If I may steer this thread back to the subject matter, web scraping:

https://github.com/StevenMaude/nitroradical

This is a scraper for BBC iplayer which is a highly regarded service by those who have or used to have access to BBC services. There always was a thing about Ireland (where I'm from) and the UK, because the BBC took carenot to gift us their signal. Our 20th century tv aerial erectors rose to the Challenge, using fiercely directional UHF aerials, high aerials, towers, and filters to great effect. I worked for a few years in tv repair, and sorted alot of reception issues. Then it all went digital, and the party was over. We had to pay for some service.

Now, here's the modern way: Nitroradical.py scrapes the bbc iplayer. Line 1 needs modifying unless /usr/bin/python points at python3. Usage is
Code:
nitroradical.py <classification>
e.g. 'nitroradical.py films'
