You know, that's a good idea.
Might be worth a look at least, the Saviour PC toolbar is pretty useful.

perhaps it could be something like an archive of questions asked with solutions from previously asked questions with various possible responses getting rid of the pointless answers.  If your question isn't archived then you can click on a thing to go to the website and it automatically logs you on.  Basically your search engine placed in it but to eliminate responses that were not helpful.

You mean  like a Google Site Search?

Where it just looks at all the topics what whatnot... (the only problem is that it does index some useless information)

I meant in the system tray.
Then my email inbox doesn't get cluttered up.

Why are you more concerned about saving 15kb of HDD space than 2mb of memory space.. ?

I dont mean a google search site im just saying something that you can download that already has everything archived and put in order according to what the question is about of all the old questions and responses already on your pc so that you don't end up asking a question that was asked say 6-7 months ago.  With a search utility in the program to search itself for similar questions.   Not on the web but already stored on your pc.  Like you know how windows has a help and support kind of thing something based off of something like that but with the questions that are already on here.  Another person mentioned a chat thing as well which could be integrated?  I don't know i am just throwing things out there.

I'm not.
It's just that I have enough emails already, I'm not short of space or RAM (far from it, I use Gmail and I also have 1Gb of RAM) but I don't want hundreds more emails.
What I meant was having it pop up, or change colour, when a new post is made.
It was just a suggestion it may not be feasible, I don't know.

A program connected to ComputerHope Forums that sits next to your system clock on you toolbar would be really cool. It could tell you like what new posts there have been since you last booted your comptuer or since you last checked. With that program you can also manage your account and go to the website and stuff. It would be really cool.

Great Idea !

This may take some time, however....

It'd have to run from my system tray!

Within Windows?
That could be a problem.
What about VirtualPC?
LOL, best I could find.

a system tray icon sounds like a great idea however there are some major tasks to overcome fist.

some of the forum software will need a MOD in order to notify people of new replys in threads that they wanted to keep updated on

chat program shouldent be difficult to write

mabey somthing like a list to alot of helpfull FAQs for people who are new to the computer world or mabey need a refresher on a certian pice of overclocking infor before they blow thier prossesor's brains to the moon ;)

i would say that its a go but it needs a compiled list of features to present to the programmer and find out what he can and cant do. some of these things would be complicated.

I have to reply because jackpkmn has been named next to this thread for the past month and every time I come to the Other board, I see his name and it makes me think of Pokémon and it's been really bugging me for some weird reason.  I've finally cracked!





And I'm also wondering what the current status is on this program.
