    I don't know if he carries a boat, but Larry the Cucumber has already been stranded on a desert island in "Larry's Lagoon", a sendup of Gilligan's Island. So at least he has some experience, though perhaps not enough to get him elected President...

      Being stranded on a desert island is an experience that counts positively for being elected President? Given that experience in Washington is viewed, by some pundits, as a detriment, Philip Nolan would be best suited of all Americans to run against Washington....

      hmm... well, I've been stranded on a desert island (twice, actually). Should I run for president? ;)

      I don't think I will - I'm not even american ;)

      But then again, maybe you guys could do with a non-american president.... ;)

    My assumption is that Larry Ellison would only travel to an island via one of his yachts.

[Corion]: Meh. I have a very simple mechanism to scrape+track prices, and even to send me mail if something changes (via cron), but SQLite doesn't support window functions, so my simple SQL to determine a price change won't work :-( Maybe I should store the DB ...
[Corion]: ... in Pg, but that would mean that I'd have to deal with credentials and stuff :)
[Corion]: In fact, the whole thing is just four simple programs, one App::scrape, another being DBIx::RunSQL, and one some glue to convert a JSON object into an SQL INSERT statement (+DBI connect/execute), so it would be an incredibly simple solution...
