Default My geek programming skills may be useful!

Sorry this is a repost from a diff forum that got little attention, I wondered if it was because I put it in the wrong area... lemme try again here...:

I downloaded a boatload of beerxml files from a website called brew-monkey.com, I was thinking they'd be great for people to download and import into their app of choice that supports beerxml. I got permission from brew-monkey.com to upload them here so long as we credit his excellent work compiling this list. I basically coded a script to grab all the xml files into one file, then I split them out to a file per recipe. I just generically named them as recipe1.xml - recipe203.xml or whatever it was, a couple hundred recipe's. I also modified them w/ some form of the name from inside so I have them w/ filenames that match the beer as well... or the name someone gave it. Anyone interested? Is there a way we can post the zip files here for people to download?

It was a decent amount of really geeky fun work, but I'd like others to gain from my geekyness

What did you write the script in? It's funny how fun
the process of creating a little program is. Especially
when it's actually doing something very useful!

I'm always interested in organized hobby datas

I don't know if it's possible, but, it sure would be nice.

so, just so i understand, your script splits the recipes into individual xml files and then we could do an xml import into beer alchemy or something like that? Interesting, geeky, but interesting

well I already ran the script, I now have a couple hundred xml files that can be imported into anything that supports beerxml... I don't know if any mods know if we can upload files here for download or not? If not, and anyones interested, I can probably just email them to you...

A filehosting site could help, but the lifespan of the link will be limited.
