I tried it, and no its not very useful for me I'm afraid.
I nearly always have games waiting. What I'd really like would be to have something that works like the email notifications coupled with a system tray notification, ala trillian, where a wee message pops up from my system tray to tell me such and such has moved. If this system tray tool showed how many games I had waiting, which was updated everytime a move was made (ie: push the data rather than pull it every 5 minutes or whatever), it would be perfect for my needs.
So say an opponent moves, then, instead of firing off a move notification email, fire off a message to my system tray tool, which says "Opponent has moved, at 10.17am" This message would also increment the games waiting by 1.
Say I move, a message gets fired off to my system tray tool, which just decrements the games waiting total.
I currently use the email notifications, which are great, but it'd be better for your bandwidth not to have to send the emails, and it'd be better if I didn't have to do the housekeeping that I currently do with all the rhp move notifications.
To be honest, I'm happy enough just using the email notifications, but the tool I described above would be the icing on the cake, even though I don't really know how feasible it is.
Cheers and I hope this helps,
