In researching ways to have timely WvW information (without a second monitor) I came across the Rainmeter overlay. It was actually recommended in Map chat on one of the borderlands by someone listening to our conversation in TS. I'm sharing the information below in the event others find it useful.
a) First download the Rainmeter download manager
b) Next install the WvW Overlay Skin
c) There is also an Overlay for World Boss's that shows their respective respawn timers.
After installing the WvW and World Boss overlays, I moved their shortcuts to my desktop. This does NOT imbed into the GW2 client. It sits over it on your desktop. Some quick tips are also found below and in the links above.
This uses a public API from Anet and is entirely legal. If terms of service were to ever change regarding this I will remove this post and advise accordingly. If you find any other tips or tricks with this overlay please share.
