You might want to try my threaded interface: you can subscribe to a thread and every time a new node is added to it the thread will be displayed in the Subscribed Threads section.

It is rather crude at the moment but I promise I will improve it when PM offers an interface to external thread managers.

New threads are listed in the... New Threads section, you can subscribe to them, at which point they move to the Subscribed Threads section. From there you can access the nodes in the thread. If you mark the thread as read it disappears from the list, but every time a new node is added to it the Thread origin and the new messages are listed again. I use it to monitor interesting threads, this way even a month later when a node is added during a week-end, which I might miss from the Newest Nodes list, it shows there.

If you want to use it on a regular bases and if you have a web server available just ask me for the code, so you don't depend on (and overload!) my poor server here.

    Nice page, mirod!

    deprecated: you could also use Shendal's Perl/Tk Newest Nodes client, which uses my PerlMonks modules to provide a threaded interface, which remembers which nodes you have seen, and offers mechanisms for marking whole threads read or unread. It does not have a "subscription" mechanism like the one in mirod's page, but it makes it easy to see which threads have unread messages (because it only shows threads with unread messages).
