Keeping track of comments
What the hell is up with people making comments on posts from yesterday? I mean, that's like, a day ago almost. Really, sheesh.

So, yeah, I was thinking about maybe coming up with some tool to keep track of comments on other people's posts, something that will let me know about any new comments so that I don't have to go back through my friends page to know about anything new. So, I'm thinking something that will take a base reading going back a certain number of days, and then, every time it ran, it would let me know about any new comments since the last time it ran.

This sounds like a good next project.

Yeah, but you're not quite as enthusiastic about it as you were a minute ago. :P

Note to a baffled future self:

This is a reference to the fact that I initially screwed up the closing ital tag so that most of the message ended up ital, and then I fixed it shortly after. At leats one person saw it before I fixed it.

if you come up with something that does this, you'll have solved the most prevalent complaint i hear from LJ users. there are many, many users who would love this ability.

Please. Pretty please. Please!

Personally, what I want is:
My friends list comes to me in email.

If there's a message I want to follow, I either reply or click a link in the mail.

I then get ALL comments posted to that message in email, too.

Please?

that's exactly the feature that a friend said would convince him to join. if he could have everything emailed to him, all nicey-nice, he'd give in and join.
