You've gotten further than me; I haven't been able to get DBWatcher to 
run for a few years using the network blast client; (when it was up, 
it was working like a champ though).

FIY, at a meeting here in La Jolla, Susan Chacko from NIH presented a poster
on an NIH in-house system called WHALES (sp?), which does alerts for 
both sequence searches and references too. I believe that once she hacks 
the code for more general use, she'll make the code (not the service!) 
available for others to use; I'll give you further info if interested.
