The flash sales are not making any sense at all. They are of different durations. I posted in my art studio thread about forbidden whispers store being 60% off- then the flash sale started later (about 30 minutes later) So things might not even be synchronized. (As a webmaster, trust me, it’s not difficult to upload pages within minutes or a minute of each other, plus a banner.)

I pounced on all the stores and bought up what I wanted for the most part- with this internet sales tax thing possibly looming, I don’t intend to add 6.5% (Florida)  to my purchases if I can get them now at a discount.

Here’s a small (free) Windows app that can keep track of changes to the sales ads. Just set the check interval, click Start and click the Minimize button in the upper right corner, it will then close to the tray (it can be opened anytime by clicking the “SW” icon). If some of the ads have changed whenever it checks, if will pop up and play a sound. New ads will have a border around them, it should stay until next time something changes. The borders can be reset by clicking Start again if you want. Left click on an ad to get the context menu, from here you can open the page it links to in a new browser window.

There is a test feature: click Start while pressing the Shift button. Then click the minimize button to send it to the tray. It should now pop up after 30 seconds, simulating that some ads have changed (showing the border around them). Click Start again to reset the borders.

If you change the check interval while it’s running, you must click the Start button if you want it to take effect immediately.

It only downloads a small amount of data (only the HTML code for the page) each time it checks. The images are downloaded once, when they are updated ( = new item).

I actually haven’t tested it for real yet, only the simulation, as there hasn’t been any changes to the ads yet, but it should work as far as I can tell (and if DAZ doesn’t do something that breaks it). Let me know if there are any problems.

BTW, I sort of stole the idea from Cypherfox, hope he doesn’t get mad at me… grin

Today I’m seeing the Wicked Footwear show up twice in the ads in this tool, and Highland Lad isn’t showing up at all. I tried Refresh, but that didn’t help. I tried waiting 15 minutes, but that didn’t help. Did DAZ change something to break it already?

Looks like it. The links normally look like this:

<a href=“http://www.daz3d.com/new-releases/wicked-footwear-010” class=“promo_slide new_release”>

However, with the missing one it looks like this:

<a href=”/—esha—” class=“promo_slide new_release”>

Don’t know if this is something new or just some alternative reference they use sometimes. In any case it’s difficult to do anything about. I could skip the links and just show the pics, that should work I guess. 

The first item in the slideshow code always appears to be repeated at the end of the list also for some reason, that’s why it’s showing up twice. It can be filtered out, but it doesn’t do any harm, so it has low priority.
