Good God, I am good...

I had a list of entries that never got tracked because of my host being assholes, which comes to about three months worth of stuff..

The entries I scraped off Day pages ages ago, but there's tens of thousands of comments there that I don't have in my database..

Until now.

Turns out, writing some code to render LJ pages as big fat chunks of data wasn't at all hard, and with some iterative exploding I've managed to get it so that my website can say "Give me an entry that seems to have no comments, I'll look it up using the right combination of arguments and grab the lot".

If only I'd thought of that, say, eighteen months ago when I started doing all this.. Of course, I'd never have been able to implement any of it at the time, but still...
