Gmail Notifier Plus, a Love Story
Gmail Notifier Plus was/is an application for Windows 7, originally released on Neowin.net here; (http://www.neowin.net/forum/topic/777838-rel-gmail-notifier-plus-for-windows-7/)[http://www.neowin.net/forum/topic/777838-rel-gmail-notifier-plus-for-windows-7/]
The original author disappeared and left the app abandoned, alone, wandering the tubes without purpose. The folks who used this app (myself included) were saddened by the author's absence, as the app was really pretty good and there wasn't anything on Windows that could hold a candle to it. There was however, a few big problems; Constant errors and crashing plagued Gmail Notifier Plus and the desire for new features and improvement to current features was high.
Try as I might, I was not successful in getting a line on the original author through multiple channels. Enter Reflector. The source was exported from the binaries using reflector and lordy was it a mess. It was an ungodly mess. For Reflector had mangled the source and turned it into unusable mush. But I had a starting point with which to start to rebuild this fun little app. It would no longer roam alone.
And so that brings us to present day. Gmail Notifier Plus, as it is on this repo is completely usable. I'll get some proper download packages put together in due course.
I honestly don't know if this will work on Vista. I would never install it to find out. This is developed and tested on Windows 7. You need to have .NET 4.0 installed in order to use Gmail Notifier Plus.

I've kept the author in the copyright for the original code that Reflector had exported, regardless of whether it's actually close to what was originally written, and in the UI. I've removed the donate button from this version as the code has been modified dramatically. If anyone wishes to donate to the original author please visit this thread on neowin.net; (http://www.neowin.net/forum/topic/777838-rel-gmail-notifier-plus-for-windows-7/)[http://www.neowin.net/forum/topic/777838-rel-gmail-notifier-plus-for-windows-7/].
