I just submitted a database entry for kitchi (currently in Private status) and am looking for people to review and hopefully up-mod that entry.

kitchi is a program for Windows that automatically downloads news, weather, and/or friend-updates from internet RSS feeds to a scrolling LED sign. It can write HTML, marquee (html), and other local files for testing the application, though it's main purpose is for writing RSS to LED signs which are attached to a comport (or USB-to-comport adapter)

Here's a video demo of what it does:

Please review:

Thanks

First, welcome to the site.

Quote:
All you need is a one-line Alpha, two-line Alpha or Betabrite, or other scrolling LED sign and this software.

We admittedly have some specialty use programs here on the site, but I'd be very surprised if anyone here had the equipment necessary to test this.

If you have other programs you'd like to see us take a look at, you may want to post something in forums before adding them to the database.

Kitchi is a popular search at TPFC.

Really? I wouldn't have thought so.

Nevertheless, that's what TPFC homepage says. That accepted, what the hell is the kitchi entry still doing in the private database?

@Andrew: how much search traffic do we have? If it's not much, it's plausible that merely the clicks of the link in the OP (which is a search link) would bring kitchi to the Popular Searches box.

Please stop saying that. If you have an issue with the site search, please post in the thread on that topic or feel free to contact the admin directly. Keep in mind he is not getting paid to work on this site and neither am I.

It does not have the votes. I'm not going to vote for it because -- as stated above -- I don't have a way to test it.
