Once in a while, I come upon a web page that :
- Doesn’t offer an RSS/Atom feed.
- Doesn’t change very often.
- I would like to be warned when it’s updated.
I would like to be automatically warned when such pages change. websec does this :
Description: Web Secretary – Web page monitoring software
A visual Web page monitoring software. However, it goes
beyond the normal functionalities offered by such software. Not only
does it detect changes based on content analysis (instead of date/time
stamp or simple textual comparison), it will email the changed page to
you with the new content highlighted.
- It sends emails. Generating an RSS feed would be much better.
- It sends HTML emails. OK, you can use AsciiMarker to view the changes with a text MUA, but still…
Anybody knows of another piece of software I could use ?
