    I get that a lot as well. I wonder why CNN changes the wording slightly at least 5 times for ever story?

    Know what someone needs to do? There should be a way in this script to set a % match which would compare the message about to be emailed to the last message sent, and abort if they are similar. For me, instead of emailing an alert, it sends a text message to my phone. I can't tell you now many times I'll get "such and such happened" followed by "such and such happened, sources say" or something like that.

    Would be kind of a fun to write too.

    I went back and check mine and I don't seem to have gotten one either. I don't know if I have it set up right or not. I just have the file set up as a event to run every 15 minutes. I read the instructions, but really didn't understand them. So I might not have mine set up right.

    Has this script been updated. I use it but haven't seen breaking news in quite some time.

    Speaking News Alerts

    I went through and clean up all my scripts, to just put on the ones that I really use. I just had so much stuff that I never used.
    I didn't use the email programs, so I took it off.
    Now I am looking for the News update program that doesn't use the email. I am getting CNN news update on the status page, which is what I want.
    But what I am missing is the news alerts that would be announced through out the day. I would get at least one a day, usually more.
    I am getting nothing now. Could some one tell me what script I am to be using to do this, or can I still do it without using an email program?
    I miss hearing a news up date every now and then.
    Even if someone would repost or direct me to the right script.
    Thank you,
    Dan

    Perhaps I should have been a little more specific in my last post. Largely the updates I made to this script are used in Cinemar Mainlobby, utilizing a scene that has a WebLobby window displaying the news story and a variable list of w90-w99 containing the headlines, which trigger the update to the web page. The updates I made to the script are as executed as followed:
    Dumps the previous data from w90-w99 Virtual Devices
    Fills w90-w99 with the current headlines from CNN
    On each fill pass for each virtual device. Homeseer generates a simple redirect web page to the 'Printer-Friendly' Version of the headline's story. (IE - w90 would have a page called 'headlinew90.htm'. Again the only thing that this page does is redirects to the correct story.

    CNN didn't exactly make it easy for me to do this either, I had to almost completely dissect the source code for several of there pages, and then also pages of VBScript and Javascript functions. If any of you are interested in this, I will be more than happy to send you some of my files. For a screen shot of what some of these screens look like go to: http://www.cinemaronlineforums.com/f...=asc&&start=29

    View the rest of that topic to see the rest of my screenshots. Have a great day, and sorry for any confusion.
