Slightly OT: Refresh Rate for IE

I want Internet Explorer to automatically refresh the NYW cam page every minute to keep up with the changing cam image. Anyone know how to do this other than pressing F5 every minute?

It can be done, but it involves editing the registry. I advise against it, since there's no way of restricting it to just one page. Your computer operations would slow to a crawl every time you had IE running. -- Ernie

Use a program called My Function Keys
www.regsoft.com/keys
Map one of the Function keys (not f5) to be this :
{SLEEP 60}X}
Where X is the number of times you want to refresh it.
The only thing is - the IE window would have to stay the active window when you do it.

A fairly simple way to do this would be to create your very own web page that resides on your local hard drive and is designed to refresh itself every minute. Here are the steps:
1.) Open up Notepad or your editor of choice. 2.) Place the following code into the empty file: (do not include the dashes) --------------------- <HTML> <HEAD> <META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="60, URL=http://www.newyankee.com/yankeecam.shtml "> </HEAD> <FRAMESET> <FRAME NAME="NYW" SRC="http://www.newyankee.com/yankeecam.shtml "SCROLLING="AUTO" FRAMEBORDER="NO"> </FRAMESET> </HTML> --------------------- 3.) Save the file to your hard drive and give it a name like NYW.HTML 4.) Now simple double-click and open this file. It will automatically launch your browser and begin refreshing every minute. Store a shortcut to it on your desktop for easy access.
The only requirement here is that your browser support frames.

I replaced the URL links below with

to get just the pic in my browser.

Anyone want to request to the NYW people that they insert some code into their page to automagically refresh their page?
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="60">
Or have they considered that, and their ISP frowns on such code?

Go grab the free version of Opera browser - it has this function (reload every...) built in - has a range of 5 seconds to 30 mins, and one minute is specifically mentioned in the option list.
Works fine here! Opera is a really friendly browser like that. Quite a rich features set too. Not that easy to change to any new browser at first, but give it a fair and honest two weeks and see what you think of it then.
Hope this helps
