Recently I've needed some way to find the links which were posted some time ago in one of chats from my contact list. So I made a simple tool which collects all the links from local Skype history, fetches web pages and indexes them. After indexing process is complete, user performs full-text search within indexed web pages.

I use 3-rd party Xapian/Omega for indexing and search. The tool itself took about one day of experiments + programming but is quite stable. The only problem is lengthy closing operation from within bulk fetching process. Also it requires a lot of traffic if you have a lot of links.

Finally, I find it quite useful if you have large skype chat history and from time to time need to return to some useful links posted months ago.
