Hurf Durf Data Eater
The infodump is nice and all, but what the world really needs is a script to download the dump automatically and put it into a structured DB. This is meant to be a tool to get the boring stuff out of the way of more awesome researching.. Dynamic graphs! Fast queries! Pants! Flash files with singing hamsters! On re-run the script doesn't download files that haven't been changed, nor does it re-insert most data into the database. cron lovers rejoice. Favorites not supported yet (lazy lazy). This is mainly for xnix. Some of the system calls may need de-idiotizing (replacing). Enjoy!

does anyone read the posts down here?

Happy Birthday!

I didn't realize it was for *us* - I'm constantly amazed at the awesomeness that gets done in the name of mefi.
