... and history database too, to pick up URLs, I think the hist db is
Sounds cool. But have you worked out if it's possible to get netscape to
dump the URLs/content of pages it's looking at? Or do you mean use this
prog as a proxy? That'd slow down browsing a little :(
BTW I think one of the Samba guys (not too clear on this BTW) did a cool
hack which could cut and paste HTML (including forms) directly from
Netscape, as a kind of annotation/personal log tool. Sounds like complete
magic. Whatever techniques he used for that may also help here.
Also www.genehack.org and www.jwz.org both contain stuff about a concept
called Intertwingle which would be a kind of personal mail concept
indexer... vaguely related.
Good luck with this, sounds cool,
