dslrim is a DSL reports IM checker.
This small perl program checks for unread instant messages at DSL Reports, our favorite community web site. Many of us who hang out at DSLR spend more time than we should just waiting for people to send us messages. It's a great way to burn a lot of time.
So instead this program just checks for unread IMs and pops up a message to the screen with "You have DSLR IMs!" inviting a visit. No need for a browser to be open, no need to watch anything. It's been remarkably effective at replacing the frequent and pointless distractions of checking for IMs with the less common and slightly less pointless distraction of actually reading those IMs.
