    Dude.... Thank you!
    Just simply... Thank you! I had been meaning to do this for some time, but I haven't had time, nor enough full understanding of how to do this level of string manipulation and such with Javascript...

    Well, the whole thing is overwrought and probably memory-hungry, but it seems to work. Thankfully the nodelist is easy to figure out at a
    glance, and fairly well-documented where it isn't.

    I will be checking this out this week and putting it to a full line up of testing and integration into my developmental shell I use to develop shell-specific integrations. :)

    Now, I feel like this is a bit of a joke, but FWIW this is more or less
    a directory / phonebook and not something that would integrate with a shell. That said, one thing I will add to it is a command to send
    netmail to a given node (defaulting to the sysop) when viewing the
    list.

    Did you see the model I have on my system. It takes care of up to 10 different nodelists and has many different search features. Come take a look and you can understand.

    Be well...

    a look and you can understand.I did take a peek at FNLScan and decided
    to make something that simplified the search.

    (I could as easily clone
    FNLScan or NodeView entirely just to make a free alternative, if that's desired.)Can you tell me about how you configure it to look for your nodelists? Do you point it at static files, or does it just pick up
    the newest / highest-numbered one for each network?

    It picks up the highest ordinal day of each nodelist. Here is my cnf. file...
