I registered at one host listed as being able to run python scripts only to find after spending quite some time solving their anti-robot captcha that the hosting account is only avaible IF you post on their forum(10 times or so) AND request the afore-mentioned account, *laughter*
Then I stumbled upon this one:
Yes! You can access external website using scripts(or even wget, according to them)… but only thos on the whitelist which does not include wordpress.com(it does, however, include a subdomain(individual blog) called breakingcode.wordpress.com, didn’t read didn’t like)
So… back to square one… throwing the task of crawling to users…
Of course, I could use my own connection to crawl but… it’s just so slow and only gets decent after midnight… sort of sad.
