in reply to There's a reply to a reply to one of my posts

Since it doesn't seem that this feature is really ever going to make it into production (for a variety of reasons), I recommend the following alternative:

Write a script that:

  1. Uses the user nodes info xml generator ticker to fetch and store a list of all your nodes, and periodically updates the list (maybe a few times a day, for example)
  2. Queries xml node thread or newest nodes xml generator to check to see if there are any new nodes in the threads in which you're participating.
  3. Via send chatter send yourself a /msg notifying you of the activity in the threads in which you're participating.

Then, post your script here in the Cool Uses section, or maybe the Code section, and rake in a few well-earned XP. Post a link to it in this thread too.

It would be a fun exercise, and you would learn a lot about the Monastery's XML tickers. Parse the various tickers with XML::Twig's "simple" interface.

    A script is one thing, but for me such a beast has to be somehow part of the site. Seems to be a good candidate for the free nodelet and a javascript hack. let me see...

    How about the following: via a button in the free nodelet one can invoke a javascript that
    - calls [Recently Active Threads] in full thread mode - builds a list of all root nodes in which the user has participated - calls [Recently Active Threads] in Root-and-Node mode - builds a list of all root nodes - calculates the intersection of both lists - prints those nodes as links to the free nodelet
    This would have the advantage that the effect would get be affected by the "last checked" setting. mmh, maybe also provide a "have seen them all" button in the nodelet? Comments welcome.

[Tanktalus]: Problem is, it's a test for another monk - as in, another monk letting me interview for his company :)
[Tanktalus]: He might see me here... :D
[Discipulus]: it's me? ;=)
[marioroy]: Lady_Aleena could it be a quoting issue? I just tried find with -exec on the command line. find . -name "*.pl" -exec ls -l {} \;
[Tanktalus]: No, I know who he is, nice try. But if you're hiring, let me know :)
[Tanktalus]: Lady_Aleena: yeah, I can reproduce your issue, it's confusing alright :)
[Tanktalus]: I'm sure it'll make perfect sense once we figure it out :)
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, not a quoting error. I can't run it on the command line. It is when I put it in qx() where it falls apart.
Discipulus hired to use Perl in Eataly? haired maybe
