I do not know how much this is possible.

I was just wondering that if we have a desktop standalone client.Which would refresh from time to time and let the user know whether anyone has posted in those threads which has recently been visited by the user.

So that the user can check that application for any posts , if any then visit the site for details.

We tried something like this with an RSS feed on ONE of the forums (Java in General, i believe).

The additional load on our server brought it to its knees, so it was quickly shut down.

I would imagine that any standalone app that ever so often pinged the server for updates would cause a similar increase in workload, and also kill the server.

I'm sure someone will correct me if i'm wrong, but you can search around this forum for more details on that.

We can restrict the minimum refresh time for the client.So that no one should set the refresh time less than 1 hour.
