Free CI hosting for .Net

It is pretty hard to find free continuous integration server hosting for .Net, unless your project is pretty important.

You can run custom targets as part of your default build process, which could include code analysis, documentation generation, etc.

As a little extra, you can also get a notification of your Appharbor build process in your desktop, using this .Net app: Appharbor Lookout
