I have this version I coded up in Perl pretty quickly, and if you guys enjoy it I might spend some more time developing it. I have been using it a lot just because my subscription ran out and i was sick of looking at the ads, and I mainly am a lurker these days. Let me know what you think, and if you would use it regularly. Remember this has basically NO features and is a barebones reader, so don't just flip out saying it needs this and that. If interest is high enough I'll think about continuing development.

I have tested it in IE, Mozilla, and Opera successfully.

Doesn't work with Firebird... :confused: But works fine in IE.

Hmmm, I'd suggest that you contact the AT forum admin before going around telling people about this. You might want to get his/their permission first.

You mean I don't have to look at that big open empty space on the left side of the screen that I've had to look at since they ripped my subscription right out of my hands?

Firebird with a customized css file fixes that nicely ;)

Wow, that's actually pretty cool! The closest I could get to doing that stuff would be to have monkeys do lots of copying/pasting for me. I don't program anything.

That is a pretty cool program. I have no use for it, but it is still pretty cool :)
