So I revisited the code that I originally wrote and did quite a bit of refactoring along with adding a stats counter that keeps track of pages visited and results found. The greatest inspiration came when my wife took interest and wanted to use it to do some job searches of her own, her only caveat was that she wanted the results to look a little prettier.
My next mini goal is to add the ability to parse arguments from the command-line so that it becomes a more general purpose tool. I think that I'll write a Jython wrapper to do this, I really like the simplicity of Python's optparse library.
I have this running on a daily cron. Each morning over breakfast I can no surf a customized set of job results. Yay!Tweet
