"Blinking Updates" in the win32 client

This is just a general question. I'm wondering how (psuedocode-ish) the win32 client knows that one of the users on my friends list has posted. What does it use to check on this? How often does the client check for updates? That sort of thing.

I'm using the latest beta - Version 1.4.7-beta Fri Jun 1 01:34:02 2001

Am kinda wondering if there was any room for discussion on "is there a better way to check for friends updates?" depending on what the current method is.

eh, thanks for whatever answer(s) I get.
