Limiting notifications per minute on mac


Recommended Posts

As you can see below I opened my mac after loading a folder that has source code into it for the first time I was over-run by notifications by growl which not only limited my access to my own computer but was also using a ton of cpu in the process.


I blurred file names for privacy but you get the gist of what happened. I would just suggest keeping sync away from growl or if you are going to use growl limit it to sending only so many sync file notifications per minute or so. I actually had to kill growl off to be able to access my computer again. Then it started using mountain lions built-in notification system which automatically collected them into one notification so as not to over-run my entire screen. I realize that this is a problem with growl more so than sync but sync I feel could use a on/off switch for notifications (at least)...
