Question Flashing

Is there a way to set things in the taskbar, like a Gaim message, to flash when I get a new message? That's one thing about windows AIM that I really like.

nah i doubt it...the only thing that comes near that i guess, is like in amsn that when you recieve a message it blinks "new message" then it changes to "persons name" continously until you open it...i dont' know if it does this in gaim, but thats probably how close to a flashing task window you are going to get..
too my knowledge anyways.
