Check the forum for new posts

Attached the latest version of the "forum watcher". I fixed some minor glitches, now it works fine on Windows 7 and XP, but I have not yet had the occasion to test it on Windows 10 and Win XP. Feedback welcome :thumbsup:

What it does? Every two minutes it downloads a 20kB page from the forum and checks for the ten latest posts. If it finds new posts, it will popup and inform you about it. Hit Escape to minimise the window, move the mouse over the link to see the post's content.

The new version uses a SysLink control, so that you can click directly on the post you want to see:

Version 2 attached above has got a status bar, and the time the yellow bubble with the post's text remains visible is now 20 seconds. With F5 you can refresh any time. Let me know if it works on Win10, too.
