string
  • uses HipChat's HTML capability to make a link to the Errbit problem URL, rather than pasting the ugly long URL string in the body of the message
  • adds a counter for the number of occurrences of the issue

This change is not really usefull. I revert it after merge

That wasn't intended to be included. My mistake.

I disagree about it not being useful, though. The words "NOTIFICATION SERVICE" make that column of the screen unnecessarily wide, constricting screen space for other columns that would actually use that space instead of just have extra empty space next to the notification icon.

However, that belongs in a separate pull.
