Growl Binding for AS3

Today I wanted to realize an idea I had for a long time: I wanted to have growl notifications for an AIR application that I'm currently writing. But I realized at some point that I need an UDP Socket to communicate with the growl subsystem and that this kind of Socket is not available from Flex. I was really disappointed but I finally found a different solution: there is a project as3growl which implements the network protocol for growl which uses the distributed objects over tcp approach. I'll give it a try tomorrow.
