ygpm is a DSL reports IM checker.
This small C++ program checks for unread instant messages at DSL Reports, our favorite community web site. Many of us who hang out at DSLR spend more time than we should just waiting for people to send us messages. It's a great way to burn a lot of time.
So instead this program just sits in the background and checks for unread IMs, popping up a dialog box when they arrive. No need for a browser to be open, no need to watch anything. It's been remarkably effective at replacing the frequent and pointless distractions of checking for IMs with the less common and slightly less pointless distraction of actually reading those IMs.
This program replaces dslrim, a perl version that worked but was very cumbersome to install on the Windows platform. And unlike the perl version, ygpm appears to work on Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP. It's very small, and the same code compiles on Linux and other UNIX platforms. Full source code is provided.
Disclaimer - this tool is a private effort and is not endorsed, authorized, or otherwise commented on by DSL Reports management. As always, I speak for me only.
