Automatic Medal Table Update

Hi,

I wrote a Perl program for the automatic update (real time) of the medals table in the current Olympics games in the Spanish Wikipedia page. The code is published on its own page on Wikipedia.

It is only a concept test, but it's working very well.

Enjoy!

Update: new link.

      I get 4: Login Failure - WrongPass at Vancouver2010.pl line 61.

      Nevermind that one, I needed my own account, duh. Now, however, Can't use an undefined value as a HASH reference at /lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10/MediaWiki/API.pm line 512, <DATA> line 83. ?

      Updated with solution, new error message ::sheesh::

      HTH,
