Overdrive new release checker
Attached is an exe that checks Overdrive for new ebook additions. I check daily for new additions, so I wanted something that I could add to Startup to automate the process.
By default, it runs and exits if it detects that there are no new additions. If there are new additions, a message box will pop up: click on "set last to current" to acknowledge the new additions.
By default, it checks FLP. It will probably work with most sites that use the new Overdrive.
To use it with B(rooklyn)PL, create a shortcut, and add the following to the command line:
-URL- http://digitalbooks.brooklynpubliclibrary.org -NEWEBOOKS- 'New @ Brooklyn Public Library'
-URL- http://bibliomation.lib.overdrive.com -NEWEBOOKS- 'Recent Additions: eBooks'
I tried it on Win 7 and XP. On one Win7 machine it didn't work (running Internet Explorer stand alone also crashed).
