As I said, I did this in a hurry so I had no time to do any proper error handling. Every time it encounters an error, such as failing to save a news item, it will simply skip whatever it was trying to do that caused the error, meaning it won't save the news item in my example. So it is not a perfect app by any stretch of the imagination, but it does what I want it to. It will keep me posted on all things E3 without my browsing through numerous web pages from numerous websites and you can download it for free here!
EDIT: Sad to say, but the download link for this app is no longer working. Even I have lost the original code I wrote so I've lost the app permanently. The good news is I've gotten better at both making software and backing up my code and apps online so the links to the other apps on this page are working perfectly and things will only get better.

Instructions: To set this app as your default GIF image viewer, right click on any GIF picture on your hard drive, go to "Open With" then click on "Choose default program...". A dialog will open and display a few programs. Ignore them and click on the "browse" button. From there, follow the path (replace Tolu619 here with the user name that is logged in on your computer) "C:\Users\Tolu619\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\GIF Viewer Simple". You must have already installed the app, of course. Do this and the app will automatically open any GIF image you click on, while your default image viewer will open your other images. If you select multiple GIF images and hit the 'enter' key on your pc, each one will be displayed in a separate window as I didn't take the time to add tabs or any other feature. Here is the download link again. Let me know if it works ok on your pc.
