It could be that someone just wants to watch for a certain event viewer message to occur. I wanted this a few months ago to check for web sites updates, but realized that it would get a lot more complicated because of ad banner rotation.

I'll just create it for myself, blog about it, then you'll come begging for it to be added to PSCX... ;-)

Yeah I was just wondering if it would add much value above and beyond Write-Progress. :-) It would no doubt be a better looking UI but then again it would be disjoint from the PowerShell console window.
