It ran really fast yesterday, but something’s going on tonight for some reason.
I had to make some serious changes.
How’d you get around the block by Craigslist? CLSearch.org had something very similar, but Craigslist said he was crushing their servers and blocked his IP.
The primary difference is that I am not using RSS, but gzipped HTTP requests for the first page of results. This should be a lot less demanding than the full RSS feed.
I’m not trying to get anyone in trouble here, or develop any kind of widely publicized service. It’s a utility for me (I needed it for my nationwide job search) that I thought others might find useful too.
If the craigslist.org guys ask me to stop, then I’ll stop.
