Screw you, HuffPo

A friend sent me a link to an article on The Huffington Post. I clicked on the link. It was a text article, but there was some d%@$ talking head video at the bottom of the page that I COULDN’T TURN OFF! There didn’t seem to be a way to stop it.

That did not make me happy.

Solution? Grab the raw html document via the command line (using wget), load it into python, and grab the elements from the html that actually contain content, print that out in a separate file, and just read that.

Take that web 2.0.

I should just make that into a little command line script so I never have to mess with that HuffPo non-sense again. Bloody wankers.

  2. Bloody wankers? Channeling Spike from Buffy?
