I have been doing some hardcore processing lately using IPython Notebook. Because of that, I needed to check from time to time if it was finished or not. This led me to think that it would be nice to have a big and loud on-screen notification.
I remembered that IPython Notebook 2.0 uses Bootstrap and decided to make a code a magic that shows a model window with a text message. This would make a great nbextension. I will leave this for my next afternoon hack.
