"Once complete, the next few minutes I spent in fine tuning the notifier, like add an image (the gmail logo of course!!).

"Eureka!! It worked, Yippee !! That's what I like most about Python. Even a complete newbie like me can create working code in such a short time! Having written the it, now I wanted to make it more user friendly. So the next day, I ended up writing a setup.py script to provide ease of installation. Believe me, writing this setup was far more difficult than the original notification script ! But because of this script, installation is super-easy. Just run the setup.py file, that's it!

"So finally, it was done. I did some minimal testing but it should work well. You may download this from here."
