thanks to Draknek who pointed me to this page which doesn’t require signing in and have more comprehensive stats. i have updated the script and now there is no need to provide a password. page fetching part was rewritten using only built-in ruby methods so mechanize gem isn’t needed as well.

some examples to demonstrate how it works:

ld20stats.rb example 1

ld20stats.rb example 2

get this script on github: https://gist.github.com/975928

enjoy! :)

    Thanks, dude. I was writing up a small XML parser to do the dirty work, and now I don’t have to!

    Long live laziness :D
