    Merry Christmas, Shawn, and thank you for this present! Personally, I find the new more modern flyout notification mildly obnoxious. Takes a lot of real estate, too.

    Merry Christmas Dick. :)

    I like the way the new flyout itemizes each file it's syncing, but yeah I do wish it could be smaller with a scroll bar for the itemized files.
