Scripty snippetness. I wrote a script to help out some of my grad students, and to feed into a larger project. The script checks weblogs.com every 2.5 hours and updates a local copy of an updated blogs list. Not sure why anyone would need this, except maybe to build into a project of some sort.

Normal fair warning: I am a novice programmer for life. I’m sure there is a better way to do all of this. I also might have taken code from elsewhere (though I don’t think so in this case). You may recall that I used this to take a swing at update frequency of the average blog a few weeks back. This is the script I used for that. You can get it here either as source or binaries for Windows.

Also, hats off to Pilgrim’s Dive Into Python, which devotes a chapter to dealing with XML.
