how do you keep up to date?
i posted regarding this matter on another site as well. well i didn't copy the entire topic, so it's technically not cross-posting i hope.
i have school and other things across my usual weekday so i tend to forget to check bakaupdates etc. i don't think i'm the only one that hates to not get the latest chapters asap.
my first question was, is there currently any automatic system that lets you know when a chapter is released?
i quickly made up this little page:
it's still pretty manual but it's better than browsing through my folders, then switching to firefox and running through bakaupdate's database.
i suppose i could use bakaupdate's RSS, but only shows me the latest releases, in a mixture of both the series i want and don't want to know about. if i wanted to check a release that's even a bit older, i have to do it manually.
i actually want to develop a program that sits in your taskbar. you can add/remove/edit manga(s) that you're reading. it would be like an itunes for manga? if new releases are out, it'll notify you.
my obstacle is a central server for the clients to connect to would be needed. i'm wondering if anyone's willing to help - in any way at all.
please tell me your opinions.
