Boxcar Forwarder Plugin

Forward notifications to the Boxcar iPhone app.

Get a push notification on your iPhone whenever a Growl notification is recieved. The plugin lets you set preferences for minimum priority, only forwarding when you are away from your computer, and even which information is included in the message.

{PRIORITY} - the priority of the notification
{SENDER} - the name of the machine where the notification originated
{TIMESTAMP} - the date and time that the notifciation was received

Priority: High
Sender: Superman

System Monitor: Ping failed - The host 'my server' was not reachable. The response was: TimedOut
