Know what the turbine is doing by glancing at your Windows toolbar.
|From simple emojiis|
|as a dial|
|or a graph|
You can (optionally) have Windows style notifications when the turbine stops and starts.
Simply click the toolbar icon to cycle through the display options or right-click to show missed events (like stops and starts) and for full setting control.
Try the Windows toolbar widget now (msi installer)
Works from XP onwards
