 saving bandwidth with watch.php ports per page + rss
Author: Benca

I've noticed that I've not been able to customize watch.php to only display a certain number of ports per page. I'm feeling that this is a bit of a waste of bandwidth for you guys, and a waste of time for people who visit the page :)

My PC gets laggy downloading/displaying such a huge page...and I prefer visiting it over the main page as the ports there don't usually interest me and if a port I use appears it can easily have scrolled off before I visit.

I have ~200 ports installed. Up to about ~10 are updated a day for a typical maximum...so adding an option to display 10/20/30/etc ports would benefit everyone a great deal.

I've also been thinking that most pages needs a variable the page could check for like "watch.php?rss=yes" so that people could check for their ports being updated without downloading html+graphics that also steal up freshport bandwidth!

Thanks :)
