Display Win8 "toast" notifications from your scripts

ToastNotification is a tiny console tool for Windows 8 which allows you to display "toast" notifications (pop-up alerts which briefly show a message, then disappear automatically) from your own scripts.

The program is a tiny download, which contains a single executable (L2ToastNotification.exe), an image which you can replace to customise the look of your notification, and a text file (Toast.txt) with instructions.

Using ToastNotification is as easy as passing it three arguments, each enclosed in quotes: a title, line 1 and line 2.

L2ToastNotification "Pay attention!" "Free space running short on" "Drive D: !!!"

You must supply three arguments, or ToastNotification crashes (passing it an empty string, "", works fine).

Each argument can only display a maximum of about 27 characters, so choose carefully.

ToastNotification also displays the 90x90 image ToastNotification.png in your alert. The default image contains the developer's logo, but you can either delete this to leave a blank space, or replace it with a logo or some other image of your own.

Whatever you choose, the alert displays for around 7 seconds before disappearing. You cannot change this timeout, the alert's appearance (background colour etc) or define a "click" action for the alert.


An easy way to give your scripts a professional touch.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.19.11 

• You can now reply to a group message privately in your 1:1 chat. Tap and hold a message in a group chat and select "More", then "Reply Privately".
• When editing a photo or video, you can tap the smiley icon to add stickers. 
• From the Status tab, you can now 3D touch to preview a contact's status.
