Home Server Status Updates

What would you guys think about the following addition to HSS?

 

Within 'Settings' an additional checkbox/switch that would enable/disable the ability to receive backup notifications from other desktops. These notifications would be simple and in the form of a message stating that a back-up has begun and completed on said computer. Notifications would be delivered via UDP broadcasting over a certain port number. This would enable the application to remain small and without adding anything to the server.

 

Would you want this?

I would use that I think. If I understand correctly, it would mean I could use HSS on my win7 desktop to check whether my wife's puter and my htpc and my laptop have been backed up successfully.

ikon,

 

Correct. As you are sitting at your computer and your wife's computer starting backing up, you would get a balloon tip letting you know that COMPUTERNAME has started a backup. When backup has completed, you would get another balloon tip letting you know that COMPUTERNAME has completed a backup or if the backup was unsuccessful. If you did not catch the balloon tips, then you would be able to right-click the HSS icon in the tray and select a new context menu item, ex: Show Backups, that would open a dialog showing you a list of prior backup messages in a DataGridView. You would then be able to clear the list or simply exit the dialog.

 

Thoughts?
