A jQuery plugin to provide monologue style messaging.

"Choones" is a jQuery plugin, with a little markup and some styles that mimics Growl's "Music video" theme (pop up, from the bottom.) Sending messages back to the user is often something that uses some strange design pattern of adding a box to the top of a page, that pushes down the content or, even worse, thrown into a 'lightbox'. Choones is something that I've implemented a number of times, finally recognising this pattern I thought it was worth sharing.
