Why This Page

This is a temporary hack, until I have time to decode the data they send and do it right.

These are ad-hoc links to successive pages in their collection without their "let them eat cake" access killer.

Why This Page

An ancient historian once remarked that "All the Athenians ... spent their time doing nothing but talking about and listening to the latest ideas." I think the tech staff at came from Athens, their greatest joy in life seems to be using the latest ideas in web technology, so that nothing works on any browser but the very latest. When those of us who don't have the budget for a new computer every two years complain, their tacit response (in the words of Marie Antoinette, when told that "the people have no bread") is "Let them eat cake."

Fortunately, part of the "latest and greatest" is an API so that other programmers can do unusable stuff too. Their documentation says it requires Unix and Python -- if you give a Unix programmer a program to write, and there are two ways to do it, and one of them is easy to use, the Unixie will always choose the other way; if there is only one way to do it, and it is easy to use, the Unixie will still choose the other way -- but they failed this time (probably because Unix makes people stupid). Their API is ordinary internet URLs that return plain text. Some of them, they intercepted the data to do skanky things to it, but some of them still work. Unix and Python are not needed, an ordinary browser works fine, and an ordeinary web server (with a small amount of ordinary PHP, which every web server supports) can do everything needed.
