slogger dumps full html (including images etc) of pages you visit to a
directory of your choice where GDS picks it up. interestingly, it shows up in the browser history category (probably based on the .html)


also, in a test a new page was indexed within a minute (or less). GDS
seems to have some file alteration monitor.


setup was a piece of cake, just install slogger and configure it, done.

i didnt. i will try shutting down trillian for a bit and setting the last
last modified date (i assume that is the trick) to make GDS pick it up.






(Jon Udell takes advantage of the Lazy Web to find the same solution.)

Do you know any other hacks to extend GDS support to popular applications?
