Telegram Desktop Notifier

I wish there was a desktop telegram notifier program for NS. Sigh. I also wish there were a program for notification of new forum posts. Sigh.

You can use Jolt's Subscribe feature to get instant email notification of new posts in forum threads. Why anyone would want to evades me, given the vast number of posts generated here. I wouldn't want to wake up after 8 hours sleep to find 5,000 new email messages about the 10 General threads I subscribed to, but maybe that's just me.

As for the telegrams, is it that onerous to log in every once in a while? If you're not interested enough to check it every so often, why should we be interested enough to create a bot to do it for you? We want live players behind our nations.

As for the *sigh*, I can't think of anything you could do that would make us less interested in seeing your point. Try making simple requests, sans the angst.

Good points all. I apologise for the melodrama. Probably should've posted it in General or even Spam.
