This would probably be impractical due to the huge number of dormant accounts on here. There is an RHP feed on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/redhotpawn

I've been caught that way before. Now if something happens I click "back" in my browser to get the previous screen, copy the text and paste it into a Notepad document from where I can collect it later.
Not everyone reads the forums, in fact only a minority even go there. Many people leave themselves logged in for days at a time. Important announcements ...[text shortened]... on the playing screen, as it's the only one that is 100% guaranteed to be seen by everyone.

I bet Russ will pop in soon to tell us that there's a feature like that in the new UI he's releasing in Feb 2011.
