Description: In response to castaway's idea for a 'My Active Nodes' nodelet, I have written a console-based solution using my PerlMonksTickers module. It is a working example. You can use it as is, or enhance it to meet your particular needs. Run it with no arguments to get a usage statement. It does not require a PerlMonks login.

use warnings;
use PerlMonksTickers;
use Getopt::Long;
use Time::Local;

# as an optimization, we can avoid looking for replies to nodes
# we posted more than a certain number of days ago.
# to inhibit this, set to 0 or undef.
my $ignore_my_posts_older_than_days;

my $window_in_hours = 1;

my $user;

sub usage
{
  die <<EOF;
@{_}Usage: $0 --user USERNAME [--ignore DAYS] [--window HOURS]
--ignore says to not look for replies to nodes I posted more than
that many days ago.  Default is no limit.
--window says to report only nodes that have been posted within
the past so many hours.  Default is 1.
