Desktop alert, when an entry has been made in SQL in vb.net

Hi all.

One for the thinking caps.

Is it posible in vb.net, to have a tray icon on a pc, however, to use tis the display a graphic or text in the buttom right corner as and when someone enters a record in a certain table in a sql database.

Similar to outlook 2003, but everyone at the same time over our network?

If it is, can anyone point me in the right direction, as i have look over google and think i am keying in the wrong words to find anything to help.

By the way, i am using Visual Studio 2008

Thank you in advance and I hope this all makes sense.
