I'm brainstorming on how to create a perlmonks node grabber.
Since you can download nodes in sequential order, it shouldn't
be too hard to just request a set of numbers until you hit
a "Not Found", and then display the last 10 or so.
However, I don't want to create so much useless traffic on the site,
essentially stabbing in the dark to find out what the last
node is. I'm trying to figure out a way to figure out the
latest node quickly and efficiently. Anyone got any ideas?
Or, Vroom, you could add a perlmonks.xml backend to the
site that could be slurped every 30 minutes by the more obsessed
