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…
