     This tiny app will inform you of new submissions on PSC and demonstrates how to implement ownerdrawn menus to add icons and change the font/color of your menus in the simplest way possible. Years ago I posted a submission to monitor for new submissions on PSC. That submission did much more than check for new postings and as such it broke one of codings' golden rules - never hardcode addresses/strings. For that app it was neccessary, but as is inevitable, things changed at PSC and elements of that app have become inoperative accordingly. I've simplified this app to only check for new submissions and the only hard coded address used is one that is unlikely to change until a complete revamp of PSC occurs.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
