This neat little tool for winXP installs quick and without problems. It is not too big, looks nice and does a great job with providing the maximum amount of information on the smallest space possible.
Each channel (klip) that is being setup (hundreds to choose from) minimize to the size you define (icon is my favorite) and pop open to show a headline once you hover over it with the mouse.
Klipfarm allows you to setup alarms for certain keywords that will make a small notification window popup at the bottom right.
