Is it possible to set up a growl/popup/whichever whenever new News is posted?

Hi pinstripesc!

It may be possible... but the problem is how can you check that the user read it? Or if there are more than one items to read, there isn't a way to tell which one has been read/not read.

Ponder...I suppose really all I'm after is a popup that shows up the first time, and only the first time, a user comes to the site after a new post has been made. I'm not sure how that might work if there is a backlog of news, we wouldn't want it to happen retrospectively, ie. suddenly notifying that the news posted 7 years ago was in fact posted!
