Hi all :)
A few weeks ago I decided to try my hand at multiplayer descent but I couldn't find any games to play via the tracker. Eventually I had an idea to write something that watches the trackers and notifies you when new games appear (this was before I found out about the descent2 channel, and that its IRC bot monitors the D2X-XL trackers as well).
This app is unfortunately Windows only. I don't have a Mac and I have no experience at all with *nix dev. Apologies to those of you who use those OSs.
I intended to debug this fully before releasing it, but I figured that it would be best to get some real world feedback sooner rather than later.

Well, I think I've said all that I need to for now. Thoughts...? Ideas...? Comments...? Please let me know.
Finally, thanks to karx11erx and to everyone else who's contributed to this AWESOME project. Thanks for keeping Descent alive!
