Intro: Facebook LED Blink on New Notifications and Messages

This is a demonstration of a small project for Facebook I've been working on.
A green LED will blink when a new notification is available, and a red LED will blink when a new message is received.
The green LED will stop blinking when you read the new notification(s), and the red LED will stop blinking when the new messages have been read.

    That's pretty cool- and very minimal-looking.

    I'm working on a project doing a similar task with message notifications- would you be willing to share your source code for whatever is running on the PC that detects Facebook messages?

    Thanks :) I'm working on an instructable that will have everything that's needed (including the source code). The part that detects new messages has a limitation however: You must already have a chat window open and minimized with the person that sends you the message; otherwise, the new message will not be detected.
