I wrote an app (took all morning until now) that tells me which shows and movies Amazon removed from Prime...

I forget why I wanted this... was it just to screw with Amazon because they rejected me....

The app is also going to tell me what movies/shows were added because they can't fucking sort them in chronological order by release date. I don't want movies from pre-1990s that were recently added...

Yes I could search for them manually but it's too fuckin tedious, gotta turn on like 10 filtering options...

And maybe I just want to run mini-DDOS attacks on their servers...

    @mundo03 no, it's really basic, just testing scraping works.

    Because it's a GUI app, how would you browse huge lists in command line.

    @billgates you simply amazon_movies [query] >> file.txt

    Maybe if I choose to finish it, I'll post it on GH as open source. Let anyone that wants to give a FU to Amazon the ability to spam them.

    Basically a self constructing botnet of disgruntled users?

    @billgates I'd be happy to make it chron compatible and generate a list of changes over time.

    @Techno-Wizard what's chronic? I haven't implemented the fill change scraping part.

    This uptown now it's just a POC to make sure I can actually scrape the data.

    Then need to implement the db/storage and wire up the actual GUI.

    @billgates chron? The standard Unix job scheduling system?

    @Techno-Wizard oh cron? I guess u could, just port it to Java.

    All I'm interested in is just making finding movie/shows that were just added/removed easier so I don't need to hunt though 100 items long lists to figure what actually was added/removed... Or be surprised when I find half my Watchlist unavailable
