    Been seeing these on and off all day. I did though get a couple of alerts today. Anyone else seeing them?

      Messages went away a few hours later. Most interesting though was to watch "System.Net.WebException" message for a few hours.

        Pete,

        I could take a look at it, but it's an HTTP Error 502, which I think would normally mean there was some issues on and between the CNN servers. Not much I could do differently, although I could probably trap the error and avoid the error message. It still wouldn't get the breaking news.

          Today CNN has been posting lost of "CLICK HERE" and "CLICK TO WATCH" stuff on their breaking news. Obviously that isn't breaking news. I've modified the script to catch and ignore these. I'll test it for a bit and then post the changed version.

          If anyone is seeing other types of these that should be ignored, please let me know (your history of breaking news items will be in CNNsettings.ini, in the config directory).

            I guess I'm not very observant, so I didn't notice electron (the original author of the CNN script) has written my.alert. I haven't tried it or even looked at it in detail, but it looks as though it may make the CNN Breaking News script somewhat obsolete. I'll probably keep using the old script, but unless there is some compelling reason I don't think I'll post any new versions. You all should take a look at my.alert.
