Can I get an alert box on my local computer when someone access my web page?

P: n/a

i have created a web application in c# and ASP.NET1.1 that is having a
button on click of which
spawns a web page which is hosted on my localhost!
i have given the URL to my friend.Now he/she access it .
I want a alert box or some notification on my local computer that the
webpage from my localhost
is being accessed.
Is it possible with .NET 1.1 ?
If yes, how?

i'd write a windows service that added itself to the system tray and
exposed a remoting call. then the web service coudl notify it on request
start.

The web server on your computer can not display anything in the user
interface on your computer, so you need a process running in the user
interface, and a way for the web server to send a signal to it.

This can be done in many different ways. A windows service and remoting,
as bruce suggested, is one of them. A simple text file and a program
that looks for changes in it could be another.

When the web site is accessed it could write some kind of a record to a
local file or database.
Then a local (separate) application could check this periodically and notify
you when something of interest has changed.
