    Hey everyone, longtime lurker on BHW. Not sure if this is the right place to put this but I just created a neat tool I thought some of you might be interested in.

    I made this with Node and nightmare.js - essentially it scrapes all the gigs posted on craigslist in the computers section for any city you choose. You can hook this up to a cron job and email yourself the results at regular intervals. I've included all the instructions in the video tutorials and my blog.

    Open the video on YouTube for the show notes and github. BHW won't let me post links yet, because I'm a newbie.

    Quick question - why did you use this? How are you using the data?
