The tagged questions atom-feed lags behind about 4 minutes and i probably do not need to mention how long those filter emails take. This won't do at all for competitive question answering, i demand instant notifications of some description!

(I am being serious by the way)


Edit: As this request is faring just fabulously i will in all likelihood have to whip up yet another script or micro-app to get me the questions directly from the html-pages. But don't expect me to share that with you downers who are in denial, ha!

I just realized I am 14 minutes late to the downvote bandwagon, damn atom feeds. –  user7116 Aug 31 '11 at 20:09
    
@sixlettervariables: I allow you to still downvote me :) –  H.B. Aug 31 '11 at 20:10
    
Oooh, a bandwagon. Wait for me! (Although I can kinda see the point. What good is real-time notification if it is 4 minutes behind? Seriously.) –  Pëkka Aug 31 '11 at 22:24
    
@EatmoreTwisters: Isn't that why i would want instant notifications, to not have this lag associated with the feed? –  H.B. Aug 31 '11 at 22:30

"Competitive question answering" isn't the point. I demand you get a life of some description!

You are too casual H.B.

I meant SO, i do not play any browser games besides it, i detest them passionately. –  H.B. Aug 31 '11 at 22:13
    
Gotcha now ;) I wouldn't call SO a browser game though, just the best MMORPG ever. –  Marcelo Aug 31 '11 at 22:15
    
Browser game is the type, MMORPG is the genre. –  H.B. Aug 31 '11 at 22:18

Damn those casual players...

Oh no, i just realized that i have been playing a browser game this whole time, i should be ashamed of myself.
