Is there a way to resize the popup window of the EventServer?
I modified the Python examples to announce some stuff in XBMC through unix shell but most information does not fit in.

Its done in skin i think. kaidialog.xml. although it would be very usefull to create another notification type that could host more information.
what are you announcing through eventserver? if anything usefull feel free to add as a patch as it might be good for xbmc liveUsb. thx

Could you please check the name of this xml file? I don't find anywhere a file with that name.
I am announcing messages from IRC. If there is interest I can cut out some private data and publish it.

Thanks I successfully widened the Eventbox Smile
I also build a quick & dirty website with php to announce messages to the TV.
Should I submit my "experiments" as a patch,attach it to the forum or pastebin it? Or is there no interest in my gimmicks?

I suggest you do both, it does not hurt to have it for future reference in any case. http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=HOW-TO_submit_a_patch
