RSS Feed Sync Program
I was thinking of this one program. Similar to the way MS Outlook works, with notifications on the taskbar for new emails, however with RSS feeds instead. For example to check whether there are updates on forums, or other websites which you may or may not want email's from, but rather just a notification as to whether any changes are made. MyBB has built in RSS Syndication, and an Archive mode even (which I probably wouldn't use because of the RSS option), so perhaps even if I can just get it down for MyBB, it would be beneficial to others.

What do you think of this idea?

I'm at a halt on about 4 projects right now...

-BitCrypt (having issues with dimensions)
-Quick ISOMount (haven't figured out UDF yet)
-RegSeeker (need to figure out a plan for export to smaller filesize and faster comparison)
-TLF Breaker (just need more time - this is a HUGE project, you have no idea. My main character class is already bigger than 60% of most my programs in full.)

I will finish all these, well hopefully including that game, as i've got it organized, and very clean at the moment, it's just the time and motivation to make more characters, make levels, figure out the A.I., scores, etc...

I was planning on doing something with Youtube as well, for popular reasons. Something cool to retrieve info or something else. More to attract people here for the source, if I make something unique out of it.

RE: RSS Feed Sync Program
Looks like i'll need to review how RSS works a bit more:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<rss version="2.0" xmlns:content="http://purl.org/rss/1.0/modules/content/" xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/">
    <channel>
        <title><![CDATA[TechLifeForum - All Forums]]></title>
        <link>http://tech.reboot.pro/</link>
        <description><![CDATA[TechLifeForum - http://tech.reboot.pro]]></description>
        <pubDate>Mon, 14 May 2012 05:17:07 +0000</pubDate>
        <generator>MyBB</generator>
    </channel>
</rss>

That's all i'm receiving for the webrequest, so data must be loaded someplace afterwards for the actual feed.

<pubDate> looks cool though, I may use that to tell the user when the last check was :)

If I can retrieve the data, then i'll use an XMLReader. All I did was a simple webrequest, but it can't be too difficult. I just haven't done much with RSS before other than bookmark feeds.

Check out my pseudo Metro styling though:


lol

RE: RSS Feed Sync Program
Tried archive mode, my method of retrieval works nicely:
Code:
string str = new WebClient().DownloadString(@"http://tech.reboot.pro/archive/index.php/forum-17.html");
string[] str_matches = new Regex("\">(.*?)</a><span class=\"replycount\">(.*?)</span>").Matches(str).Cast<Match>()
    .Select(x => string.Format("{0} - {1}", x.Groups[1].Value, x.Groups[2].Value)).ToArray();

textBox1.Text = string.Join(Environment.NewLine, str_matches);

RE: RSS Feed Sync Program
Now if I was to make this a strict TLF project, I could parse the replies out, and test it for futuristic changes, as well as test for entirely new entries here. For the forum i'm retrieving these values from.

RE: RSS Feed Sync Program
Thanks, I kind of have a slight craving to try some new stuff lately, whether that is bad or good.
