Some months ago, the service I was using to archive my tweets stopped working. Again. I noticed shortly thereafter, but no obvious alternative service seemed to be around, so I figured I'd have to do it myself. Then, you know, life happened.

I was stuck home today due to the aftermath of a particularly nasty headache, so while I was trying to see if I was coherent enough to do some work (which I did do later), I wrote a twitter script. It's not terribly clean or nice yet, but I started a cronjob running sending the formatted output to http://tko.dreamwidth.org. It may be terribly unwise given that I've been largely incoherent all day, but the code seems to work. It's strange how I can write code even when my brain isn't good for much else. I took 8 tries on an email, couldn't concentrate enough to read a book, but I wrote code I felt safe leaving in a cronjob posting to the internet? Perhaps my head's still not working right.

It needs a few pretty touches to make sure it's not losing tweets between days, deal with the timezone, usernames, urls, and retweets more nicely before I share it around. Still, though it's simple it seems worth sharing since I didn't find what I wanted when I looked. Where does one put such small open source scripts nowadays? Github?
