That is a good idea too. I am not sure about having multiple
notifications for the bootstrap, but I doubt you can do that.

Thanks for the information.  I'll instead have the notification call a  
script to write the data to a file, and then have that script do what  
I want with the output.

I still am wondering though - can Networker have and use 2  
notifications with the same event and priority?
