Based on the announcement that my devdays app will be used in an environment where there is internet access available, I've updated to include the TwitterFall-esque feature that I originally removed.
It now looks like this:
The difference is the twitter messages displayed at the side. These are looked up based on a search term specified in the config file. If there are no new messages to display or it's not possible to reach the internet (network down, etc.) then one of an assortment of programmer related quotes is displayed instead.
The processing of commandline parameters is also improved.
Now it's even better, please vote for it. ;)
