Maybe some of you know this service. It is online system for help and tips and tricks about Delphi programming. The main site of the service is: http://www.d-tnt.co.uk/

I was its user when I was Delphi programmer. Wink

The idea is to keep online database with programming help articles, tips and tricks where every user can post. Then on the users computer there is a client application that reads these articles and store them for offline read, search and browse. The client also allows writing new articles and automatically share them to the central database. Also the client provides direct access to the main D-TNT forum.

Simply to try the idea, you can download the application and give it a try it from the above site - it is free.

So, why not to make something similar for FASM. The good thing is that the database grows with users contributions almost without central control.

Regards.

that is a really nice idea
i guess we could have a win32 application viewer that sync cache the whole board.flatassembler.net phpbb database

update our database when somebody post or alter post and we could save a lot of bandwith coz no repeating download

and the final app could be use to all board site, not just the fasm board

my idea is a bit like the board newsgroup cache

a KILLER APP Smile

sincerely,
sulaiman chang

Hm, actually IMHO, there is no moderating, but as a rule the tips and tricks are pretty good. (at least I have one article in this database Twisted Evil ) Maybe the beginers simply dare not posting to the such central database.
Of course such system can be improved with some flags attached to every article: "beginers", "advanced", "experts", also some vote system where everyone can vote for the articles. Note, that posting is easy, but it needs some offline preprocessing. It is not equal to the posting to the forum.

Regards

I could create some system of this type in PHP, and host it on my website. Just only I need to know how exactly I'd have to create it Wink ...

If you give me the code I can implement it at
Kryogeniks.com has a ton of bandwidth I don't use.
