Some of you may remember the idea I drafted up quite a while ago for a program you could have running in the background which would notify you of activity in chats that you had selected. Well, back then I actually made a working prototype, but nothing else came of it, and it seems the prototype has gone to the happy place for code. You can read the initial post here
Yesterday night and tonight I had some time on my hands however, and I thought I would cook up a real version of it. So here is the initial version of the program.
Main restrictions: Doesn't work with locked chats since they require auth. Can be added upon request. Drawbacks by using java is a large memory footprint, but still less than having a lot of tabs/windows open in a browser I suppose.

If you have any suggestions I'd like very much to hear them.
