Hi,

My need is to allow the provider or administrator of an application to send one-way "messages" to users (such as announcements, simple notices, calls to actions, ...), defined as a piece of rich text or a web page. Such messages would appear at startup time, with a "don't show me again" check-box allowing to acknowledge each message individually. No sophistication, no tracking, no database stuff, each message would be defined by a file placed on a predefined network location, acknowledgements would be saved in the user registry.

Yes this is quite simple and I probably could do it. But, as often, you TMS guys would do it better and help me save time. Do you already propose a leightweight component prividing such kind of possibility ? If not, could you consider that, possibly as a complement to TWebUpdate or TWebPost ?
