GET / HTTP/1.1[CRLF]Post back if this doesn't do it and I will take a crack at a .vi when
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/20060419 Fedora/126.96.36.199-1.2.fc5 Firefox/188.8.131.52 pango-text Web-Sniffer/1.0.24[CRLF]
Except that your User-Agent: string will probably be some version of IE.
The string the modem sends back will have lots of frame stuff but should
be consistent enough to parse.

Now that I have this, I might get back to this when I have the time.

Actually, we already had a discussion where I posted an initial (messy) example meant to test whether this would work using the internet toolkit VI here. When I have enough time I will try to get it to work using this (although, if you know of a pure G way, that would be much preferable). Then, of course, if that works, comes the part of writing the program itself, which I don't know when I'll be able to get to. Obviously, if I will do it at some point, I will post the result, as this is meant as a public service for the regular users (although I'm not sure how much the web team will be happy with that ).
The main problem would be with determining how far back to go to check for new posts. Since using the user's tracker is not an option (people could reply to old threads) the program would have to resort to looking at the boards themselves and that point it could get complicated.
