Desktop application (software for all versions of Windows) to get updates from ANY forums when new topics and/or blogs (but not comments or replies) are added. Something similar to subscriptions but still not even close to the same. Subscriptions are just for topics and not for forums sections. Some forums also have a lot of depth in section (subsubsections etc). So basically what I need is enter the section of specific forum (no matter how depth it is) and the software should alert me every time the new topic arrives. Lets say once per day or once per 10 hours. Same alert from same forum or section of forum should come as long as I don't cancel it. Same software should work on blogs - so it alerts me every time the blog is added. With using such software, I wouldn't need to check every section of every forum manually and also wouldn't need to worry about missing some topics (some of the forums can be quiet busy such as yahoo answers and not checking it several days would make me lose the topics to read and learn from). What should I look for to get such software? RSS won't work. I search for desktop application.
Kind of impossible. There are so many types of forums and blogs. To find what is new you have to know what is old. So you have to make an index of topics for each site. You need a spider like the web search engines,
