Last update time on Newest Nodes

by nuance (Hermit)
on May 23, 2000 at 21:18 UTC ( #14407=monkdiscuss: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Firstly I want to say that I think the new "mark these as seen" feature on Newest Nodes is really good.

The problem I have is that I frequently don't have time to read the whole thing while I'm in work. This means that I have to leave all items on the page and try to remember exactly what I've seen and what I haven't. A lot of the nodes have very similar names and trying to remember if you've seen a particular node is quite hard.

I use at least two different browsers (Actually I regularly use three :-(), so I don't have the the browser history colouring links to make visited nodes obvious. What I really want it to do is let me have different times for each section. This would mean that I could read all additions to a particular section, and then just clear it, but leave all the other sections that I have not read intact.

A button on each section, and a master button that would update all sections to the current time is what I would really like.

Nuance

Baldrick, you wouldn't see a subtle plan if it painted itself purple and danced naked on top of a harpsichord, singing "Subtle plans are here again!"

    As every day there are more and more questions/notes/replies, I found myself desperately wanting the same Nuance's suggested feature, too.

    I really like the idea, thanx for pointing it out to me. It would take up a little bit more memory than currently, but not too big of an amount and I personally think it would be worth it. Now, what are the chances of this being implemented?

    P.S. Expect to get a vote++ on this sometime soon.

[Corion]: ambrus: I think both of AnyEvent and Prima are pretty tight in their memory management because they both are cooperative multitasking and (I think) both use the Perl memory management for managing things
[Corion]: ambrus: And for Windows, I don't think that Prima knows if there still are messages queued for an object (in the Windows message loop). Finding that out would take lots of effort for little gain
[ambrus]: And even if this works, I'm still not sure you can't get double timeouts from a Timer.
[ambrus]: Corion: well Prima::Object says something like that the cleanup method will send an onDestory message and that you can't get more messages after cleanup, or something.
[Corion]: ambrus: Yeah - I don't think the deep source dive will be necessary if things are implemented as simple as they could be :)) And hopefully I won't need (more) timely object destruction. I can update the screen at 60Hz and hopefully even do HTTP ...
[Corion]: ... transfers in the background. Now that I think about it, this maybe even means that I can run the OpenGL filters on Youtube input :)
[ambrus]: Corion: I mentioned that the unix event loop of Prima always wakes up at least once every 0.2 seconds. Have you found out whether the win32 event loop of Prima does that too?
[Corion]: ambrus: Hmm - I would assume that the onDestroy message is sent from the destructor and doesn't go through the messageloop, but maybe it is sent when a window gets destroyed but all components are still alive...
[ambrus]: Corion: partly deep source dive, partly just conservative coding even if it adds an overhead.
[Corion]: ambrus: Hmm - no, I haven't looked at wakeup intervals ... I wonder why it should want to wakeup periodically because it gets a lot of messages from the Windows message loop (on Windows obviously)
