Re: want to create a small application or script
Do you mean your LAN or your internet connection?
You could set up some sort of script that pings the DNS or LAN gateway and only returns something for you when "host unreachable" occurs or when packets are dropped.
Perhaps a cronjob or something, I'm not sure how they work, but people often create a cronjob when they want something to run every so often.
Just a thought for what it is worth.
EDIT: I'm not aware of a way to make a script bring up a taskbar notification though, for that you'd need something more sophisticated.

Any sufficiently advanced bug is indistinguishable from a feature.
