This is a very old post from my blog; so old that it was originally hosted on LiveJournal.

For the three of you who care, my Telegraph Fantasy Football team picker just got fiddled with.
I had gotten quite annoyed with having to find a machine with a Python interpreter and un-proxied internet access, then downloading the script, every time I wanted to run the damn thing. So I moved it all online!
The script itself now runs on a nightly cron job, so it should refresh its data every day. It generates a static HTML page which anyone can view, so several users can get one day’s results without running the script multiple times.
Also: This thing beat Alan Hansen and Jose Mourinho last week. Hah! Squishy famous football meatbags are no match for software!
