fun with netflix

netflix doesn't have any proper web services, but that's nothing a little perl magic can't fix. there's a "now viewing" section in the sidebar on my site's front page now, and you can see the gory details of my netflix queue, updated daily.

i'll add the history once i get it from netflix. (they only display the most recent three months, and send the full history via email.)

it could be interesting to generate an rss feed of netflix's recommendations.

oh, and this answers the question: “how the heck do you get 100 movies in your netflix queue?” there are only two (maybe three) movies in my queue that i have previously seen.
