That's the point. It's a one time notification. It'd have to be
sufficiently annoying to catch your attention. Perhaps takes over the
console for a second, so that you realize there's something there.

Yeah, we need to come up with a canned set of actions. perhaps a spell
or a script that can make sure our chroots are clean.
First thing: emptying out that persistent.net.rules file or whatever
it's called. And verifying that all the appropriate spells are
installed. Althouhg, I would've thought cleanse would be doing that :/

Horde seems to be hit or miss. My work blocks anything that's not http
so I understand the issue. It's damn irritating.
