Highrise Backup

I no longer use Highrise, but when I did, I used this Python script to back up my contacts. Hope it’s helpful to someone.

Connecting Google Reader and podget

For some time, I’ve had a Perl script that runs regularly, backing up my Google Reader subscriptions using the standard OPML format: #!/usr/bin/perl # # Usage: # backup-google-reader-opml file-to-write-to.opml google-password use strict; use warnings; use WWW::Mechanize; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new(); $mech->get("") or die "Cannot reach Google Reader Homepage"; $mech->submit_form( form_number => 1, fields => { Email => $ARGV[1], Passwd => $ARGV[2] } ) or die "Cannot submit form"; $mech->get(""); $mech->save_content($ARGV[0]); However, I recently wrote another script (this time Python) that then takes this OPML, parses out all the URLs that are tagged with ‘podcast’, and outputs a serverlist file for podget (an automated console-based podcast downloader).
