Vendetta Online User Tracker

For all you Vendetta Online players out there, this is an applescript that, when opened, asks for the name of a user. Once entered, the app will open the vendetta active users site in Safari (which you can collapse to the dock if you wish) and refreshes it to see when the selected user comes online. It will then notify you via a dialog box that the user is now online.
