how about a link from the notifier back to this thread so that we can post comments/feature requests/bugs much easily.
Just click on "Check for Updates [v x.x.x.x]".
btw, what does "Read Abridged Posts Only" mean?
You know DC Post Notifier works by checking and loading one of the DC forum RSS feeds (http://www.donationcoder....n=.xml;type=rss2;limit=10
). The body text of an RSS feed (in this case, forum post text) is usually abridged (i.e. cut off after X number of characters) for bandwidth saving and readability. For example, "lanux128" -> "lanu...".
However, since the notifier is for DC geeks like you and me
, there goes the option of "Read Abridged Posts Only". When it's un
checked, we get to read full-length forum posts ("lanux128") instead of abridged ones ("lanu..."). For me often I'm too lazy to open up a new browser window to "read the rest of the story", so I just go through everything in the notifier.
The option will not affect the idle bandwidth usage of the notifier, which consumes around max 2kb per minute when you set checking interval to every 15 seconds.
