So, I know this might be a little bit tricky but recently I've managed to customize my desktop exactly how I like it. It is very sexy.

One problem I do have and can't seem to fix or find a solution anywhere on the internet is how to create a small alert for my "downloads" shortcut folder in my dock like iChat when you receive a new message. The image isn't the issue I'm just wondering what you would have to do to enable a folder to do this.

I want the notifications because I prefer to have the "downloads" stack as a folder rather than the stack display in the dock. The only downside is whenever something finishes downloading the icon will bounce once and that is it. It'd be nice to have a small red alert overlay (like a red circle or something) whenever there are new, unchecked downloads.

Help much appreciated!

<Edit> an image of my dock to understand what I mean:

I know right?

I don't think it'd be tooooo hard. Some sort of script maybe?

They should make an app/option in superdocker to make my life easier

I lied, I nearly got it to work through writing my own folder action but turns out making an alert for when downloads are completed is difficult

SOMEONE PLEASE HELP
