ok here is my thought on an interesting module I *know* I would use.
I have 2 irc chats that I am *always* in. I think it would be very, very cool if I could integrate these two channels into my desktop somehow. Hear me out! :)
I don't need any kind of full featured irc client; what I would love to see is the text from that specific chat channel to scroll up on my desktop in a small area, ideally fading in when someone types something, then fading out 10 or so lines up.
The key here is that I don't want to see anything else. I don't want a window to be around it at all-- I want it to look integrated into the background of my theme, perhaps with white text and transperant otherwise.
I think this could look really good if done right, but to be perfectly honest, I have no idea if something like this could be created as a module in litestep.
What do you think?
At the bottom, or a part of another button somewhere, would be an input box to add my own comments.
