Subject: Announce: Redditwatcher 0.1
While cleaning some dirs (it's springtime!), I thought that I could release
a little tool that I
made to record Reddit scores.

You run it on Reddit's new page and it starts following the stories that
appear, periodically
recording their score history (up votes, down votes, number of comments)
into marshalled
files.

You can extract the data in ASCII format and then plot it using gnuplot or
do pointless statistical
analysis using R.

It's made with Nethtml, Netstring, Equeue, etc. so you'd better have a GODI
around.

It scans the HTML tree using a few hand-made combinators to extract
information.  I'm sure
this can be done much more elegantly using Cduce etc. but here you go:
