I had a bit of trouble getting it to work, but in the process I think I took the RedPill. I had no idea about the HIDDEN-hidden folders. This led to some enlightening reading. I'm still not sure why the program doesn't always work. It seems that sometimes (most of the time actually) when it opens the browser the file doesn't make it into the temporary internet folder. I'm still gnawing on that. Thanks for the educational brain teaser
One problem though: Dilbert.com changes the offset (2918) and path every week, at the moment it is: "http://dilbert.com/dyn/str_strip/000000000/00000000/0000000/000000/00000/7000/700/7585/7585.strip.gif" for Dilbert of May, 12th... (underlined parts will change...) Your version will only load strips of week 21.April to 27.April, the remaining ones are pictures prepared for filling in your own punchlines
Right now I know the first two "7" are linked to the file number 7585 (filenumber Q&R 1000), but I don't know how to guess the filenumber for next Monday (until now ). When I have more news I will add them here in this thread.
Hi Gerd and all other interested, here is a new update. Now it is unimportant to know the number of the picture, because now i read it from the website. An disadvantage is that it only works for the current day, but if this is true "... from the web onto my harddrive every morning..." this should be no problem.
