    Hi all!

    I almost always miss the giveaways in the BHW, so decided to code something that would let me know automatically whenever a new thread has been posted. So I made a script to do it!

    This script keeps checking the giveaway sub-forum for "New Threads" and notifies you once there is one. It doesn't pick up new replies, so you don't have to keep looking at one thread again and again, because there is a new reply.

    It can work with any sub-forum in BHW that doesn't have a sub-sub-forum (e.g. Blackhat SEO, WHitehat SEO, Lounge and so on..). TO enter other sub-forum URL, provide your own when prompted initially. I do not recommend you to install this script on your server as it has not been made for production use, but you can install it on your local Wamp / Xampp. To install, just copy the folder called notification and place it in your web root so that it looks like http://127.0.0.1/notification. Point your browser to http://127.0.0.1/notification and keep it open. It will alert you with updated threads when ever there is one posted. You can also setup the time difference between each check (in seconds) when initially prompted.

    Please let me know if there is any bug.
