    Lightbulb New projects highlighted on the project status page

    It would be handy if new projects on this page ...

    http://stats.free-dc.org/stats.php?page=boinc_status

    ... were highlighted for a while, maybe a week or so.

    Saves me trawling though the list every day

    nod, I looked at it last night. I'd have to add a datetimestamp to the projects table so we'd know when it was added. Not a bad idea for other audit reasons anyway.

    I'll do it on the new box, trying not to maintain the tables in two different places...

    OK, how about rather than start messing with db table structures, just automagically post to a thread in a forum that's shown on the main page that a row has been inserted? Including the project name and a link would be great.

    I always forget how many projects there were yesterday, so end up scanning the whole list every day. I guess one solution would be for me to write the number on a postit note stuck on my monitor

    Al.

    p.s. I know nothing about databases. For all I know the whole thing is run by gnomes who collect underpants for profit.

    p.p.s. Can you guess that I'm desperate to get the 100 projects crunched milestone?
