March Fundraiser Pledge: teaser

<< < (2/3) > >>

Er, well, first hit for "forum reader software" on Google: It even claims it's "universal" and works independent of the forum app. Hmm. But that's not the one I was thinking of. Then there's this: and this

Mind you I haven't tried any of these and I don't think any are the one I had in mind, though that was from ages ago. And even though most of these now actually look similar to your app, I suspect yours might be better for me because it's being tested against DC first and foremost. :D

It's enough to make you weep. Oh well, hopefully there'll be something in this heap to offer some unique appeal to DCers.

It's the most amount of recursive code I've ever written to handle the messages, and it's reasonably klever at collating threads and messages. I also have intentions to add the ability to handle PM's etc. if it all comes together.

Sounds good (and useful and worthwhile) to me!

Self-inflicted search failure. I looked back through my history, and I was looking originally at RSS readers... then I thought "hell, all I need to do is some nice scraping and parsing, and I'd have a DoCo reader"

Genius...  :-\

Reminds me of the time I was driving along, fiddling with my "trip computer" (remember them?) which was giving me an average speed reading. I recall thinking to myself "wow, imagine if this feature could give a constantly updated indication of current speed as well?"

Then the penny dropped and I realised I'd just re-invented the speedometer.  :'(
