Monitor your dropbox folder changes with GeekTool and PHP

I daily use Dropbox to share files with my friends and customers and with a lot of folders shared it can become quite distracting to have growl popping up every 2 seconds.

On the other hand its often nice see what people are actually doing with your files, and with the excellent GeekTool for OSX its posible to embed this information on your desktop, like this:

The script is written in php which i think is available on the Mac out of the box (I certainly dont remember installing it my self).

The script is available here - you need to edit the file and put your dropbox event feed in the $feedUrl variable and your ready to go :)
