About

When someone starts talking about unicorns you definitely want in on the action. You can now make sure to never miss another interesting chat about these fabled creatures by getting a special audible alert whenever anyone mentions the word unicorn. Simply install this user script and never miss out on the unicorn action again.

License

This script is released under The Unicorn Software License

Download

Install script or view source.

Platform

The script has been tested in Firefox 3.6.14 on Mac OS X.

Code

The script injects a jPlayer div and uses the ThirdPlace.newMessage event to play a sound bite when the message contains the word unicorn.

Attribution

Thanks a bunch to Josh Gitlin for his excellent work on the ThirdPlace classes. They made developing this script much easier.

Okay, so maybe "soon" wasn't the right word, but, ThirdPlace v0.5a is now on StackApps (CC @GeorgeEdison) –  Josh Jan 31 '12 at 0:20
