I'm a firm believer in pair programming, test driven development, transparency, and free software.

I've been writing code since the early 2000s, but they've been paying me to do it since around 2007 or so.

The code on StackOverflow's 404 page was brought to you by yours truly.

@GeorgeDuckett You can pass the -t option to specify questions or answers or comments. I'm pretty sure you can only do one at a time though.

@Pureferret It's been a long time since I've done anything in Python. Have you tried using regular beautifulsoup instead of beautifulsoup4? Their home page implies that they might not be cross-compatible.

@George: I've put the updated code on code.launchpad.net/~mark.rushakoff/flackoverstow/0.2 ... I'm having issues with bzr/launchpad. I'd like to add you as an authorized user to the project (can't find the option), or at least maybe get the github equivalent of a pull request from you. Failing that, can I get a diff patch from you for the 2.4 fixes?

@Jeff and @George: I've updated the downloads on Google Code so that it uses API version 1.0, and so that you can specify any Stack Exchange site. I'm having trouble with SSH here at work, so I'll update Launchpad from home sometime in the near future.

@Jeff: I haven't been online much lately. I'll put some effort into updating the API version, and I don't think I'll host it on Launchpad anymore either. More likely to be Google Code, perhaps over my lunch break today.

@system: I sure did take my time. Now I'm manually decompressing the input and everything's back to working order.

@system: I'm getting the same error now, and the program hasn't been changed in several days. Oddly, I get garbage when I even use wget to retrieve the same URL. But Firefox opens it fine. I'll come back to it later tonight perhaps to investigate further.
