This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
So I'm not sure if this goes in this thread, but its the best I could think of.
The problem I'm trying to solve is I need to write a code to monitor a webpage and when the webpage changes to either send an email and or make a notification sound, because I can't get access to the source code. This webpage is typically open on android devices so there is that to consider. I can't use an existing program mainly because I haven't found one that checks continuously or at least every thirty seconds or so. I am open to using a different programming language, but I've had more experience with java and C / C++. Any suggestions would be great!
