in thread dynamically named arrays

If the box on the other end is a UN*X box you could consider touching a file in each directory holding files called something like '.browser-time'.

If the timestamps of the '.browser-time' and the '.' differ, files where changed or added since your last visit, cause the '.' takes over the timestamp of the latest changed or added file

This can save you some time in searching these things.

    Well, if you're using UN*X, there are things like rdist and rsync that would do the whole works more efficiently.

    The modification time does not "take over the timestamp" of the latest changed or added file. The modification time of a directory only changes when a file is added or removed.
