Ever missed a battleground queue because you were surfing and had WoW in the background? No more! This addon will unmute sound (if muted) and play a sound when the battleground queue accept window pops up (even when backgrounded.)

Q: How many battleground queues have you missed since you wrote this addon?
Q: Is there a similar addon for Dungeon Finder queues?
